When they are in the helicopter taking the president to the hospital, they say he has a "gunshot wound to the head", but in the shooting you can see clearly the gunshot was not in the head.

The Mammoths logo on the TV motion graphic has the tusks pointing to the left. The Mammoths logos on Thomas' displays of checks has the tusks pointing to the right. Such a logo would not be used both ways.
The Thomas S. Foley Federal Courthouse is in Spokane, Washington, not in the vicinity of Washington, D.C. By allowing the full name of the courthouse to be in view, this gives away the actual location.
Thomas drowns, then Crawford miraculously uses the scuba tank to revive him, even though his lungs are full of water.
The bubbles from the scuba tank (the exhaled air) do not come up when the tank is being used and they do not appear until they use it as a decoy, with the air being released by itself, which would have emptied the tank. Then a day or two later, Crawford finds the tank and uses it.
Even though he's had a .45 hole in his left hand Thomas continues to use the hand throughout the film. Even though no bones were hit, the damage to the hand and the effects of the healing process would have made this exceedingly difficult.
In the opening credits, Cuba Gooding, Jr.'s name is written as "Cuba Gooding, J.R."

When arriving at the General's house a large tree in the foreground has two large limbs that were recently cut off but without any dressing. They were obviously cut off just for this shot. No tree surgeon would have left things in that condition.
The agent on fire would have known to stop, drop and roll. At one point Thomas waves a blanket at the flames, which would have provided the fire with more oxygen. Further, when the agent is yelling at Thomas the fire retardant gel is glaringly apparent.
At several points Thomas and other agents are shown entering dark areas while being brightly backlit, which make them to be excellent targets, and when Thomas enters the dark office he makes no attempt to turn on the lights while he and his fellow agent are well lit. As a firefight was already in progress, there would be no reason to leave the lights out.
When Thomas contacts the general and tells him the shocking news that the assassin was not acting alone, the general responds by saying, "You're kidding." This is, at the very least, a strange and trivializing response.
During the general's talk with Thomas and Crawford, he spends the entire time looking down, as if he were reading cue cards, rather than looking at the two and reciting information that he knew quite well.
When Thomas and Crawford are being pursued in the car, at no point does either take out their cell phone and try to report this or summon help.
The first lady's triptych painting is of a spider on a web. This blatantly gives away the whole story. This is reinforced when she makes Thomas see things from her point of view.
There is a long establishing shot of Thomas and Crawford pulling up in front of the mansion plus a shot of them being led into the house. During this time you do not hear any skeet shooting taking place. When they emerge into the back yard the general is shooting once every few seconds. Also, the general is shooting where the clay fragments would fall onto a neighbor's backyard. The umbrellas of a patio set are clearly visible on the other side of the wall. Beyond this, the skeet machine is firing to the left, whereas the general is shooting straight-on.
As a freelance journalist, Crawford strongly relies on her cell phone. She would clearly carry a charger in her purse. She hears the battery alert twice, plus the call drops from a lack of power yet she never plugs in the charger. Considering the significance of what was going on, she would never have neglected her phone. Then, when the power goes out, Crawford is not in the least suspicious and even hums a little song.
The agents show up at the warehouse in an armored personnel carrier. Typically, this would be used in a situation with agents dressed in tactical gear. Instead, the occupants are all in plain clothes. This incongruity makes it appear that the producer was being very lax.
When Thomas and Crawford discover the key to the mystery Thomas makes two calls to a colleague but at no point tells him his suspicion.
