Summary
A spectacularly gripping documentary that unfolds like a great political thriller. It's the cross-cut tale of two men whose fateful meeting propelled them on divergent courses with Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, 9/11, Guantanamo, and the U.S. Supreme Court. The Oath offers a rare window into a hidden realm and the international impact of the U.S. War on Terror
