  • 7:00 am
    Frontline [#2918H] Top Secret America - 9/11 to the Boston Bombings In the years after September 11, Frontline produced more than 45 hours of award-winning films documenting the 9/11 attacks and America's response to them. Now, on the tenth anniversary of September 11, the Frontline team that produced "Bush's War," "The Torture Question" and "Cheney's Law" teams up with Pultizer Prize-winning journalist Dana Priest to investigate the dramatic changes that have reshaped America in the last decade. Over one hour, the film examines the history of the dark side of America's "war on terror." From the creation of black site prisons abroad and super-secret facilities here in America, to targeted killings and covert wars waged by special forces, to a multibillion-dollar terrorism industrial complex, Frontline and Dana Priest ask how a decade of fighting terrorism has reshaped the country and whether it has made us any safer. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
