*** Probably because he doesn't have any other options, and he probably assumed the JC did it out of mercy and not anything else.

* So there's a freighter full of Gray Death nanovirus that JC Denton is given orders to sink... ''after it's already docked at the Brooklyn Naval Yard''. That seems to me rather like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. While sinking the freighter does make things a little more difficult to deal with, it's an indoor dock at a ''submarine maintenance facility'', which presumably means the water can be drained away. What precisely has JC accomplished?

**** No one said he ''didn't'' notice. But Manderley could easily have just ordered him to shut up and not tell anyone, especially considering UNACTO has a standing secrecy policy.

*** The [=MJ12=] facility is primarily a nanotech and medical lab. Most of the equipment needed for that facility will naturally be going through the medical lab anyway. Anything else that needs to go down there can pass through while Jaime is off-duty. Also keep in mind that the fact that there is a restricted area is known to everyone in the UNATCO base, and they're also acclimated to secrecy. Manderley can just pass it off as a secured, secret section of the UNACTO facility, and while Jaime might not like it, he will follow orders. Anything else can be sealed in a crate, and the [=MJ12=] personnel passing through would just wear UNACTO uniforms and masks until they get to the secured area.

**** There's a note in the helibase that mentions that all vehicle crew and troops have been confined to barracks due to munitions-related issues and the control rooms are sealed off. No one is even in the helibase's control rooms at the time, so they'd have no idea a helicopter had even arrived, let alone that it was one associated with the UNACTO snafu halfway across the globe.

** Try talking to anyone who is a member of a cult, a religious fundementalist, or has been brought up with strong beliefs (racism, political ect) especially if brought up in an enviroment with no other points of view. quite often they have the mentality "my view is the right one everything else is wrong all that evidence to the contrey is lies" which would make them useless as covert operatives as the moment someone says something they don't agree with they will tip their hand. it's one of the reasons the age old test for spies has always been to ask them something in what one suspects is their native language as they will instinctivly respond to it. where as if you've got someone raised in an enviroment where they are naturally exposed to multiple viewpoints they tend to get a greater apreciation for the one they are raised with and are better equiped to deal with situions where discression is key. otherwise MJ12 may as well just build 10,000 bots and set them lose to kill everyone rather than have someone who can infiltrate the enemy ranks, possibly sow discontent, use their discression and think outside the box (i.e instead of killing the guy you were sent to kill, talk to him in hopes of being led to the bigger fish or capture him in hope he can provide more information)beter to have a thinking soldier who can adapt and change plans based on new information than a mindless killer. the series P (MIB/WIB) agents are examples of those brought up to be totally loyal to MJ12 ignoring the unnatural skin colour and voices they still have an odd demeanour about them, one MJ12 trooper in the catacombs talks about how Hela (the WIB) freaks him out

** There is a note (either on a datapad or email) that talks about how they want to recover all possible wetwear from your body after you have died, as well as study the effects of the kill switch so that they can make a more effective one for future nano-augs

*** Simple fact is Paul describes it as feeling like a bad case of the flu, now think of the worse case of flu you've had, your muscles ache, you're unstead on your feet, you can't really think straight, now try climbing a ladder, not an easy thing to do even with the adrenalin pumping, but instead try picking up a gun and shooting it, takes a lot less effort and there is historical precident for people who were very ill/injured fighting off attackers (jim bowie in the alamo for example who is said to have killed 6 guys with a knife while being bedridden), there's also the fact he's going for the heroic sacurifice so his little brother can escape instead of slowing him down and risking them both getting caught.

*** The whole thing stinks of a adhoc set up. they have a couple of sentry guns. one they set up on the main door, the other in the stairwell and the last one to cover gunther, the bulk of their troops on the ground patrol around the main entrance with a few others covering the flanks and (judging by the one guy in the bunker) trying to take out UNATCO's power to further stall them. ontop of this the troops seam to be kitted out with whatever they happen to have (pistols, crossbows, one sniper rifle) implying it was a last minuet plan using whoever happen to be available at the time.

** Many militaries have a point system where based on your preformance, conduct, how much action you've seen depends on how fast you get promoted, some even have diffrent point requirments for ranks for diffrent positions (infantry, heavy weapons, technicians ect) so the guy saying he's going to make commando in 2 months could simply be saying "i've seen so much action and I'm such a brown nose they're going to promote me" also it could be like the UNATCO mech-augs where it's a voluntary position and the 2 months is the waiting list (time taken to for the augs to be manufactured to fit the particular body, medical checks, building the armour and so forth)

**It could be assumed that Daedalus is preventing icarus from accessing JC's infolink anytime it likes as such limiting what page is able to know. also Alex states on liberty island that they can switch off the infolink, suggesting that he and Tong simply changed the codes and only actervate it when you're in the field which is when Page and everyone else hounds you. or Alex and Tong change the codes and icurus keeps breaking it forcing them to change it again which would explain the sporadic communications

** The base on Liberty Island was founded just recently - they haven't yet accomodated.

accomodated
**I always saw it as the upstairs offices were shared between the grunts as they only really needed access to computers to write up reports, the denton's office (initially paul's) is because the nano-aug project was Manderley's baby and I wouldn't be supprised if said office originally belonged to anna and gunther (would help explain their hostility at nano-augs and fear of being replaced). as for anna and gunther being stuck in a corridor, well just look at where they are, they are in perfect position to question prisoner's and should someone try to break out they have to first get past a pair of psychotic cyborgs.
