Storyline

A DEA raid in Virginia 'accidentally' finds an Al Qaeda-type chemical bomb, presumably the work of Jind Allah and his Omega cell. Give her training and Middle Eastern experience, including speaking fluent Arabic, Hotch convinces Jason to take newcomer Emily Prentiss along for the interrogation in Gitmo (Guantanamo base, on Cuba). Gideon uses no further torture but Muslim-friendly reasoning, even invoking the Quran. Info makes a SWAT team find anthrax but lose a man at a second site; they learn his true identity is Egyptian: imam Jamal Abaza, who turned Jihad after his son Amir's death and set up a US MIS cell recruiting home-grown 'second choice' terrorists, who plan a bombing soon; Gideon tricks him...

Interviewing the prisoner at GITMO
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The statement made by Gideon: You have perverted your faith to justify killing millions of people.

I'm interested to know Mr. Patinkin's thoughts while doing that scene. Apart from doing his job as an actor, did that statement of Gideon's ring true to Mr. Patinkin? He is such a great actor, one cannot read his face to determine, or rather, have a glance to his personal character or beliefs.

The interviewing scenes were riveting, and this particular one, when Gideon's statement was made, actually became the very crux of the story. It also reflected the very crux of what has been happening in real life. A perversion of faith.

Can this web page tell me Mr. Patinkin's thoughts of this subject?
