"I'm looking for Jack Bauer"

Since so many senior Republican officials dream of styling their national security strategy on FOX's 24 ; it should be remembered that in Jack Bauer's universe the United States has had two presidents assassinated, lost possession of a stealth fighter and a nuclear weapon, seen several reactors melt down, experienced multiple suicide bombings and had at least one city nuked.

This despite the frequent use of enhanced interrogation methods in the national defense.

That's because the fictitious Counter Terrorist Unit is completely inept and disfunctional. Jack Bauer tortures people because he doesn't know what the hell he's doing.
