In this special investigative program from the long-running Frontline series, the Washington Post's Dana Priest reports on "the sprawling post-9/11 terrorism-industrial complex." The program was designed to look into the expansion of various governmental agencies into the lives of ordinary Americans, and through hundreds of hours of detailed and delicate research, Priest and her colleagues have created a thoroughly engaging portrait of this current state of affairs. Visitors can watch the entire program, and then look through interactive features that include "Suspicious Activity-Really?" and "Reporting the Story". Also, visitors have access to related reports, including "Flying Cheaper" and "The Spy Who Quit". Visitors also have the ability to offer their own comments on this presentation as well.
