    I get that part of it, I just figured that wouldn't be an "intellegence" matter. But I guess so. I'm used to the being refered to more in terms of terrorism and international espionage. Which I guess this is, just never saw it used in this context.

    Read this wiki page about the CIA and drug trafficking in various countries. It's pretty interesting, IMO. In any case, I don't think the story line in SOA is implausible. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_drug_trafficking

    Earlier in the season they established that Romeo's team were all former Mexican military. I guess they could be hired directly by the CIA, but as foreign nationals it doesn't seem likely to me.

    Yeah I figured it was based on something real... Sutter's stuff is hyper-dramatic but stuff like this is usually grounded in reality somewhere. Just thought it was weird cause I never associated CIA w/ drugs (I do now!)... This whole concept is pretty messed up when you think about it, even if it makes sense on some level.

    Yeah I didn't catch that. I should know better because this show is always giving out important information even when you don't know it, you really have to pay attention to it. I'm sure there were a ton of clues (like Romeo showing up during a shoot-out or the "hit men" trying to take Tara when they could have easily just popped a bullet in her with Jax being so far away. Plus the fact that Romeo and Luis kept referring to him as one person "he can't be recalled once the plan is in place, we can't contact him" etc, but then a van full of dudes rolls up).

    Parts...
    I don't know why he started to sit in his old chair. Plus he did look upset that Jax didn't want him there. The thing is that he resigned the position when he handed Clay his Sgt's patch. Why be upset when Jax appoints a new Right Hand? Maybe he thought no one would notice the missing patch?!

    You can pretty much bet he'll be right there for Clay once he's out of the hospital.

    It reminded me of the scene from The Godfather when Michael became Don. Very powerful.
