Special Book and Author Event with Stuart Newberger: The Forgotten Flight, Terrorism, Diplomacy and the Pursuit of Justice
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 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. Both attacks were carried out at the instruction of Libya’s dictator, Muammer Qaddafi, but while ‘Lockerbie’ became synonymous with international terrorism, UTA 772 became "the forgotten flight." 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. This event is in conjunction with the Jewish Book Council.
Stuart H. Newberger is a Washington-based lawyer whose practice centers on handling complex international disputes. He represented the families of seven Americans killed in the UTA 772 attack. The Forgotten Flight is his first book.
