When Lawyers Evolve

"Where you stand depends on where you sit," the old political saying goes.  Carrie Severino has this post at Bench Memos, with the above title, on lawyers who were once harshly critical of the Bush Administration's assertions of legality on the treatment of our enemies but are now writing internal Administration memos supporting the legality of even more drastic action.  She notes that Glenn Greenwald at Slate is notably less enthusiastic about David Barron and Marty Lederman than he used to be, to put it mildly.
