    Five years ago ABC aired “The Path to 9/11,” a five-hour docudrama that explained how terrorists plotted to attack America on that frightful September morning in 2001.

    In each century since our nation’s founding, foreign enemies have tested the strength of the American republic, our national security, and our political principles.
