At one point Tony compares Kersey with John Walker Lindh, who is a turncoat citizen of the USA, whom a federal grand jury indicted on 10 charges related to his having collaborated with the Al Queda and the Taliban in Afghanistan, and who made a plea bargain in a federal court which called for his imprisonment for 20 years without parole. He's now behind bars at a federal maximum-security prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. See more »


When Gibbs is in interrogation, he moves two pictures depicting US Marines with his hands, so that the pictures are above the image of the deceased Marine - Michael Torres. Subsequently, the camera focuses on Capitain Joe Westcott, and then turns back to Gibbs. At this time, the two pictures of the Marines are not above the other one, but rather on the other side of Gibbs' folder. See more »
