Summary A two-part feature documentary to mark the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. Begins with a retrospective look at the first attack on the World Trade Centre in 1993. Examines the long secret war between al-Qaeda and the U.S. intelligence, the CIA and FBI, ultimately leading to the attacks on 9/11. The decade-long trial of intrigue and espionage, was traced from Pakistan and Afghanistan, through the Philippines to New York and Washington; and included the CIA plot to assassinate Osama bin Laden. Looks at the key intelligence failures which allowed the 9/11 plot to happen. Includes selected archival footage, and interviews with Richard Clarke (the White House Chief of Counter-terrorism), Michael Scheuer (Head of the CIA Bin Laden Unit), and Gary Schroen, CIA field agent, who spent the 1990s trying to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden.
The film presents an inside account of what was going on behind the scenes on 9/11. Reveals that the confusion in air traffic control, the failure to promptly notify the military about the hijacked planes, and the breakdown in communications around the President allowed these attacks to be successfully carried out. Features also interviews with pilots, air traffic controllers, White House officials and the chairmen of the 9/11 Commission, Thomas Kean and Richard Hamilton.
