The military, especially the SEAL teams, want to rescue Sandra and killĀ  the terrorists who are holding her hostage. The government, on the other hand, is worried about public image, the tentative foreign policy agreements, and re-election for the President.

One of their own, the first female helicopter pilot, is being held captive and tortured- and they are going to bring her back.
