So not only are Pentagon official pissed that these Guantanemo detainees have high priced lawyers defending them (after being pissed they had to bother with a trial in the first place), they are overtly contacting the commercial firms that these lawyers have accounts with (represent) so pressure them to move their accounts elsewhere to pressure these lawyers to quit their clients.

What does the Pentagon have to hide? Clearly they do not want a "fair" trial in their military courts.
