former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri 'Hama Rules'
19 Feb 2005
NY TIMES :About two weeks ago, a friend of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri stopped by my office to update me on Lebanon and pass on a message from Mr. Hariri, whom I have known since reporting from Beirut in the late 1970's.

The Intolerable Conviction of Lynne Stewart
17 Feb 2005
<blockquote>
<p>"I see myself as being a symbol of what the people rail
against when they say our civil liberties are eroded. This case
could be, I hope it will be, a wakeup call to all of the citizens
of this country and all of the people who live here that you
can’t lock up the lawyers. You can’t tell the lawyers
how to do their job. You’ve got to let them operate. And I
will fight on. I am not giving up. I know I commited no crime. I
know what I did was right."</p>

<p class="quotesource">Attorney Lynne
Stewart, after her Feb. 10 conviction on felony charges</p>
</blockquote>

<p>In April 2002, then U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft personally
announced to the news media that the government had indicted radical
civil rights attorney Lynne Stewart on serious charges of
"conspiracy, providing material support to terrorists and
defrauding the U.S. government."</p>
