I watched the ninth episode of 24: Live Another Day last night. If you haven’t watched it and intend to do so, please don’t read further!
I have problems with this episode.
The premise that the President of the United States not only negotiated with a terrorist but surrendered himself in atonement for a drone attack which accidentally killed civilians disturbs me.
The president’s additional reason for this sacrifice is even more troubling. He decides that having been recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s it is an appropriate sacrifice to make. Really? What does that say to other Alzheimer’s victims? And this is a person in the very early stages who would have access to the very best healthcare…gee what a role model.
