FRONTLINE | Sneak Peek: Inside "Top Secret America" | PBS

Duration: 07:26
Program: Frontline #2918

FRONTLINE goes inside The Washington Post's major two-year examination into the massive, unwieldy, top secret world the US government has created in response to 9/11.

A major examination by Washington Post reporters Dana Priest and William Arkin is the subject of an upcoming FRONTLINE documentary produced by veteran producer Michael Kirk. The Post's two-year investigation looks at the top secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001—a world that has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that few know how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or how many agencies duplicate work being done elsewhere.
