- David Bowers was the president in the 2007 timeline. Although Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon series says that James Ballantine is President in 2013/2014, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist has Patricia Caldwell get re-elected during that time-frame. In Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon novel, in 2011 there is said to be a male president implied to be Ballantine, but going by the larger Tom Clancy universe timeline, it should be Caldwell, a woman. Additionally, both Daniel Sullivan and David Becerra are said to be President in 2021, the former in Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. and the latter in Tom Clancy's EndWar.
