Afterword Summary and Analysis

In March 2003, Baer goes to Iraq with CBS news to cover the events. He knows the invasions will change the Middle East. There are terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia. The Saudis say this is a wake-up call for them. Radical Wahhabis clerics publicly withdraw their calls for jihad.

After the fall of Baghdad, Baer travels around the various countries learning what the key players think of the situation. He talks to both Sunni and Shi'a clerics. They are divided in the opinions of whether Muslims will go to Iraq to fight the Americans.
