Yeah, I saw that. Funny. Homeland is based on a TV series from Israel called Prisoner of War, and the Israeli creator of Prisoner of War does much of the writing on Homeland. This is the sort of crazy propaganda that Americans are confronted with all the time. Keep in mind that most Americans are very parochial, few have traveled outside the local area where they were born and raised, so they swallow stuff like this without questioning. The most hilarious part of Homeland is that the imaginary CIA agent played by Claire Danes has bipolar, when in reality a mentally ill person would never get past the psych tests.
