- "You think America can't find you?"
- ― McGowan to Majid Sadiq
2013: Blacklist Attacks Edit
McGowan was present in the command center on the Anderson Airforce Base when multiple squads of Engineer members infiltrated, wearing U.S. military uniforms, and lead by their leader, Majid Sadiq. While much of the infiltration was recorded by one of the members, they were able to use stealth tactics to eliminate guards and officers with suppressed weapons. When McGowan's command room was breached by Majid Sadiq and his men, McGowan asked Sadiq, "You think America can't find you?" Sadiq told him that there was no need, and after shooting McGowan in the head, killing him, he said that The Engineers were coming to America. McGowan's death was recorded on camera by one of The Engineers and was included in the viral video The Engineers posted on the internet.
