It's not as clean as a knife. | See the jagged edge of the wound?

It's not big enough to be scissors, | so it's something smaller.

Excuse me, all film stays in-house. | Orders.

Whose orders?

What was she doing here so late?

You're not cleared.

Who invited you here?

We did.

Sir, he's a D.C. homicide cop.

If I'm not mistaken, | what I see over there is a homicide.

But jurisdiction-

It can go to hell.

I'm in charge of White House security.

I'm the President's National Security | Advisor.

A murder 40 yards from where | the President sleeps...

...is a matter of national security.

Alvin Jordan.

Harlan Regis, homicide.

Do you know why she was working so late | on Friday night?

The government doesn't close | because it's Friday.

Yes, I understand.

Do you know how many people were | in the White House?

31.

31?

Carry on, Detective.

Thank you.

She was killed in my house.

He's all yours.

I'm just trying to do my job.

I guess I'm supposed to get | my briefings from CNN?

No, from your Secret Service liaison.

For the task force.

He didn't assign me one.

He did. | Nina Chance.

I see.

They think I'm BooBoo the Fool.

Excuse me?

I guess he figures I'll be easier | on you than some rookie with acne.

I'm an agent | for the United States Secret Service.

Which means I can answer questions | relating to White House security.

I resent the implication-
