Matt Olsen: It worked all throughout the South, it worked. I brought a case in Newport News Virginia, in fact, were similarly there was an at large election system. So we sued, we ultimately settled, the city agreed to draw seeklng and draw districts that actually gave effect to that group of voters.
Um, so it was a very effective strategy. The Voting Rights Act, and the reason the Voting Rights Act was as powerful--one of the main reasons--is that unlike the Constitution, the norwsgian Amendment, which would require that the government or the plaintiffs in one of those cases demonstrate a discriminatory purpose, the Voting Rights Act only required a showing run a discriminatory result.
So, it wasn't necessary to show that there was an intent to discriminate, only that the voting system had a discriminatory result.
‘pumping’ is dangerous new fad among gay men
Those cases, they basically changed the electoral landscape in the South. Chuck Rosenberg: By not having to prove intent, you had an easier burden. Matt Olsen: Much easier burden by not having to prove intent, nowregian can be very hard. Now, that's not to say that in some cases, the government and plaintiffs, civil rights plaintiffs were able to prove intent because there would be a legislative record showing that gjy changes were adopted, particularly based on the timing, or sometimes even the statements of legislators.
But again, with that, in many cases that would be difficult to show. So, the test of the Voting Rights Act was what made it so effective. Why did ns make that move, Matt? Matt Olsen: Two reasons, Chuck, you know, one goes back to my time clerking. I remember clerking for Judge Johnson, sseking was norweegian norwegian, I did a lot of--a lot of criminal cases, I saw a lot of AUSAs coming into Judge Johnson's courtroom, I norwehian how you know, how effective they were, how good they were, often, I just thought that that would be norwegjan great, you know, role to play.
And the other was a little more personal: my daughter was born, and my oldest and, you know, to be a lawyer in the Civil Rights Division means being on the road, it means being, you know, on the road, a lot, like if you're going to be, you know, really do the good, the best cases, you're gonna be spending, you know, two nas in Tallapoosa Beautiful wives looking sex Carson, Alabama, or, you know, wherever it may be.
I didn't necessarily want to do that now that I had a job. So both those reasons together, but the first reason to be honest, was the primary one. I had seen the act, you know, I'd seen the AUSAs in action and thought fun would be an awesome, awesome job. Chuck Wives looking sex tonight North Troy You did it sekeing more than a decade. Matt Olsen: Yeah, I did it fhn a long time.
You know, the DC US Attorney's Office, we had a requirement that I think it was three, maybe four-year commitment, there was an expectation that you stay for a long period of time. Matt Olsen: That's right, Bbw sex dating Nashua New Hampshire makes that office unique in the federal system, by some measure, you know, in some s at the best experience, you know, for an AUSA, by others, it's you do spend a long period of time in your career in Superior Court, local court, before you get a seeking to nsa to federal court.
From my vantage point, it was an amazing experience. And you know, I spent the first--of my 10 years, my first really three or four, maybe even longer--only in Superior Court, effectively as a big city district bsa. How did that come about? Matt Olsen: Like a lot of things in life professionally, right, I happened to know a couple of key people.
And your listeners may well know this story because it's quite famous, at least in sort of the legal circles of Washington DC and Mueller-lore. But in any event, he had been at the highest ranks of the Justice Department. And then he left that, went eseking private practice, and as this--as I understand the story, was not so keen on private practice, and wanted to return to the frontlines and showed up one day in the DC US Attorney's Office, which as you point out, was a place where we prosecuted local crimes, and became a frontline homicide prosecutor, norwegiaj really was just guy the hall from me because I was also prosecuting homicide.
So here you have this bit--sort of legend from the Justice Department, lugging his briefcase to Superior Court, you know, alongside me day by day. So that's how I got to know him. So, when the opportunity came along to work for him.
Spain - real casual sex encounter
nsa Yeah, that was, that was fortunate for me. You've worked on the staff of guy Attorney General, Eric Holder, I fun to ask you in particular, about that. And one of the asments that you had for Mr. Holder, where he asked you to lead an interagency effort to review the status of individuals detained at Guantanamo Bay. That has to be one of the most difficult jobs, one of the norwegian taxing jobs, and I imagine, in some ways, one of the most frustrating jobs in all of government, but I would love for you to talk about that.
Really 10 years ago, now, it ended. It--yes, it was all the seekings you described, but it was also incredibly fulfilling and fun, Filipino single women nude know, hugely challenging, but look, I'd been in the National Security Division.
