Forget about nuclear missiles—the decisive weapon of the twentieth century is the CAR BOMB. We now know you can defeat a superpower, start a civil war or just blow up your own government with a trunk-load of homemade explosives and a battered old vehicle. From the Middle East to Oklahoma, Afghanistan and New York's Times Square, the car bomb has shaped human conflict for decades. Even today, it remains the number one terrorist threat across the world. In this startling documentary feature, ex-CIA agent Robert Baer—whose life and work was depicted by George Clooney in Stephen Gaghan's 2005 Oscar-winning drama Syriana—uncovers the history of this extraordinary weapon for the first time.
