"Top Secret America" After the Boston BombingsAirs Tuesday, April 30 at 9:00 PM n the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Americans are asking why the country's intelligence agencies failed to prevent the devastating attack. Now, reports indicate that even though the CIA and FBI had been warned about one of the bombing suspects, they still managed to elude America's security net. Have the hundreds of billions of dollars spent since September 11th on counter terrorism efforts in America made us safer?
FRONTLINE will bring your audiences a definitive look at this timely, urgent question on Tuesday, April 30, in Top Secret America-9/11 to the Boston Bombings, an updated version of Top Secret America, in which Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Dana Priest traces the journey from 9/11 to the Marathon bombings, examines efforts to improve information sharing among federal agencies tasked with keeping us safe, and investigates the secret history of the twelve-year battle against terrorism.
This updated program will include a new prologue that incorporates April's terrorist bombings in Boston, and the body of the film will include reporting on three major domestic terrorist attacks since 9/11, including the Boston Marathon bombings.
"Top Secret America- 9/11 to the Boston Bombings" will replace the previously announced "Never Forget to Lie", which will now air on Tuesday, May 14, replacing the scheduled rebroadcast of "Cliffhanger".
