Are We Safer?

Are We Safer?
Jan. 18, 2011
21 minutes

FRONTLINE launches its new monthly magazine program with three reports, led by Are We Safer? In this first story, Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Dana Priest investigates the terrorism-industrial complex that grew up in the wake of 9/11. Against a backdrop of recent mail bomb threats from Al Qaeda in Yemen and growing concerns about homegrown terrorists, Priest explores the growing reach of homeland security, fusion centers, battlefield technologies, and data collecting into the lives of ordinary Americans.

Producer(s): Michael Kirk
