Explanation Offered for Title of Upcoming Nonfiction Book

“Clap on! Clap off!”

If you’re old enough to remember the television commercials featuring those four words repeated over and over again, you can take comfort in the fact that my upcoming second nonfiction book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, has nothing to do with “The Clapper®,” a sound-activated electrical device introduced to Americans in 1986.

Instead, THE CLAPPER MEMO has everything to do with subject matter far more serious and involves a man by the name of James R. Clapper Jr., the man President Barack Obama nominated to serve as our nation’s fourth Director of National Intelligence in 2010. In that role, he serves as both the leader of the United States Intelligence Community and the principal intelligence advisor to the president of the United States.

THE CLAPPER MEMO is packed with never-before-published details gleaned from interviews of people who served in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Guantanamo Bay and Mexico, fighting in a little-known war now in its fourth decade.

About BobMcCarty

A native of Enid, Oklahoma, Bob McCarty graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in journalism in 1984. During the next two decades, he served stints as an Air Force public affairs officer, a political campaign manager, a technology sales consultant and a public relations professional. Today, Bob spends most of his time researching topics, writing about them and publishing those writings. When he’s not writing online, he’s working as an author. Bob’s first published book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (October 2011), chronicles the life story and wrongful conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran. In his second book, THE CLAPPER MEMO (May 2013), Bob connects the dots between a memo signed by James R. Clapper Jr. — the man now serving as our nation’s top intelligence official — and the deaths of dozens of Americans in Afghanistan at the hands of our so-called Afghan “allies” wearing the uniforms of their nation’s military, police and security forces. Bob is married, has three sons and lives in the St. Louis area. Bob is available for media and blogger interviews.
