What's going on? I got both negotiating

teams buttoned up, waiting on you.

- We've got a situation here.

- Hand it over to the Berlin police.

- We have no jurisdiction.

- Yes, sir.

Look in their rucksacks, will you?

Papa One, are we secure?

We're secure here, sir.

All right, let's go.

I am pleased to announce

we have reached an agreement.

Mr. Foreign Minister.

From all indications,

we have an agreement.

And if we stay on track,

it can be signed...

at the United Nations

in ten days.

What was the compromise

on verification?

There'll be a formal briefing tomorrow.

Thank you very much.

No more questions.

How about a statement?

So we have a treaty...

and as we heard it will be signed by the

general secretary and the president...

at the United Nations

ten days from now.

But first the two leaders will take

what amounts to a symbolic journey...

to herald the end of the era

of the nuclear threat.

Although the itinerary

has not been released...

sources tell us the general secretary

will meet the president in Washington.

From there they will go

to the University of Chicago...

where the atom

was first cracked.

And fittingly, just before Christmas,

the season of peace...

they will go to the United Nations

for this historic signing.

This is Ike Pappas

reporting from West Berlin.

Well, Yuri?

It's in all our interests, Yuri.

I don't need to hear any more.


Don't rub your eyes!

Michaels! Get down!


Here! Kitner!

Yeah, Top.

Call a medic!

Tiger Base, we need a medic.

We're two klicks from the chateau

on the main access road.

We need a medic now!

Oh, f*ck.

Aw, shit.

Goddamn it!

Backpacker's not here, sir.

Who are they?

Members of a terrorist group who've

claimed responsibility for the attack.

Terrorists, sir?
