Contents Summary
Produced for PBS by journalist Steve Emerson (Executive Director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism) in the aftermath of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, the film investigates the spread of terrorism in America. Emerson, who tracked down the Jihad with the help of former CIA and FBI experts and filmed private conferences and secure Mosques using hidden cameras, brings the work and goals of these extremists to life. Through interviews with terrorists themselves, the film exposes clandestine operations of militant Islamic terrorist groups on American soil.

Revell (Former FBI Official), Tamil Al-Adnani (Palestinian Sheikh), Fayiz Azzam (cousin of Abdullah Azzam), Alvin Schlesinger (Judge in the El Sayyid Nosair Trial), Joseph Borrelli (NYPD), Michael G.
