I love the show, Frank and Claire Underwood are amazing characters. I am puzzled that when Yusuf al Ahmadi was allowed to speak to the kidnappers there wasn't an Arabic interpreter present nor was there a delay in permitting broadcasting of his remarks/comments. It was no secret that he was an Iraqi and spoke English as well. I know that the death of Mr Miller eventually played into the Underwoods plans and l look forward to season five. But, it would have been more believable if it were not so easy for Mr al Ahmadi to tell the kidnappers to kill Mr Miller. Love the writers but sometimes given the situation they underestimate the viewers intelligence.
