We get it's a 'Die Hard' movie but can we have some logic at work here?
Why can't John McClane find out his son is in the CIA?
Based on all that's happened in his life (ie, the four previous movies) McClane would be a living legend in CIA/FBI/Police circles. You're telling me he wouldn't have any contacts that would let him know what his son was up to? Wouldn't the CIA freak out when they discovered McClane was even headed to Russia on a plane?
