[LH] Jack Ryan v.2 2016-10-05

Jack Ryan is the hero of a long series of espionage and military science novels by Tom Clancy, the first being The Hunt for Red October and the most recent being The Teeth of the Tiger. This leaderhead is modeled after Harrison Ford -- primarily because of the three actors that have played him, the others being Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October), Ben Affleck (The Sum of All Fears), Ford (Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger) is the only one to have played a sitting president (in the unrelated Air Force One).

Born in 1950, Ryan is a native of Maryland and began his career in the Marines before a training accident cut his military life short. He first distinguished himself in his work with the CIA, rising through the ranks before returning to government work, accepting the position of Vice President to Roger Durling. Shortly after his appointment, a Japanese terrorist flew a plane into the dome of the Capitol Building, killing the President and most of Congress. So, Ryan became President of the United States. His administration was mostly carried out through Executive Orders now the the legislative body was destroyed. He manages to take out a mad Iranian Ayatollah bent on domination of the Middle East and in the tradition of Monroe, Truman, and Reagan, issues the Ryan Doctrine, stating that the United States will no longer tolerate any attacks against American people or property.
