    You're right. He had no compunction about killing innocents in the bunker.

    One more brainshower I had: Watch for a new plot thread as the CIA gets Brody to help bring down Nazzir.

    [Coming to this a bit late; didn't get a chance to watch the episode until last night]

    If we follow your idea and Saul goes directly to Estes then Saul would have to be extra extra paranoid to violate security by making a personal copy of the file.

    Now I'm sure the terrorists have plenty of copies (like tiams mentioned above). In fact thinking about it after the fact that might be why the Hezbollah guy had one instead of Nazir. That wasn't the primary, it was one of the distributed back-up copies to be used for leverage if necessary.

    But unless Brody is taken out of play or starts playing double-agent Nazir has no reason to expose him; so it shouldn't mater how many copies of the recorded Nazir stashed as deadman switches. (Well additional copies does make it slightly more likely for US or friendly forces to turn up another during some raid or other; but beyond that...) It's not getting put on the internet because it went straight from Brody through the pre-arranged dead-drop to Nazir's group. Nazir then presumably spread a limited number of copies to people he could trust to keep it secret until or unless it was needed. If Brody had gone through with the suicide bombing then it would have hit the net and Arab TV and no-one could have covered it up. But Nazir clearly didn't jump the gun; he was waiting to hear news of the attack before releasing Brody's message. (And Brody's own wording shows he was aware of that plan; it was worded like it would be released only after the fact that he was the bomber had been determined and publicized from the US side)

    You are incorrect, and you should be more careful about jumping to false conclusions about what I like or believe.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1676462/ As others said, it's available on Hulu. I find it as good or better than Homeland.

    Wow, that sounds like the makings of a threat. :rolleyes:

    I love this show, and it looks like Season 2 is going to be a good one. I couldn’t believe it when Brody sent the text message to Nazir. I wonder if May 1 is significant. I’m assuming is was a mayday signal?
