Mission Briefing Edit

Dan goes to the arcade and steps into the photo booth like he did in The Carriers and pulls the shade over himself. He inserts a coin into the machine and opens up the cabinet. Inside is the tape recorder with the briefing and an envelope containing photos of the mission targets. Dan plays the tape and the mission briefing begins.

Good morning, Mr. Briggs. The man your looking at is Ferenc Larya, the Prime Minister of Svardia, who has long fought to establish democracy and freedom for his people. Larya is now gravely ill and hasn't long to live. He has groomed Deputy Premier Milos Pavel to succeed him and carry on his policies. We know, however, that once in power, Pavel would set up a dictatorship and then purge the country of all opposition. But Larya will not hear anything against Pavel. Your mission, if you decide to accept it, is to keep Pavel from becoming Prime Minister. 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 10 seconds. Good luck, Dan.

Dan closes the cabinet and 10 seconds later the tape self destructs.
