Toughest criminal defense job in U.S.

On Wednesday July, 22, I was honored to host lawyer Walter Ruiz at our Central Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers meeting.

Walter, a former lawyer in my office and a Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve, was assigned to defend "war on terror" detainees who are being held in the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay.

The information Walter was allowed to share with us (he is legally bound to keep some information secret) raised disturbing questions about the "war on terror" and fundamental human rights.

In this post I will share links to some excerpts from his presentation.
