Curtis is ;isted as "deceased" on the official 24 site.
Fayad got away to the safe house.
Another moral: call the police when criminals are holding people hostage. They could have gone to the pick up site and dealt with things from there. Mom knew best.Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 17.01.2007 @ 19:42
The freely-elected government of Iraq has ASKED America and the coalitition to stay until they can handle things on their own.
The insurgents may believe they're the "good guys," but they're trying to overthrow a fragile democratic (or at least trying to be) administration.
True Iraqis aren't trying to kill us; the enemies of freedom are.Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 20.10.2006 @ 15:34
Please let us officially profile.
Note that even these false alarms have involved young men of Middle Eastern appearance.
As you point out, even creating fear and distrust achieves terrorism's goals.

Our wonderful language includes a verb mood called the subjunctive for "conditions contary to fact." Senator Kerry should have said, "If I WERE president..." This is crucial because, thanks be to God, this is a condition contrary to fact.Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 24.07.2006 @ 08:43
Ysterday my 10 year old son read an article on this in our local paper.
At dinner he said, "Mom, thank goodness President Bush won the election. This Kerry guy is against the war."
9/11 PROFOUNDLY affected my son. He has to read the paper as soon as it comes to check our progress in Iraq. I have to reassure him that we're winning (how I have the MSM that makes it necessary for me to do that).
When I was a kid, we played cowboys and Indians or Civil War (Rebels vs. Yankees). My kids play terrorits vs. counterterrorists.
How I loathe Islamists.Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 15.06.2006 @ 10:30
Rick, you've created a moral/ethica; puzzle for me.
I don't remember the shooting of Palmer's assassin; I thought Jack shot him in pursuit.
As for Henderson, he did "shoot" Jack, knowing the gun was not loaded. In a perfect world, Jack would have arrested Henderson and turned him over to the courts, but Jack know Henderson's guilt is beyond dount and skips ahead to execution. I don't quite see it as fitting the definition of murder. If Henderson had willingly surrender to Jack on the sub and then Jack shot him, I would have agreed with you, but as it is, I do think that Jack can still work within CTS.
Remember the killing of the guy in Season two ("I'll need a hacksaw")? Now that was murder, I'll grant you. In Jack's world, the ends--protecting America--justify all means.
Goodness, I love this show!Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 25.05.2006 @ 16:43
My great-great-grandparents' farm was a stop on the Underground Railroad. My ancestors moved from slave-owning states (though none ever owned slaves) to free states before the War, and several members of my family (although none in my direct line, as they were either too old or too young) enlised in the GAR..
Do I get to be exempt?Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 10.05.2006 @ 19:58
President Bush knows when to hold 'em. I think he's been playing this out so that the whole truth and all his explanations/defence of his actions comes out in September. If he peaks too soon, it's all forgotten or new accusations arise.
Did everyone also notice that it was just earlier this week that Karl Rove's job description was revised? It seems to me that his work was done...Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 22.04.2006 @ 10:16
I've often reflected that I'm so grateful that Holy Communion is a commemoration of the Last Supper and not the miracle of the loaves and fishes. I can't imagine nibbling trout early in the morning...Comment Posted By goddessoftheclassroom On 20.04.2006 @ 16:16
