    Yes, I agree they were rescued by McMurdo personnel, but where were the personnel that General Hammond said would arrive to secure the site going to come from? He certainly made it sound as if they would be SGC personnel.

    He must have been quite busy on the way to the Antarctic.

    I've also wondered about telling a sergeant to call McMurdo and give them orders. What's he supposed to say, "I'm Master Sergeant Harriman and General Hammond says to search these coordinates."? I can just imagine the reaction.

    Probably something about lost marbles... or some other.

    Make that a definite. They would have been given the location from the SGC and a team would have been sent from McMurdo to find and rescue them. My only thing is to wonder how General Hammond, Daniel and Teal'c got there so fast. It would have been something like a 10-12 hour flight from whatever military airport was near Cheyenne Mountain, and by then the McMurdo rescue team should have found Jack and Sam and had them safely back at McMurdo.

    They probably flew in on one of those huge C-130's or whatever designation those Globemasters have. The personnel to secure the site likely came with Hammond, Daniel and Teal'c and then were taken to the site by the McMurdo team. From things I've been reading that involve McMurdo, they have an airstrip big and long enough to accommodate a plane that big in landing.

    The orders to McMurdo may have come from a higher authority than Walter so that it would be taken seriously.

    In real life, it would have had to. But the scene in the briefing room ends with Gen'l Hammond telling Walter to call McMurdo and start the search.
