A timed mission... Can't Post

Jack Bauer is issued a duffel bag of infiltration equipment (his PDA, link up to CTU HQ, Glock 21 (with suppressor), 15 full magazines of .45 ACP ammunition, one sniper rifle with 50 rounds, Kevlar vest, flashlight, 5 flash grenades, 5 fragmentation grenades, 5 smoke grenades, a tactical knife, rope, one bar of plastic explosive with detonator, a comm radio, his cell phone with unlimited battery, the ability never to have to use the bathroom ever, and free reign to say "damn it" at any time). He also gets one captured orc to interrogate (interrogation time takes away from Bauer's time limit).

He has a time limit of 24 hours to infiltrate Orthanc and destroy the gun powder Saruman is working on.

A team of 5 Dunedain rangers and one elf from Myrkwood are given full quivers, new swords, long knives, elven cloaks, rope, torches, mithril armor, prior knowledge of the layout of Orthanc and the surrounding area, a general idea of the number and types of forces contained within (includes a general idea of how they are deployed), and the knowledge of Saruman's secret weapon (gun powder). They too have 24 hours to infiltrate the tower and destroy the gun powder. They also get one orc to interrogate (the time is subtracted from their time limit).

For this fight it is assumed that Saruman will not be able to use the Palantir to see his enemies approaching and has not cast any protective spells on the building other than a warning on all the entrances to his chamber, and is not part of this mission unless summoned by his orcs. The gun powder is being held deep underground beneath Orthanc in the war mills. This mission takes place after the creation of Uruk-hai.

So who gets the job done in less time? Jack or the team of Rangers+Elf? This assumes that it does not take Jack exactly 24 hours to solve the problem due to network scheduling (hehe).

The only thing that beats the Army of the Dead is a department store clerk with a chainsaw hand and a double-barreled boomstick!
