Cast & Crew
Jean Louis Bruguiere
On December 14, 1999, Ahmed Ressam was arrested on the U.S.-Canadian border when an alert Customs agent became suspicious of Ressam's answers to her questions. When the trunk of his car was opened, agents discovered a powerful bomb and a plot for a Millennium attack on America. Ressam said nothing at his trial, but later decided to testify against an accomplice. His testimony revealed his motives, his methods and his connection to an Algerian terrorist group that has already carried out bombings in Europe. Ressam described his training at the Osama bin Laden camps in Afghanistan, where he learned, among other things, how to work with cyanide gas. With access to Ressam's testimony, policy files, officials in the U.S., Canada and France, correspondent Terence McKenna follows the trail of a terrorist.
