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 often-underrated movie (the fact that Steven Segal starred in a more illustrious, but worse film of the same name does not help) was probably the first to address domestic terrorism and its resonance in the light of recent events make it a film that should be brought back and re-issued. Peter Strauss is excellent as the FBI Chief who thinks the terrorist acts are by an individual as opposed to a state, Hal Holbrook finds himself as the President considering his retaliatory response against chief suspects Iran. Top marks however go to Fritz Weaver, Mason Adams and EG Marshall the praetorian guard who form the inner circle of advisors who come into direct conflict with Strauss' more cautious approach. An above average TV movie whose storyline is somewhat similar to the more recent but more simply titled Siege starring Denzel Washington
