Interview with Stuart Newberger.  Renowned international terrorism litigation attorney Stuart Newberger has helped hundreds of American victims of state-sponsored terrorism, and their families, find justice, through his work with international law firm Crowell & Moring in Washington, D.C.  In his book, “The Forgotten Flight: Terrorism, Diplomacy and the Pursuit of Justice,” Newberger asks how we can bring leaders of sovereign nations to account for their crimes.  As a lawyer, Newberger represented the families of the seven Americans killed in the UTA 772 attack, a French airliner blown up by a suitcase bomb in 1989 while flying from Central Africa to Paris, killing all 170 people on board.  Now he tells the story of the flight for the first time, piecing together the events leading up to the crime in extraordinary detail. He reveals how French investigators cracked the case and takes us inside the behind-the-scenes diplomatic talks with the Libyan government.
