Summary
After 9/11, America's stated mission was to "bring the fight to the terrorists." Iraq and Afghanistan became, in essence, two battlefields in the West's war on terror. But what happens when terror rises from the very soil that foreign wars are waged to protect? Are European countries in particular overlooking the need to fight a different kind of fight, one in which the hearts and minds of their own citizens are at stake? This program looks at developments in England and Belgium (the correspondent's native country) in an effort to understand how radicalism can take root after being imported from extremist hotbeds in Pakistan and other Islamic countries. Viewers meet worshippers from mosques where the London subway bombers of 2005 were radicalized, two Brussels detectives who broke up a regional al Qaeda network, and a Pakistani organization known as al-Muhajiroun, which functions as a sort of travel agency for aspiring terrorists.
