A nuclear bomb explodes in the Indian Ocean, but no one in Washington knows who set it off. Bartlet and the staff scramble to figure out which country has nuclear capabilities, and when their thinking leads them to believe it's Iran, Bartlet orders bombers to destroy Iran's uranium-enriched targets. Meanwhile, Josh yells at NASA about the future of their program until he goes stargazing with a female administrator. Elsewhere, C.J. is fuming after being labeled "Chicken of the Week" by a local news station; and Will lobbies for a new "policy focus" for Vice President Russell.
