Prosecuting Terrorists: The Prosecutors’ Perspectives

Over the past fifteen years, zealous prosecutors have tried the Oklahoma City bombers, the World Trade Center bombers and those responsible for the destruction of US embassies in East Africa. What works? What doesn’t? Experienced prosecutors share their perspectives.
