On March 9, 1977, Washington, DC, came under attack. Seven men stormed the headquarters of B'nai B'rith International, taking 100 employees hostage inside, while other forces attacked the Islamic Center of Washington and the municipal government's District Building.

It was a terrorist attack like none other, and Shahn Mufti's account has a cast that includes Muammar Gaddhafi, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and future D.C. mayor Marion Barry.
