A stealth fighter is shot down over Iraq, leading to Bartlet ordering a military rescue as Toby worries about his brother trapped on a space shuttle orbiting the Earth. CJ deals with the ramifications of misleading the press about the rescue as the staff prepares for a town hall meeting that night. The town hall meeting goes well until the President leaves...and shots ring out. Written by
Did You Know?
When the F-117 pilot is rescued in Iraq, President Bartlet is told he is safe and on his way to Tel Aviv, Israel. An American military member under those circumstances would have either been taken to a U.S. military location in the region, either a base or a U.S. Navy ship. If he had been evacuated to Israel, he would not have gone to Tel Aviv but to Haifa, which is Israel's largest port and (unlike TA) often hosts U.S. vessels. See more

Oh, sir, I think we both know from experience that's not true.
