The 2018 Hostage Crisis at the G-20 summit in New York was a terrorist attack that occurred on September 27, 2018. It was perpetrated by the Citizens Liberation Front (CLF), a terrorist group composed of CIA and FBI agents. The group orchestrated the hostage crisis to draw out AIC agents attending the summit. Towards the end of the crisis, the Islamic Front claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the United States government covered up the real story of the crisis.
Before the crisis erupted, a rogue faction of the CIA called the AIC had plans to gain access to intelligence drives, brought to the summit. Elaine Todd, the First Lady, contacted the members of the AIC, telling them to be present at the summit. However, another terrorist group, the Citizens Liberation Front, had secretly been investigating the rogue group. Once they heard that the First Lady was a member of the AIC, the CLF took control of the summit. Speaking in Swahili, they had Raina translate for them. They threatened to release a biological weapon if anyone tried to directly or indirectly attack them. Later, the CLF demanded that the President release hacker, Eric Boyer. He complied with their demands but the terrorist group later decides to execute the First Lady on national television. Sometime later, it was revealed that the CLF's main purpose of initiating the crisis, was to draw out AIC agents posing as hostages.
After the First Lady's execution, the CLF started to separate the hostages. They moved the majority to Federal Hall. The hostages were forced to put a collar on their neck. If they ran, then their collar would activate, killing them. The CLF repeatedly cycled out hostages which could have been disguised terrorists.
The CLF, growing impatient, finally decided to release 1,700 hostages in exchange for Eric Boyer. Miranda, a CLF member, and FBI agent Shelby Wyatt apprehended Boyer. During the exchange, most hostages escaped the area while the CLF captured Boyer. Refusing to decrypt the intelligence drives, Boyer committed suicide.
The remaining hostages, including the CIA recruits at The Farm, were escorted into one room. Taking orders from Nimah Amin, hidden CLF members were ordered to eavesdrop into conversations. Leigh Davis was publicly executed after her interrogation. Then, once Dayana mentioned that she visited Surubaya in Indonesia, the CLF separated Dayana and Raina, who was actually Nimah, a disguised CLF member.
Towards the end of the crisis, the CLF finally began to interrogate each hostage. If they answered AIC related questions, they were killed. However, Alex Parrish, who repeatedly sneaked into the hostage zone, decided that the interrogations should end. After successfully escaping with the remaining hostages, it was revealed that disguised CLF members posed as hostages also made their way out of the crisis zone.
Two weeks after the 2018 Hostage Crisis ended, President Claire Haas mentioned that there were eight collaborators, within the shadow, rogue group, that secretly had involvement with the AIC. As a result of Lydia's actions, the collaborators gained access to sensitive U.S intelligence. This information was vital to their goal of controlling certain areas within the government. As a response, President Haas and CIA director Matthew Keyes assembled a covert task force to remove the remaining threats that the AIC still posed to the public at the time. The primary mission of the task force was to uncover the conspiracy behind the nefarious agenda of the collaborators and expose their involvement in orchestrating the hostage crisis. Members of the task force included Alex Parrish, Ryan Booth, Nimah Amin, Dayana Mampasi, Shelby Wyatt, Harry Doyle and Owen Hall. The group was formerly led by Clay Haas who is a renowned political advisory strategist.
