This extensive 11-story investigation of terrorism in the U.S. deals a spectrum of issues ranging from suspected terrorists who were granted U.S. citizenship to links formed between Al Qaeda and Saudi Arabia. The first story in the series looks at how easy it is for suspected terrorists to gain U.S. citizenship due to "bureaucratic incompetence and turf wars." The next story looks at how some have slipped under the radar of the U.S. and United Nations' effort to freeze terrorists' funds. Another story investigates Gen. William "Jerry" Boykin, head of a Pentagon unit hunting for Osama Bin Laden, as he makes derogatory statements about Islam in U.S. churches. NBC News also looks at "how war in Iraq drained resources from the hunt for Bin Laden."
