Agent Masden and Agent Smith were personally selected among all the available Secret Service agents by Ethan Kanin as highly trustworthy. Masden (disguised as Ule Matobo) was driven by Smith to meet with Iké Dubaku's men in order to buy time for the rescue of Henry Taylor. The agents went to the east lot of the Stanswick Power Plant and remained in the car when ordered to exit. Bill Buchanan told them to retreat, but Dubaku ordered his lieutenant to attack the car. Masden and Smith were killed when their car exploded from a rocket strike.
