DOJ Releases Their Terrorist Conviction Stats

Via The Hill:
The Justice Department has responded to GOP demands for details about terrorism cases brought in civilian court and the number of convicted terrorists held in U.S. prisons. Assistant U.S. Attorney General Ronald Weich on Friday gave the top Democrat and Republican on the Judiciary and Intelligence committees copies of an updated National Security Division report and chart containing statistics about convictions that have occurred since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The release of the information is the latest volley in the ongoing dispute over closing Guantanamo Bay and the Obama administration’s plans to try some terrorism suspects in civilian courts instead of military commissions.
