- Program Description
Following the September 11 terrorist attack, the nation's top leaders gathered to decide the U.S. response. Some of the same individuals were in Washington, DC, 22 years ago when the United States suffered its first humiliation at the hands of Islamic militants who took U.S. embassy employees hostage and held them captive before the world. Over the decades, incident followed incident -- the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, the killing of American soldiers in a Berlin nightclub, the downing of Pan Am 103, and the first attack on the World Trade Center. In "Target America," FRONTLINE uncovers a long-standing division within the nations security apparatus about how to deal with an enemy that has been targeting America and Americans for decades.
