War on America opens with the dramatic 1993 World Trade Center bombing and tracks terrorist activities aimed at U.S. targets throughout the 1990s leading up to the horrific morning of September 11, 2001. With each successful attack, al Qaeda becomes more emboldened. With each failure of the U.S. government to respond or stop their activities, the organization and the legend of Osama bin Laden grow.
