Summary

  • "It came, literally, out of the blue. The 9-11 attacks on America left its citizens in a state of shock. Nobody saw it coming, nobody knew why. President George Bush responded by declaring "war on terror". This two-part documentary looks at the role propaganda played leading up to 9-11 and the subsequent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is a story of hearts and minds won and lost on a battlefield that has no boundaries. In a digital age, when terrorists are recruited online and hate propaganda flourishes how do we know where the truth lies?"--Container.
