Like an onion...
13 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I found that this episode had several different layers, which really worked for the show. Yes they talk about terrorism again, but isn't it still a hot subject, or are we supposed to just forget all about it because it hasn't happened in America for a few years? Saying they've done terrorism episodes in the past before, is like saying "well they've done episodes about murder before, so they should move on to something else".

Considering they had the one side featuring the Islamic terrorists, and the other featuring a middle eastern kid who was avidly pro America, I'm not sure why the other commenter mentioned propaganda so much, maybe he should look up the meaning of the word.
