Who is Michael Mukasey?
Mukasey was the judge presiding over the 1993 WTC bombing case of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman.
Mukasey was the judge presiding over the insurance dispute between Larry Silversrein and the WTC insurers.
Mukasey was a doner to the Guiliani and Leiberman campaigns, and his son works for Guiliani's law firm.
More recently, Mukasey appointed a lawyer to Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen who was arrested in 2002 on a supposed mission to detonate a "dirty bomb."
Before the hearing on whether there was sufficient cause to detain Padilla, Bush declared him an enemy combatant. That began a years-long legal ordeal that ended with Padilla back in a different federal court, where he was convicted last month of murder conspiracy.
Nothing can stop the march of an informed people.
