But in the aftermath of the day's victory, one boy's fearful act of betrayal will mark their lives forever and set in motion an epic quest for redemption.

During the Iraq war, U.S. Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller leads Mobile Exploitation Team-Delta (MET-D) on a fruitless search of suspected WMD sites. When he wonders out loud why the intelligence is all wrong, he's told not rock the boat. Soon Miller, working with a local Iraqi informant named Freddy, is going after a Ba'athist general named Al-Rawi. CIA agent Martin Brown and journalist Lawrie Dayne share Miller's doubts; each have some pieces to the puzzle. They try to help Miller out, but Department of Defense official Clark Poundstone treats the WMD problem like a PR kerfuffle. When a Delta Force squad is dispatched to intimidate him and shut his team down, Miller's questioning mutates into a quest: to learn the identity and motives of "Magellan," the highly protected source of this faulty information

The Renaissance and Islam ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"In this film we will reveal how a golden age of invention and scholarship thrived in the Islamic World at a time when Europe lingered in a dark age; how Muslim scholars brought together for the first time the ideas of the Greeks and Romans with Persian and Indian mathematics and astronomy and developed it into the beginnings of modern Science. We will reveal the first contacts by which European scholars discovered this treasury of knowledge and how it was developed by generations of Arab-admirers (including Galileo & Copernicus) into modern science. This episode focuses on the House of Wisdom in Baghdad, the great university mosques of Cairo and uncovers ancient documents translated in Baghdad by Islamic scholars, now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford."--SBS website
