PROSECUTING TERRORISM

Federal trials protect human rights—and the United States.

Military commissions at Gitmo, now in their third incarnation, are a failed experiment.

Federal trials, by contrast, have produced more than 400 convictions of terrorists since 9-11, denied Al Qaeda members the warriors’ martyrdom they seek, and set a standard of justice before the world.
