USMC infantry veteran and active CTC intelligence officer Jack Ryan starts tracking Islamic fundamentalist Mousa Bin Suleiman and an imminent biological attack on U.S. soil.


“Asshole.  Could be worse, Harold.  Could be a Mets fan.  No, ma’am.  Oh, shit.  Uh, Jack Ryan.  I work Yemen.  I’ve been monitoring SWIFT network transactions in and around Aden.  And… um… well, actually, in the last few months, I have red flagged several of these transactions as potentially suspicious.  It’s anomalous to see large, one-off SWIFT transactions to individuals, especially in Yemen.  And normal SWIFT transactions usually occur in patterns.  Um, it is my theory that the individual behind these transactions could be a high-level target.  Well, now, that I’m not… necessarily clear… I believe his name is Suleiman.  It means ‘man of peace.’  He just popped up on CTC Yemen’s radar.  The RH assets have mentioned him as well, so… it’s not about what they’re saying, sir, it’s about how they’re saying it.  I mean, they’re talking about this guy with real reverence and I’m not talking sectarianism.  I mean, he appeals to Shia and Sunni.  Well, one of the difficulties in cobbling together intel is dealing with two databases that aren’t meant to talk to one another.  That’s why I’ve actually written a custom SQL query…” — Jack Ryan

“Anyone know why he got PNG’d back to headquarters?  Shit.” — Jack Ryan

“Hello?  Hey, Joe.  Uh… five, I think.  What can I do for you, Joe?  We can talk right now.  Yeah, I… you know what?  I really appreciate the invite, Joe, but… yeah.  Sounds good.” — Jack Ryan

“Oh, thanks, Teresa.  Yes.  Hold on one second.  Thank you.  Sir, do you have a minute?  I found something you got to see.  These are financial transactions through an app called TracEuro.  You use your cell phone.  Every one of these transactions is linked to this account opened a week and a half ago in a bank in Aden by a Saudi import-export company, but… the business license of that company is less than a month old.  This is a shell.  So, six SWIFT transactions have come through in the last eight days.  They total over $9 million.  Of all the other accounts that I’ve been monitoring, only two have ever gone above six figures, and barely.  Maybe he doesn’t even care about drawing attention, because whatever he’s planning, he’s ready now.  This is it.  We got him.  Sir, he’s real.  I promise you he is real.  Don’t you think there are people on the seventh floor that would have loved this opportunity 20 years ago the first time they heard the name ‘bin Laden?’  All I’m asking is order a demarche, freeze the account.  I’m not there yet?  S… sir?  9/11 cost half a million dollars.  If he is real, what do you think he can do with 20 times that amount of money?  We have to chase this down.  Once the money’s gone, he’s gone.  I promise you that.  Just order the demarche and freeze the account.” — Jack Ryan

“He’s hesitating because he’s scared.  Do you know how badly you have to screw up to go from Chief of Base to the head of T-FAD?  He can’t make another mistake.  He knows that.  Treasury.  I know.  You don’t work for Greer.  Treasury’s its own thing.  Honestly, though, I don’t want you to do it if you’re uncomfortable.  I just.. I don’t know.  I get so frustrated when people say Treasury doesn’t do anything.  You know?  Was that it?  Oh.  Good job.  That was Treasury’s call.  Listen, if you’re worried about this blowing back on you, don’t.  Okay?  I’ll take full responsibility.  Almost four years.  How many people you know walk away from $9 million?  That money means everything to him.  Yeah.  Or we could’ve just watched the front door of the bank while they walked out, pulled off the next 9/11, and we didn’t do a thing.” — Jack Ryan

“Happy birthday, Joe.  Thank you.  So, ‘just a few friends,’ huh?  Yeah.  Sure. All right, so you got me down here– what is it you want to talk about?  I bet there is.  Listen, Joe, I appreciate… Joe… I left Wall Street for a reason.  I’m not coming back.  Jesus, Joe.  Whoa.  You got the wrong guy.  I’m not that kind of State Department.  That’s not quite how it works.  Joe… I wish I could help you.  Could I have a beer, please?  Uh… you… you heard that?  Well, at least I’m not an asshole, right?  I’m Jack.  Cathy.  Cathy Mueller?  Oh, no.  You are Joe’s daughter.  Not technically, no.  Joe used to have picture of you behind his desk.  I think you’d graduated med school, your hair was… longer then.  Listen, what I said about your dad… so, are you a doctor?  Whereabouts?  Wow.  That sounds… a little bit.  State Department.  I run, uh, supply chain logistics for the Western Hemisphere.  Boring?  For what?  Okay, I… hold on a sec.  Um… I don’t know, maybe I could… yeah.  What the hell’s going on?  Suleiman?  Wait, you said S.A.D., but I didn’t order any surveillance.  I thought you said I wasn’t ‘there yet.’  Well, how come you couldn’t have said that, instead of throwing me out of your office?  Whoa, whoa, whoa.  What?  N-no.  You– I can’t go to Yemen.  I’m an analyst.  I don’t interrogate people; I write reports.” — Jack Ryan

