Uninformed writing
22 May 2019 | by www_yayaSee all my reviews

Yet another misrepresentation of issues that the writers simply don't understand. The West Wing has proven to be unable to discuss many global issues, especially in the Middle East. And this episode is no different. They're faced with an issue in Saudi Arabia that doesn't make any sense just to give the West Wing a dilemma to deal with. Anyone who knows KSA and the Middle East understands how uninformed the writing was when dealing with these issues.
