Storyline

The incredible story of the events leading up to the bombing of the World Trade Center in New York and the capture of the terrorists. The amazing thing is that the FBI had an informant among the terrorists, but refused to pay him $500/wk for more information. They eventually had to pay $1 million and place him in the witness protection program. A story of incompetence on all sides. Written by Bob Farnsworth

Disturbing
17 August 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film is an excellent dramatization of the blunders of the FBI and the resolve of Islamic Terrorists. It puts a much needed face on terrorism right on American soil.

My father suggested that I view the film as he has had it in his possession for SEVEN years. I had previously heard of the film. Being an instructor of American History I was shocked that not only did the FBI miss the clues THEN, but that they failed to do so prior to 9-11. How could any agency not view this film and learn from it.

I recommend that ALL Americans watch this film in order to comprehend the resolve of our enemies. Also, the last scene is hauntingly accurate and worth the price of admission.
