[edit] Information

On September 11, 2001, the United States suffered the deadliest terrorist attack in its history. To most people, the attack was a sudden and extraordinary act of aggression. But a group of law enforcement agents, analysts, and other government officials knew better; the roots of the attack were sown decades earlier. HISTORY presents a major historical investigation of the events that led to that day in the limited documentary series, ROAD TO 9/11. "Road to 9/11" provides a 360 degree overview of the events that led to the September 11th terrorist attack on the United States. The comprehensive, dramatic narrative weaves together the complex global connections and webs that were developing over two decades. The worst terrorist attack in American history is also the least understood. It was not the action of one man - Osama bin Laden. It was the creation of a network, spanning decades. It began as a New York story, as homegrown as baseball. And while the first blood was shed in the early 1990s, the roots of the violence stretch back decades and even centuries, making the final horrendous act almost inevitable. This series will redefine our understanding of what happened, focusing primarily on the period between the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the moment of impact on 9/11 itself. Using a tick-tock of tense cat-and-mouse narratives of terrorists and counter-terrorists, friends and foes, we follow the calamitous intersection of war and faith, natural resources and scientific progress, plane and tower. How did this happen? When did this hate begin, and why? Featuring more than 50 interviews, the story is told by the people who were there, some speaking on US television for the first time - the investigators and officials who understood and warned of the threat, but were unable to imagine the magnitude or foil the deadly plot conceived by Osama bin Laden and Khalid Sheik Mohammed. Steve Coll, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his book, "Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001" and "The Bin Ladens: An Arabian Family in the American Century", is the Series Adviser. F. Murray Abraham narrates the series. Produced by Left/Right, LLC for History/A&E Television Networks

[edit] Brooklyn Jihad (1990-1995)

Part one begins in New York in November 1990 when an extremist rabbi is gunned down in a midtown Manhattan hotel. During the course of the investigation and the mystery of El Sayyid Nossair, agents discover a Brooklyn-based terrorist cell with connections to Osama bin Laden. In 1993 a group of cell members, including Ramzi Yousef, successfully set off a bomb in the World Trade Center killing six and wounding dozens. Investigators learn that financing for the attack came from Yousef's uncle; his name is Khalid Sheik Mohammad, the future mastermind of the 9/11 plot.

[edit] The Bin Ladens (1995-2000)

Part two moves from New York to Washington, DC where the CIA and Clinton Administration officials are trying to understand and react to the rise in jihadi terror. A number of classified operations are planned during this time targeting Osama bin Laden resulting in near misses or shots not taken. An intimate profile of bin Laden emerges through rare interview footage with him and commentary from people who knew him personally including former fighters, friends and journalists.

[edit] The Days of Terror (2000-2003)

The final episode explores how the September 11th attack came to be. For the first time, using first-person accounts, a full examination of the true mastermind of the attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Part three also examines the lives and actions of the men recruited to carry out the attacks, including their backgrounds and training. In Washington, there is a disconnect among government agencies - information withheld, missed signals, and ensuing conflicts. The film also details the tragic day of 9/11, and how the United States and the world were changed forever.
