This strikingly prophetic report examines the threat to the security of the United States and the world from Pakistan's political instability, its nuclear weapons and its ties to the Taliban. Broadcast on Oct. 15, 2000, 11 months before the suicide bombings in the U.S., Kroft and Cockburn questioned Pakistan's ruler, General Pervez Musharraf, Islamic militants tied to Osama bin Laden and S. General Anthony Zinni about the volatile region. Using hidden cameras and facing obvious danger, these journalists prove the importance of international reporting when it is solidly researched, clearly told and visually impressive.

Steve Kroft, correspondent; Leslie Cockburn, producer; Don Hewitt, executive producer.
