It was not long

before that tower collapsed.

The loss of life so far

is catastrophic,

estimated at 10,000.

But that number

could go much higher.

These images from just across

the Potomac River

of the Pentagon,

still on fire, a fire

burning out of control

after a hijacked airliner,

another one,

we believe this one to have

been a United Airlines flight,

smashed into the Pentagon

around 9:

Yo. What's up, Cap?

- What up, Milo?

- What are you doing here?

Trying to get my team back.

Ah, your little jalapeo

ain't gonna be too happy

- about that, huh?

- Yeah, maybe not.

What are you

talking about?

This team's done.

And thanks to you,

we're gonna be watching this whole

thing go down on fucking CNN.

What I did,

I did for my family.

I didn't know there was

a goddamn war coming.

Oh, buddy, you and your

family, you're gonna be fine.

From your cushy little office,

you're gonna be fucking fine!

You think I'm gonna be

sitting on the sidelines

with this shit happening,

Dill? Huh?

Did you talk

to Bowers?

Yeah, I did. I told him I

want back in and he said no.

He won't say no to me.

Tell me you didn't submit

that paperwork.

No, it's on my desk.


If anybody

in the Middle East did this,

the Fifth Group's up.

F*ck yeah, bro. F*ck yeah.

I mean, we would have been.

If we had a fucking captain.

We'll be in this fight, boys.

You mark my words.

He's in a meeting, sir.

It's a private meeting, sir.

Your retirement papers?

There's nothing

to submit, sir.

I'm still Chief Warrant

Officer of ODA 595,

and my team has

more combat experience

than the rest

of Fifth Group combined.

All that hell we went through

in Somalia, Desert Storm,

that means somethin'.

You break this team up,

you're cutting the head off

your most venomous snake, sir.
