One of the nation’s leading international lawyers has written a first-person account describing his handling of one of the most notorious terrorist attacks in history — the September 19, 1989 bombing of UTA Flight 772 en route from North Africa to Paris, killing all 170 passengers and crew members. Destroyed by a suitcase bomb planted by Libyan agents, UTA 772 was overshadowed by the PanAm 103 Lockerbie attack 10 months earlier. On that basis it was known as “The Forgotten Flight.” The book describes how the French government cracked the case the diplomatic moves between Washington, London, Paris, Tripoli, and the United Nations in response and the author’s long journey to hold accountable the Libyan State and its dictator, Colonel Qaddaffi. The book touches on many of the issues confronting the United States Israel and the civilized world as they continue to deal with the scourge of international terrorism.
