    Janeane Garafalo wound up on a show as Fascist as "24"!

      was actually a great role for Janeane Garafalo and 24 is one of my guilty pleasures. 7th season was one of the best written and dealt with many issues like a Halliburton/XE private military contractor going rogue and attempting to subvert the government through terrorist attacks.  you watched the season you would clearly see that her role was written with the intention that she was standing up to what she saw as abuses by another agent.

        but that really didn't work out for her, or the other agent, now did it?  It's not like that show was ever going to really give the anti-torture view a fair hearing.  The section, in that season, where Bauer convinced a FBI agent to perform a Mock Execution of an Infant in order to get information from her parents was FLAT. OUT. OVER. THE. LINE.  That's Listed as a War Crime by the U.N. Convention Against Torture.
