Documentary Explores U.S. Efforts to Thwart Terrorist Attacks


Aired 4/19/09

More than five years have passed since 3,000 Americans were killed in the terror attacks of Sept. 11. Since then, there have been no successful terrorist attacks in this country to speak of. What happened to the second wave of attacks that were expected? Was Sept. 11 simply a fluke? Have federal authorities really succeeded in stopping new terrorist plots?

Those are some of the questions posed in a Frontline documentary airing tonight at 10 p.m. on KPBS-TV. The Enemy Within was produced by Lowell Bergman, the celebrated journalist who worked for many years with 60 minutes . The Enemy Within takes a close look at some of the cases the FBI has identified as successful efforts to thwart terrorist plots.
