A Department of Defense lawyer apologized Wednesday for his comments suggesting that corporations boycott law firms that represent detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. In a letter to The Washington Post, Charles Cully Stimson said the comments, made during a radio interview, "do not reflect my core beliefs." His apology came two days after the Pentagon disavowed his statements, saying they did not represent Defense Department views. The remarks had touched off a salvo of criticism.
