With the help of archive footage, and interviews with government operatives like former CIA officer Milton Bearden and former FBI special agent Ali Soufan, authors like Ahmed Rashid, and Afghan leaders like former Mujahhideen leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar reveal the geopolitical events — beginning with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 — that laid the foundation for what transpired on 9/11. Also discussed are the military strategies employed after the event, the controversial attempts to gather U.S. intelligence, and the failures of the ongoing war in Afghanistan. Throughout it all, recordings, photographs, and witnesses and survivors offer first-hand accounts of what happened on that fateful day.
