This story examines the insurgency in Iraq from multiple perspectives. It focuses solely on foreign fighters coming into Iraq to join Abu Musab Zarqawi's forces, but the investigation follows insurgents coming in from Europe, Lebanon, Syria and America. The story explores these fighters' motives and reveals that their convictions are driven by U.S. policy and Muslim solidarity rather than hatred of freedom or socioeconomic factors. It includes interviews with experts, jihadis and their family members, and military commanders.
