The D.B. Cooper case is the only unsolved hijacking case in the nation. The FBI who were investigating this case for 45, have finally decided to end this hunt because “every time the F.B.I. assesses additional tips for the case, investigative resources and manpower are diverted from programs that more urgently need attention.” On November 24, 1971, a normal looking man carrying a black briefcase walked into Portland International Airport and bought a one-way ticket to Seattle,Washington (man actually paid for his ticket).

In 1952 the US got involved after Nicaragua solicited U.S. assistance to overthrow the Guatemalan leader, Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. President Truman authorized the shipment of weapons and money to anti-Arbenz groups.

The three most important are: the president’s search for closure, Rapp’s search for the assassins, and lastly Rapp’s search for his own identity. The first important search in Consent to Kill is the president’s search for closure before leaving office. This is supported by the president stating: “I have a vice president who is in over his head, I have a deeply flawed attorney general, a secretary of state who is more concerned with appeasing foreign governments than protecting our own long-term national security, and I have a new director of national intelligence that will probably throw party when he learns that I have Parkinson’s.
