Genre: Short
14 min

There's a reporter

in London named Simon Ross.

We caught some phone chatter we

didn't like and his name came up.

They put a team out there

to take a better look.

They've been sitting

on him pretty tight all day.

I just got a call about an hour ago.

We got a real problem here.

What kind of problem?

This guy's a writer

for The Guardian.

He's preparing an expos on Jason

Bourne, Treadstone and Blackbriar.

Sourced how?


From Bourne?

Is it possible?


We had Bourne

six weeks ago in Moscow.

He was on foot, wounded, with a

full Cossack posse up his ass.


he walked out of there.

I've kind of lost my perspective

on what's possible.

You sound tired, Ezra.

I would make more of an

effort if I were you.

You're the director of the

Central Intelligence Agency

of the United States of America,

for God's sake. Act like it.

If I go down for this, Mark,

if this goes any more wrong...


you were given a Ferrari and your

people treated it like a lawn mower.

You break it, you bought it.

It was ever thus.

Well, maybe I should be

speaking directly to Ric Byer.

No, no, no. You're in

enough trouble already.

I'll let him know.

Julie, is that the last of them?

Terrific, thank you.

So, the last audit

on Treadstone?

Third page.

Seven weeks ago.

This is from the CIA,

or this is ours?

Oh, no. It's theirs.

This whole pile is theirs.

Is anybody reading

these ground cables?

Look, how wide are we digging?

What do you mean, "how wide?"

Just get me everything.

Treadstone, Blackbriar, Outcome, LARX.

All the beta programs.

And that means take it all the

way back to Emerald Lake.

I want all points of convergence,

I want all research personnel,

I want to know

about anybody who talked

to anybody about

anything at any time.

Seriously, has anybody looked

at this stuff on Bourne?

The field reports.

It's incredible.

Three years off-program, non-med,

first-gen, still rolling.

If there's any way we can score

some data off of this...

if they caught him alive...

I mean, even as a base line.

Even forensically.

Maybe you're in

the wrong meeting.

Because the meeting that we're

having is about an infection.

We're here talking about

a serious infection

and all we're trying to do is

determine how far it's spread

so that we know how much we have

to cut to save the patient.

You have never

heard of Treadstone.

And Bourne... I don't care if they bag

him and drop the body on the sidewalk.

We're not going to touch it.

You're going to turn off

that side of your head now

and get with

the rest of us here.

And you're going to start to consider

the magnitude of what we're facing

if this moves sideways on us.

Because if we get

into this, we dig around,

and we find out

these CIA clowns

have let this Treadstone mess metastasize

into the rest of these programs?

Just pray that

that doesn't happen.

We're just getting reports

coming in now from Waterloo Station

that there has been a shooting.

Let's take you live down there

and speak to Jeremy Thompson.


There's still an awful lot of

confusion here at Waterloo Station.

As you can see, ambulances

have been called up.

The victim, Simon Ross,

was a veteran reporter

with The Guardian

newspaper in London.

He was pronounced

dead at the scene.

Police are now telling us

there was at least one,

and possibly as many

as three, shots fired.

Simon Ross, a reporter with

The Guardian newspaper...

Hey, James.


Oh, sh*t, sorry. I didn't

know I was coming back.

It's all right.

Can you tell Dr. Hillcott
