Argument: New York has been through terrorist trials before

Issue Report: Trying 9/11 terror suspects in NYC courts


Joe Slakes. “We Shouldn’t Fear Terror Trials In NYC.” Fox News. November 20th, 2009: “It is also an unfortunate truth that we have been through terrorist trials before in New York City. The prosecutors as well as the federal and city law enforcement officials are experienced and are prepared. There is probably no other location in the United States better prepared for this trial than New York. […] Some argue that the trial puts New York at the center of the terrorist target. I would argue that we have always been there and we will not let fear rule the day.”
