Last month in Baghdad during an ambush of a convoy, one US Marine died, and six others sustained injuries, then a robbery of the convoy took $5M of US funds intended for local contractors doing reconstruction projects; a Jihadist group took credit; now a clue indicates the existence of a connection in the LA area; Callen and company investigate; G and Sam find the body of a staff sergeant and some suspicious cash, then they check out a hangar, where they find even more cash, just in time for some fireworks. Eric identifies a suspect on video footage, and G and Sam recognize him as as a mailman; Eric says that he's also something else. The team figure out the remaining plans of the bad guys, but they wish to grab the person or people on the inside, so they create and execute an elaborate ruse to smoke out their quarry; it works; they get the bad guys, the cash, and much more.
