Mission Briefing Edit
Dan Briggs goes to the house of a pigeon keeper who is actually another IMF agent she hands him a tape and he goes over to the swing and puts it in the tape recorder and plays the message.
Good morning Mr. Briggs. Anastas Poltroni head of the International Narcotics Syndicate, now resides as Ted Carson in a country with which we have no extradition treaty. Your mission should you decide to accept it, would be to get Poltroni out of that country so that he may be legally arrested and brought back to the United States to face trial. Unfortunately, kidnapping has been ruled out as to embarrassing politicallly. As always, should you or any member of your IMF force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Please dispose of this recording by the nearest means. Good luck, Dan.
Dan removes the tape for the tape recorder and toss it in the incinerator as always with any object given to the IMF it self-destructs.
