Amicus curiae: friend of the court? Which court?

Reader comment on item: Washington Protects the Terror Masters [in Courtrooms]

What in the world was the U.S. Department of Justice doing by involving themselves in "this case as amicus curiae in support of Bank Melli", which is IRAN'S largest bank?

Want a good laugh? Read the U.S. Department of Justice's "Mission Statement" -

"To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foriegn and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice FOR ALL AMERICANS.

Social work, ie., socialism saturates our U.S. Department of Justice. Long ago they abdicated any form of enforcing volitional responsibility and consequence onto criminality, with exception to occaisionally dragging it out of the mothballs when public opinion or outrage has forced them to.
