Kiefer immediately asks Hassan what File 33 is. Hastings is also calling the residence from CTU, wanting to know the same thing over the speakerphone. Kiefer and Dalia both press Hassan to spill, and after a long pause, Hassan orders Nabeel, "Show them." He repeats the order when Nabeel hesitates. While waiting for it to come up, he tells Dalia he'd do anything for Kayla, including giving his own life. "Then give them this file," Dalia insists. Nabeel soon has it ready on the laptop. Hassan types in a password, and there's File 33, up on both big screens. Ugh, it looks like a PDF. The terrorists aren't going to be happy about that. "Hastings, are you seeing this?" Kiefer asks. Hastings is. He says, "Mr. President, this file appears to contain operational details on all U.S. antinuclear defenses...including our radiological detection arrays." He wonders how Hassan got such classified material. "How do you think, Mr. Hastings?" Hassan asks bitterly. "For 20 years, your nation has threatened mine, with everything from economic sanctions to military attack! So we gathered intelligence and found weaknesses in your defenses. We did what any other country would do." Kiefer tell Hassan he can't let him hand it over to the bad guys. "We're talking about the lives of tens of thousands of people." Dalia cuts in to ask about her daughter's life. "With all due respect, madam, your family brought this threat to my country," Kiefer snaps. "We're doing the best we can." Not to mention the fact that if the dirty bomb does get through, it's ten to one Dalia's standing on ground zero.
