Mukasey Soundbite 1: Terrorist Jailed In NY Increases "Mischief In The Form Of Murder."

"The question is not whether they are going to escape.

"The plan seems to be to abandon the view that we are in a war and to apply procedures appropriate to a war, which is the view that was adopted after September 11th, and to return instead to a September 10, 2001 criminal justice model of the sort of that prevailed in the 90s."
