PG-13 | | Action, Crime, Thriller
A Secret Service agent is framed as the mole in an assassination attempt on the President. He must clear his name and foil another assassination attempt while on the run from a Secret Service Protective Intelligence Division agent.
The synopsis of this movie's source novel "The Sentinel" (2003) by Gerald Petievich on the author's personal website reads: "A White House Secret Service agent specializing in electronic surveillance has been blown away by a masked gunman. The Aryan Clan, a neo-Nazi group, has taken credit. Secret Service Special Agent Pete Garrison fears it's more than a warning shot delivered by extremists. His first lead is an informant who claims that the Aryans have positioned one of their own in the White House. But it's the second lead that carries the most shattering implications - a blackmailer who knows of Garrison's love affair with the First Lady. He has the photos to prove it: evidence that would frame Garrison with the perfect motive for murder. Garrison's last option: infiltrate the President's most powerful circles of defense . . . and outguess the killer's next move."

Agent Davies: No, but I did stay in the Holiday Inn Express.
Pete Garrison's national security adviser requests a list of personnel with "Q" clearances. Q clearances are granted strictly by the Department of Energy and are the equivalent to other agency's Top Secret clearance. Instead of dealing with encryption as the national security adviser mentions Q-cleared employees deal with nuclear power and weapon capabilities.
