Jack Bauer is a true American hero. He works for CTU and has sacrificed almost everything for this country: his wife, his relationship with his daughter, the use of the bathroom during very hectic days.
Bauer is controversial to some because he'll go to any length to protect his country. But, look, he just does what he needs to do in order to protect American citizens. We need more people like Jack Bauer in the world.
Over the course of several difficult days, he's gotten hooked on heroin (in the name of a mission), saved the life of a Presidential candidate and killed his own brother and father. The guy has had a tough personal life.
