Robert Baer, former Middle East CIA undercover operative and the author whose bestseller See No Evil was the basis for the Syriana movie, and the man George Clooney’s character in the movie is based upon.

Robert Baer returns to his former center of operations, the Middle East, to trace the origins of the modern day suicide bomber. In this poignant documentary, Baer reveals the fascinating story of the world’s first suicide bomber, 13-year-old Hossein Fahmideh who was martyred in the Iran-Iraq war and is now a hero in Iran; and visits his highly decorated grave in the graveyard of martyrs just outside Tehran.
