Obama appointee David Barron's writing for Slate.

Barack Obama has tapped Harvard law professor David Barron as principal deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Counsel, an obscure office sometimes called "the president's law firm." Barron has been a longtime critic of the Bush administration's policies on domestic wiretapping and presidential powers—views he has shared in the Harvard Law Review and on Slate's "Convictions" blog. Below is a selection of Barron's writing for Slate, including pieces on FISA, Guantanamo, and the vice president's bizarre "dual role."
