A JDAM is a Joint Direct Attack Munition, or a laser guided bomb.

(Not voting in November because you're pouting is a vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House)
All over Google - Looks like the 500# bomb was the correct load to achieve the desired result. Collapse the building twice. There are bigger ones, which would have left a greasy spot.
What we have is good pre-planning on the operation.

JDAM = Joint Directed Attack Munition
The "joint directed" means that any member of any American armed forces (Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy) can designate a target and call in a strike.
It's kind of like calling in Artillery, but with the range that covers the whole country.
