Episode Goofs
C.J. is woken up at 3:45 AM and is told about the plane being shot down. 3:45 AM is 12:15 Tehran time, so the Iranian army shot a plane down in the middle of the day, which is an odd strategy considering they thought it was a spy plane. Later, Bartlet and Lord Marbury are told via radio transmissions that the plane was shot down at 2:33 GMT, which would be 11:33 Eastern Standard Time. However, this is a different time than when C.J. is woken up.
