    Justice at War

    David Cole takes a critical look at John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales, John Yoo, and David Addington, the men who made the decisions that shaped America’s war on terror. Cole argues that America can prevail against the threat of terror not by dismantling the checks and balances that guarantee the fairness of our justice system, but by restoring them.
