Ex-U.S. Attorney Offers Insights on Mukasey

Mary Jo White, former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, has prosecuted terrorism cases before Mukasey, including the case against Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, who was convicted for his role in the 1993 plot to attack New York landmarks, including the World Trade Center. She speaks with Madeleine Brand about her impressions of the judge, who she says has a "ramrod" sense of fairness.
