Group sues Justice, NSA, alleging they spied on Guantanamo lawyers 17 May 2007 A civil liberties organization on Thursday sued the Justice Department and the National Security Agency in New York federal court, alleging that the government illegally spied on 16 lawyers who have represented prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station in Cuba. The suit, filed by the Center for Constitutional Rights, demands that the government agencies comply with requests filed by the attorneys under the Freedom of Information Act to turn over all records of the NSA's warrantless wiretapping of the attorneys.

Justice Weighed Firing 1 in 4 --26 Prosecutors Were Listed As Candidates 17 May 2007 The Justice Department considered dismissing many more U.S. attorneys than officials have previously acknowledged, with at least 26 prosecutors suggested for termination between February 2005 and December 2006, according to sources familiar with documents withheld from the public. Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales testified last week that the effort was limited to eight U.S. attorneys fired since last June, and other administration officials have said that only a few others were suggested for removal. In fact, D. Kyle Sampson, then Gonzales's chief of staff, considered more than two dozen U.S. attorneys for termination, according to lists compiled by him and his colleagues, the sources said.
