Day 1 Edit

The three attacks of Day 1 were all orchestrated as part of an attempt on the life of Senator David Palmer. The masterminds behind the attacks were Andre and Victor Drazen, who wanted revenge on Palmer and Jack Bauer for an operation two years before that ended up killing Victor's wife and daughter.

Their intention was to lead the US into a war with the Middle East thus raising the prices of oil, and subsequently their profits.

However, when terrorist Vladimir Bierko found out about their plan, he decided to use the gas on American soil.

Day 6 Edit

The initial attacks on Day 6 were the culmination of a chain of attacks that terrorist Abu Fayed had begun 11 weeks earlier against the United States. The attempt on Wayne Palmer was planned by Reed Pollock and Bruce Carson, who strongly believed that Palmer was deeply misguided for his plan to negotiate with Hamri Al-Assad and too weak in the face of Fayed's wave of terror.

Day 7 Edit

The early attacks of Day 7 were orchestrated by Iké Dubaku with the intention of coercing President Allison Taylor into aborting an American invasion into his country of Sangala. When he failed, Benjamin Juma himself decided to siege the White House. After this was thwarted, Juma's business ally, Jonas Hodges, threatened to attack the US with a lethal pathogen if the President didn't favor Starkwood's business in the defense of the country. Alan Wilson and the Prion variant cabal emerged later with the remains of the pathogen as a threat to United States and its people.

Day 8 Edit

The attacks during Day 8 were thought to be orchestrated by a Kamistan splinter cell led by Samir Mehran working within the US. Their intention was to either kill President Omar Hassan or force him to back out of a peace treaty with the United States. It was later revealed that the whole scheme was devised by the Russian government, including President Yuri Suvarov, to prevent the treaty negotiations.

Day 9 Edit

Nearly all the attacks during Live Another Day were orchestrated directly or indirectly by Margot Al-Harazi, who wished to kill US President James Heller as revenge for his role in killing her husband and several of their friends. However, it subsequently transpired that the drone override module that Al-Harazi used for her attacks had been originally commissioned by Cheng Zhi, who was working independently of her and wished to start a war between the US and China.

Day 3 Edit

Day 4 Edit

  • During Day 4, executives at McLennen-Forster detonated an Electromagnetic pulse bomb to prevent CTU from recovering incriminating information from their computers. The EMP caused a CTU helicopter to crash in the area and triggered a series of riots in downtown LA.

Day 6 Edit

  • Abu Fayed orchestrated several terrorist attacks during the 11 weeks prior to Day 6. The reported fatalities of these attacks totalled 900.
  • Fayed armed a second suitcase nuke, but Jack and CTU got to it in time and disarmed it. The nuke was likely armed in order to distract Jack rather than being an actual terrorist attack, as Fayed himself would almost certainly have been killed by the detonation had Jack failed to disarm it.
