Karen Greenberg was quoted in Watertown Daily Times about the prosecution of foreign terrorists in U.S. courts.
Under President Barack Obama, the Justice Department prosecuted alleged foreign fighters in U.S. courts, winning convictions in nearly every case. Prosecutors even used terrorism laws for action on the battlefield: In March, Ibrahim Suleiman Adnan Adam Harun was convicted in Brooklyn for his role in an ambush that killed two U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
“We know how to do this,” said Karen J. Greenberg, director of the Center on National Security at the Fordham University School of Law. “Either you trust your court system and your prison system, or you don’t.”
