Yeah that was Carrie's play, to try to sex up Oleg so that he doesn't take over the flight recorder?
Look all she had to do was copy the files off the flight recorder onto her laptop and send that to Saul, the CIA, the POTUS, etc. Instead she's trying to pack up the red black box and is easily subdued?
Carrie just trashed Jenna's career, probably got those American soldiers arrested or worse in Pakistan.
Um Tasneem, she's a powerful minister in govt. but she goes alone and lets herself be taken hooded to see Jalal who's in her own country?
And Pakistan would rather roll out tactical nukes to fight Americans rather than take out a bunch of Taliban peasants with rifles? Yes I can understand Pakistan has greater sympathies to the Taliban than America and Haqqani have served their purposes in the past.
But they'd rather fight Americans than a bunch of goat herders and poppy farmers?
It's ridiculous, US gives billions in aid to Afghanistan and Pakistan and they're repeatedly telling the US to get bent.
When US Special Forces went into Pakistan and took out Osama Bin Laden, the Pakistanis weren't happy about it but they didn't do anything after the fact. Now if they had captured the Special Forces soldiers it might have been a sticky situation. But Pakistan knows where their bread is buttered. They can't tell US to get lost with the foreign aid nor risk driving the US and India closer together.
Homeland writers apparently think viewers are ignorant of global politics.
Why didn't they make up fake countries if they were going to make up completely fictitious real politik?
