30 Years Later: The 1993 Bombing and Operation Tradebom

On February 26, 1993, terrorists detonated a van loaded with explosives in the parking garage of the World Trade Center. The attack killed six people, including a pregnant woman, and injured thousands. At the time, this was the largest improvised explosive device ever ignited on American soil. To mark 30 years since the attack, Marc Smerling, Emmy-winning producer and creator of the new Apple Original podcast,Operation: Tradebom, is joined by three individuals featured in the program: former FBI Agents John Anticev and Frank Pellegrino, and former NYPD officer, Cory Cuneo. Together, in conversation with Museum Director, Clifford Chanin, they recount responding to the attack; discuss Tradebom, the FBI’s investigation into the bombing; and reflect on how the first attempt to bring down the Twin Towers changed our world.
