Frontline: Top Secret America by Info4uAndMe
Barack Obama once said that the Bush administration’s covert war on terror “should be reined in but this 2011 Frontline documentary reveals 9/11's unprecedented yet largely invisible legacy: the creation of a vast and complex maze of clandestine government and private agencies supposedly designed to hunt terrorists and prevent future attacks on the United States. What we do know is only the tip of a very large iceberg.
As new revelations come to light about the covert intelligence and military activities of the United States government the words of journalist Dana Priest are worth bearing in mind: “I think the reality is that they wanted to keep it secret because they were doing things that a lot of people would not approve of and they wanted to do them as long as they could without being found out.'
This documentary was first broadcast on PBS on September 6, 2011.
