Abbott (Donald Moffat) says that Interpol had been trying to catch Carlos for twenty years. In fact, the real Carlos was born in 1949, and did not become a terrorist until 1970, at age twenty-one, when he joined the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (P.F.L.P.). Therefore, if Interpol had been trying to catch him for twenty years in 1987 (when the movie was in production), they would have been trying to catch him before he was known to the world. In actuality, he was not known until his first successful bombing, in France, 1975, just twelve years prior to production.
