Based on work first shown on 60 Minutes, a riveting, behind-the-scenes look of the Yazidi genocide and the terrorist threat it holds.

The massacre of the Yazidi people by ISIS was nothing less than genocide. In refugee camps in Iraqi Kurdistan, the authors brought a skilled team to interview more than a hundred ISIS survivors and document what they experienced and saw. These former slaves observed their torturers and knew from the inside the secret facilities that ISIS has kept hidden from the world. What their testimony reveals is an organization whose ambition is power, regardless of their claim to be “soldiers of God.” Their fighters are paid with sex, money, and the power of life and death over captives. Their promised paradise is here and now, not after death.

The Yazidis and other conquered peoples are instruments for this exercise of power. Men who don’t swear allegiance are executed. Women become slaves for sex or reproduction, and their offspring will serve the cause. In mobile training camps, the captured children are drugged, indoctrinated, and taught to shoot Kalashnikovs, plant explosives, and handle suicide vests. They are the intended products of the terrorist factory. In this taut, disturbing account, the authors document a utilitarian genocide that holds an implicit threat to other counties, including those in the West.
