This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   John Clark finds out about Cutter's betrayal through Jack and Ritter. John Clark threatens to kill Cutter. John Clark finds out about Cutter's betrayal through Ritter, who claims that Jack was the one to pull the plug on the operation. John Clark threatens to kill Jack, to which Cutter replies that once Jack is gone, the operation is back online.
   Jack goes to Colombia once: to save the abandoned troops. Jack goes to Colombia twice: to uncover the connection between the yacht owner and the Cartel, and another time to rescue the troops.
   About 2/3 of the US troops in Colombia are killed; only one is taken prisoner and doesn't survive. The rescue operation is merely a pickup, and Jack doesn't leave the helicopter. Escobedo and Cortez are captured alive. All of the US troops in Colombia except for Ding Chavez are killed or captured. Jack, Clark, and Ding go on the ground to Escobedo's mansion to locate the prisoners. In the ensuing firefight, Escobedo and Cortez are both killed.
   Jack never meets with either Escobedo or Cortez, although he is on the same boat as them at the end of the book. Jack meets Escobedo in his mansion and fights Cortez in the coffee factory.
   Jack tells the President that he will not lie to cover up the operation. Jack agrees to cover up the names of those who were merely acting under the President's orders. The President deliberately loses re-election to put the incident to rest. Jack tells the President he will not lie to cover up the operation. Furthermore, he testifies before Congress about the entire incident.
