I NEED YOU TO MAKE A PHONE CALL!  Please call Brentin V. Evitt — at 703-735-6317 or 301-394-5268 — and ask him why officials at the Defense Intelligence Agency have refused to provide copies of the unclassified documents I requested in a Freedom of Information Act request more than 18 months ago!

DIA Return Address on EnvelopeMore specifically, you can ask Evitt, who serves as the DIA’s Deputy General Counsel for Mission Services in the Office of the General Counsel, why his agency has, since June 16, 2012, refused to provide me copies of the unclassified documents described in the paragraph below:

“…copies of any and all initial and follow-up contracts (i.e., solicitations, contracts, statements of work and task orders) related to the Portable Credibility Assessment Screening System (PCASS) or Preliminary Credibility Assessment Screening System (PCASS) that have been awarded by any Department of Defense Agency to Lafayette Instrument Company of Lafayette, Indiana, and any other contractors, academic institutions, laboratories and subcontractors from January 1, 2000, to present.”

TheClapperMemoFrontCoverLR 6-5-13If he’s not there, leave a message, but go easy on him.  As far as I know, Evitt is only responsible for the last 41 days of stonewalling (and not returning my phone calls).  But I digress.

Why do I want these documents?  Because the information they contain will shed much additional light on the “turf war” I uncovered that’s been raging for more than 40 years between polygraph loyalists and all challengers to their “bread and butter” technology and, to the detriment of many, it shows no signs of letting up.

The product of an exhaustive four-year investigation, THE CLAPPER MEMO is available in paperback and ebook versions and has been endorsed by several high-profile Americans who understand the implications of my findings. Order your copy today!

FYI:  In the past, I would have advised those of you who don’t want DIA officials to know who you are when you call to dial *67 before dialing the phone number.  With the recent NSA eavesdropping scandals, I suspect dialing *67 will make little difference.

About BobMcCarty

A native of Enid, Oklahoma, Bob McCarty graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in journalism in 1984. During the next two decades, he served stints as an Air Force public affairs officer, a political campaign manager, a technology sales consultant and a public relations professional.

Bob’s first published book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (October 2011), chronicles the life story and wrongful conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran. In his second book, THE CLAPPER MEMO (May 2013), Bob connects the dots between a memo signed by James R. Clapper Jr. — the man now serving as our nation’s top intelligence official — and the deaths of dozens of Americans in Afghanistan at the hands of our so-called Afghan “allies” wearing the uniforms of their nation’s military, police and security forces.
