In a video released by Keep America Safe, a conservative organization run by the former vice president's daughter, a narrator accuses Attorney General Eric Holder of hiring "nine lawyers who represented or advocated for terrorist detainees."

Some conservative legal scholars have called the video a "shameful" attack on government attorneys that violates constitutional principles. Our question for you today: What do you think of Liz Cheney and others who criticize lawyers who defend terrorists?