“Thanks.  How you doing?  Economics.  Oh, I’m an analyst.  Global markets, mostly.  Financial aberrations, stuff like that.  Tips?  Did you say one of ’em had a phone?  Same number as the transfers.  I’ve been at this for four hours.  I need some air.  Where do I get something to eat?” — Jack Ryan

“Thank you, Corporal.  That’s all.  Go ahead.  It’s not poison.  Earlier, when I mentioned money transfers, you looked up.  I assume you understand me now.  Soufan, that’s a, um, Lebanese name, isn’t it?  You’re my first one, actually.  How am I doing?  I’m an analyst.  Well, it means I work behind a desk.  What about you, Soufan, what do you do?  How’d you get those scars on your hands?  In Lebanon?  The other man… Rahbini.  How do you know him?  You work for him a lot?  What do you know about him?  But you do listen.  Soufan.  Have you ever heard the name ‘Suleiman?'” — Jack Ryan

“Shoot me.  I drop this and we all die.  No.  No.  I’m not.  I thought you were a bodyguard.  It’s you.  Suleiman.” — Jack Ryan

“He’s not ISIS.  That is to say, he may have been, but… if he was, he’s not anymore.  I was just following the money, sir.  Groups like ISIS– they make most of their money from smuggling or seized oil reserves in Iraq and Syria.  They move that money through hawala networks.  It’s all done analog, meaning the money’s literally handed from one person to another.  The account we froze was from a European bank.  I mean, it was funded by multiple transfers from phony LLCs.  The money’s been washed so many times, there’s no way we could locate just one source.” — Jack Ryan

“I don’t believe that.  I believe you can make a difference without having to make those kind of compromises.” — Jack Ryan

“Do you do this often?  Kidnapping innocent people off the street and interrogate them.  What does that mean?  Mm-hmm.  I’m a bodyguard.  It’s an old wound from when I was a boy.  He’s my client.  First time.  Actually, I don’t talk much to my clients.  It’s a common name here.  I’m afraid you’ll have to be more specific.” — Mousa Bin Suleiman

“Watch out behind the door!  Get up!  He’s bluffing.  Don’t shoot.  Get the keys from the soldier.  Move to the door.  I thought you were an analyst.” — Mousa Bin Suleiman

“My brothers in God: Our prophet… was honest and humble.  He set a good example for us.  But this man… he was never a good example for you.  He enjoyed the lavishes of life… and never cared for your interests.  Instead of being a good shepherd… he acted like a wolf.” — Mousa Bin Suleiman

“My brothers in God: I promise you… we have to be united… to defeat the enemy… and get back our land.  So if you give me your trust… I swear to you that… we’ll all be living under the faith of Islam.  All of us.  Together!  We’ll create the greatest Islamic empire!” — Mousa Bin Suleiman

“Peace be upon you.  Come here, you.  How are you?  What?  You don’t like my new look?  Nobody did anything to me.  The whole story is, I’ve met some people here.  And thank God.  God helped me.  Ever since our parents died, I’ve never felt like I belonged anywhere.  Until now.  My body is in prison, yes.  This is the first time I felt that my mind and soul… are free.  I want every Muslim to feel that sense of belonging that I feel.  God has put me on a path to realize that.  And he’s going to show me the way.  I promise you… everything will be different when I get out.  Peace be with you.” — Mousa Bin Suleiman

“My brothers in God… as you know, you came to me from all over to be an example of a new order.  Those of you who follow God’s will… will have for generations to come the pride and recognition that it all started with you.  May peace be with you in the name of God most merciful.” — Mousa Bin Suleiman

