2006 NR

Made over a span of five years after the Sept. 11 attacks, this collection of reports from the "Frontline" series investigates the inner workings of al-Qaida and the group's link to America's war on terror. The compilation examines the rise of Osama Bin Laden, U.S. intelligence failures, the history of Muslim fundamentalism, the story of ill-fated FBI agent John O'Neill, the arrest of a sleeper cell, al-Qaida's activities in Europe and more.
