Was in Tora

Bora 2001,

...military missed him.

Plans of

clearing up this war in Iraq are...

Anything other than war is hell.

I'd say, "Yes, Bill,

it does mean something

to the soldlers injured

and killed and their families.

...and they're parading things in

to try to get

public opinion to shift against it.

The point is Iraq started

before Halliburton.

This goes back

to the Kissinger era,

and is just now bearing fruit

for a lot of these guys.

It's not just U. S.

military over there.

It's Black Water,

Triple Canopy,

in what thousands of speclal

ops we're never going to know.

Redesign of the conduct of the war.

This has been confirmed.

It is expected that...

We are convinced

that it was necessary

and rlghteous...

I'd like to begin

with an apology.

Obviously, we all have better

ways of bringing in the new year.

Well, everyone...

except you, Denise.

This time last week,

on Christmas Eve,

our Department received

intelligence reports

indicating the whereabouts

of the Ace of Spades.

Three brave

American soldiers

acted on that intelligence

and killed him.

Excuse me.

However, it is with great

sadness that I report to you

that the soldiers

involved in that operation

all lost their

lives in it.

Now I'm not at liberty to

release their names at this time,

but I ask every

American to please

keep these three heroes in

their prayers this evening.

Now this, this is not an

end to the war on terror.

We fear it may merely

be a new beginning.

As a result, we have raised the

threat level effective immediately.

Now the President and Vice President

will return from holiday on Tuesday.

They've asked your networks for one

hour on Thursday to brief the nation.

Any questions you have will

be answered at that time.

Now, as we... as we

enter the New Year,

let us pray that

this will be the year

that sees an end

to global tyranny,

and delivers

world peace.

I bid you all

a good night,

a Happy New Year,

and God bless the

United States of America.

Thank you.

Mr. Secretary!

As was stated,

the President gets

back on Tuesday,

and will address the

nation on Thursday.

Sir.

Sir!

He popped up.

Excuse me?

He popped up.

When?

About an hour ago.

Oh, Christ.

It came from Texas. We thought

it would affect your statement.

And?

They've washed

their hands, sir.

They've said it's time

for you to clean it.

Now why do you

look so pleased?

Where?

On a bus. From New

York to Washington.

Hm.

You believe

in him, don't you?

No, the luxury of

believing in any one man

has a price tag someone

like me cannot afford.

But...

I believe that we trained a

man without moral conviction,

devoid of reason.

Given that, it makes

it far more serious.

Question:
What becomes of a

highly trained, motivated murderer

who sprouts

a conscience?

Infamy?

Mm, to

some, perhaps.

But perhaps he

becomes something else

to those in Texas,

to me, to his country,

with what he's seen, what he's

heard, what he thinks he knows,

he becomes

something far worse.

Which is?

A fire,

if you will,

that neither you

nor I can extinguish.

He becomes

a legend.

Who's on

the bus?

Seven and Eleven.

Oh, isn't

that cute.

Irony, sir. It's what

gets me through the day.

Phone Seven. Tell him to tag him.

Sir?

If he kills him, then what?

Right now, he's just

a whisper in the wind.

They die, his voice

can only get louder.

We have the luxury

of position and time.

He does not.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I

have your attention please.

Special Agent Robinson.

I don't mean to disturb you but

I'm conducting a test, a drill,
