Summary
Examines the history of terrorist attacks against the United States by Islamic fundamentalists, beginning with the American Embassy workers taken hostage in Iran during Jimmy Carter's presidency. Looks at other incidents--the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, the killing of American soldiers in a Berlin nightclub, the downing of Pan Am 103, and the first attack on the World Trade Center. Discusses the American government's attempts to deal with these attacks, particularly focusing on the Reagan administration.
