Trivia: There were several Secret Service consultants on this film to give realism to the action. However, they were unhappy with the final product as it seemed that the kidnappers were able to get to the President without all that much trouble, even if they did have an insider.
Trivia: Bill Clinton was interviewed for this movie to get the perspective of the President and how he would interact with his entourage.
Phil McCullough: Mr. President, we have to act strong.
President Ashton: No we have to be strong. We have the world's sympathy. Let's honor them.
Question: In Thomas Barnes' perspective, near the end of it, he orders the studio guy to rewind the tape and then he says "stop", followed by "oh my god", but when the complete terrorist plan is shown, he instead stays staring at the monitor because he's watching Taylor. Is this a mistake, or are these two separate events? If it is the second one, what did he see in his perspective?
