The Kingdom

Factual error: In the intro sequence of the movie where they show old clippings and all, the animation part depicting the sep,11 incident seems to be wrong.

The north tower in the animation can be identified by the antenna. (00:03:10)

Trivia: Throughout the movie, they refer to the terrorist bomb-maker by the name of Abu Hamza.
