Goofs: When the commercial airliner is taking off from Reagan National for JFK it taxis by a black sign with white "10" on it. This sign indicates the 10,000 ft location on a runway. The longest runway at National is only 6,869 feet.
Overview: Season 7, set 65 days after the end of Redemption, begins at 8:00 am. Jack is assisted by the FBI and covert operatives when the firewall for America's federal computer infrastructure is breached by the same people responsible for a conflict in Sangala. Jack must uncover who is corrupted within President Taylor's administration, which has allowed for the Sangalans to raid the White House and capture Taylor. She is later blackmailed by a fictional private military company in an attempt to release biological weapons on U.S. soil. Jack must thwart these attacks so the conspirators will fail to cement their power at a government level.
