‘Black Budget’ Docs Share Much In Common With New Book

After reading the flurry of reports about the so-called “Black Budget” documents obtained by the Washington Post from National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, I can’t help but think about how so many of the topics discussed in the controversial documents resemble and/or overlap with what I uncovered during the exhaustive four-year investigation that led me to write my second nonfiction book, THE CLAPPER MEMO.

During my investigation into the use of polygraph and non-polygraph credibility assessment technologies, I discovered absurdities that make some of the Black Budget findings look like child’s play by comparison.  Some cost American warfighters their lives.

Clapper Jr., the man now overseeing a 17-agency Intelligence Community as Director of National Intelligence (i.e., our nation’s top intelligence official).

You can learn more about the absurdities I uncovered by reading THE CLAPPER MEMO, a book which has received a number of high-profile endorsements since its release in May.  The book is available in paperback and ebook versions.
