Storyline

On a sidewalk in Washington, DC, a displeased former fiancée stabs to death a Navy boatswain's mate first-class; Gibbs and company investigate; they quickly find the assailant nearby. While the gang work on-site, a different woman shouts at Ducky in Dari (a.k.a. Farsi), and, grabbing and using the murder weapon, stabs him through one hand and escapes into the crowd of spectators. A translator says that the woman accused Ducky of having killed her brother; Ducky readily agrees that he did so; Abby identifies the woman as an Afghan immigrant, who has now obtained refuge in the Afghan embassy. Ducky surrenders at the Afghan embassy to face charges for an incident while Ducky served in Afghanistan 30 years ago in the Royal Army Medical Corps. Gibbs obtains and uses information obtained from a CIA operative. Conversations at the embassy result in the release of Ducky and the withdrawal of charges. Written by DocRushing

Disappointed
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the first episodes in a long time I did not enjoy. Apparently, according to the storyline, you're allowed to stab people and get away with it - as long as you're an angry Muslim. This sends a message that is so wrong, it's mind boggling. Can you imagine if other groups in this country start adopting that policy? There are plenty of angry people that live here, of every conceivable background (including hate groups like the KKK and the Black Panthers). Should they be allowed to hurt others with impunity also, because they SUSPECT someone did something wrong??

The woman never apologized, never had charges filed against her - nothing. She simply got away with stabbing someone. I hope this series doesn't devolve into one of those pro terrorist, anti American "message shows" - that seems to be a trend right now.
