"Sheriff, we have interrogated al-Qaeda members at Gitmo."

Al-Qaeda is the most hated terrorist organization in America, due to their involvement in the September 11 attacks. Terrorists are generally considered more dangerous and feared than blonde teenage detectives. But the most fundamentalist of Muslims is not half as snarky as Veronica Mars. Veronica, however, has never been to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which serves as the site of a detainment camp headed by Joint Task Force Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO). Nicknamed "Gitmo," this camp has seen much controversy over the years due to accusations of torture and— Did we say torture? We meant interrogation. Definitely just interrogation. They asked the prisoners questions is all.

"Am I hearing you right? Because you'd tell Osama bin Laden before you'd tell me..."

Osama bin Laden is very, very bad. See, he's the leader of al-Qaeda, the terrorist group responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001. This makes him the #1 Enemy of America. If you haven't heard of him, you must be living under a rock. Which is probably where he's hiding.
