Alleged Iranian 'Front' Represented by Mukasey Law Firm

I know politics makes strange bedfellows, but this is ridiculous. The man that would be the new attorney general works for a law firm that represents the country that Mukasey's boss intends on bombing. That make sense? It's kind of ironic, I think. It also shows how dirty government in Washington is:
For more than 25 years, U.S. intelligence and law enforcement authorities say they have suspected the New York-based Alavi Foundation is a "front" for Iranian espionage and anti-American activities.

For more than 25 years, court records show the foundation has been publicly defended and represented by the New York law firm where attorney-general nominee Michael Mukasey is a partner: Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP.

The foundation says the firm continues to represent it.

Mukasey personally handled at least one matter in court for the foundation.