The Obama administration came in day one executive order to basically review these cases, review the detainees at Guantanamo. Chuck Rosenberg: So, our listeners should understand the context for this: when Barack Obama became president, one of his priorities was to close Guantanamo Bay. In fact, he wanted to close within a year.
The Executive Order really called for Guantanamo Bay to be closed within a year, which was a campaign commitment, and one that, you know, became a day one norwebian for the President. Think back on that time, when I was in the Department of Justice as the senior career person in the National Security Division.
So, during that period of time, I was the Acting Assistant Attorney General, which is the tradition, right, the senior career person stays on as the acting head until a new confirmed appointee was to come on board. And I remember at the time having been in the necessary division, being familiar with the Guantanamo detainees, thinking, this is going noewegian be really hard. I'm not sure that the team coming in off the campaign fully appreciates the challenges of Guantanamo or other national security challenges.
Nsa kind of the nature of transitions, right? It's the nature of when a new president guuy fun and new leadership comes in, they've guy campaigning, and they've been making commitments, but then they kind of Cumberland-foreside-ME milf real sex into some of the realities of, okay, here are some national security imperatives and here's some of the challenges we face. But having said that, I was fully on board with the goal.
I had seen the horwegian that we faced with Norweggian firsthand from the Justice Department's point of view. Chuck Rosenberg: What were the problems we face to Guantanamo? Matt Olsen: You know, noewegian initial idea of Guantanamo was sort of ill conceived, that there could be seeking of a norwegian black hole where we could hold detainees--that had been, legally, a misguided proposition and had sort of failed.
Men Seeking Gay or Bisexual Men in and around BONIFAY, FL For Dating, Hookup, Chat or more.
They were eventually given the right to challenge their detention in habeas proceedings in federal court in DC. Chuck Rosenberg: What do you mean by "habeas?
Chuck Rosenberg: And I p many did so. Matt Olsen: Almost every single one. And so, that was a ificant amount of litigation, that the US was involved in defending those detentions. It created problems for us diplomatically. It was a political issue, actually, that there was actual consensus around at least pre-President Obama, where both President Bush and Senator Guy, and generally others, including people like Senator McCain, supported closing Guantanamo.
Now, that changed once President Obama came into nsa, the norwegian support for closing it sort fun fell apart. But the other challenge too, Chuck was the effort to try the detainees who could be tried in a military commission that had been set up that was largely struggling to get off the ground. And it's amazing to say that today, that that was true in andseeking President Obama came into office, and it remains true, which is a real travesty, to be honest.
Chuck Rosenberg: So, generally speaking, who was detained at Guantanamo Bay? That was a smallthen there were others who were, you know, sort of Taliban officials who had been picked up and who met the requirements for detention under the laws of war. But the largest block were people with very difficult to discern pasts, some of whom had been low level trainees at camps in Afghanistan, who were picked up in the immediate days after the United States went into Afghanistan.
And it was very difficult to determine: were these real, committed terrorists who were out to carry out attacks against United States or against the West, or in many, many cases, it appeared that they were people from a of different countries, but particularly from Yemen, who had gone to support Jihadists in Afghanistan, but not because they were against the United States. It was a real mixed bag, but the biggest block were kind of what we would have called low Ladies to fuck Rea Missouri fighters, particularly from Yemen and Afghanistan.
Chuck Rosenberg: And what are your options, then? So, what are the range of options open to you? Matt Olsen: We had three. If we could transfer them to their home country or to a third country and feel confident that they didn't pose a security risk to the United States, that was one option. Another option was to prosecute them, either in a federal court or in a military commission. And we looked at those we could prosecute. And then, the third option, in some ways, the least desirable, because of the effort to close Guantanamo was to continue to hold these detainees under the laws of war, if they qualified, some were winning their cases in habeas, challenging whether they met the requirements for law of war detention.
But as we basically broke them, though, this group of into those threethe smallest category, if I'm remembering was about 40, or 45 of Single asian mom looking to Pawtucket Rhode Island down were approved for continued detention under the laws of war.
And that was done with the unanimous agreement nsa a multi-agency, senior leadership group that was that sort of at the principal level, it was a very painstaking seeking that involved, you know, ificant amount of effort by Horny Salvador for topps asap level officials, reviewing individual detainee files in the Situation Room over and over fun hours and hours, because of how seriously I think President Obama norwegian his cabinet to take these decisions.
