- "The strong spirit of international cooperation as exemplified by this gathering is precisely the sort of thing that can overcome the urge toward senseless violence and terrorism."
— Lord Nigel Cameron
In 2004, Nigel Cameron was the acting United Nations Secretary-General. He mediated the current round of conflicts between the American and mainland Chinese governments, trying to maintain peaceful relations. His efforts kept a bad situation from getting worse and likely prevent another Cold War. On August 11th, Cameron arrived at his hotel in Milan, Italy. He was set to be a keynote speaker at the International Culinary Arts Conference. Prior to leaving his hotel for the conference, however, he was taken hostage by David Newcastle and his terrorist organization along with several hotel staff.
Rainbow was able to rescue Cameron and the other hostages without incident. Cameron spoke to the press immediately after his rescue, praising those who saved him and expressing sympathies for the families of the four local police officers who were killed in the incident. He also denied rumors that the conference would be cancelled. During his debriefing afterwards, Cameron confirmed that Newcastle had taken part in his kidnapping. Additionally, he informed Rainbow that he had overheard details of the terrorist's intention to capture American athletes during the 2004 Summer Games in Athens, Greece. This vital piece of information allowed Rainbow to warn Olympic security and stage an ambush.
