Secretary of Defense Albert Nimziki is the secondary antagonist in the movie Independence Day. He is a selfish cutthroat politician who puts his political career ahead of everything else, even the lives of innocents and hundreds of American pilots.
In the movie, his withholding of crucial information from the president and poor strategic military advice hinders the protagonists' fight for survival against the alien invaders until the president finally fires him for disobeying his orders when he refuses to abort the mission when the nuclear warhead they fired on the alien ship fails to penetrate its electromagnetic shield while simultaneously destroying the city of Houston.
