May 23rd, 2001, (to be reported to SC session on May 23rd)
A group of 15 heavily armed terrorists take 31 children hostage and occupy a hotel evacuated a week earlier for "supposed" adjustments. This hotel is located at one of the major Disneyland Paris, (DP), resort sites. The sixty-two parents have accounted for their children being of the following nationalities: 15 Americans, 7 French, 3 Russians, 2 Lebanese, 2 Chinese, 1 Yemeni, and 1 British.
All the kingdoms, (regions), of DP have been cleared of civilians and civilian personnel. No identification of the terrorists has been established, and no updates on the conditions of the children have been related.
French authorities, in cooperation with security personnel in DP manage to establish intercom/telephone contact and fax connection with the terrorists. The authorities use thermo-sensitive indicator devices to account for the actual presence of 17 male terrorists.
Terrorists declare their presence; and the authorities are instructed to correspond with the leader, codenamed One. Terrorists still give no demands or updates on the conditions of the young hostages. The origin of the terrorists, their objectives, and their plan of action are yet to be determined.
Terrorists fax list of preliminary demands:
a) A helicopter large enough to hold 50 passengers.
b) Safe access to all DP facilities, (control centers, communications centers, and even restaurants); this is to be carried out, (according to the terrorists), by fully evacuating DP of all personnel, including the DP security and authorities
Terrorists warn that, if these 2 demands are not met within a half hour, then a child will be killed at random every 2 hours, starting with the French children.
c) Safe access to Paris International Airport, (PIA), via the chopper.
d) A France Airlines Boeing 747 to be ready with no personnel aboard except the pilot and the copilot, who are to remain in the cockpit, unaware of the destination, which will be announced upon take-off.
The French government, finding itself in a desperate situation, carries out the demands of the terrorists, who "temporarily" take back their threats.
PIA has been fully evacuated; and all flights to and from PIA have been canceled.
Paris International Airport
Chopper arrives at airport, and French pilot added to the deaths section of French newspapers to be issued the following day. The terrorists do not lend any attention at all to the inconspicuous security cameras literally found everywhere.
Boarding of plane begins. There are only 16 terrorists visible on security cameras. Mr. One sends 4 terrorists to investigate the situation.
The 4 sent terrorists return with the bodies of 2 Americans, (later identified as ex-SEALS-men, who retired from the US Marine Corps less than 18 months ago). They also accompany the body of the 17th terrorist.
Mr. One gives order to kill following children: 3 Americans, and 1 French. 12 Americans, 6 French, 3 Russians, 2 Lebanese, 2 Chinese, 1 Yemeni, and 1 British remain.
Plane takes off to unknown destination.
Destination determined to be somewhere in Mid-Western Russia, presumably Moscow, (judging by the direction the Boeing 747 is headed and by the calculated liters of fuel left).
May 23rd, 2001, (to be reported to SC session on May 24th)
After flying through the airspaces of Switzerland, Austria, and Hungary, and during its flight through the airspace of the Ukraine, (the governments of which were informed of the situation by the French government), the plane approaches the Mid-Western border of the Russian Federation. Despite being informed of the situation, the Russian government is fully aware that Moscow will be the end of the line, and little disagreement is present amongst Russian military leaders of the possibility of a conspiracy, or some kind of setup. The Russians place all of their military bases in the Western half of Russia on RED ALERT.
The plane is now just North of Voronezh, which is a Russian city South West of Moscow.
A very old and non-modernized Russian military base just South of the city Nizhny Novgorod launches a type C-13 Ballistic Missile aimed at the plane.
It becomes evident that the base just South of Nizhny Novgorod really is old and receives much less maintenance than it needs; for the Russians find out that the missile has been launched two minutes too late, and is now heading towards the civilianized city Voronezh.
The missile headed for Voronezh is stopped by another anti-ballistic missile, and now the whole world knows that the Russian Federation, and not only the US, has the technology of Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense…
Speculations on how Russia came to possess such technology revolved around one supposition: the presence of American spies of Russian origin in US military corporations and bases.
