This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The Arab terrorists are beheaded in Saudi Arabia. Ryan witnesses their death and is given the sword used for that purpose. This event inspires Ryan's future Secret Service nickname of SWORDSMAN. This doesn't happen.
   This doesn't happen. Ryan and Clark infiltrate a Ukrainian missile lab.
   The nuclear bomb fizzles because it was detonated before the East German scientist was able to purify the plutonium (he was killed by his terrorist comrades before he could inform them.) It's never explained why the bomb fizzles.
   Cabot is white. Cabot is black.
   President Fowler is a widower. President Fowler's wife is alive.
