Operation: Tradebom Podcast Aired Last Episodes
Welcome to Operation: Tradebom, a gripping podcast that takes you on a journey back in time. To the arrival of terrorism on American shores. Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award-winning producer, director, and screenwriter Marc Smerling. Known for his exceptional work on The Jinx, Capturing the Friedmans, and the podcast Crimetown expertly guides us through this harrowing story.
Inside Operation: Tradebom
In 1993, a group of men set off a bomb in the garage beneath the World Trade Center. Intending to bring down the North tower into the South tower. Also, this was the largest improvised explosive device ever detonated on American soil. The explosion caused a 100-foot crater five stories deep, killing six people, and injuring thousands in its wake. However, the two Gulf Wars, the ongoing Afghanistan conflict, and the tragedy of 9/11 have overshadowed this story.
We follow the investigators of New York’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), comprising FBI bureaucrats and NYPD detectives. As they conduct a new type of international investigation. The JTTF hunts for the mastermind behind the bombing and realizes they’re dealing with something bigger than anyone ever imagined.
The team made a startling discovery: for instance, tensions over the US exit from Afghanistan created a breeding ground for new terrorism. It turns out that Israel’s treatment of Palestinians in the Middle East has also contributed to this dangerous situation.
Through firsthand accounts, we get a glimpse of the global tensions that stymied attempts to prevent future disasters. Also, Operation: Tradebom reveals larger players at work and exposes the terrifying reality of terrorism. With Smerling’s expert storytelling, you’ll be on the edge of your seat as you experience the events that set the stage for the world we live in today. Don’t miss out on this must-listen podcast!
