XIII: The Conspiracy

Synopsis: The first female US President Sally Sheridan is shot dead by a sniper during her Veterans Day speech. Her assassin narrowly escapes the scene with his life, national security hot on his heels - or so it seems. Three months later, an elderly couple discover the body of a wounded man in a tree, wearing a parachute. The young man (Dorff) cannot remember the slightest thing about his own identity. The only clue is a tattoo on his neck, "XIII". Meanwhile, in the Whitehouse, government intelligence is still conducting the search for the President's killer. With the elections just weeks away, a confirmed suspect could swing the vote for the administration. Hours after XIII's location is picked up by covert intelligence, elite special ops forces are swarming the couple's house in Cape Fear. Running on adrenaline and instinct, XIII tactically takes out the soldiers one by one. On the run, clinging to one desperate clue after another, XIII begins to piece back his life, fragments of his memory r

Than kyou.

Today we honor the 25 million veterans

who have worn the uniform of

the United States of America.

I am especially thankful

to be back home

honoring two veterans

from my own family.

My father,

former Senator Henry Sheridan and,

of course, my brother Wally Sheridan,

Governor of this great state.

We observe Veteran's Day

on a special anniversary.

A day when war ended

and our nation was...

This morning I asked my Secretary

of Defence, Ellery Shipley,

to formulate a schedule

for the gradual withdrawal

of our troops from Afghanistan

and Iraq.

As Commander-in-Chief

it is my responsibility

to protect the protectors.

The men and women of the armed forces.

Our troops have served valiantly.

Now it is time to bring them home.

So on this Veterans' Day

let us give thanks to

all those men and women

who have fought to ensure our freedom.

May God bless them and their families.

May God bless

the United States of America.


The President is down.

Again, we are still

waiting for confirmation,

but it appears that a shot

or some shots were fired.

Secret Service has mobilized

and is taking her to safety.

He's coming down.

Did you get him?


A special meeting of Congress

has convened in Washington today...

...Congress... Intelligence...


Pronto, find it! That a boy.

Yeah, that's a good boy.

Let's get somebody up there.

Jones, what happened?

The op went dead.

I can see that. How?

We had a one-hour window

once the call came in.

I placed snipers on site,

birds in the sky.

Satellite surveillance indicated it

was a manageable distance.

But as the guy approached on

the water it all went south.

C4 charges blew the wheelhouse

and created a cover smoke.

We lost sight of our agent.

Before we could respond they opened fire.

There, there, there and there.

Four units each one hit.

They knew exactly

where we'd be positioned.

Sounds like they knew our protocol.

Got to be a former agent.

Our current.

The preliminary ballistics report.

These guys didn't shop the gun

department at Walmart.

Government issue.

Amos is presenting to

the President at nine.

Get a description for the Coast Guard.

Sir, I think it's too late.

By now they've swapped vessels

or gone ashore.

I didn't mean

a description of the boat.

I meant a description of our man.

We need to identify the body.

I think if they wanted him dead

they would have killed him right here.

We have to assume that he's still alive.


I know.

I'm fine.

We want action. We want action.

We want action.

After our preliminary examination

we ran a full sweep of the area.

We were able to trace the line of fire

back to this office building.

The shooter's perch was wiped clean.

No prints, no hair, no fibres, nothing.

Power to the building was cut.

Security cameras were disabled.

The shooter walked into the building

using a hacked security card.

His exit, however,

did not go quite as smoothly.

As you know,

there were two security guards

in the parking garage.

They engaged the shooter

and between the two guards

fourteen rounds were fired.

We only recovered twelve slugs.

That means the shooter

was probably hit twice.

However, a lack of blood evidence

also suggests that the scene

was sanitized.

So who did the mop up?

We don't know.

It doesn't appear that the shooter

had any accomplices

in the parking garage,

but he did kill two guards

who managed to escape.

Tire treads indicate that he exited by

the south side of the building.

We also found glass fragments

spread throughout the scene.
