They were pretty well organized, sir.

It was like a military operation.

- All right, Sergeant, you can go.

- Thank you.

I don't need to remind you that anything

about this incident is classified.

Yes, sir.

I'm curious, Sergeant,

why you didn't search their backpacks.

We tried to, sir.

The Berlin Police, they took over.

My standing orders were to hand over

the command to them in their territory.

So these terrorists dressed

as Berlin Police convinced you?

Excuse me, sir.

They were real cops.

Berlin Police has no record

of any detachment in that area...

during the time of the shooting.

If they weren't cops, sir, they had

a lot of help. They had the uniforms...

You're expert on Berlin police?

- Is that all, sir?

- For now, yes. Thank you, Sergeant.

You were with the Iran Delta

operation, correct?

The aborted rescue attempt.

Yes, sir.

Well, Sergeant, I find it interesting

that you are twice now involved...

in a situation where a degree of

negligence has resulted in a loss of...

I don't recall seeing you on that

Iranian desert that night, Colonel.

We were there, Sergeant.

We were in the city.

We were waiting.


Sundown Unit.

What's funny, Sergeant?

I've been doing this for 25 years, and

every time I meet one of you people...

covert ops, infiltrators...

I get this real bad feeling

in my guts.

I guess that's what you bring

to the party, though, right, sir?

What I bring to the party,


is competence.

There was no negligence

in those woods today, sir.

If you'll come out of the shadows long

enough to press charges against me...

I'd be glad to defend myself.

That won't be necessary, Sergeant.

That'll be all.

Yes, sir.

He's a good soldier, Colonel, and he

lost a fine boy up on that road today.

I don't quite understand
