President John Patrick "Jack" RyanEdit

  • President in numerous novels by Tom Clancy, previously serves as a Marine Lieutenant, CIA analyst & emissary, Deputy Director of Central Intelligence, and National Security Advisor.
  • Because he is the first Marine to become President and in reference to a gift by a Saudi Prince to him, his Secret Service codename is "SWORDSMAN".
  • Ryan is married and has four children, younger son born shortly after his re-election.
  • Jack Ryan assumed the presidency after the death of the president and most of Congress after a terrorist attack on The Capitol (ending Clancy's novel Debt of Honor). The Ryan Administration tries to significantly alter Washington politics by cutting through bureaucracy and political infighting, in part by encouraging "regular people" to run for Congress, who will serve their terms and return home, rather than professional, lifelong politicians whom he refers to as "a permanent ruling class" (throughout Executive Orders).
  • Participates in the arrest of a terrorist mole in the Secret Service by helping the FBI run a sting operation in the Oval Office. The mole's fellow assassin's from Iran earlier raided the daycare center attended by Ryan's younger daughter, killing a teacher and several of little Katie's Secret Service Guards. None of the attackers survived.
  • In foreign policy, the Ryan Administration fights two wars; the Second Persian Gulf War with the newly created United Islamic Republic, a union of Iraq and Iran, and the Russo-Chinese War, fought over Siberian oil (in The Bear and the Dragon). Not long before the latter war, Ryan had successfully pushed for an expansion of NATO to include the Russian Federation, in a futile attempt to deter a Chinese attack.
  • Pronounces the "Ryan Doctrine"; this states that anyone who attacks American citizens anywhere in the world, no matter who he may be, will be held accountable by the United States. This is consistent with Ryan's belief that "the safety and security of our citizens is ultimately my country's only vital interest." The doctrine can be seen as a reaction to the rise of terrorist attacks on American citizens, including by the state organs of countries like Iran (or, in the book, the UIR). Iran's Ayatollah had masterminded the release of the Ebola Zaire virus in America's major cities, to neutralize the U.S. military while the UIR invades and crushes Israel. Despite this, the non-quarantined military reserves are deployed to the Middle East and thwart the invasion. Afterward, while Ryan is on camera pronouncing his doctrine, coverage flips to a palace in Iran, which is then incinerated by U.S. stealth bombs, killing the Ayatollah & his regime.
  • Ryan refuses to run for a second term - a decision he regrets when the Democrat Ed Kealty is elected President and enacts policies to which Ryan strongly objects. In the next elections Ryan re-enters active politics, runs against Kealty and narrowly defeats him.
  • Party: Independent / Republican. The Ryan Administration espouses many conservative, traditionally Republican beliefs, but Ryan is said to support candidates from both parties. Ultimately, the integrity and loyalty of politicians matters far more to Jack Ryan than their party affiliation. However, the reference to the GOP winning Ohio and Michigan in Locked On implies that Ryan ran on the Republican Party ticket in the 2008 presidential election against incumbent Ed Kealty. This is reflected in the presidential debates, where there is only Kealty (the Democratic candidate) and Ryan.
