"The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear" is a BBC documentary film which demonstrates that Al Qaeda does not exist and that the idea of terrorism as a global menace "is a fantasy, which has been exaggerated and distorted by politicians.

In researching the Bush administration’s manipulation of public perceptions,
I came across an interesting summary of the State Department’s Philip
Zelikow, who was Executive Director on the 9-11 Commission, that greatest of
all charades. According to Wikipedia:

"Prof. Zelikow’s area of academic expertise is the creation and
maintenance of, in his words, 'public myths’ or 'public presumptions’ which
he defines as 'beliefs (1) thought to be true ( although not necessarily
known with certainty) and (2) shared in common within the relevant political
community.’ In his academic work and elsewhere he has taken a special
interest in what he has called 'searing’ or 'molding’ events (that) take on
transcendent’ importance and therefore retain their power even as the
experiencing generation passes from the scene
.He has noted that 'a
history’s narrative power is typically linked to how readers relate to the
actions of individuals in the history; if readers cannot make the connection
to their own lives, then a history may fail to engage them at all."
