The appearance of ROBERT DAVIS’s long thought dead Colombian uncle, a former FARC member, raises suspicions from ROBERT DAVIS’s brother, but his uncle is the only one who can identify the FARC leader. An elite team led by ROBERT DAVIS’ younger brother utilizes the “AMSAT” program to track Gilberto Rodriguez and rescue ROBERT DAVIS, his girlfriend, and her sister. Gilberto Rodriguez is then taken to a U.S. safe house to extract information about the FARC’s connection to Bin Laden’s network of terrorists. To Gilberto Rodriguez undeniable complete surprise, ROBERT DAVIS’s first question placed Gilberto Rodriguez at Bin Laden’s camp on that fateful night of September 9, 2001.
