Oh, you mean that OTHER Jack Ryan

I was recently re-reading some of my Tom Clancy collection (say what you want about the man, he virtually invented the technothriller genre), and a few things struck me as odd. While the former insurance salesman has proven frighteningly accurate about a few things, almost to a supernatural degree, he has also shown himself more than willing to strap on his blinders to some other elements.

(Note: I’m putting most of this piece in the extended entry. For one, it contains spoilers for several of Clancy’s later books. For another, I suspect a lot of people simply won’t care.)
