Anonymous: Beware the quiet man. For while others speak, he watches. And while others act, he plans. And when they finally rest... he strikes.

The one minute long spoof during the long end credit on the movie review focus group:
Man1: Something's been bothering me this whole movie and I just figured it out. The whole thing's liberal. It's got a liberal bias.
Moderator: Interesting. Does anyone else feel that way? ... One, two, three, four people. Yeah, go ahead.
Man2: It's all facts. Right I mean, they had to vet all this with a lawyer. How does that make it... What's liberal about that?
Man1: You would say that, lib-tard.
Man2: Okay, I'm sorry.So, because I have the ability to understand facts, that makes me a liberal?
Moderator: Okay, guys, let's just take it down.
Man1: You probably like Hillary.
Moderator: Let's take it down a notch or two, okay?
Man2: Idiot. Okay, first of all, Hillary's not president. Okay? The-the-the orange Cheeto that you hired is the president and he's ruining the country...
Man1: Trump is the best thing in this country.

The end justifies the mean?
I can feel your recriminations... and your judgment... and I am fine with it. You want to be loved, go be a movie star. The world is as you find it. You gotta deal with that reality. And there are monsters in this world. We saw 3,000 innocent people burned to death by those monsters. And yet you object... when I refuse to kiss those monsters on the cheek and say "pretty please." You answer me this. What terrorist attack would you have let go forward so you wouldn't seem like a mean and nasty fella? I will not apologize... for keeping your family safe. And I will not apologize... for doing what needed to be done... so that your loved ones can sleep peaceably at night. Has been my honor... to be your servant. You chose me... and I did what you asked.
Surprised that Rumsfeld's "Known-Knowns-unknown" speech was not mentioned at all. One may disagree with his politics and motives but being a doofus as portrayed in the film, he is not:
‘There are known knowns. There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don't know.’
