The 50-Lawyer Poll

Defense attorneys who have tried terrorism cases score the legal system's response to 9/11

If you want to know how well the justice system is combating terrorism, you’ve got to talk to the lawyers involved.

So we asked 50 defense attorneys who’ve worked on federal terrorism cases since 9/11 their opinions of the legal war on terror. (We also asked 50 prosecutors, but U.S. Department of Justice spokesman Dean Boyd told assistant U.S. attorneys across the country not to participate. He declined to tell us his reason.)

After you’ve seen how the defense lawyers answered, you can answer the questions yourself in our interactive poll.
