In "Trail of a Terrorist," a FRONTLINE co-production with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, correspondent Terence McKenna traces the investigation of a 32-year-old Algerian named Ahmed Ressam and the global terrorist network in which he operated, following a trail from North Africa to Canada, from small towns in France to the mountains of Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden's training camps, and ultimately back to Canada and the United States. FRONTLINE uncovers troubling questions about the security of the U.S.-Canada border and chilling details about global terrorist cells and Osama bin Laden's recruiting and training network.
