Every morning, Attorney General Michael Mukasey is handed a classified brief describing the latest terrorist threats to the United States. Mukasey, in his remarks to judges and lawyers assembled in Farmington, Pa. for the D.C. Circuit’s semi-annual Judicial Conference, said he thought he knew something about terrorism before taking over as the 81st attorney general. As a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, he presided over the case of “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman, which stemmed from the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and signed the arrest warrant for Jose Padilla, who was convicted last year of aiding terrorists.
