New Book Reveals Who’s Siding With U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

If you’re like me, you believe U.S. military and intelligence professionals deserve the very best equipment available when it comes time to interrogate enemy combatants and suspected terrorists and vetting others who work alongside Americans in places like Afghanistan. Unfortunately, many of the 150-plus people mentioned in my recently-published second nonfiction book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, seem to think otherwise.

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.
