After the fall of the Taliban, a number of political experts and scholars discussed a scenario in which the Taliban and elements of Al Qaeda would set up command centers in nearby Pakistan. This episode of Frontline takes a very close look into that situation, and visitors can watch the program in its entirety here. The site also offers up a number of other features, including a detailed map of the region profiled in the film and interviews with former deputy secretary of state Richard Armitage and author Barnett Rubin. In "The Region's New Fighters", visitors can read transcripts of interviews with top Taliban lieutenants such as Haji Omar and Jalaluddin Haqqani. Visitors are also welcome to offer their own comments on the program in the "Join the Discussion" area of the site.
