Here, Senator James Risch (R-ID), reads a quote from Barack Obama from 2008 that would very much contradict the decision to go into Libya. Risch then asks Koh if Obama still believes it. You can guess what happens next. Koh minimizes the statement while asserting that the war in Libya is legal.
Via the Daily Caller:
In 2009, Islamic expert Daniel Pipes wrote about Koh's views about things such as Sharia law. He quotes from a New York Post article that is no longer available online but here is the relevant portion:
...what brings Koh to attention here is his apparent endorsement of Islamic law within the American court system. Clyne writes:The U.S. State Department appears to be fully on board with a policy in Libya that involves backing the Muslim Brotherhood. We are left to conclude practically nothing else. Hillary Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff - and closest adviser - Huma Abedin has familial ties with the Brotherhood; senior adviser Alec Ross told a crowd in London last week that the Arab Spring is 'leaderless' and the result of internet technology that is the 'Che Guevara' of the 21st century; now we have the State Department's top lawyer Harold Koh - who endorses the application of Sharia Law in the U.S. - saying that the operation in Libya is lawful.
A New York lawyer, Steven Stein, says that, in addressing the Yale Club of Greenwich in 2007, Koh claimed that "in an appropriate case, he didn't see any reason why sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States."
We already know Hillary endorses the war because she rhetorically asked Congress last week, 'Whose side are you on?'
Anyone feel infiltrated yet?
