Factual error: When Dr Ryan first arrives in Colombia and takes a government vehicle through town, he rolls down the window. The DEA agent says, "Don't do that because it's a bulletproof vehicle." In reality, you can't roll down the window on an armored/bulletproof vehicle. (00:50:00 - 00:55:00)

Suggested correction: A quick Google search shows that some armored cars have roll-down windows and some don't. Maybe this one did.


Factual error: It wouldn't have mattered that Ritter had his "autographed get out of jail free card" given to him by Cutter or authorized by the President, it was still an illegal operation that Congress didn't know about. Anyone involved in it would be going to prison regardless of position.

Suggested correction: The point Ritter is making is the operation was personally authorized by the President behind closed doors. If Cutter and Ritter were arrested for their involvement, they would be pardoned by the President. The President of the United States has the authority to pardon someone even before they have been charged with a federal crime, as Gerald Ford did for Richard Nixon. Jack doesn't have this protection because he is to be the scapegoat if the scandal is exposed.


Continuity mistake: At the end, when Jack Ryan is arguing with the President, his "A" tag switches from being over the lapel of his jacket to under it, without him moving.
