Binyam Mohamed

There's an item in the news today that Binyam Mohamed in on a plane back to Great Britian, after spending several years in Guantanamo. I have no direct knowledge of the merits of his case, but I *do* know know something about Mr. Mohamed's defense counsel.

Her name is Yvonne Bradley, and she was a classmate of mine at Notre Dame Law School, class of '87. She is now a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Air Force (Reserve) JAG Corps. She is also an excellent attorney and a thoroughly decent human being. So, if you any of you hears someone say that the Gitmo detainees do not get *first-class* legal representation, tell them to *think* *again*.
