 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.
