Did You Know?


The scene in which the convoy of Suburbans is attacked is interspersed with footage from Clear and Present Danger (1994). The scene is now actually used as a training video in US government agencies. See more »


Meg behaves in a most inappropriate and unprofessional manner when she interferes between the gunny and his Marines, especially in front of his men, and it's absurd for her to issue direct orders to him about his performance of his military duties, over which she does not have any lawful authority, and about which she does not know squat. Meg is supposed to have learned at least a little bit about the chain of command during her abbreviated orientation in Newport, Rhode Island, where she received her commission, and where she attended the Naval Justice School. In this instance the writers placed Meg in an unfavorable light and an untenable position. See more »

The movie "clear and present danger" was released in august 1994 and had taken place in bogota colombia with pretty much the same kind of rooftop ambush scenes as this episode which took place in lima peru ... it looks very much like the writers stole from tom clancy
