I feel like you're driving me to court martial. This is crazy. What did I do? I feel like you're gonna pull over and snuff me. What, you're not allowed to talk? Hey, Forrest!

(at around 1 min) When Tony Stark is in Afghanistan riding in a HMMWV without armor protection with several US Air Force Airmen. An up armored HMMWV's doors have very thick armor and glass. The blast holes in the side of the vehicle reveal this is not an armored variant of the HMMWV. This is almost impossible. Months after the US military attacked Afghanistan a General Order was made that prohibited non up-armored HMMWV's from leaving any base camps. Certainly, if Tony Stark was traveling with the US military he would have been afforded the highest level of security.
Part of the closing credits are seen against computer-graphic renders of armoured suits. One of the renders is an armour with a Gatling gun attached - the War Machine suit, which would appear in Iron Man 2 (2010).
The version of the film shows in AMC Theaters as part of a pre-Avengers Marvel Phase One marathon features an exclusive intro from Agent Coulson, talking about the film and the character. These Coulson intros were later includes as bonuses in the Avengers Phase One box set.
