The Age of Terror 4/4 - In the Name of the State (2002)
Part 4: "In the Name of the State"
This final episode examines potentially the most dangerous terror of all--that which is backed by the full force of the state. While Iranian, Libyan, and Iraqi sponsorship of terror is now well accepted, it is less often said that democratic governments have also been tempted to follow the same route against their enemies.
The film reveals the extent of American backing of the Contras in Nicaragua. Another aspect of terrorism is illustrated by the terrible human tragedies resulting from Argentinaʼs Dirty War of the late ʽ70s and ʽ80s. In concluding, the film briefly returns to the Middle East. Finally, we look at the lessons to be learnt from the Age of Terror for governments, the terrorists, and us ordinary citizens.
Actual footage of the events and interviews with many of the surviving terrorists provide a profound, multi-sided examination of the story of terrorism.
Directed and written by Jon Blair and Daniel Korn.
