Executive Decision

Plot hole: After Jaffa is captured the news gives a full report of Jaffa being held captive on an American warship in the Mediterranean. Why would the media know who was captured, who captured him, and where he was being held? This was a covert operation to capture the worlds most wanted man, the media shouldn't know any of this.

Plot hole: When soldiers board the plane Steven Segal dies but the pilot ejects safely. A major part of the plot is that the pentagon doesn't know anyone survived, but wouldn't the pilot know that some soldiers survived?

Suggested correction: Maybe the military have yet to find and retrieve the pilot of the stealth aircraft. The pilot could be a few hundred miles from the nearest ship and so until recovered, the military would have no way of confirming if the special forces unit had made it aboard the hijacked 747.

Plot hole: Not counting Altar or the Sleeper we know there at least 8 other terrorists on the plane. One of them is killed by Altar himself and five of them are killed by the strike team. What happened to the other 2 terrorists?

Factual error: A flight manifest would never state on its seating chart that an armed U.S. marshal was on board as it gives away that person's identity and puts everyone on board in danger.

Nagi Hassan: Allah has chosen us for a task far greater than Jaffa's freedom. We are the true soldiers of Islam. Our destiny is to deliver the vengeance of Allah into the belly of the infidel.
Ahmed: This has nothing to do with Islam. This is not Allah's will. You're blinded by hatred.
