A reader from Florida, Shane Hockin, writes: “Thanks for the link regarding the [military] defense attorneys for the Guantanamo detainees. It
was very interesting. I work for prosecutors, so it is not very often that I get to say something
nice about defense attorneys, but those guys are what the system is all about.
“I believe in the defense-attorney ideal to assure people a fair trial, though occasionally we
end up with guilty parties on the street. I hope these guys can give us justice, and I admire their
honesty. It would have been easy for them to take their money, do a shoddy job, and make the
government happy.” He adds: “The link to the animated music was pretty cool, too!”
