In December 2008, five men were sentenced to life for plotting to kill American soldiers at the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey. Using the Fort Dix story as a case study, Need to Know explores the profiles of the individuals convicted, and examines the U.S. strategy post 9-11 for stopping and finding homegrown terrorists before they strike.
