Episode Summary

Iraq's Most Wanted
They're cold-blooded killers. And they're not particularly selective about their victims -- coalition troops, international journalists, innocent Iraqi civilians -- just about anyone in Iraq will do, as long as the death causes despair and disruption. These slaughterers want political power. And, in their minds, the more havoc they wreak, the better their chances of seizing it. In the south, militant cleric Muqtada al-Sadr unleashes his militia on U.S. Marines policing Najaf. The two forces battle hand-to-hand in a 1,000-year-old cemetery. In central Iraq, a skilled insurgent mortar team tries to disrupt national elections by targeting polling places in and around Fallujah. Marine Recon squads quietly hunt the mortarmen down and kill them one-by-one. In the northern city of Mosul, Uday and Qusay Hussein, the sons of Saddam, help plan and fund insurgent training and operations. U.S. Special Forces and 101st Airborne troops surround their hardened, reinforced hideout and decimate it with heavy machine guns and a TOW missile barrage. For Iraq's Most Wanted, the message is clear: Surrender, and you might live. Resist, and you'll likely crumble in a storm of lead.moreless
