Description
 
Relates the full story of America’s decades-long attempt to fight terrorism. On Sept. 11, 2001, a long history of failures & missteps came to a head, with tragic results. At the end of World War II, the government had established a seamless system for countering the threats of Nazi terrorists. But those capabilities were soon forgotten, & it wasn’t until 1968, when Palestinian groups began a series of airplane hijackings, that the U.S. had to take counter-terrorism seriously again. Narrates the game of catch-up that various administrations & the CIA played from the hostage-taking at the Munich Olympics, to the terrorist incidents in the mid-1980s, through the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993.
