Holder Protects Terrorists' Lawyers, Ignores Abuses of Disabled Americans

Obama's Attorney General refuses to identify attorneys employed at the Justice Department who represented enemy combatants detained at Guantanamo prison. His hypocrisy is at a high level on this issue. Why did he and previous Attorneys General refuse to address severe abuses of persons accused of mental illness in this country but protect lawyers who advocate for enemy combatants? Persons with disabilities have not committed any crime. They are allegedly ill and abused by lawyers, courts, police, human services corporations and just about all humans in the country. But enemy combatants get attorneys to protect their rights to kill Americans while persons with disabilities are openly abused while journalists remain silent. What's up with that Mr. Holder? You protect the reputations of lawyers who protect the rights of enemy combatants but ignore serious institutionalized abuses of victims with disabilities? What are your priorities?
