Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This multifaceted Frontline special is a compelling recap of how the United States, and the world, responded to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Much of the focus is on the war in Afghanistan, with ongoing commentary from the likes of Secretary of State Colin Powell, British PM Tony Blair, and Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Otherwise, the special was divided into four segments: "On the Ground," "Assessing the Campaign," "With Us or Against Us," and "Fighting on Two Fronts." Campaign Against Terror was one of several PBS specials recognizing the first anniversary of 9/11.
