The bank robbery and fatal bombing in Taos took place three years earlier, in 1969. But Broadhurst, reporting to Clifford after Carl Stokes is found dead, says Stokes could not have been the unidentified second bandit because "he was stationed in Germany from 1966 to 1969." (The novelization of this story corrects the error to say Stokes' term lasted from 1968 to 1971.) See more
