The latest case-by-case information from the Justice Department show that in the final months of the Bush Administration new prosecutions for internal security and terrorism matters were far lower than they had been at any time since 9/11/01.
The data were collected from federal prosecutors by the Executive Office for United States Attorneys and obtained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse under the Freedom of Information Act.
For details, see the TRAC Report at:
In addition to the most recent figures on terrorism prosecutions, TRAC continues to provide free reports on current enforcement trends. Go to

The November 2008 criminal data are also available to TRACFED subscribers via the Express, Going Deeper and Analyzer tools. Go to http://tracfed.syr.edu for more information. Customized reports for a specific agency, district, program, lead charge or judge are available via the TRAC Data Interpreter, either as part of a TRACFED subscription or on a per-report basis.
