Here’s the “Traitor” plotline (source):

When strait-arrow FBI agent Roy Clayton (Guy Pearce) heads up the investigation into a dangerous international conspiracy, all clues seem to lead back to former U.S. special operations officer Samir Horn (Don Cheadle).

A mysterious figure with a web of connections to terrorist organizations, Horn has a knack for emerging on the scene just as a major operation goes down. The task force links Horn to a prison break in Yemen, a bombing in Nice and a raid in London, but a tangle of contradictory evidence emerges.

This forces Clayton to question whether his quarry is a disaffected former military operative or something much more complicated.

Obsessed with discovering the truth, Clayton tracks Horn across the globe as the elusive ex-soldier burrows deeper and deeper into a world of shadows and intrigue.

Last dishonest thing I did

stole Kryptonite and killed Superman, blaming it all on Lex
(I don’t think it is illegal to kill extraterrestrials, but not really honest.)
