Andrew C. McCarthy Takes A Look Back To The Real Beginning Of The War On Terror
Andrew C. McCarthy is a former federal prosecutor and a contributor to National Review Online. McCarthy takes us back to the real beginning of the war on terror—not the atrocities of September 11, but the first bombing of the World Trade Center on February 1993, when radical Islamists effectively declared war on the United States.

From his perch as a government prosecutor of the blind sheik and other jihadists responsible for the bombing, Andrew McCarthy will take us inside the twisted world of Islamic terror. He traces the evolution of his own thinking about how best to deal with terrorism, showing how the terrorists’ skill at using and abusing the U.S. legal system has led to a culture of “lawfare,” redefining war as a normal criminal issue susceptible to resolution in the courts. “Lawfare,” McCarthy notes, “has become the terrorists’ best friend” and has come close to paralyzing our efforts at defending our nation’s security.
