Content descriptions

General Note:
"In late October, 1983 in Beirut, Lebanon, a truck loaded with explosives and driven by a suicidal member of the Hezbollah terrorist organization crashed through the security perimeter of the U.S. Marine barracks and slammed into the compound. In the ensuing explosion, 241 Americans were killed. This was the harbinger of many suicide bombings to come--including the shocking terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Join experts as they re-open the file on the Beirut disaster to analyze the methods and the motives of the typical suicide bomber. Investigators demonstrate how the Beirut bombing has become a microcosm of the current worldwide epidemic of bombings and suicidal terrorists. Military security personnel discuss the unique challenges involved in combating suicide attackers and newly developed techniques that can prevent similar bombings in the future" -- Publisher web site.
