Storyline

Bartlet and Leo debate on how to deal with the impending visit of the Qumari Defense Minister, whom U.S. intelligence officers have conclusively linked to terrorists. Sam dismisses an ingenious idea to trap Republican presidential opponent Robert Ritchie in an unsavory position over the Everglades, but comes around after talking to Toby. C.J. begins to develop a relationship with Secret Service agent assigned to her, Simon Donovan. Josh and Amy are locked into a battle over a welfare reform bill, whose outcome will cost one of them their job. Written by timdalton007

Trivia

Originally, Jessica Yu was set to direct 'We Killed Yamamoto,' however Thomas Schlamme, anticipating a late delivery of the script before production and thus less preparation, offered to take her place instead, and reschedule her directing for the next season. Yu accepted and Schlamme ended up having less than two days of prep before shooting. See more »

Goofs

When Leo and Adm. Fitzwallace are sitting in the Situation Room discussing what to do about Qumari Defense Minister Shareef, Fitzwallace states, "I've been a soldier for thirty-eight years." The problem with this statement is that Fitz is a Naval Officer - a distinction in service branch that is apparently overlooked by the scriptwriters: a member of the Navy would actually refer to himself/herself as a sailor, not a soldier. In American military jargon, 'soldier' denotes one who serves in the Army. See more »

Leo McGarry: No.
Admiral Percy Fitzwallace: I don't know who the world's leading expert on warfare is, but any list of the top has got to include me, and I can't tell when it's peacetime and wartime anymore.
