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.
Sadly, I discovered these absurdities are not rare and can be found throughout top-level government agencies, including the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice — and even inside the office of James R. 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.
I hope you’ll order your copy today!
