FBI Special Agent Francis J. Pellegrino joins former federal prosecutor Michael J. Garcia on February 25 in a compelling discussion, reviewing the hunt for the 1993 World Trade Center bombers.

In honor of the 22nd anniversary of the February 26, 1993 WTC bombing, Pellegrino and Garcia, along with the Museum’s Director of Research Liz Mazucci, will examine the investigation and prosecution of the terrorists.

Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, will introduce the discussion and explain his views on ways that terror prosecutions have evolved since 1993.

The talk will take place in the Museum auditorium at 6:30 p.m. Admission to the talk is free for Museum visitors, but advance registration is required.
