PSIP Description: 
Martin Smith and Charles Sennott examine the rise and rapid fall of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.
Long Description: 
It took 80 years to rise to power, but now, after only 12 months, the Muslim Brotherhood has been ousted by its longtime foe -- the Egyptian military. In this FRONTLINE report, veteran Middle East Correspondents Martin Smith (Obama's War, Return of the Taliban, Revolution in Cairo) and Charles Sennott of GlobalPost (Revolution in Cairo) examine the rise and rapid fall of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood. How did the Brotherhood lose control? Could the U.S. have done anything to alter the course of events in Egypt? With unique access to the Brotherhood's leadership, FRONTLINE follows the Islamist movement as it plots its next move.
