Mission Briefing Edit

Dan Briggs has been reassigned to the CIA OP Center in Langley, so Cinnamon Carter has to take the mission. She goes to the salon and ask the receptionist for Rita but is told she does not exist so she changes it to Olga which is the code word Dan gave her and the receptionist leads her into the back room. Cinnamon opens a desk and removes the envalope and the tape with the mission briefing.

Good morning, Miss Carter. This is Miklos Klaar the head of Cinfot Studios, one of the largest behind the Iron Curtain. Klaar has political ambitions. And the further them, has turned captured American newsreel footage into and atrocity film portraying our soldiers as wanton murderers. He's planning to show this to representatives of the world press. If this film is shown, it will damage the United States and our future piece talks. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, would be to stop Klaar, and in such a way that he can never repeat this technique. As always, should you or any member of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowlage of your actions. This message will self destruct in five seconds. Good luck.

The tape reaches the end of the reel and self destructs. Cinnamon then calls the agents in Dan's place.
