What do you do with the drunk general on level 8 in Splinter Cell?

Just run up behind him and force him to use the computer. ==Read below for the rest of the mission:== Once that's done, shoot the bulb to hide the bodies, and exit through the double doors. You'll witness an explosion but don't worry, it won't hurt you. From now on just follow the linear path, avoiding the fires and opening the doors. Roll when it looks like the fire will harm you. Eventually you will come to see a window in a stairset. Slide it open and fall down. You'll see your escape aircraft. Approach it to end the mission.
