A special-operations team captures a high-level member of the Al Qaeda, and the President of the US authorizes a military tribunal, which then convenes aboard USS Seahawk (CVN-65). Harm and Mac prosecute, and RAdm. Chegwidden and Sturgis defend. Bud and PO Coates give their cooperation and hospitality. Clayton Webb also shows up, but he says that he's not there. Mac and Clayton go ashore to a detention camp, where they encounter the Gunny, and where Mac experiences a tense moment. The defendant defeats Clayton's post-trial questioning. Meanwhile Loren, as the senior officer remaining in the office, runs the place, and she does what she does best.
Did You Know?
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden
Mr. Atef, what happened on September 11 was reprehensible. But our way of life entitles you to a fair trial, no matter how cowardly the act.
A wise precaution for a nation so morally corrupt. Want to know what I say about September 11? Every single person who died that day got exactly what they deserved.
