Summary
Three segments originally broadcast on the PBS program Frontline. In 'Are we safer?' "Washington Post reporter Dana Priest investigates the terrorism-industrial complex that grew up in the wake of 9/11. Against a backdrop of recent mail bomb threats from Al Qaeda in Yemen and growing concerns about homegrown terrorists, Priest explores the growing reach of homeland security, fusion centers, battlefield technologies, and data-collecting into the lives of ordinary Americans." [Container] In 'Flying cheaper,' Miles O'Brien investigates a growing trend -- the outsourcing of major airline repair work to independent maintenance operations and a pattern of questionable maintenance practices." [Container] Finally, in 'The spy who quit,' Martin Smith travels to the home of former Afghan intelligence chief Amrullah Saleh to ask him about his defection from the Karzai administration
