Corrected entry: In the first series, the terrorists give Jack a telephone and ask him to kill the senator before they'll tell him where Kim is. They tell him they'll ring that phone at exactly 10:45pm. When Jack gets to the senators suites it's around 10:20pm, the terrorists telephone shortly after he arrives. For all they know he could still be en route to the hotel so why were they so quick off the mark?Kara
Corrected entry: If the movie Air Force One can be a guide, it was impossible for Mitch Anderson to shoot down the president's plane this easily. Air Force One has countermeasures to elude missiles targeting it and this is now shown in the show. Also, once the President found out about the imminent attack on Air Force One he would have been escorted to his escape pod.
