On April 15th, 2004, Lomas and his group followed through with their threats by trespassing at a missile silo in North Dakota. After removing the solid concrete blocks at the silo, the group opened fire on federal investigators. Lomas then threatened to detonate the silo's nuclear warhead unless the Government confirmed the existence of aliens.

The American government was desperate to avoid another armed standoff with disgruntled militiamen and tasked Rainbow with infiltrating the silo to avoid getting directly involved. Before the operation, Rainbow picked up an encrypted high-frequency carrier signal. It was discovered that Lomas and his group using the standoff to buy time in order to broadcast sensitive details about the silo outside the United States. Rainbow was able to successfully dispatch all of the militia, including Lomas, and stop the data broadcast.
