Why Isn't This Conflict of Interest and Improper?

Dan Foster at The Corner points to Byron York's story in The Washington Examiner regarding the question posed to Holder by Senator Grassley last November about Justice Department attorneys representing Gitmo detainees. Turns out there are a few:

At least nine Obama appointees at the Justice Department have represented or written amicus briefs in support of terrorist detainees, according to Attorney General Eric Holder. At least two of the lawyers continue to work on detainee policy.

Now, could some legal mind (Professor Jacobson, are you there?) explain to me why this isn't conflict of interest?
