People are milling around Leo's office when he arrives saying, "The order was given at 16:27; code name, Pericles I. Four targets, all military. Two munitions dumps in northern Rashan, Safian Bridge and IHQ." The estimated time of the attack is about 6:30 PM EST. Leo tells C.J. that she can come to the Situation Room in about twenty minutes for a briefing, and tells Toby and Sam that the Prez will go on network at 9:00 PM, so they should start zeroing in. As the three of them rush off to their work, he reminds them that there are to be no phone calls in or out, and tells C.J. that she can't say a word to the press without his go-ahead. C.J.: "They're going to wonder what all the fuss is about." Leo: "Then let's not have any fuss." C.J. mentions that she could use some time with the President, and Leo replies, "You and me both." He manages to reassure her and she rushes out. Josh is still standing near the doorway, hands in his pockets. Josh asks Leo if he's okay; Leo says he's fine. Josh brings up the issue of the President's mood, particularly the fact that Jed was snapping at the First Lady. Leo tells Josh he's right, but that Leo can't deal with that right now. He then hollers for Margaret. (Doesn't anyone in this building have intercoms?) Josh tells Leo that he's interviewing a kid for the position of personal aide, and that he's really great, and got good marks, and is postponing school to support his sister until she gets out of high school, and adds the part about his mother's being shot.
