** Similarly, some Pentagon generals rather liked it, both because of James Gandolfini, who apparently has a following there, and because they appreciated Gen. Miller's only sane man tendencies (not to mention the fact that even though Miller opposes the war, with sound reasons given (not just because he's a dove) but when war is declared, his immediate priority is providing leadership to his soldiers.

* BigBad: Linton Barwick. He is the mastermind behind the war, and even sees himself as superior to Malcolm. This arguably makes him ''BigBadWannabe.''
** Which makes Malcolm the DragonWithAnAgenda.



* JustFollowingOrders:
** As much of a {{Determinator}} as he may be, when Malcolm is left in that Meditation Room alone, that one close-up tells us that he knows fine well he's wrong. And that there's nothing he can do about it.
** Michael, too. He's reticent when he's told to delete a huge swath of an intelligence report that argues against war... but when Jamie simply picks his hand up and moves his finger to the Delete button, he puts up no resistance whatsoever.

** Several characters insult Malcolm by way of claiming that he's gay. He doesn't actually deny it (and then there are those phone calls to Jamie mentioned above...)

* DudeNotFunny: Malcolm's very specific threat to Simon that if he kicks up a fuss over being dismissed he will have the media "hound you to an assisted suicide", which rather uncomfortably recalls the fate of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Kelly_(weapons_expert) David Kelly]], the scientist who was revealed as the source of information that the Iraq WMD dossier was unreliable.
