While National Security Agency officials might already know the answer to this question, I’m going to ask it anyway: Have you “LIKED” THE CLAPPER MEMO on Facebook? If not, below is a sampling of what you’ve missed so far today:
Re: Fox News article — When I read that the government of Honduras is going to use polygraph exams to weed out cops with ties to organized crime, I couldn’t help but think of how well (NOT!) that has worked in Mexico.
In my latest book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, I devote an entire chapter to crime in Mexico and how one many used a non-polygraph tool to send some 450 members of Mexican drug and kidnapping cartels to prison for an average of 28 years each. Details about the book at http://TheClapperMemo.com/.
Re: NBC News article: I found it amazing how, three days ago, NBC News was so quick to “carry the water” for the Obama Administration on the matter of data collection by the nation’s intelligence agencies. I’m not so quick to do that. Find out why in my book, THE CLAPPER MEMO. Details at http://TheClapperMemo.com/.
Re: The New York Times article: It must have been somewhat unpleasant when Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. learned an employee of a company for which he once worked released information about his Intelligence Community’s collection of massive amounts of private data.
Also unpleasant for DNI Clapper is the content of my latest book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, in which I connect the dots between a memo he issued while serving as Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and hundreds of U.S. and Coalition Forces casualties in Afghanistan.

Re: Greeley (Colo.) Tribune article: I do not know the now-retired police officer highlighted in this story. I do, however, know that many of the high-level Department of Defense officials who make decisions about the use of polygraph technology inside DoD also operate polygraph exam businesses on the side. Deadly conflict of interest? That’s one of many controversial topics I cover in my latest book, THE CLAPPER MEMO. Details at http://TheClapperMemo.com/.
RE: DEEP STATE: Inside the Government Secrecy Industry — Almost 200 pages into their book, authors Marc Ambinder and D.B. Grady cite federal government experts as saying nothing better than the polygraph is available in the credibility assessment arena. Those so-called “experts” are not only wrong, but I prove it in my latest book, THE CLAPPER MEMO. Details at http://TheClapperMemo.com/.
Re: Michigan Capitol Confidential article — Officials with the Michigan Association of Polygraph Examiners are opposed to legislation that, if passed, would get rid of polygraph examiner licensing in that state.
In my book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, I highlight one former Michigan resident’s work as a polygraph expert. In much the same manner as the MAPE folks don’t like the legislation, the man I highlight will not like my book — but you will.
Intrigued? Be sure to “LIKE” THE CLAPPER MEMO on Facebook, so you can keep up with the latest news, information and tidbits related to the book.
THE CLAPPER MEMO is available in paperback and ebook versions at Amazon.
