 WASHINGTON -- President Obama yesterday bypassed the Senate confirmation process with six recess appointments, including Washington attorney James Cole for the No. 2 Justice Department post, which Republicans had blocked since May over his ties to AIG before its near collapse.



Rep. Peter King (R-LI), incoming chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, also objected to the Cole appointment because he said it continued the administration's "dangerous policies of treating Islamic terrorism as a criminal matter."



"I find it absolutely shocking that President Obama would appoint someone who has diminished the 9/11 terrorist attacks by comparing them to the drug trade and who believes that a civilian courtroom is the appropriate venue for 9/11 trials," King said.



"This may be one of the worst appointments by President Obama."



Cole, a close friend of Attorney General Eric Holder, is a partner at a private Washington law firm.

one is minding the store. This man has got to go.........................................theodore miraldi
