The Next Wave: On the Hunt for Al Qaeda's American Recruits

This video is no longer available online.

From Guantánamo to Afghanistan, Fox News national correspondent Catherine Herridge has looked the world’s worst terrorists in the face. A “reporter’s reporter,” she and her investigative team spent years scouring the United States and the world to uncover the secrets of the next wave. Who are the recruits for the next wave? They live next door. Born here, raised here, plotting here, the terrorists of al Qaeda 2.0 aim to kill Americans. And our government helps.

In The Next Wave, Herridge reveals for the first time the story of how that blood-crazed American, Anwar al-Awlaki – now hiding in Yemen – was treated to Pentagon pomp as a “moderate Muslim” as well as how he slipped through the FBI’s grasp and how the U.S. Justice Department hid his movements from the 9/11 Commission. New evidence, as revealed by Herridge, even suggests that Awlaki was an overlooked key player in the 9/11 plot itself.

The terrorists next door turn our tech against us, exploiting our outdated laws. Online terror recruiters are one of the Web’s greatest success stories, yet our government refuses to stop them. Activists howl about “inhuman” conditions at Guantánamo – while pampered inmates laugh at our weaknesses. Herridge warns that the next wave of deadly terror is here and now, and that the next massacre in the name of Islam will be “Made in the U.S.A.”
