Adapting Paul Thompson's definitive Complete 9/11 Timeline (published by HarperCollins as "The Terror Timeline"), the filmmakers collaborate with documentary veterans Globalvision ("WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception", "Beyond JFK") to stitch together rare overlooked news clips, buried stories, and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception and spin. As a result, a very different picture of 9/11 emerges, one that raises new and more pressing questions.
What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of specific warnings before the attack? Was Osama Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda leadership allowed to escape U.S. forces in Afghanistan? And what has been the reason for the deliberate obscuring of evidence for state sponsorship? Perhaps the most important one of all: Why, five years later, are so many of the families? questions still unanswered?
