Of all the images that have emerged from the morally unclean events of Sunday night, the most politically significant and, one has reason to believe, enduring will prove to be the official photograph, released by the White House, of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and other high officials of the United States government seated together in the situation room as they witnessed the killing of Osama bin Laden and several other human beings, including one woman.
Normally, the witnesses to an execution are not photographed. But the White House clearly wanted this “historic moment” captured for posterity. The eyes of all the participants in this ghoulish tableau—with the exception of a military officer who is working his computer—are apparently focused on a television screen. Obama, leaning forward, is stone faced as he stares ahead. Gates wears the sour expression of a man who is too well acquainted with such operations. Hillary Clinton’s right hand is raised over her mouth, a gesture that betrays the horror of what is unfolding before her eyes.
After bin Laden had been liquidated, the White House and the media moved quickly to orchestrate the celebration of what was, in fact, an extra-legal state killing. The president chose the East Room to inform the nation, late Sunday night, of bin Laden’s death.Okay, let's talk Chuck. Devon. He's served his purpose. He's just not funny on his own. Or in large doses. They gave him way to much to do in this episode. You know Ellie has developed as a result of becoming a parent. Devon's just becoming a caricature. And his idea of a great bachelor party was embarrassing (a camping trip!).
So Chuck and Sarah are getting married and it was time for their parties. Ellie planned a spa day but first a wicked party.
Remember Vivian Volcoff? She's decided that she has to kill Agent X. Why?
He's the man her father feared. If she kills him, nothing stands in her way.
Who is Agent X?
Chuck thinks it's him.
Ellie explains not unless their father created Agent X before Chuck was born.
Ellie finally was told that Chuck was still CIA. She wasn't surprised really and pointed out that he was still working at the Buy More so she should have figured that out.
Then she got to see Castle (the headquarters under the Buy More) for the first time.
Morgan, Casey, Sarah and Chuck then went to England to try to find Agent X only to be attacked by Vivian's people (who had earlier attacked the camping trip).
And that's as far as I got. If there was more . . . Sorry. I had to stream Green Hornet. I meant to see that at the movies but never had time. I'm watching it now. Seth's just left his business card and said it's his town now.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
