Morrison launches Marwan's nuclear missile from Iowa

Robert Morrison and Sabir Ardakani, terrorists funded by Habib Marwan, launched a nuclear weapon at Los Angeles from a remote area in Iowa. The staff of CTU Los Angeles was able to view the rocket setup live from a feed found on Yassir's computer, but were helpless to stop the launch. The missile was intercepted over Los Angeles shortly after its launch.

Background information and notes[]

  • Although the terrorists are supposedly in the mountains of Iowa, there are no mountains anywhere in Iowa. There are, however, low rugged hill areas located throughout the state.
