I don't know if any names match up (and there are a lot of names to link around), but I found this knowledge quite interesting along with your excellent updates here:

--There is a crisis public relations (PR) program designed to demonize Guantanamo and rehabilitate the image of the detainees, funded by the Kuwaiti government.

--Many of the pro-bono lawyers have a middle eastern states or princes as clients.

--New York Times Supreme Court reporter, Linda Greenhouse's husband is one of the Gitmo lawyers, Eugene R. Fidell.

--The Center for Constitutional Rights, which represents several Gitmo detainees is also coordinating all legal representation for most of the detainees--more than 500 pro-bono lawyers. The CCR's funding statement reveals the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT) is a major donor. The IIIT was raided in 2002 by US Federal agents as part of a terror-funding investigation.
