It also provides a global profile of terrorism and the people behind it.

Hosted by veteran US network news anchor Forrest Sawyer the programmes tries to analyse why the attacks were perpetrated, what motivates these terrorist organizations, what they hope to accomplish, how they can be stopped, and how this event has changed the world.
