Until something happens...

my plan is to stay in this wonderful bar

of ours and get drunk.

The locals are torching your flag.

You know, we should film them.

When they burn something interesting

I will hit record.

- Like the new President?

- Amirev?

Amirev. The question is, will he last?

Well, he made it through the first week.

The people love him

and he won the election fair and square.

Our reluctant loser, Kirilov,

has other plans for Amirev.

Stop! IDs please.

I'm here to collect Commander Sam Keenan.

- Thank you, sir.

- Thank you.

So, nobody's going to the airport

to pick up your new Ambassador?

New second-in-command,

Deputy Ambassador...

ain't worth changing shirts for.

That's not who they're flying in today.

I've heard it's the new military attach.

Military attach, interesting

You know, word on the street is the militia

with Kirilov are planning a coup.

Amirev knows that he has

a serious insurgency problem on his hands.

He also knows that his army

simply isn't up to handling it.

Yeah, no shit.

Which is exactly why

Norland requested this guy.

He's the kind of guy you definitely want

on your team if you're expecting trouble.

And let's face it, the US are taking

this insurgency problem very seriously.

So, who is he?

His name is Keenan.

Commander Samuel Keenan. Navy SEAL.

He's the toughest guy I have ever met.

- Your bag, sir.

- Thank you.

- Sounds like you know him.

- Yeah.

Michelle and I embedded

with his team in El Basra.

She however got to know him

a little better than I did.

Sir.

Oh, not our super clean

Michelle "United World News" Whitman?

The very same.

Delta Four,

requesting clearance for take-off.

Michelle told me that he's coming

by the hotel before he starts work.

Lucky Miss Whitman.

- What's your name, Corporal?

- Butler, sir.

Do you know the Hotel Continental?

Sir, my orders were to take you

straight to the Embassy, sir.

Then on to the Presidential Palace.

But the hotel is kind of on the way.

In the opposite direction.

- Give me an hour, okay?

- Yes, sir.

Who is it?

How are you?

- You okay?

- I'm fine.

- Hey, man.

- Journalist scum!

Shit.

Sam.

Hey, buddy, stop.

- Go home, we don't want you here!

- We're press!

Foreigner news programs to leave!

- Out the door!

- I'll follow, I'll follow!

Get out of the way. You, get down.

- Sir, you okay?

- I'm fine.

- Get some ambulances, now.

- Yes, sir.

You, come on, let's get out of here.

Michelle, you better come with me.

You'll be safe at the Embassy.

- I'm a reporter, Sam.

- Like him.

You know where the phone is?

You, answer me.

You want to be next?

If we don't show the world

what's happening, who will?

Sam, you know me well enough by now.

Sir, Civil Guards are on their way.

You should not be here when they arrive.

Let's go.

Stay off the streets

and let me find out what's going on.

Don't worry, Sam, we'll be fine.

Michelle, I'll come back for you.

Jesus Christ, that's gotta be a bomb.

- What's there?

- It's the army barracks.

This country is supposed to be stable.

They just had elections.

Well, someone didn't like the result.

Move on.

Gunnery Sergeant Darnell.

Commander Sam Keenan.

Gunnery Sergeant.

Gunny will do just fine, sir.

- Nice town, huh?

- Sleepy.

It has its moments. Good to meet you, sir.

Commander Keenan. I'm Jennifer Lennard.

- Nice to meet you.

- Right this way, please.

Ambassador Norland

speaks very highly of you.

George? He's a good man.

I get the feeling this town

is going to need him more than ever.

He's right through here.

Sam, how are you, son?
