Overview

In this documentary exploring the origins and motivations of the modern-day suicide bomber, former CIA spy Robert Baer (the basis for George Clooney's character in the film Syriana) travels to the Middle East to investigate the root of the chilling "pathological virus" that has driven many desperate fanatics to seek honor and glory through death and destruction. From the 13-year-old boy that would serve as the world's first suicide bomber during the Iran-Iraq War to the truck bombers of South Lebanon and the modern-day "martyrs" who strap themselves with explosives before boarding Tel Aviv busses, Baer attempts to find out where the concept of suicide bombing went from battlefield strategy to urban-warfare standard.
