I wonder what Osama Bin Laden thinks when he watches 24. Does he feel smug? Does he ridicule the unrealistic plot and the personal attachments of the characters?
I bet he wonders how the evil mastermind is able to employ 600 committed villains, all highly skilled in computer programming, martial arts and English, in America, for years as they plan their attacks, without anybody getting even a sniff that anything is happening. This is especially weird considering how sensitive Jack Bauer and his CTU agent friends are to "chatter".
