Detectives Green and Fontana investigate the murder of seven people, three of whom were high school girls from a prestigious private school. The other four were drug dealers and when the police find that their boss was also killed, they start working their way up the line and find it goes to Qaadar Khaleel, an Afghan warlord who is an ally of the United States government. Khaleel tries to claim diplomatic immunity and when that fails, the defense tries to embarrass the Federal government into arranging for his client's release by suggesting they had, implicitly or explicitly, supported his drug activities.

A squad of killers from one drug gang wipe out some dealers at a drug house in Washington Heights and in the process kill three teenage girls who were there doing some recreational snorting. As these were Ivy League college bound young women that gets everybody upset.

It all traces back to the war in Afghanistan and wouldn't you know it one of our tribal allies who is in the heroin business is in town to supervise getting his product back. The young women were collateral damage in his war, a bit of blow-back we have to expect.

It was interesting to see how first our federal government first tried to cut a deal for Christopher Maher and then left him hung out to dry in court. Also interesting the way that Dennis Farina and Jesse Martin with some simple forensics tied the shooter to the crime scene.

The episode is a commentary on not our foreign policy per se, but on war in general. Until that's gotten rid of people and nations will find themselves with allies they're uncomfortable with at best.
