When Professor Lawson answered the knock on his home's front door, the two Arab looking men asked if he was Reid Lawson. He agreed, of course, because he was. After they quickly kidnapped him and took him away for interrogation, they kept asking him the same question but were unhappy his answer never changed. Even after taking him across the Atlantic to Paris for more questioning, they were certain he was a highly dangerous CIA spy. Lawson knew they were terribly wrong. Except for the memories of events that never happened which started to return to him.
