In this quote, replace "Flynn" with "Jack Bauer" or "Carrie Mathison" and tell me it truly sounds like incompetence.
Those are _fictional_ characters. You know "fiction"? Where contrived situations and railroad plots let the viewers play out juvenile power fantasies? I mean, I like an action movie/show as much as the next person, but I also realize when I'm watching them that I'm suspending disbelief just as much as when I'm watching a fantasy movie/show like _The Lord of the Rings_ or _Buffy the Vampire Slayer_. In the real world, without the contrived plot, and the superhuman powers (let's face it, pretty much all action heroes like Jack Bauer have superhuman powers such as super strength, speed, reflexes, fighting ability, deductive powers, damage resistance, ability to curve bullets around themselves so that they don't get killed by bullets, ability to torture people and actually get useful information, etc.) action heroes are just incompetent assholes who get people killed. Just picture all those action hero cops who turn in their badges to go after the bad guy, but, in the real world, they _don't_ get there in the nick of time and save the day heroically.
Making real world decisions based on fictional characters is crazy. The really sad thing is that people like you who can't tell fantasy from reality are probably a large part of why Trump is President elect right now. Too many people believed that he actually is his fictional character from TV.
Ah man, I'm getting tired of aspies.
