Justice Department Lawyer To Congress: ‘The President Is Always Right’

Thanks to

The Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday heard testimony from Steven Bradbury, head of the Justice Department’s office of legal counsel. When questioned by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) on whether the President’s interpretation of the
Hamdan case was right or wrong, Bradbury replied, “The President is always right.” Watch it

Bradbury served from 1992-1993 as a law clerk for Bush I appointed Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and since then has been a Bush apologist.

Steven Bradbury has stated that the president has the authority to order someone who has not yet been charged as a terrorist to be killed on the grounds of being a terrorist.

He has defended Bush's use of covert propaganda on unsuspecting Americans in the form of video news releases produced by the Pentagon, State Department and at least 18 other US agencies.
