    Trivia (3)

    • Goof: Eric says that the hacker posted the video at 10:23. However, if you look at the map he has on his screen while saying this, it is timestamped 9:23:07.

    • Goof: It is stated by Sam that it will take 20 minutes to get a F-22 Raptor from Edwards AFB up and across to intercept the Predator UAV, which Callen states is too long - yet they have time to drive across LA to a Marina on the coast somewhere to stop it in person at the controls - which even in light LA traffic will take a lot longer than 20 minutes.

    • Both Callen and Hanna speak Arabic.
