Goofs

When Booth an Danny enter the FBI building they both flash their badges at security and then go direct to the elevator. During this time Danny has no FBI visitors badge on. This badge then appears on this lapel whilst in the elevator. The badge should have been present and in view from the point he went through security. See more »

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Did Carolyn give you all the information you needed on Ibrahim?
Angela Montenegro: Yeah, I hope so. I mean there is always possible the CIA is holding something back. I sound like Hodgings, huh?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well, in this case that would be prudent!

The source in the sludge
22 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I do wish TV shows which claim to be about Afghanistan would do a little research. The names of the Afghan girl and her brother were rather strange and even then, mispronounced, as was the city of Ghazni. The CIA guy and the Afghan, when Brennan and Booth came to the door, were speaking some language which did not sound at all like Dari or Pushtoo, the two main languages of Afghanistan, or any other language/dialect from that area. The girl talked about the education of women as though it was a totally strange concept in Afghanistan. In the 1970s many Afghan girls went to school and to the university. They dressed in European/American style and worked as doctors, nurses, teachers, secretaries, etc. there were female cabinet ministers. The country has been in turmoil since the Russian invasion. The Taliban took over after the vacuum left when the Russians pulled out and all the previous bands of freedom fighters went after each other. Then after 9/11 we invaded supposedly to get bin Laden who was hiding out there, but then we dropped the ball to go after imaginary weapons of mass destruction, which allowed the Taliban to build up again...the story is much longer and more complicated and I've gotten off the subject of the Bones episode....
