"U.S.D.D." (United States Department of Defense) is the third campaign mission in Call of Duty: Black Ops. It is similar to "The Coup" of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare because they are both mainly cinematic levels and presidents are involved, with pistols aimed at them. The mission takes place at the Pentagon on November 10, 1963 after Alex Mason escapes from Vorkuta.

1700 hours, November 10, 1963
The newly free Alex Mason has been turned over to Jason Hudson of the CIA, and summoned to the Pentagon. After touching down, Hudson and Mason meet Robert McNamara in a limousine convoy, which brings them to Pentagon offices. McNamara informs Mason that Dragovich poses a threat to national security, which Mason immediately deduces as meaning he must kill him.
Mason, Hudson and McNamara walk through the Pentagon offices, clearing four checkpoints. Mason tells his interrogators in the present that he felt like he was being watched, receiving the chilling response that the interrogators were in the Pentagon, watching him.
