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...

The writer
23 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Curious to me the first review was so hung up on Mandy P. - the lead actor. (He did do an excellent job.) What's more interesting is this is the first script from one of the real BAU FBI types approached when developing the show. He had since gone on to being a consultant, writer, etc for this and similar shows (not sure his current status - nor do i care).

The difference between the CIA and FBI approach has been roundly reported over the years of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Gitmo.

This is an unvarnished thinly/none-veiled point of view from the FBI. What Mandy thinks is rather irrelevant.
