Retired Special Agent Jim McGee reviews being a member of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team (HRT), one of the world's most elite counter-terrorism teams. McGee provides a first-hand account of his participation in the HRT's first dynamic assault mission, which resulted in the successful hostage rescue of nine. In 1991, a violent group of Cuban inmates in the Federal Correctional Institution in Talladega, Alabama, overpowered their guards and took hostages. The inmates demanded that they not to be deported back to Cuba. The HRT was called in and the hostages were rescued unharmed. For their efforts, Jim and the other HRT members were awarded the FBI Medal of Meritorious Achievement. McGee wrote a book about his experience—Phase Line Green. It's available by contacting McGee directly.
