I'm pretty certain that Sean is a red herring. Yes, he's doing a lot of suspicious stuff, but didn't he arrange for his wife's plane to move to the head of the line? And let's assume that because his wife's plane was moved ahead the Congressman's plane was still in the sky when Dubako played his trick, there will be an investigation. Sean's little game will be discovered. And he'll look guilty as sin, but guilty of the wrong crime.Comment Posted By soccer dad On 13.02.2009 @ 09:22
President Taylor is a Republican isn't she?
I assume that Wayne Palmer, like his brother, is/was a Democrat. So his Vice-President and successor, Noah Daniels is also a Democrat. And since Taylor apparently beat Daniels in a general election, she would be a Republican.Comment Posted By soccer dad On 28.01.2009 @ 14:01
I was going to mention that Ryan Chappelle was killed 7 AM Season 3, but I see that someone beat me to the punch.
The best conversation this week was between Walker and Moss. He's criticizing her for torture and she's saying that she got accurate info. (We know that, she doesn't yet.)
The anti-torture folks say you can't do it, besides it isn't effective. But, in this instance, it was effective. Of course it's fiction. But I know Israel claims that they've used coercive techniques successfully in cases of "ticking time bombs." By saying that coercive methods never work, the anti-torture crowd are saying that there's no choice. In truth, there probably is a choice, but they don't want to admit it. Their position that you let 10 or 100 or even 1000 (or more) die, rather than torture a terror suspect can't be very popular. But that's the choice they have to defend. And they won't.
I think you wrote that Sam is ticketed for the morgue because she's got black hair. I don't think that the murder suicide will be successful. Something about that subplot says: botch.Comment Posted By soccer dad On 21.01.2009 @ 12:23
