Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Factual error: Towards the end of the film, Solomon is trapped in a small Plexiglas box and fires his gun into the bulletproof sides numerous times, but the bullets don't ricochet or get embedded in the glass.

Factual error: When the gas is turned on for the box, the red handle was moved to a right angle to the pipe which is standard for the off position.

Factual error: During the car/bike chase the air bags for the car should have gone off many times, most notably when the car hits the truck with the bike rider on the bonnet.

Suggested correction: The collision mentioned above was an impact at the C-pillar of the BMW. As someone involved in several traffic accidents, I know airbags are not infallible. The only airbag that MAY have been activated would be the side curtain airbag and only if the impact was near the sensor. Normally, side curtain airbags activate only in rollovers or direct T-bones.

Factual error: They are meant to be taking off from Belarus in the opening scene. However when they fly over the roads the traffic is driving on the left hand side of the road.

Revealing mistake: When Benji imagines putting on a mask of an agent he plans to impersonate, when the camera pans around to first show the mirror, the mirror Benji's hands are further up on his face than the reflection, and the mirror Benji's hands move down his face slightly before the reflection starts to move them. Also, the mole that Ethan has on his left cheek isn't reversed in the mirror image. The "mirror" was actually a hole in the wall between two identical sets (one mirrored), with Simon Pegg and a Tom Cruise double in the foreground, and the mask actor and Tom Cruise in the background "mirror" set.

Question: When Ilsa presents Ethan with his supposed 3 options, she says she's proof the Syndicate exists, but I'm not sure how exactly. She also says the CIA wouldn't believe them right afterwards. They all assume at this point the disc is a ledger though, so why wouldn't that definitively prove the Syndicate is real? I know of course that since it's encrypted they can't open it, but Ilsa doesn't know that! I don't see how she could come to the conclusion that the CIA won't believe them.
