  • The CIA and MI-6 supposedly execute Operation Charybdis, which has the objective of neutralizing Alex Mason, Jason Hudson, and Grigori Weaver after all three fled to South Africa. They are seen as potential threats to national security (Jason Hudson and Grigori Weaver are considered a threat due to Alex Mason's mental status and the fact that Jason Hudson and Grigori Weaver fled with him). CIA analyst Ryan Jackson is adviser. MI-6 provides a SAS operator named Jonathan (last name redacted). Grigori Weaver's niece, Kristina is supposed to play a major role in the operation: seducing Alex Mason. The specifics of the operation itself, including its success or failure, are currently unknown (and likely classified). However, the events of Black Ops 2 clearly show Alex Mason and Jason Hudson are alive, for certain missions, in the 1980's, leading to the result that Operation Charybdis was not successful. The fate of Weaver is unknown, though, as well as his niece.
