Colombia is the world's second

largest recipient of U.S. military aid,

receiving approximately $1 billion a year

for training and equipping

the Colombian armed forces.

The revolutionary

armed forces of Colombia

are Latin America's oldest, largest

and best-equipped guerrilla insurgency.

Known by their Spanish acronym FARC,

they have waged a cruel,

50-year campaign of terror

against the government

and the people

of Colombia.

Their tactics include bombings,

murder, mortar attacks, kidnapping,

extortion and hijacking.

American soldiers are frequently deployed

to assist in anti-narcotics

and anti-guerrilla operations,

and the American government has posted

over $70 million of reward money

for any information leading

to the capture of FARC leadership.

The Colombian people frequently

take to the streets

to protest the FARC's brutal methods

and to call for the end to the violence

and for the release of

hundreds of hostages.

Although, with its massive

cocaine revenue,

the FARC has been able to equip its army

with the most modern weapons

of any terrorist organization in the world.

We have movement on Lago.

Principal acquired.

Flashpoint Bravo, what is your count?

We are minus two.

Three minutes to full count.

Flashpoint Charlie, slow him down.

I got him, but if I engage now,

this thing blows wide open.

No choice, Charlie. Move for intercept.

Copy that, Alpha.

Abort, Charlie, abort!

First rule of engagement,

always know your target.

All right, Charlie,

that's gonna take him five.

Proceed to jump point.

- Bang!

- Surprise!

Hey, special delivery for that old bastard.

- We got you something else.

- Where is she?

God bless America.

Yeah, baby.

Very nice. Very nice.

For he's a jolly good fellow

Which nobody can deny

Which nobody can deny

Which nobody can deny

- That wasn't supposed to happen.

- Again?

Derricks, what the hell

is wrong with you, man?

Don't get hot about it, all right?

Least the brew is cold.


- That's a small drink.

- One more thing!

- All right.

In order to maintain

the element of surprise

when surveilling from a tall structure,

make sure to watch your shadow-throw

so as not to reveal your position.

Tomas? Tomas!


- Good morning, sir.

- Morning.

Still got you at the desk, Commander?

Fastest way to kill a SEAL

is give him some pencils to push.

I'd rather be pinned down

in a fire fight any day.

Some of us are just born to it.

Let's get out of this prison cell.

What do you know about Colombia?

Specifically the FARC?

Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia?

The most powerful, most dangerous

Communist guerrilla force on the planet.

They've territorial control of

almost half the country.

Been at war with the Colombian

government for 40 years.

NSA intel has the FARC

responsible for this.

They kill about 3,000 Colombians a year.

They stay funded by protecting

the cartel drug operations down there.

Right. People up here buy their drugs,

and that money keeps these guys

in bullets and body bags.

- Exactly.

- So what's the op?

Operation Ghost Watch. Strictly recon.

NSA Keyhole picked this up in

the deep jungle outside of Puerto Limon.

It's about 150 klicks south of Bogota.

Now, this...

One month ago.

This, yesterday.

Roughly triple the under-roof capacity.

So these guys are either

storing up the coke for a long winter,

or prepping for a serious

rumble in the jungle.

Exactly. Our job is to find out which.

We got it on good intel,

something major is going down

tomorrow morning.

We're gonna ghost in, see what's what.

Go in with cameras rolling,

get it all on tape.

Wait, wait, wait.

You say tomorrow morning?

Yeah. That's right.

We're running this op in the daylight.

We're all for catching some rays, LT,

but that's coloring way outside the lines.

Got no choice.

They want eyes on the action.

Not before. Not after.

- Questions?

- Yeah.

What about the Colombians?

We're not jointing with them?


FARC's got too many hooks in

with the National Army,

and a lot of ops already have been blown

because of tip offs,

which is why we're gonna

mission-plan in the air

and helo into the Rio Ariari.

Should be fun.

Wheels-up 1700 hours.

- Yeah.

- Yes.

Sir, given the extreme sensitivity

of this mission,

I believe it is my sworn duty

to respectfully inform you

that you are now much too ancient

to effectively lead this team

behind enemy lines.

My ancient memory

recalls something about

me almost tackling you to get you from

ringing that bell

at the end of BUD /S training.

Okay? Who's dragged you out of

half a dozen bar fights?

That would be you.

Who's got your back 24/7?

Who makes sure that

you come home alive all the time?

- That would be you.

- You're damn skippy.

See you guys on the tarmac.

Copy that, LT.

New intel says that it might be a meet

between FARC

and Colombian sympathizers.

Now, you have evac here, 20 klicks east.

Safe location and DEA contact here

if you need it.

Now keep in mind, FARC's not just

some hillbilly rebel insurgency.

They don't play.

Every year we pump half a billion bucks

of military aid into the region,

and the guerrillas are still coming.

They are heavily armed and well trained,

and we're playing in their sandbox.

Stay frosty and get ready.

We are entering drop zone.

Word is, Ghost Watch is a go.

Stay on your triggers
