Former U.S. attorneys will discuss counter-terrorism

(March 23, 2011) Two former U.S. attorneys, Capt. David C. Iglesias, JAGC, USN, and Professor from Practice John McKay, will discuss counter-terrorism efforts at a panel from noon - 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 29.

The two, who were among the eight U.S. attorneys who were controversially fired in 2006, will discuss military commission trials, Guantanamo Bay and the role of Department of Defense lawyers in counter-terrorism efforts.

Iglesias was reactivated to the U.S. Naval Reserve Judge Advocate General's Corps in 2009 as part of a special prosecution team for Guantanamo detainees after serving as U.S. attorney in New Mexico for six years.

McKay teaches Constitutional Law of Terrorism and National Security Law, as well as courses on ethics and leadership, at Seattle University School of Law. During his tenure as U.S. Attorney for the state of Washington, he successfully prosecuted terrorist Ahmed Ressam.
