Lackawanna's Suspected Terrorists

NPR's Robert Siegel speaks with Lowell Bergman, producer and correspondent for PBS's Frontline, about The New York Times article he wrote with Matthew Purdy about recruits from Lackawanna. Bergman's article recounts a sting operation that preemptively identified and arrested suspected terrorists from Lackawanna, but also raises questions over the characterization of all the Lackawanna detainees as terrorists. A documentary based on the same material as this article is scheduled to air Thursday on PBS.
