In both Brussels airport and the Liège railway station, we hear a Dutch voice with a Hollandic accent (Dutch as spoken in The Netherlands) speaking through the PA. This doesn't make sense as in Liège the language would be French, and in the airport, Dutch announcements would be with a Belgian accent (Flemish).

Factual errors 

The Julian Assange interview at the Ecuadorian embassy has the Colombian flag in the background.
After Manning is busted and communications between Assange and Domscheid-Berg are cut, Marcus chats with Assange. Then Domscheid-Berg uses Marcus's laptop to chat to Assange. The chat somehow recognizes the change in typing person, reflecting this in stating that the message came from "ddd" / Domscheid-Berg.
