Frontline presents a rare interview with the FBI agent who was at the center of the 9/11 investigation.

In a rare interview with Ali Soufan, the FBI agent who was at the center of the 9/11 investigations, Frontline correspondent Martin Smith uncovers an insider’s view on the “war on terror.” One of only eight Arabic-speaking FBI agents, Soufan explains why he believes the attacks on the World Trade Center could have been prevented and how the use of torture failed to produce actionable intelligence. Also in this hour: Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Dana Priest investigates the terrorism-industrial complex that grew up in the wake of 9/11. In “Are We Safer?” Priest explores the growing reach of homeland security, fusion centers, battlefield technologies, and data-collecting into the lives of ordinary Americans. Frontline "The Interrogator" airs Tuesday, September 13 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT 21.1/cable 1011 and 11).
