Terrorists launch an attack against the USA. Their first strike is by a suicide squad that detonates a truckload of explosives at an army base in Washington DC. FBI probes indicate that the attack is by Arab terrorists led by Iranians. Subsequent attacks are via airplanes exploded in mid-air, crowded restaurants, and an attack on a mall. Administration cabinet heads push the President (Hal Holbrook) to retaliate. The director of the FBI (Peter Strauss) believes that there may be more to the story than the investigation has revealed and the Secretary of Defense (Paul Winfield) is the only other person urging caution.

This is not a GREAT film, but in the aftermath of 911 and the War on Terror, now that we know the consequences of following the hawks and their lies regarding threats from Weapons of Mass Destruction, this film demonstrates what could have happened by getting all the proper evidence first. From reading some other comments, I understand that it has not been shown on American TV for some time (I saw it on Malaysian TV). Perhaps it has been banned as subversive by the White House.
It is a typical "TV movie" with a few of the "usual TV movie suspects", but has a valid point, which is put over quite well. In addition, the terrorists are not overly "foaming at the mouth" fanatics, for which we should be grateful, compared to, say, the terrorists in "True Lies".
