After a battle in North Africa, a team of American soldiers discover that one of the men they killed was al-Qaida's top man. An investigation into his computer files suggest a big U.S. corporation is funneling money to terrorists, but U.S. Special Forces attack the team before they can tell anyone. Sgt. Odelle Ballard survives and joins forces with corporate lawyer Peter Decker, who is working on a merger for the company in question, and political activist Harrison Walters, who has stumbled upon evidence of the conspiracy, himself. The three try to save their country and themselves by exposing the people behind the cover-up.
