Corrected entry: In the sniper scene, after the bullets are cleaned of blood. The fresh magazine that he hands him is full of empty shells.
Corrected entry: When Sanford takes over the Barret sniper rifle from the killed (presumably) Blackwater guy, he takes position exactly where he got killed. Sanford appears to have sniper skills, as well as James as he immediately takes the spotter position. Given that they otherwise do not appear overly stressed, it would be highly unlikely to appear at the very same position. They should have changed position after the first kill.
Corrected entry: EOD personnel would NEVER attempt to manually-defuse an Improvised Explosive Device. A BOT (robot) would be deployed holding a chunk of C-4, which would then be dropped or placed on the IED and then sent back to the command post. The C-4 would then be detonated with the resulting pressure-blast usually detonating the IED. The potentially of a lethal-outcome of an EOD member manually-defusing an IED would be beyond great. Many IEDs are booby-trapped and/or daisy-chained to other explosives.joejitters
Corrected entry: In the sniper scene in the desert, the shelter the insurgents are using was built by mud or brick cinder blocks. Since the Barrett is actually an anti-materiel sniper rifle, i.e., to be used against vehicles that are armored, .50-caliber armor-piercing bullets from a Barrett M107 would have cut through those blocks like a white-hot knife through butter. The Barrett rifle has absolutely devastating power, and if Sgt. Sanborn had enough .50-cal. bullets he could have collapsed the small building on its foundation.joejitters
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film, you see Sgt. James walking to a new bomb-disassembly mission. When his suit changes from uniform to bomb-shield, you can see a man with a grey t-shirt and camera in his hand in from of James in the reflection of his helmet, just above the visor at the right. The next scene shows nobody in front of him. (01:05:25)medinauta
Guard at Liberty Gate: What were you doing out there?
Staff Sergeant William James: Visiting a whorehouse.
Guard at Liberty Gate: Okay. If I let you back in, will you tell me where it is exactly?
