    Synopsis

    Editor's Notes:We're used to hearing stories of American forces fighting terrorism in far-flung locations like Afghanistan and Iraq; in this National Headliner Award-winning episode of Dan Rather Reports, the enemy is much closer to home than ever imagined in the Philippines, as groups with links to Al-Qaeda plot, plan and strike against civilisation from inside one of America's longtime allies. An examination of how far-spread global terror is -- and how fiercely America fights to stop it -- The Forgotten War shows that terrorism isn't just from, or in, one part of the world to disquieting effect.      Synopsis: A National Headliner Award Winner. A look back to the remote jungles of the southern Philippines and the Philippine military's war against Abu Sayyaf guerrillas. American Special Forces are there, quietly but effectively supporting their mission, against a reputed Al-Qaeda affiliate. It is one place where 'the war on terror' seems to be working. We have unprecedented access in an extraordinary place where poverty and violence meet natural beauty.
