August has whizzed by, and with September upon us, so are the television specials on one of the most horrible and shocking events in modern history, September 11.
For U.S viewers, the shows titled “Inside 9/11,” The Final Report: Osama’s Escape” and “Triple Cross: Bin Laden’s Spy in America,” will be airing next week from Sunday and again on the 11th.
In “Inside 9/11,” they’ve added the Zacarias Moussaoui trial, the secret Able Danger Osama hunters, etc. “Final Report” charts the generally stumbling pursuit of bin Laden. There’s a misnomer here because there’s no final report. Don’t get your hopes up.
The stunning episode is “Triple Cross,” which the network likens to a Tom Clancy plot. Of course we tend to think of how big intrigues will play on a big screen — and this one is continually fascinating, start to finish.
Ali Mohammed has had his fingers in many if not most of the terrorism gambits all over the world on behalf of radical Islam. He has worked tightly with bin Laden himself — and at the same time he has consulted with the FBI, CIA, the Army, etc.
Not to spoil the ending for you — but after 14 years as a mole for everybody (so it seems), he now is hidden away in America’s federal prisons.
