The threat from Iran to our homeland is not new. In 2011, Iran plotted to commit a terrorist bombing attack to kill an ambassador at a high-end restaurant in Washington, DC where many politicians and celebrities dine. Fortunately the plot was thwarted, but former Defense Secretary Gen. Mattis considered it an act of war on American soil. Standing outside this restaurant in the Georgetown area of DC, I tell the story of the plot and its implications.

A Death in Tehran
At the height of the protests following Iran’s controversial presidential election this summer, a young woman named Neda Agha Soltan was shot and killed on the streets of Tehran. Her death — filmed on a cameraphone, then uploaded to the web — quickly became an international outrage, and Agha Soltan became the face of a powerful movement that threatened the hard-line government’s hold on power. With the help of a unique network of correspondents in and out of the country, FRONTLINE investigates the life and death of the woman whose image remains a potent symbol for those who want to keep the reform movement alive.
