Cast & Crew
For six years John O'Neill was the FBI's expert on Al Qaeda. O'Neill made repeated warnings of Al Qaeda's potential threat to the United States, but his warnings fell on deaf ears at the FBI headquarters. O'Neill left the FBI in the Summer of 2001 to take a head of security job at the World Trade Center, just weeks before September 11.
