In present day of 2008, the American war in the Middle Eastern country of Talibstan has taken U.S. casualties to the thousand mark. At the same time, rumor persist of American soldiers being killed by a "super-insurgent" who harnesses nuclear powers, and this matter greatly worries the U.S. President.
The war in Talibstan causes great anxiety for bar owner Max Keane. A child of the sixties and a pacifist, he talks about his problem to his psychiatrist, Dr. Freeman, who tells that his problem over Talibstan is causing him to have panic attacks. Hearing this, Max asks him if this also accounts for his erectile dysfunction as he has sexual intercourse with his wife Cindy three times a day. Freeman is taken aback by this and assures him that it is alright before firmly telling Max to stop worrying about the war in Talibstan.
At the White House, the President is granted audience by CIA Agent Stella Blake, who is assigned to the investigation in Talibstan. He wants her to find out what is happening there.
Somewhere in Siberia, at Gulag 15/10, a prisoner named Vladimir Korovin seems to know what is happening in Talibstan.
In Talibstan, a U.S. military detachment discovers an old Soviet facility while scouting for insurgents. Two soldiers enter the facility and find a woman encased inside a container. They then feel a large shaking above ground, and immediately know what it is: the "Talibstan Terror." A man appears as a Soviet-caped army major and had just killed the detachment above ground with his powers.
In the Caribbean, Agent Blake meets with Agent McCoy, who had requested her as an individual who can help her investigation. Stating that there is a file at CIA headquarters marked "Kryptos", purportingly containing information on James Sanborn, the creator of the said statue. On the back of the file is another file in codes, which McCoy tells Blake in decoding it in order to receive her help.
At Max's home/bar, he is visited by Blake and another CIA agent who needs his help. Blake explains that what she is going to tell him is hard to believe-there was a secret war going on.

Instead, they are found by American troops of the 2nd Armored Division who are given orders to recover classified German projects. Richter gives it to the leader of the soldiers in order to safeguard it from the Russians as it will grow up to be the "German hero".
