While negotiating a deal for weapons from a source inside Camp Pendleton, Adrian Tintfass accidentally came into contact with the source's superior, the notorious terrorist Zapata. This chance meeting led to a complex sting operation by CTU agents Jack Bauer and Ryan Chappelle to outwit and capture Zapata. (Chaos Theory)
Camp Pendleton was illicitly ordered by Eric Rayburn to begin an evacuation in light of the possible nuclear attack in Los Angeles. After learning about the evacuation from Sherry Palmer, President Palmer countermanded the request. Later, CTU tried to secure extra manpower from Camp Pendleton for the assault on Norton Airfield and a possible battle with the rogue Coral Snake team. ("Day 2: 1:00pm-2:00pm", "8:00pm-9:00pm")
CTU Los Angeles coordinated with two Cobra attack helicopters based at Camp Pendleton during the operation to eliminate Hamri Al-Assad. Homeland Security had Chloe O'Brian set up a channel to communicate with them, which Nadia Yassir authorized her to do. Just before 7:00am, CTU got the coordinates of Assad's safe house in Inglewood from Abu Fayed, and the two helicopters took off towards Los Angeles. ("Day 6: 6:00am-7:00am")
