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.

The use of the Arkansas State Capitol as a stand-in for the United States Capitol is blatant and would never deceive even the most untrained eye. The Arkansas Capitol is much smaller than the US Capitol and does not have a Statue of Freedom on its dome. See more »
Okay, I haven't seen this in years, but I distinctly remember it, in detail, from when it originally aired on TV.
The premise of terrorists wandering about bombing and rocketing things is perfectly scary, sure. And I guess if you are so inclined, you'd find it prescient of 9/11. In reality, it seemed to be an extreme version of what had happened in the past decade in Europe.
Anyway, I recall it being sorta not that good. I watched for the premise, explosions, and waiting for some law enforcement or military unit to do something useful about it. Instead soldiers hoot and holler about a girl and get blown up for their effort, and so on.
Typical TV-movie fare, really.
