NY Times opposes Haynes nomination to Fourth Circuit

Here in today's New York Times (registration required) is an editorial opposing the confirmation of William J. Haynes II to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, primarily on the basis of objections to the legal positions taken by the government on war-related issues while Haynes was head lawyer for the Defense Department, along with what is said to be his lack of experience. (Of course, nobody who is chief counsel for anything gets to try very many cases.)
