The first five-star customer review of THE CLAPPER MEMO appeared online yesterday under the headline, Blockbuster – A Must Read for Those Fighting Terrorism. The wording of that review, submitted by “Case Officer,” appears unedited below except for minor formatting changes:
Bob McCarty has connected the dots to a story that otherwise would not have seen the light of day. He has exposed the ongoing and unceasing activities of a small group of US government bureaucrats that should outrage the entire US population.
It is unconscionable that administration-after-administration has allowed this national disgrace to continue unabated for the past 50 years. The safety and security of our military members should trump the agenda of a handful of power hungry bureaucrats. The absolute faith by these bureaucrats in a scientifically flawed device – namely the polygraph – appears to have caused significant damage to the international reputation and security of the United States.
Further, the stamp of approval given to the polygraph by the US government appears to have also caused serious damage to other nations as well – Iraq, Afghanistan and Mexico to name a few. The true extent of the damage caused by polygraph will perhaps never be known, since the US government does not publicly admit to such gross maleficence and failures. However, the cases brought to light by Bob McCarty are a damning indictment against continued support of the polygraph by the US government.
It is amazing that otherwise world-class agencies such as the FBI, CIA, DOD, and DHS continue to rely on a 100 year old technology that is scientifically proven to be worthless for intelligence screening operations. This book should be required reading for all involved in the “War on Terror” both at home and abroad. Bob McCarty should be commended for exposing this pseudoscientific government-backed fraud.
