The Secret War On Terror reveals the astonishing inside story of the intelligence war which has been fought against Al Qaeda over the last decade, since 9/11. With unparalleled access to Western intelligence and law-enforcement agencies and with a host of exclusive interviews with those who have been at the sharp end of fighting the terrorists - from the CIA and the FBI to MI5 - Peter Taylor asks whether the West is winning and whether we are any safer from attack. The series includes the first television interview with the former Director General of MI5, Baroness Manningham-Buller, and an extensive interview with the recent Director of the CIA, General Michael Hayden. He examines the increasingly extreme interrogation techniques that were devised in a desperate need to prevent a second wave of attacks, hears claims of torture, and finds out how terrorist plots have been disrupted using information gleaned from suspects.
