* SwissCheeseSecurity: The Area 51 guard lets Steven and his huge convoy into the base without so much as a phone call.

* SwissCheeseSecurity: The Area 51 guard lets Steven and his huge convoy into the base without so much as a phone call. {{Justified}} though, as the alien invasion has made the secret of housing an alien craft moot, and no one would be willing to turn away a few thousand scared refugees while the ''President'' is there on an inspection.

* IsraelisWithInfraredMissiles: The Israeli military appears in a brief scene and is more than capable of taking out the alien ship in its part of the world. It's also an EnemyMine scene as it shows they have set up camp inside Iraq alongside British and Iraqi forces.

** The targeted buildings such as the Empire State Building and the White House is actually justified. They are located in or near the center of large cities, which the aliens target in order to kill as many humans in their first wave as possible.

* SchizoTech: For the aliens. They have the space travel, laser beams, indestructible forcefields... but their computer security technology is so primitive a guy with a laptop can hack it; they didn't even ''[[GenreBlindness think]]'' about the possibility of a security breach, even though they were [[HoistByHisOwnPetard interfacing]] with the Earth's satellite network. It wouldn't be the first time an alien race of invaders had some technological deficiency that lead to them being defeated (it goes all the way back to ''War of the Worlds'') but this one is particularly egregious.\\ \\ The computer security thing could well be justified. Considering that they appear to be a monolithic hive culture, it's entirely logical that these aliens would have never created computer viruses of their own, and therefore never needed firewalls and anti-virus programs on their own world. Then, once they were out in space, they might never have encountered them until us. After all, most of their victims were probably less advanced than us, and even we win only due to a 'perfect storm' of circumstances, i.e. 1: We're advanced enough to have the concept of a virus program. 2: We're flexible-minded enough to conceive of using such in this way. 3: We're lucky enough to have a functional alien ship with which to carry out the attack.
