The Blueprint - S1-E9

Character mistake: In the 11/14/2005 US Army Rangers report about Peter MacLeish, the word captain right under MacLeish's signature is misspelled "captian."

Home - S2-E8

Character mistake: President Kirkman calls a soldier a Corporal when she's wearing the rank of Specialist. Next, he calls a soldier Private when he is also wearing the rank of Specialist. (00:04:46)

Kirkman Agonistes - S2-E18

Character mistake: The chessboard on the desk part way into the episode is set up wrong. Any chess player knows the "white on right" mantra for the white square being in the right corner of the board. In the show the entire board is off and black is in the lower right corner. (00:11:20)

Outbreak - S2-E3

Character mistake: The ‘Brit', Damien from Scotland Yard, and Emily are outside the archive facility - Damien pronounces ‘route' the American way (rowt, rather than root).

Tom Kirkman: What do you want me to do, General, declare war? Why not. 40 minutes ago, they showed me the nuclear football. I guess I've had it long enough to try it out.

Answer: Apparently the characters were eliminated due to cost-cutting measures by Netflix and after salary negotiations with the actors failed.

Oh. That makes the most sense. I also forgot to mention Kirkman's brother.
