During the 1970s to 1980s because there was no "High Tech" like instant image digital cameras and video, only the Polaroid camera, everybody relied on accurate physical intelligence, especially physical descriptions of people.

In this case everybody's Intelligence Agencies and Agents including Terrorist Intelligence Cells would have reported that somebody over 6 feet tall was impersonating the Palestinian Terrorist "Michael", Saleem. The average height of "Middle Easterners" is under 6 feet.

Because Osama Bin Laden was about 6 feet 5 inches tall we knew that he was not involved with Us 1980 to 1999 CIA Operation Cyclone Afghanistan nor Pakistan as our CIA created Muhajeen, as he (OBL) would have been easily detected by the U.S.S.R. Spetsnaz and KGB during our Insurgency War of hiding among the Afghans Civilians. His (OBL) head would have been sticking up in a crowd. We also knew because he (OBL) was not in our computer databases of everybody we trained during CIA Operation Cyclone the first time we used laptop computers to record all information of those we Trained, Armed, Lead. He was at Yemen creating his Al Quada.

If detected the U.S.S.R. would have "Carpet Bombed" and used Mustard Gas for Miles. In the case of "Michael" the PLO Terrorists would have sent a "Hit Squad" to eliminate him and everybody seen with him.

Writer needs to figure this out.

Accurate depiction of Interrogation, Use of Psychotropic drugs instead of torture.

Accuracy 4 Height of "Michael" Israelis would not be that careless. Accuracy 5 Interrogation Entertainment 5