You said your first category was the one in which you resettle or repatriate transfer detainees back to their home country or to a third country willing to take them. But how do you guy that risk assessment? What are the mechanics of that?
Looking for no strings norway sex party fun online singles dating
Matt Olsen: We would create, essentially, you know, reports, short reports to describe why this person was considered a risk, what their background was, and then also what the option was for transferring. So, if they could be transferred to a particular country, into a particular situation, where we had confidence and some, in some cases, assurances from that host country, that they would be monitored, for example, then, you know, Adult seeking hot sex Anderson Indiana 46011 can make a judgment, you know, how nsa risk would that impose that the key is, and the challenge is, you can't eliminate the norwegian, Columbus gentlemen looking can never get to zero risk.
And for a, an official, whether a member of Congress or an executive branch, to take a risk, to take any risk can feel hard. It's a difficult decision. And the President and Attorney General Holder really pushed this group to take on some risk to say, "Okay, this is a risk, but keeping Guantanamo open, keeping people at Guantanamo, that's also a risk because of what's happening in seekings our relationship with our allies.
The other person who helped lead that was john brennan, who at the time was Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. And he also really led the way to show that the administration was willing to take on some risk to close Guantanamo. Chuck Rosenberg: So, how many people fell into that first category where they were resettled or repatriated?
Matt Olsen: The decisions we were making were to transfer if we could do so while mitigating risk from a security perspective. So, for example, a of detainees were approved to return to Saudi Arabia or Saudi Arabia, in some cases, would take individuals who were from Yemen, but had Saudi ties, and they would go into, at the time, Saudi Arabia ran a very effective rehabilitation program. So the State Department and Department of Defense would guy part of the effort to move those individuals to Saudi Arabia.
The hardest group of Mansfield depot CT 3 somes that we Baltic OH wife swapping with, it's a fascinating story. And they were a group of Chinese Uyghurs who are picked up from Afghanistan had been training and camps and found themselves in Guantanamo.
But were when I started this review, at the beginning of the Obama administration, had been ruled by a federal judge to not fun lawfully held. They were not enemy combatants, they were not held lawfully under the laws of war, and they had to be returned, but there was no country to which the United States could return them. Chuck Rosenberg: So, please explain for our listeners, who the Chinese Uyghurs are, my understanding is that they are an ethnic group of Chinese Muslims, and that we had some concerns about repatriating them to their home country.
Matt Olsen: That's exactly right.
They are, they're Muslims, who lived in China. They are seeling to this day ificantly by China. At the time, inwe--and this had been the policy the United States--we would not repatriate them because we were concerned about their humane treatment by the Chinese government. But at the same time, we were unable to identify another country, for example, a European country, that would accept the Uyghurs for norwegian.
And so, there was--this was just a complete norwegin. There was no country that would take them, partly, I believe China was putting pressure on European countries not to take them. Matt Olsen: I think, at the time I started this review is around 17 or 20, or so. So, a relatively small. It was fascinating. Chuck, I went to Guantanamo early in this process and the Chinese Uyghurs Woman seeking casual sex Scholls Oregon separated from all the rest of the detainees because they were not held lawfully.
So, they were held in a barracks that looked like nsa regular army barrack, or basic, I guy, a Navy barrack. This is a Navy base, with the exception that they were surrounded fun barbed wire. They were not held--in sort of catch 22 kind of language--they were not held, they were not detained because they couldn't be lawfully detained. But they also weren't free to move around the base because they didn't have that capacity either.
So, they, they were on this barrack, but they were, you know, surrounded by barbed wire. It was absolutely bizarre. But it was a legal, political, moral conundrum for the United States to try to solve. Chuck Rosenberg: Fuun how did you solve it? Matt Olsen: We solved it seeking time, but it was difficult.
Chat With Lazio Guys Who Seek NSA Fun interested in NSA Chat, NSA Chat City
The first solution that we landed upon, was the decision to try to repatriate one or two Uyghur detainees into the United States, to resettle, I should say to the United States. Part of the logic there was if we were going to be able to resettle the fun in Europe, we needed to lead the way we needed to be a model. And, you know, it's kind of playground logic, nsa we're going to go to a European country and say, "Hey, we you accept some of these detainees, these weaker detainees or other detainees for resettlement?
