Terror Prosecution Scorecard:

The new issue of the ABA Journal presents a "scorecard" evaluating the Justice Department's terrorism-related prosecutions. By the Journal's count, the DoJ has 31 wins, six losses and one tie. That is a better record that I would have guessed -- even more so because the Journal counts a case as a "loss" if it resulted in a conviction, but not on the grounds that a defendant was involved with the Taliban or al Qaeda. Less favorable is the ABA Journal's tally of the results of over 10,000 federal investigations into terrorism related activities. Both charts are interesting, but I am skeptical as to whether either one is an accurate representation of progress or lack thereof.

Al Maviva:
I've come around to Ms. Zegart's way of thinking. That the Feds initiated 9962 terrorism investigations that didn't even go to trial just shows you how miserably we've lost the GWOT.

While most practice areas require one to pass the bar before practicing law, it's everybody is allowed to practice Fagin's Law without sanction...

9962 terrorism investigations that didn't go to trial. What does this mean? Are there any stats showing why they didn't go to trial?
