Phillip Carter on Michael Chertoff

Phillip Carter has a good article up on Slate defending Michael Chertoff---I Like Mike. Phil goes through Chertoff's record and demonstrates how he has been a moderating influence on the Bush Administration's pursuit of terrorists through the legal system. I have heard much of the same thing about Chertoff. The characterization of Chertoff as an administration hack is intellectually dishonest and wrong. When he was appointed to the 3rd Circuit, many of the law professors at UNC, including Prof. Mueller, were worried, not about him as a judge, but about the loss of the moderate voice at DOJ.
