Episode Info

When the flash of a secret nuclear detonation is detected over the Indian Ocean, Bartlet calls upon his people to investigate which nation now has the atomic bomb--and since conventional thinking favors Iran, Bartlet orders bombers into the air to destroy that nation's most likely uranium-enriched targets. Meanwhile, Josh chides NASA personnel on the future of space exploration--until he is introduced to an attractive female administrator. C.J. fumes when a combative television talk-show host, Taylor Reid (JAY MOHR - "The Last Comic Standing"), denigrates her on the air, and Will discloses to Vice President Russell (recurring guest star GARY COLE - "Midnight Caller") that Russell is considered a buffoon by the White House staff.
