Great News! Air America Host May Defend Somali Pirate

Who better to represent a Somali pirate than an enemy of America like Ron Kuby?
Ron Kuby, a New York-based civil rights lawyer, said he has been in discussions about forming a legal team to represent the Somali.

"I think there's a grave question as to whether America was in violation of principles of truce in warfare on the high seas," said Kuby. "This man seemed to come on to the Bainbridge under a flag of truce to negotiate. He was then captured. There is a question whether he is lawfully in American custody and serious questions as to whether he can be prosecuted because of his age."
Kuby gleefully discusses it on his Air America show.
