Top Secret America

Top Secret America
Sep. 06, 2011
60 minutes

In the years after September 11th, FRONTLINE produced more than 45 hours of award-winning films documenting the 9/11 attacks and America's response to them. Now on the 10th anniversary of September 11th, FRONTLINE Producer Michael Kirk -- Bush's War, The Torture Question, and Cheney's Law -- teams up with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Dana Priest, to investigate the dramatic changes that have reshaped America in the last decade. The program examines the history of the secret side of America's "war on terror." From the creation of black site prisons abroad and super-secret facilities here in America, to targeted killings and covert wars waged by special forces, and the creation of a multibillion-dollar terrorism-industrial complex, FRONTLINE and Dana Priest ask how a decade of fighting terrorism has reshaped the country and whether it has made us any safer.

Producer(s): Michael Kirk
