For anyone who has followed, however peripherally, the disposition of those who have come to be called “detainees” of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Andrew McCarthy’s Willful Blindness is a mandatory read. McCarthy was the prosecuting U.S. attorney in the case of the “Blind Sheikh,” Omar Abdel Rahman, for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. The book chroni- cles McCarthy’s prosecutorial clean sweep in that case, in which ten defen- dants were convicted and the remaining two pleaded guilty.
