Good morning, Mr Briggs.

General Rio Dominguez, the dictator of Santa Costa, makes his headquarters in the Hotel Nacionale.

We've learnt that two nuclear warheads furnished to Santa Costa by an enemy power are contained in the hotel vault. Their use is imminent.

Mr Briggs, your mission, should you decide to accept it, would be to remove both nuclear devices from Santa Costa.

As always, you have carte blanche as to method and personnel.

But, of course, should you or any member of your lM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

As usual, this recording will decompose one minute after the breaking of the seal.
