Jim picks up his briefing at the back of a bowling alley and is informed that Father Paolo Dominguin has been leading a democratic revolution in his country. Far eastern enemies are taking over the moment, using Carlos Martillo, a local insurgent. The legendary international revolutionary, Juan Acero, is assisting and they plan to murder Dominguin as soon as they discredit Dominguin and kill him without making him a martyr...Read the full recap
Commandante Juan Acero: We are not to murder the priest.
Major Carlos Martillo: The priest is going to commit suicide. We will be blameless.
Commandante Juan Acero: Oh I see. The priest, a Catholic priest to whom suicide is a guarantee to Hell, will kill himself in our jail cell, under our guard and we will be blameless. Such brilliance, such subtlety. Martillo, you are a credit to the revolution. You are also a fool.
Jim: Releasing Father Dominguin to us would be a humanitarian gesture the whole world would applaud.
Commandante Juan Acero: You make good sense, Mr Slater. Public relations, the Americans call it, don't they? And good public relations could be one of the most potent weapons in our arsenal.
Commandante Juan Acero: Have you ever noticed, Ortiz, how American Intelligence gravitates toward religious covers? It stems from the American belief that God is one of them. Therefore they feel no compunction about using him.