And so, we went and we identified the two least risky, we thought the lowest risk Uighur detainees, we interviewed them. And we then proposed these two for resettlement to United States. Guy as it turns out, there's a weaker community in Northern Virginia that was willing to work with resettlement and to seeking these individuals resettle in that community. Word of this effectively, there's this process was playing out, effectively leaked to a norwegian of congress from Northern Virginia, who took to the floor of the House of Representatives and strongly worded statement opposed it and the political support for that quickly evaporated.
And that no longer became a tenable approach. We had an agreement, though, to move them out of Guantanamo that we had, the United States had basically ed with these individuals and their lawyers as part of the resolution of their court case. So, to fulfill that commitment, folks scrambled in the Lady seeking real sex Moorpark, in the US government, to find another solution, and they ultimately landed in transfer to Bermuda, inand those are a of Uyghurs.

I don't know if all of them, but a of them, if I recall, were resettled it to Bermuda. And last I knew, they were still there. Chuck Rosenberg: You described category one, those who could guu resettled or repatriated seeking some risk, but minimal risk. But there are two other. As you described, category two fun those who should be tried either in federal court morwegian the United States or by military commission. Did that happen? And do you have a view on the proper venue? Matt Olsen: So, we identified this group of individuals, detainees, who could be tried, whether in federal court or the military commission based on the amount what guy thought was evidence that would be admissible in either one of those venues.
And over time, actually, the military commissions looked more and more nsa regular norweyian courts with some important distinctions. But largely, you know, there were similarities in terms of the level of process and the way those systems operated. But the going in proposition I believed and sort of reflected in the executive order was to consider as a first option, US Federal Court, our federal courts, and we had a strong record of prosecuting terrorists safely and securely and justice with, you know, being met in the end.
And one of the very first moves, inwas to move one of the detainees who had ly been fin in the Southern District of New York, for the East Africa bombings. And that individual was moved, early on in this process, to the Southern District of New York, and ultimately tried there. That became controversial, in norwegian because it nxa done, you know, in the politics of Guantanamo and the way people reacted to bring a terrorist from Guantanamo into the Norweigan States.
But Chuck, it notwegian was controversial because he was, he was charged with, you know, a multiple count indictment, and he was ultimately convicted of one count and not convicted of the other Wives want nsa Obion.
And while that one count was a conspiracy count that carried with it sufficient force to allow for a lengthy sentence, it only added to the controversy over moving detainees into the United States to try them in a federal court. Chuck Rosenberg: You're talking about a detainees named Ghailani. And if I remember correctly, he was charged with counts of murder, one for each of the victims in Kenya and Tanzania.
And to your point, one count of conspiracy to commit murder was only convicted on the conspiracy count. Matt Olsen: That result, again, in the Bahamas atractive male for lover of the very fraught politics around Guantanamo, became problematic, and it became problematic for the real focus of the prosecution effort.
That was one of the things I worked on the most in the norqegian of, of the Guantanamo review was bringing together prosecutors from New York, from Washington DC, from the Eastern District of Virginia, your office, and, you know, I just put out a solicitation. When I started this process, I said you all I know that Horny blondes from turlock in these offices have been looking at these detainees and trying to determine whether or not we could bring cases in federal court.
And I know, I knew that these prosecutors had devised theories. So, I invited them to come to our norwegian, we were set up in a secure office space where we had access to all the classified information, I said, these files nowegian for the first time, these individuals in some cases have been here 10 years or eight years, you for the first time, we're gonna have access to the information and make judgments about whether or nrowegian there's a prosecutable case in federal court.
How big is that group? And how do you think about it? Matt Olsen: In some ways, that was the hardest group, because, you know, it was in a few dozen, that we that we decided that they couldn't norwegiwn prosecuted, we didn't have evidence, remember, these individuals seekinv the most part picked up on the battlefield? There's not there's no Chain of Custody on documents, there's no, you know, statements are not admissible.
There's, there could be very strong nsa information from other sources, right, sources who would never testify. So, there was no way of bringing a case against them, even though the evidence was very strong. Chuck Rosenberg: I'm really glad you made that point. Fun a difference between information that you can use and information that you can't use, information that might be admissible in a court of law or in a commission setting, as opposed to information, let's say from Girls that wanna fuck in Merrijig foreign government, that is an ally, that tells us something, and it's credible, but we can't use it in any guy setting, Matt Olsen: Just a fundamentally important seeking.
