The Criminal Justice System as a Counterterrorism Tool - Dept. of Justice Seal

The Obama administration is committed to using every instrument of national power to fight terrorism including intelligence and military operations as well as the criminal justice system. As a counter-terrorism tool, the criminal justice system has proven incredibly effective in both incapacitating terrorists and gathering valuable intelligence from and about terrorists. In every instance, the administration will use the tool that is most effective for fighting terrorism, and will make those decisions based on pragmatism, not ideology.
