Afghan Prime Minister

The Prime Minister denied the allegation and warned Palmer that any unjust retaliation on his country would make the U.S. an enemy to over one third of the world's population. Later in the evening, after the bomb had been detonated, the Prime Minister's deputy Barghouti called and expressed both his and the Prime Minister's outrage and horror at what had happened.
- Prime Minister: I would appreciate it if you would stop using my people and my country as a source for every threat leveled at the United States.
- President Palmer: If you care for the lives of your citizens, you need to hear me loud and clear. Mr. Prime Minister, if a bomb goes off today, it will hurt us... but it will destroy you.
- Prime Minister: Then Mr. President, you will have created an enemy of over one-third of the world's population. Proceed carefully.

Prime Minister of Turkey
President James Prescott, newly sworn in to office after David Palmer was unseated during 25th Amendment proceedings, ordered an air-strike against three Middle Eastern nations. These nations had been falsely implicated as conspirators in the Second Wave nuclear weapon which detonated in the Mojave Desert. The bombers were unexpectedly spotted in Turkish airspace by Turkish surveillance, so the Prime Minister of Turkey tried to contact the American President to inquire on their mission. President Prescott was unwilling to appear before the Prime Minister (since even the American public was unaware of the shift in power), so he asked the recently-unseated Palmer to masquerade as President. Palmer agreed, in order to protect the lives of the servicemen in the air. It was inferred from later events that Palmer successfully talked the Prime Minister into letting the Americans fly over his country.

- Ambassador: That's your justification for killing innocent people?
- Hamri Al-Assad: You and I define innocent in different ways.
- Ambassador: My own deputy lost his seven-year-old son in one of your bombings. That is how I define innocent. ("Day 6: 4:00pm-5:00pm")
- Wayne Palmer: This is President Palmer.
- Ambassador: Mister President, my government has alerted me of the nuclear weapon heading toward my country.
- Wayne Palmer: That's correct, Mister Ambassador, we've made good on our threat.
