Sunni Muslim Marine Lance Corporal Abdul Mohammed Bakr, on leave from Iraq with a few fights with Islam-bashing bigots on his record, is found shot dead in an alley, two blocks from the mosque where his father Khalid Mohammed Bakr is the well-integrated imam. Ducky chooses to honor the imam's religious plea by refusing to perform an autopsy but is ordered by the director, despite horrible Bosnian mass grave memories, then thinks up an unorthodox alternative method, which reveals Abdul was hit by a needle poisoned with rare octopus venom... Abby finds traces of explosives on Abdul and of contact with Al Qaeda centers on Abdul's computer, including its mysterious German recruiter Hans Staiger. An attempt to bug the mosque reveals it's already bugged by the FBI, but Special Agent Brent Langer refuses to give any details. Gibbs sees a link between all three recently deceased Muslim Marines, only... Written by KGF Vissers
