Summary
FRONTLINE launches its new monthly magazine program with three investigative reports. In the first story, Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Dana Priest investigates the terrorism-industrial complex that grew up in the wake of 9/11. In the second story, FRONTLINE correspondent Miles O'Brien investigates a growing trend: the outsourcing of major airline repair work to independent maintenance operations and a pattern of questionable maintenance practices. And in the third story, FRONTLINE correspondent Martin Smith travels to the home of Amrullah Saleh - Afghanistan's former intelligence chief - to ask him about his defection from the Karzai administration.
