A new film from Academy Award™-nominated director Michele Ohayon.
As former counter-terrorism czar, Richard Clarke repeatedly warned against an attack from Al Qaeda. Subsequently, he was perhaps the only member of the Bush administration who took responsibility for the lack of preparedness prior to the 9/11 attack. His famous testimony 'your government failed you, I failed you' was followed by a heartfelt apology to the families of the victims, a confession that moved the world.
From award-winning director Michele Ohayon, S.O.S. looks at counter terrorism around the world, bringing new strategies to avoid future failures. S.O.S is a timely eye-opener, as it brings to the surface hidden threats that must be addressed immediately to make sure governments put past experience to work in the service of a safer future.
“Your government failed you. Those entrusted with protecting you failed you. And I failed you. We tried hard, but that doesn't matter because we failed. And for that failure, I would ask, once all the facts are out, for your understanding and for your forgiveness.”—Richard Clarke
