The Nation : End of Mafia Visualized

March 04, 1985

A federal law enforcement official said in New York that the Mafia could be destroyed within five years, but he and other crime experts warned that new leaders--and dangerous new gangs--could revitalize organized crime. Last month's indictment of five men alleged to make up a "commission" that controls the Mafia should be viewed as a beginning, rather than an end, of the fight against the mob, said U.S. Atty. Rudolph W. Giuliani. "There's an awful lot of work left--two, three, four, five more years of indictments like this," Giuliani said on the CBS program "Face the Nation."
