This paper examines three cases in which people suspected of terrorist activity were questioned by Australian police and security officers. They are located in the context of fundamental shifts in criminal justice processes and principles. Debates about interrogating terrorist suspects are dominated by concerns about torture. It is argued here that such concerns need to be supplemented by paying more attention to everyday questioning in the increasing mass of ‘ordinary’ terrorist cases.
