ERIC RAYBURN: Los Angeles. It gets worse. This bomb is going to go off today.  
PRESIDENT PALMER: How do we know this?
ERIC RAYBURN: {Shows photo on the screen} This suicide bomber is Mahmud Rashed Faheen. A terrorist who we believe has been involved with countless fundamentalist groups.
LYNNE: Is that the bombing in the west bank?
ERIC RAYBURN: Yes. Two days ago we were led to believe that the purpose of this bombing was for us to think Faheed was killed.
PRESIDENT PALMER: He wasn't?
ERIC RAYBURN: No.....{Shows another picture} This was taken five days ago outside a small airport in France. The man on the left Jason Park. We had him under surveillance. It happens to be that we caught the very much alive Faheen in the photo. When we grabbed Park we tried to extract everything we could out of him. About fifteen minutes ago he broke and confessed that for two years Faheen has been planning today's attack on Los Angeles.
LYNNE: Why didn't you pick up Faheen the same time as Park?
ERIC RAYBURN: This picture wasn't analyzed until after the two had separated. I've contacted defense, CIA, FBI Everything will be run through N.S.A. 
PRESIDENT PALMER: Who controls Faheen?
ERIC RAYBURN: A relatively new splinter group that goes by the name of Second Wave. 
PRESIDENT PALMER: Government affiliation?
ERIC RAYBURN: They are not recognized by any of the middle eastern states.
PRESIDENT PALMER: Get me their Prime Minister.

PRESIDENT PALMER: Then how do explain their camps inside your country?
PRIME MINISTER: There are no terrorist camps in my country.
PRESIDENT PALMER: Mr. Prime Minister I know two things. One, second wave is planning an attack on one of my cities today and two, your government supports second wave.
PRIME MINISTER: I would appreciate it if you stop using my people and my country as every threat leveled at the United States.
PRESIDENT PALMER: What I'm saying is not meant to be a threat just a statement of fact. If a bomb goes off on US soil today, I will have no choice but to respond.
PRIME MINISTER: This is an outrage. We are not planning to attack the United States.
PRESIDENT PALMER: Outrage or not if you care for the lives of your people, you better hear me loud and clear. Mr. Prime Minister, if a bomb goes off today, it will hurt us but it will destroy you.
