Experts Cited in Washington Post Would Agree With Book Critical of Nation’s Top Intelligence Official

In the wake of last week’s deadly shooting rampage at the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard, Defense Department officials have ordered a review of security clearance procedures, according to a Washington Post report that includes comments in line with the findings of my latest nonfiction book, THE CLAPPER MEMO.

TheClapperMemoFrontCoverLR 6-5-13THE CLAPPER MEMO is the product of an exhaustive four-year investigation that included my discovery of a critical memo written by James R. Clapper Jr., now our nation’s top intelligence official.  Released in May, it reveals how more than four decades of poor decision-making by polygraph loyalists inside the federal government — namely, the Departments of Defense and Justice — has yielded bad, often-deadly results.

Among those bad results:  an ever-increasing number of “Green-on-Blue” attacks against U.S. and Coalition Forces personnel in Afghanistan; and a realization that 28 percent of the people once held as detainees at Guantanamo Bay returned to their terrorist ways after being released.

To learn more about my disturbing findings, read the BASICS of THE CLAPPER MEMO, then order a copy of the book.  You’ll be glad you did!
