In today’s page 11 The New York Times review of the book “United States of Jihad,” by Peter Bergen, two of the four images featured are by renowned Illustrated Courtroom artist Elizabeth Williams. The book, reviewed by Janet Napolitano, looks at various events from the Sandy Hook mass murder to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, to seek to understand why some Americans become jihadists. Williams sketches of jihadists Najibullah Zazi, who joined an Al Qaeda plot to blow up the new York subway system in 2009 and Faisal Shahzad, who parked a bomb loaded SUV in Times Square in 2010, are featured prominently, as two of the four pictures shown, on the top of page 11.
