   The man who removes the bomb from the farmer's yard is the farmer's son, who does it for free. The man who removes the bomb from the farmer's yard is the scrap collector, who buys it.
   The farmer's son doesn't immediately know it's a bomb until he takes it apart. The scrap collector knows immediately it is a bomb.
   The nuclear bomb fizzles because it was detonated before the East German scientist was able to purify the plutonium (he was killed by his terrorist comrades before he could inform them.) It's never explained why the bomb fizzles.
   When caught, the terrorists lie and claim Iran was funding them. The terrorists never make this claim.
   There is nothing that suggests the President or Congress do not trust Cabot. Cabot's judgment is questioned during an intelligence briefing.
