After engaging in a firefight with the police, she escaped and met with Vassily. She was sent to kill the Russian President and at a meeting, launched charges beneath the president and shot him at point blank range. She was taken captive and her partner, Ted Winters, screamed at her. The Russians broke her out and she went to their base. Her husband however was shot and killed and she killed Vassily as well as other Russians. She met up with a fellow member and they both disguised themself as federal agents and waited for the President to pass through the building, (The Pentagon.).
Her partner shot at the president and used bombs strapped to his chest to kill several guards. The President was sent to the bunker with Ted Winters and several other Federal agents. Ted shot many of the guards and told the president he was the Russian agent and wanted the nuclear launch code to send missiles to the Middle East. Salt came to try and help, but Winters saw on the tv, that the Russian President was alive and was in a state of paralysis due to spider posion in the bullets. The two engaged in a fight. Salt stopped him and stopped the launch. When the other federal agents came to rescue the president, Winters claimed that Salt started the launch and they arrested her.
Salt killed Winters and was sent to a helicopter with the head of the CIA. She convinced him she was innocent and escaped.
