Abstract: The trial in France of Lebanese national Georges Abdallah, accused in the murder of an American diplomat, forces the US Justice Department to consider strategies aimed at ensuring conviction and a prison term while having to work through the complexities of a foreign legal system. Knowing that politics might dictate the accused terrorist's release, US officials seek a strategy that will serve their ends and not offend the French.
