War on Terror? Sounds like there really isn’t one, judging from the ludicrously low numbers of terrorism cases developed by the FBI that are not pursued for prosecution by the Justice Department.
The Justice Department rejected 87% of international terrorism cases referred to it by the FBI during the first nine months of Fiscal Year 2006, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
TRAC found that the number of terrorism case rejections by DOJ decreased almost ever year since 9/11. In Fiscal Year 2002, there were 118 defendants prosecuted in international terrorism cases, but with most of Fiscal 2006 over, there have been only 19 such defendants prosecuted. It is abysmal:
Referred for Prosecution-Not Prosecuted-Prosecution Filed-Convicted
All Other Terror——–1,294—–525————564—————322
So much for saying terrorism is a national security problem, not a crime problem–and worrying about the way terrorists use courts assert technicalities and Constitutional rights they shouldn’t have. It seems very few of them ever see a court, or any other type of justice.
After the 9/11 attacks, both the FBI and the Department of Justice announced that they would focus their mission on investigating and prosecuting terrorism cases. But what use is that, if the Justice Department refuses to pursue solid FBI investigations to their logical conclusion?
One other thing: The data shows that in the Eastern District of Michigan, the HEART of Islamic America (and terrorist America), U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III a/k/a “Abu Porno” has an abysmal record of pursuing and convicting terrorism (the worst of any U.S. District handling terror cases). He and his office are a JOKE!:
