Did You Know?


Terrorists would have never been able to recieve or use the playbook from the nuclear football, any time that the presidents convoy, air force one, or the secretary of defense is either compromised or killed the nuclear launch codes are immediately changed in less than an hour with a 6bit cypher code generating new nuclear launch codes in seconds. So there is no way the nuclear football would been able to be used or accessed. See more »


Since the nuclear football is a very critical and crucial possession of the government, CTU should've have sent more agents and a tactical team to assist in its recovery. See more »


Bill Buchanan: [Talking privately] I've noticed a little hostility on your part, if it's about me and Michelle.
Tony Almeida: It's not my business, as far as the hostility goes, I can promise you it's over with.
Bill Buchanan: Whatever you say, one more thing: I think the world of Michelle, I love working with her. Outside work we never got off ground. She never said why but it didn't take a genius to figure it out. She cared about you and she still does.

Get That Ball! Get That Ball!!
29 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The "football" is the thing on Air Force 1 that contains everything about the U.S. nuclear capabilities. Marwan has escaped again as the plane has been shot down. The President is in critical condition, so Vice President Logan is sworn in. He's one of those guys who liked the title when he didn't have to do anything, but now he is in charge. There is a long hunt for a couple of young people who have found the football in some wreckage. Our buddy Marwan is right there, honing in on it. Very exciting conclusion which opens a whole new chapter.
