Summary 9/11 10th anniversary programming In the decade since September 11, the American government has built a national security and intelligence system so large, so complex and so difficult to manage, that nobody really knows whether it is fulfilling its most important purpose: keeping its citizens safe. On the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, this documentary goes inside the Washington Post's two-year examination into the huge, unwieldy, top-secret world the government has created in response to that devastating day. Led by two-time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Dana Priest and William M. Arkin, a columnist, author and US Military expert, their team has been painstakingly investigating the underground system created by the government. They have been putting information together to map and reveal this 'top secret America' - including millions of people with security clearance, in hundreds of federal departments and agencies, operating out of 1,300 facilities around the country. This new branch of the government is a closed community, and has so far been protected from public scrutiny by extraordinary secrecy. The journalists' astonishing reports are now being published in a series of articles in the Washington Post. Top Secret America investigates the dramatic changes that have reshaped America and examines the history of the dark side of America's 'war on terror'. (From the US) (Documentary) CC.
