Brooklyn to Baghdad is the true story of a retired NYPD intelligence sergeant applying his street-cop tactics and interrogation skills against a lethal insurgency that had infected Iraq. A group of retired special forces soldiers and a law enforcement expert came together to form the counter-insurgency group code-named "Phoenix Team." Exposing the corruption of both the Iraqi and US governments, Phoenix Team faces serious setbacks and challenges. Brooklyn to Baghdad shows the effectiveness of Phoenix Team in their ability to process forensic evidence and human intelligence gleaned through interrogations. Throughout, there are many humorous and emotional anecdotes that reveal the men behind the missions and the toll the theater of war takes on real human lives.