“Come here, son.  I have some news for you.  Your sisters are coming home.  But your mother is not.  Your mother decided to leave us.  She went to live with the enemy.  Allah punished her for this.  The enemy… killed your mother.  May God have mercy on her.  Samir.  We’re going to take revenge.  They’re going to pay a high price.  A very high price.” — Mousa Bin Suleiman


James Greer, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon, Amazon Studios, Paramount Television, Skydance Media, Platinum Dunes, Push Boot., Genre Arts, Wendell PierceJames Greer

“Watch it, shithead.  Long.  I took a boat out to Nags Head.  Did some fishing.  Yeah.  Mm-hmm.  I wouldn’t know.  I’ve only seen her once at her lawyer’s.  Hmm.  It’s a backwater post, Nate.  And we both know it.  Morning.  I’m James Greer.  I’m your new group chief.  Why don’t we got around the table, just stand up, introduce yourselves, and tell me what you’re working on.  Let’s start with you.  Very well.  Your turn, Lance Armstrong.  And…?  Suspicious?  How so?  What’s your concern?  What’s at issue?  Hmm.  Which one?  Who is he?  That’s it?  They heard a name?  What else have they said?  Wow.  A brand new bin Laden on my first day.  Who would have thunk it?  So how come you’re the only one that know about this mystery man?  Mm-hmm.  Next.” — Jim Greer

“For you, Bright Boy, I got five.  Come in.  What have you got?  What am I looking at?  Yeah, they were using that in Karachi before I left.  Okay.  Large transactions attract attention.  Why go big now and risk popping up on our radar?  ‘He?’  You mean Suleiman.  You’re not there yet.  Is there anything else?” — Jim Greer

“Greer.  Pete.  You’re talking to him.  What can I do for you?  I didn’t order a demarche.  I’ll call you right back.  Ryan.  My office.  Now.  Shut the door.  I told you to stand the fuck down, and you went behind my back and froze that account.  Oh, bullshit!  The ink on that demarche may be theirs, but this was your idea.  Oh, is that what you think?  That I’m trying to protect my career?  Look around.  That ship has sailed.  And let me ask you something.  You’ve been doing this for how long?  Oh, ‘almost four years.’  Holy shit.  That’s, like… wow.  I am impressed.  Now, let’s say that you’re actually right and Suleiman or Casper the Friendly Ghost or whoever the fuck actually exists.  What do you think he does when he finds out a state entity has frozen his bank account?  He cuts bait and you get nothing!  I agree.  Which is why we could’ve sat on that bank, tracked every courier who came and went, and wrapped up the whole goddamn network.  Get the fuck out of my office.” — Jim Greer

“Greer.  What’s the matter?  You don’t like flying?  The account you froze– S.A.D. and Yemeni PSO picked up somebody.  No.  A couple of couriers, they think.  I did.  You weren’t.  But that doesn’t mean you were wrong.  Because I don’t know you.  And I don’t answer to you.  Now, S.A.D. and the Yemenis are gonna run the interrogation.  But you’re the one that knows all this financial shit, so I need you there to make sure they know what questions to ask.  Why not?  Well, that’s gonna make a doozy.  Get on the fucking plane.” — Jim Greer

“Thanks for the ride.  Matice, this is Dr. Ryan.  No.  Back at Langley.  Yeah.  Hey, Archie.  Leave your merit badges at the door.  What is a Saudi doing in Aden?  Where you going?  Back in the room.  Behind the door.  Post.  We need to secure the front gate!  Fuck!  We need armor!  Yeah!” — Jim Greer

“Meaning these assholes have their shit wired extremely tight.  Now look, we all know part of ISIS’s M.O. is attention.  If they did this, why haven’t they claimed it?” — Jim Greer

“There is no version of this job that doesn’t require compromise, not if you want to do something that matters.  I know you do, ’cause once, a long time ago, I used to believe the same fucking thing.” — Jim Greer

“Make that two.  Way to really piss off the host.  Just the last part.  I especially liked it when he called you a ‘self-righteous Boy Scout.’  Fair enough.  Cathy.  Have we met?  Being an asshole?  Don’t worry about it.  Washington Memorial.  I specialize in infectious diseases.  Disgusting?  And what about you?  That sounds…” — Cathy Mueller

“Scared?  Greer?  Even if you’re right, you don’t have the authority to write a demarche.  Okay?  That’s… Jack.” — Layla Navarro
