Frontline receives nine Emmy nominations, including for: The Interrogator: An interview with Ali Soufan, the FBI agent at the center of the 9/11 investigation, and author of The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al Qaeda. On September 11, 2001, FBI Special Agent Ali H. Soufan was handed a secret file. Had he received it months earlier-when it was requested-the attacks on New York and Washington could have been prevented. During his time on the front lines, Soufan helped thwart plots around the world and elicited some of the most important confessions from terrorists in the war against al-Qaeda-without laying so much as a hand on them. Most of these stories have never been reported before, and never by anyone with such intimate firsthand knowledge.