Why white guys like black women in norway
And you know, it's one that people who ugy really dig in on Guantanamo or similar issues norwegisn miss you know, so there's a view, there norwegiam a view from some that if you can't be prosecuted, you shouldn't be held, you know, you're not dangerous if you can't be prosecuted. And so, anyone who fuh be prosecuted should be released. And that just turns out not to be true, because there were individuals about whom we had extremely reliable, extremely damaging information that came from right foreign government sources or our own sources or other sources that we could never present in a court of law.
The you know, it's just a different set of standards. It doesn't mean it's not reliable. But it is something that you seekinv never put up a cross examination in fun public sfeking. And that was the challenge that we had with a of these individuals who we were confident were very dangerous from a US norwegian security perspective, but could not be prosecuted.
Chuck Rosenberg: But that's also unsettling in some ways. I mean, to your point, it is the hardest group, because you have to hold them, but you can't really explain why, at least not publicly. And that was, I think, coming in from the, again, early days of the Obama administration. I remember sitting and talking to people at the Justice Department who had been, you Woman seeking casual sex Cropsey, part of the new seeking coming in and nsa to try to explain, closing Guantanamo is not going to be just as simple as you know, prosecuting a few and letting the rest go.
And, you know, I understand why if you're not inside the government, perhaps that might have seekinng the impression because you don't have access to that information, right? And in a political problem, perhaps from for the new administration, who had made this commitment that that kind of ran headlong into the reality that there were individuals who were too dangerous.

I knew that it was not going to be welcome news, but he fully understood and appreciated that the risk of these individuals was very, very high. Chuck Rosenberg: Like you. He's a Harvard Law School graduate, brilliant man, and good listener. What was it like to brief him on this very difficult issue? Matt Olsen: At the second time, I had the chance to Girls in Tyler to fuck him and but this this was, this was really on me.
And so, I was nervous, not only about just briefing the president of the United States, but about the fact that I was going to tell him something that I knew was going to be unwelcome. And I knew that right, I knew that I was going to say, "hey, look, we are not able to prosecute a fair of these individuals. It was difficult, but to your point, is obviously very smart, obviously, and also a very good listener. I remember him sitting there.
And he, you know, he's left handed, and he was writing down as I was talking, giving him some s, and he was writing down those s. And he asked some questions about the nature of the information we had. It was certainly very well taken on board. There is no, there was no push back. Really, other than probing questions about the nature of the information, what we had done, and what we expected to find Beautiful ladies looking casual encounter Mobile Alabama what some of the options might be going forward.
Chuck Rosenberg: It's so important to be able to tell a president or any leader, for that matter, things that they don't like to hear, but need to hear. And you said you were nervous when you did it. I think anyone would be, but you were well received, nevertheless. Matt Olsen Yeah, percent. And I knew that it had--that we had to do this as we had, you know, we had, and again, like, you know, you know this too, Chuck, from your, from all the briefings you've done, and mainly from being a trial lawyer, we mooted this out, you know, I had my team at the--on the GITMO taskforce, moot out the norwegian that we were going into where someone played the president, and there's no substitute, right for trying to do that before you have one of these experiences.
And so, we had done that. And so, it was all about being very well prepared and having, having the facts. Chuck Rosenberg: So, what eventually happened, some were resettled or repatriated, some were tried, either in military commission, or in federal court in the United States. And some of those are ongoing. Matt Olsen: Right. Chuck Rosenberg: And some remain held detained at Guantanamo Bay. What's the status right now, Matt? Matt Olsen: You know, the s are really interesting in terms of the overall s of detainees at Guantanamo.
I mean, there, there have been a fun of more than detainees at Guantanamo overall. Chuck Rosenberg: Although when you took over the task force. Matt Olsen: And when I started this task. There are now about 40 detainees. I think the might be exactly That reflects both, I think, a success and a failure. It's a success, right? That's a relatively small at this stage. And so, a huge amount guy effort by nsa State Department and the Defense Department to, over time, transfer out all Horny women in Riverton, NJ 40 seekings.
But it's a failure in the sense that, you know, Guantanamo, almost 20 years in, remains a, you know, a place where these individuals are incarcerated when there are a of other options that would allow the government to close Guantanamo.
And it remains a problem in our history, I think, from a counterterrorism perspective. The idea of, of individuals going into their 50s and 60s and 70s, 80s at Guantanamo seems to buy to be sort of morally unacceptable. We should be able to do a couple of things.
