Were you looking for US Embassy, the Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow level?

The United States Embassy to Dili is the headquarters of the American diplomatic mission to East Timor, a former Indonesian territory that was actively seeking its independence in 2006. It is a very important location, and serves as the setting for the first mission in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow.

HistoryEdit

During the independence movement in East Timor, the United States increased its efforts to establish East Timor as a sovereign and democratic state, with many of its efforts being directed from the Embassy situated in the capital city of Dili. During the events of 2006 Douglas Shetland, CEO of Displace International, was stationed at the Embassy trying to uncover evidence of Indonesian terrorist activities in the region. CIA Agent Ingrid Karlthson was also stationed here, posing as a desk jockey during her investigation of the worsening situation in the country.

On 28 March 2006, the Darah Dan Doa, an American trained, Indonesian guerrilla organization led by Suhadi Sadono, led a major assault on the U.S. Embassy as a statement against the American presence in East Timor. After attacking the Embassy with a suicide truck bombing, Sadono and his men stormed the flaming Embassy and immediately took people hostage, including Douglas Shetland and Ingrid Karlthson. During the siege, Sadono personally executed several hostages, whom he felt knew more than they should have about his campaign against the United States. Upon learning of the hostage crisis and the intelligence Shetland possessed, Third Echelon deployed Sam Fisher to recover the data before Sadono did. In the hour following Sam's escape, Delta Force arrived and liberated the Embassy from its captors, rescuing the surviving hostages, including Douglas. Unfortunately, Sadono had escaped and Ingrid Karlthson vanished. The attack on the Embassy prompted a massive buildup of American forces stationed in East Timor in an effort to quell Indonesian efforts to retake the country.

2006: Indonesian CrisisEdit

During the events of 2006 Douglas Shetland, CEO of Displace International, was stationed at the Embassy trying to uncover evidence of Indonesian terrorist activities in the region. CIA Agent Ingrid Karlthson was also stationed here, posing as a desk jockey during her investigation of the worsening situation in the country. On the 28th of March, 2006, the Darah Dan Doa, an American trained, Indonesian guerrilla organization led by Suhadi Sadono, led a major assault on the U.S. Embassy as a statement against the American presence in East Timor. After attacking the Embassy with a suicide truck bombing, Sadono and his men stormed the burning Embassy and immediately took people hostage, including Douglas Shetland and Ingrid Karlthson. During the siege, Sadono personally executed several hostages, whom he felt knew more than they should have about his campaign against the United States. Upon learning of the hostage crisis and the intelligence Shetland possessed, Third Echelon deployed Sam Fisher to recover the data before Sadono did.

Upon arriving in the shantytowns surrounding the embassy, Sam Fisher took one of Sadono's lieutenants hostage to learn more about the Darah Dan Doa's activities inside the embassy. During this interrogation, he also received vague intelligence regarding a person of special interest aiding Sadono's attack, someone believed to have hailed from the United States. Upon infiltrating the embassy grounds, Fisher freed Douglas Shetland and after being debriefed was entrusted with the intelligence Shetland had acquired on the Darah Dan Doa's activities. Seeking a translator, Third Echelon turned to Ingrid Karlthson, who was known to still be being held hostage inside the embassy. Unable to risk alarming the guerrillas, Fisher maneuvered around the militants and eventually reached the courtyard. A sniper armed with night vision was active in the tower overlooking the grounds, forcing Fisher to cross over in the open spotlight to avoid detection. After disarming the sniper, Fisher met Karlthson in the tower where she translated the intel, indicating someone close to Sadono preparing for a major attack somewhere in Paris, France. With this, Third Echelon decided to further pursue answers there.

Eventually, the CIA and Third Echelon received confirmation that Delta Force was being deployed to retake the embassy by force, allowing Fisher to utilize lethal force as he fled the embassy grounds for extraction on the riverfront. After deactivating the spotlights overlooking his route and neutralizing the guards, Fisher fled the scene aboard the Osprey.

The U.S. Delta Force eventually recaptured the embassy, with all hostages save for Ingrid Karlthson fully accounted for including Douglas Shetland. However, Suhadi Sadono had evaded capture, and would escalate his anti-Western campaign as the U.S. reinforced its station in East Timor in response to the attack.

LayoutEdit

The embassy is surrounded by a wall that is protected by armed personnel at all times, with a series of security cameras installed all around the perimeter. There are two main buildings in the embassy, with the main building housing all essential offices and living quarters for the residing diplomatic personnel, and a large tower that oversees the grounds separated by a large courtyard. Spotlights are set up around the courtyard as well to help security oversee the area at night.
