- Program Description
Oklahoma City, the UNABOMBER, the World Trade Center -- these tragedies have thrust bombing into the national spotlight. But such high profile events do not tell the whole story. They are a part of a disturbing trend. Every other hour, somewhere in this country a bomb explodes -- often causing death and serious injury. In the United States, the incidence of criminal bombing has quadrupled in just five years and bombing has become a major law enforcement problem. On the one year anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, this program explores how science can help in the fight against the "Bombing of America."
