Operation Desert StormEdit
- Main article: Operation Desert Storm
During the early 1990s, the United States was engaged in a conflict known as Desert Storm, which saw heavy combat against the Iraqi military. During the mission, Frank Hensley was captured by enemy forces and taken to Baghdad. Following Hensley's attempts to start an influenza pandemic in New York City, Jack Bauer speculated that Hensley had been killed by agents of 999, Iraq's most secret special forces outfit, and replaced with an impostor. (Operation Hell Gate)
Immediately after Desert Storm, Curtis Manning was stationed in Iraq as commander of the 32nd Support Group, a Special Forces battalion. The unit was ambushed and taken captive, except for Curtis, and its members were executed on video by members of Hamri Al-Assad's terrorist organization. ("Day 6: 9:00am-10:00am")
During the events of The Rookie: "Extraction," the President of the United States was planning a trip to Baghdad. The White House had called it a "big step", and a helicopter was waiting for the President to board it. (The Rookie · "Extraction")
Before joining CTU New York, Cole Ortiz served in a Marine unit in Fallujah, one of Iraq's cities. Jason Pillar revealed to him that he had also served, in the city of Baqubah. ("Day 8: 9:00pm-10:00pm", "12:00pm-1:00pm")
