The American and British intelligence agencies come across a major Al Qaeda plot about which they have no clue. They do not know what, when , where and who it targeted. They have no source in Al Qeda to get any more information, the only way is to plant a mole in Al Qaeda, an impossible act by any means...

The Afgan is Izmat Khan, a five year prisoner of Guantanamo Bay and a former senior commander of the Taliban. The Afgan is also Colonel Mike Martin, a war veteran who have operated in almost all war zones around the world. While the Al Qaeda prepares for the big act in front of which 9/11 look very small.
