Revealing mistake: When Mason is having his hair cut, after finishing up, he is talking to Womack and turns his back on him. If you look at the back of Mason's neck, it is clear that he's not just been freshly shorn; there are whorls of hair just above his collar. (Either that, or the barber was terrible at his job).

Suggested correction: Not all barbers do neck hairs. The barber probably didn't want agitate anyone by taking too long.

Question: During the SEAL team raid on the rock, they are using two "decoy choppers" which fly towards Alcatraz. What is the point of this? Wouldn't it be easier to just have the transport chopper fly all the way to drop zone under radar coverage?

Chosen answer: Alcatraz is small enough and out in the middle of the bay that any lookout in a high point could see and hear a chopper, no matter where it approached from. The idea of the decoys was to split any enemy fire received. The whole insertion of SEALS was absurd, in a real situation like that, the SEALS would have been inserted by submarine or used dive motors to pull themselves to the island.
