The target, a high-level leader in a terrorist organization that intelligence has indicated is plotting to execute a major attack in the United States, had no idea what was about to happen. High above, and several dozen kilometers to the east of his family’s compound, the red light next to the open ramp of a C-130 turns green and a team of SEALs dives out.

Their steerable, rectangular, chutes open almost immediately as the team members execute an almost perfect High Altitude/High Opening (HAHO) jump. If the target were to look up he might be able to make out the faint specks floating in the night air. Unfortunately for him he is asleep and totally unaware of what is about to happen to him.The team lands a few kilometers away from the objective.
