Question: Why did Michael want teams on this date, before and after?

Context: Michael and his team can travel in time. They decided to stop 9-11 incident. So Michael put two teams before and after this date(9/11/2001).

I want to ask somebody a question on Michael's decision of putting teams before and after this date.

I want to highlight "before and after" in my question.

"had tried" is past perfect tense.


Thank you for this. But your second part of the reply not matching to my question. May be you should read my question again.

"prior to a filmy career" means "before he started his filmy career".

Though he is pursuing a filmy career now, he started it in the past. And that justifies the past perfect tense in "had tried".
