MOSSAD

The initials for the Israeli Secret Service. They possess ground plans on a scale of 1:1 for every airport terminal in the world and can unfurl them in the desert and rehearse the release of hostages held in terminal buildings. One of their most brilliant pieces of fakery happened at the time of the Mogadishu hijacking. The airport was covertly alerted by the Israelis that Idi Amin was returning unexpectedly. An identical plane to the one he would have used was flown in with a black actor dressed in authentic general's uniform. All the military at the airport were quickly gathered for a guard of honour. The actor and his accomplices drove past, the guard of honour saluted and were promptly gunned down. The terminal was successfully stormed.
