I love 24 and have watched every episode that's shown, but I gotta say that the show is quickly becoming a soap opera, and the writers have jumped the shark. C'mon, does bluetooth REALLY have to be Jack's brother ? Why couldn't he just be part of the Illumanati, the secret group that runs the world ? Besides, Bluetooth guy was in part of the plan (as well as the father) to have a nuke blowup in L.A. Why would he and his family remain in the state, no less the city, in the timeframe that the nuke was to go off? If I knew that, me and my family would be at Disneyland in Orlando, on the other side of the country, or even on another continent.
Why would Hassad, a known terrorist, be transported to D.C., the nations capitol, even if he does have a written agreement with the president to help out ? Move him to the Midwest, or wherever, but not too close to where the President is.
If you had 5 nuclear bombs, why would you set them off all in one "area", ie California ? Spread them around the country. With all the contacts Fayed has, does he not know anyone outside the L.A. area ? Have all the muslim terrorists all moved to California, not anyone of the other 49 states ?
