Ambassador, sorry, I got delayed.

Our RSO, John Lydon.

Marine Detachment Commander

John Baldwin.

Our new military attach,

Commander Keenan.

Welcome to the deep end,

Commander Keenan.

Here's the top sheet.

A small cadre of insurgents, former military

and loyal to ex-president Kirilov...

are stirring up opposition

to the new president.

This man is their leader, Tavarov...

who obviously ordered the hit

on the journalists' hotel.

They're hardliners,

old school communist, violently anti-US.

But mainly street corner show boaters,

until now.

- Comrade Tavarov.

- It's time, now.

- Luca.

- Sir.

Move in.

You sure you're all right to do this?

Your boyfriend was pretty insistent

that we stay out of trouble.

Well, trouble has a way of finding me.

How do you think I met him

in the first place?

This place is about to blow, you can feel it.

Come on.


Frank Gaines. CIA Station Chief.

Our new military attach,

Commander Keenan.

They still call you B.C.?

What do you mean?

Well, you go to a hotel, a half hour later

we have a body count of eight.

- Frank, Sam is on our side.

- So were those dead reporters.

Now, what's your intel on the gunmen

and the bombers?

Well, we have one major explosion

and three smaller blasts.

My contacts report roving bands of militia,

maybe as many as 500.

They've taken out

the military barracks here...

and the Civil Guard HQ here.

They've shot up US business interests too.

We have unconfirmed American casualties.

What about the rest of the army?

President Amirev sent General Borgov...

to take out what we thought

was a militia base camp.

Satellite pictures show

he's turned back from the mountains...

so I'd say five hours, minimum.

I'll give you three to one on Amirev

swinging from a rope by midnight.
