Reading the news these days is enough to make you wonder if Alex Jones is on to something. Maybe we are living in an augmented reality, because there is no way this next story can be real.
Attorney Neal Katyal, the former acting solicitor general of the United States during the Obama administration, is most widely known as the lawyer who volunteered to defend Osama bin Laden’s body guard Samir Hamdan…for free. Yes, you read that correctly.
Now it appears that Obama’s mindless pet is doing his master’s bidding yet again, joining the deep state’s fight against the Trump administration’s travel ban.
From Washington Free Beacon:
Katyal, whose name was once floated as a possible Obama Supreme Court nominee, but whose consideration was ultimately withdrawn due to perceived trouble that his nomination would encounter in the Senate, argues in Hawaii’s filing that this new executive order suffers from the same legal problems of the original order.
Neal Katyal sued the U.S. government in 2006 on behalf of Osama Bin Laden’s bodyguard, Samir Hamdan in the landmark legal case Hamdan v. Rumsfeld. In his arguments however, Katyal made several questionable arguments, including equating the criminal justice rights of legal U.S. green card holders to captured foreign al Qaeda terrorists under the military commission system at the time.
Adding another layer of weird to this already bizarre story is the fact that Katyal made a brief appearance as a lawyer in an episode of the Netflix series House of Cards.
Is it possible Katyal was inspired to do this treasonous act because of his work on a show that literally revolves around the devious actions of Democrats? This whole situation reads like an episode of the scandalous show.
Katyal, a known defender of terrorists, is now working on behalf of our terrorist sympathizing former president to halt a travel ban meant to protect this country from terrorists.
This story only proves once again that truth is oftentimes much stranger than fiction. Save us, Alex Jones!
