FYI NCIS Writers

From the NCIS FAQ on becoming a Special Agent:

Is U.S. citizenship a requirement for the special agent position?
Yes. Applicants must possess a US-born or naturalized citizenship. Permanent residents are not eligible to apply for a special agent position.

Having a green card doesn't make you a citizen. It just means you can hold some jobs (most ordinary jobs that don't require a security clearance) and that you're now considered a permanent resident. To be an NCIS agent, you have to be an actual citizen.

OTOH they may pull out that she was actually born in the US or maybe her mom was an American. That's the only way I can see to get around the citizenship issue.

No way would Ziva have *ever* been able to keep that quiet.

Maybe she didn't know? She gets an email from her father telling her she's actually adopted and she was born in the US? She finds out she was switched at birth in a bizarre hospital mix-up and her real parents are American?

Or they explain it as one of the many, many things that she hasn't been telling Gibbs because it was part of her super-secret Mossad mission?

I think I could accept something like that more than them just pretending the problem doesn't exist - merely annoying, rather than actually insulting the viewers' intelligence.

Both are insulting to the viewer's intelligence, but SB doesn't seem to think the audience has much of a brain anyway.
