Good morning, Mr. Briggs. Josef Varsh, Public Prosecutor and head of his countries secret police, is the most dangerous man in Eastern Europe. He heads the political faction which wants to heat up the Cold War. Opposed to him are those who favor co-existence lead by Anton Kudnov, the Deputy Premiere. Varsh now plans to stir up feeling against the United States by arresting and charging some innocent American with a serious crime, and then staging a propaganda show trial for the world. He plans to use this to gain absolute power for himself. Should Varsh succeed not only will the victim lose his freedom and possibly his life, but the international peace will be threatened. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to stop Varsh and so discredit him, that he will never again be a political threat. 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 recording will self destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Dan.
