Program Description

AN UPDATED VERSION OF TERRORIST AND THE SUPERPOWER, WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION FROM BILL MOYERS, PRESENTED September 13, 2001.

On Friday, August 7, 1998, two car bombs exploded simultaneously at United States embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, killing 268 people and injuring more than 5,000. In the days and weeks that followed, investigators from the CIA and the FBI rapidly closed in on a series of suspects. The accused mastermind of the bombings was named almost immediately - Osama bin Laden, an exiled Saudi millionaire. But was this the work of an individual terrorist or the symptom of more deeply rooted vendettas against the United States? FRONTLINE, in collaboration with the New York Times, investigates bin Laden, his followers, and the Africa bombings.
