With unprecedented access, National Geographic goes into the heart of the FBI for a revealing look at its complicated history, its top special agents and its most vital operation today: stopping terrorism. Immortalized in books and movies, and in its own controversial history, the FBI has long been shrouded in secrecy. Over the years, the FBI has been responsible for everything from tracking down the nation's most dangerous criminals and organized crime figures to the recovery of precious works of art and the execution of counterintelligence. Today, the nation's top investigative agency faces its heaviest burden - bringing security to an insecure land. National Geographic waves away the smoke and mirrors to take a revealing look at an institution at a crossroads, with unparalleled access to its director, its fabled team of profilers and its methods.
