Secrets Of The Secret Service is an exhaustive investigation into America’s most mysterious law enforcement agency, detailing the weapons and tactics they use to protect the President of the United States.

Many of the service’s current methods and technology have been introduced as a result of tragedy. The assassination of President John F Kennedy laid bare a catalogue of errors which left him vulnerable.

One of the major innovations to arise from that fateful day in Dallas was the redesign of the presidential limousine — which is more like a tank than a car, sporting bullet-proof windows, tear gas cannons and significant armour plating.

One of the things to come from it was a change in the weaponry used. Agents now carry FNP90 submachine guns, with body armour piercing rounds. These allow an assailant to be taken out with pinpoint accuracy, without danger to the inevitable large crowds surrounding the President.

Including interviews with ex-agents and a former White House press secretary, Secrets Of The Secret Service examines everything from the service’s training techniques to the protocols used when the President is aboard Air Force 1.

Taxi to the Dark Side is a 2007 documentary film directed by American filmmaker Alex Gibney, and produced by Eva Orner and Susannah Shipman, which won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. It focuses on the murder of an Afghan taxi driver named Dilawar, beaten to death by American soldiers while being held in extrajudicial detention at the Parwan Detention Facility.

Taxi to the Dark Side examines the USA’s policy on torture and interrogation in general, specifically the CIA’s use of torture and their research into sensory deprivation. The film includes opposition to the use of torture from its political and military opponents, as well as the defense of such methods; attempts by Congress to uphold the standards of the Geneva Convention forbidding torture; and popularization of the use of torture techniques in shows such as 24.

It is part of the Why Democracy? series, which consists of ten documentary films from around the world questioning and examining contemporary democracy. As part of the series, Taxi to the Dark Side was broadcast in over 30 different countries around the world from October 8–18, 2007. The BBC cut the film to 79 minutes for broadcast.
