J. Michael Waller of the Center for Security Policy reports on another constituency for Obama:
A group of lawyers suing the United States to extend constitutional rights to enemy combatants detained in Guantanamo has endorsed Obama. Even more, the signatories say they "have been working closely with Senator Obama."
As if that isn't bad enough, one of the signatories who claims to have worked with Obama is head of a notorious legal activist group that has spent decades defending convicted terrorists and cop-killers.
I wonder what the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) has to say about that since its September endorsement of Obama. NAPO says it represents "more than 2,000 police unions and associations" and "241,000 sworn law enforcement officers."
No word yet on whether ACORN has registered the detainees to vote.

Update from Ed Lasky:
Greg Craig is a senior adviser to the Obama campaign and has been "tipped" to have a bright future in the State Department should Obama become President . He also represented John Hincley, Ronald Reagan's would be assassin; he also represented Pedro Gonzales Pinzon, a Panamaian lawmaker wanted in the US for the murder of a US soldier, and the attempted murder of another. He represented Kofi Annan during the Volker Commission's investigation in 2004 of the oil-for food scandal. He also had as a client the Cuban father of Elian Gonzales during the custody dispute that generated so much controversy during the Clinton years. Elian was returned to Castro's Cuba.
One more lawyer who has an interesting stable of clients who is in the Obama court.
