Control: Terrorists have taken hostages in the village of Lamoura, Switzerland. Among them are several delegates to the current IMF conference in Geneva. Swiss security forces have sealed off the area in preparation for your arrival. Your mission is to liberate the IMF delegates.

Clark: Normally we'd leave something like this to the Swiss authorities, but the profile of the hostages is high enough that we've been called in. There were at least five IMF conference delegates present in the village when it was stormed. I say "were" because we don't know how many are left alive. The terrorists hit the local bank first, then rounded up the hostages when they realized they were pinned down. They've issued a few, but they haven't identified themselves. Something about this stinks, but figuring out what is Intel's job, not yours. Yours is to go in there, clear out the village and make sure both the delegates and the locals who've been taken hostage come out in one piece.

Sweeney: There's something odd about this operation. At first, the terrorists seemed unaware of the identity of their captives, as though they'd been planning to hit the town anyway and the presence of the IMF officials was a lucky accident. Apparently the delegates were taking a day's ski trip away from the conference in Geneva. They'd have been better off if they'd kept their minds on business. Still, there's something here that doesn't make any sense. There's certainly nothing else in Lamoura worth mounting an operation like this over.

Objectives: Rescue both hostages
