Fort Dix and FBI entrapment – a suspect victory in the War on Terror

In 2007, three brothers, Dritan, Shain and Eljvir Duka, were arrested in their hometown of Cherry Hill, New Jersey for conspiring to kill US military personnel at nearby Fort Dix. They were alleged to be members of a terrorist cell that became known as the ‘Fort Dix Five’. Quickly deemed guilty in the court of public opinion, their verdict was made official in 2008 when they were each sentenced to life in prison. But were the Dukas’ arrests and convictions a major victory in the War on Terror, as the media, politicians and law enforcement claimed, or the unjust result of that same war gone very awry on US soil?
