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.

I thought Under Siege was a great movie. In fact, I would like to know if there are any plans for future airing. The actors did an excellent job of portraying their characters. The presence of terrorism in our own back yard brought home the reality of our state of unreadiness for such an attack.
I would love to see and possibly purchase this film for my library. In fact, I was an extra ( FBI agent) in this movie on location in Little Rock, Arkansas. I watched much of the filming of this movie and the work of the director who did remarkable work.
Peter Strauss and Stan Shaw are two of my favorite actors. I thought they were great in their roles.
