"The war on terror requires greater cooperation among countries and a deeper understanding of terrorism's causes and manifestations. This program spotlights five nations caught in the crosshairs to examine regional history, terror-related issues, and counterterrorism actions: the U.S., post-9/11, where captured international terrorists have been handled by military rather than civilian courts; the U.K., where fighting the IRA has ultimately conferred little advantage to the country in its battle against the Islamic extremists in its midst; Germany and Japan, whose counterterrorism efforts are constitutionally constrained by their history as aggressors in World War II; and Colombia, a land of narcoterrorism where extradition to America has been the government's key anti-terror weapon. Some content may be objectionable. A Films for the Humanities & Sciences Production. A part of the series Global Issues. (29 minutes)."
