* Why is someone who uses chemical weapons allowed on a CTU team? I mean shouldn't Smoke be arrested or something? I'm pretty sure chemical weaponry is illegal.

** It's illegal to use it against someone covered by the Geneva Conventions, sure everyone on Rainbow Six is covered but they're currently just actually training against each other (maybe this is just some insane live fire exercise for Rainbow, or in a simulation). The gas charges are actually meant for the White Masks (Terrorist Hunt) who AREN'T covered by the Geneva Conventions (because they attack civilians)

** No. Apparently a full US citizenship is required to join the [=FBI=]. While they do recruit foreign ''experts'', these people do not become fully-fledged FBI staff, what more becoming an agent or operative.

* Do [=FBI=] actually allow foreigners in their ranks? Seemed to me only right that national security falls within its citizens' hands. While I can see why Fuze, born an Uzbek, is in the Spetsnaz (Fuze is registered as a Russian Citizen), I can't see reason in the [=FBI=] recruiting Ash, whose nationality remains Israeli. (ps: I'm sorry if you interpret this as anti-Israeli, I do not mean so, just wondering if the [=FBI=] recruit foreign citizens.)

* Why is Vega assigned an M-60 anyway? A 7.62 x 51 NATO round has a lot of penetration power that can punch right through walls that aren't made of concrete or something harder. Doesn't make the weapon useless for Rainbow's mission statement? Vega himself admitted that he'll probably never really use the M-60 in his tour in Rainbow. Wouldn't it make better sense to assign him an M249 or FN Minimi, both weapons are more accurate than the M60 but still have just enough punch to take out a bad guy with bodyarmor or a vehicle.

** Sometimes "just enough punch" can become "not enough punch". Enemies are smart, they can wear new, tougher body armour, or add a few more mm to vehicle plating. That's where "more punch" is needed: the 7.62x51mm NATO round. Sure the M60's accuracy is poop, but if you're able to nail the opponent, he's toast, with or without armour.
