Separate film and novel articles Edit
I think the film and novel continuities don't really mesh well in one article. Instead Treadstone should be a film article and Treadstone71 should be a novel article -- 126.96.36.199 10:18, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
Treadstone operatives Edit
Re Treadstone, to quote: "It recruited only U.S. Service members to turn them into nearly superhuman assassins"
If using van Lustbader's books ~ Arkadin was Russian and as a favour to a Russian friend, Conklin (within Treadstone) trained Arkadin first. However, Arkadin left Treadstone and returned to Russia which was suggestively a dissappointment to Conklin (unconfirmed by Conklin pre his death) and the reason for Bourne. In later books, Willard pits Bourne and Arkadin against each other to see whose skill set is the better. Other Treadstone operatives were killed in the 2nd or 3rd novel of Ludlum's when Treadstone was being shut down.
