Library of Congress Policy on Detainees: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-fired-20101206,0,2574412…

Retired Air Force Col. Morris […] Davis served from 2005 to 2007 as the U.S. military‘s chief prosecutor at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, home to some detainees whose prosecution is a subject of heated national debate.

But after Davis wrote two opinion pieces harshly criticizing the administration’s detainee policies last year, he was abruptly fired by the Library of Congress. He lost his post as a senior specialist for the Congressional Research Service, a library agency that provides policy analysis for the House and Senate.

A year later, Davis is fighting to get his job back. In a lawsuit against the library filed in January, he claims he was wrongly fired for exercising his right to free speech. Supporters as diverse as the left-leaning New York Times editorial page and conservative Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have backed him.

The Fear of Anyone Saying Anything doesn’t just apply to Radical Students living in squats and wearing idiotic crocheted hats.
