Pentagon ‘Witch Hunt’ Continues as Book About Wrongful Prosecution of Green Beret Marks Fourth Anniversary

Four years ago today, the paperback version of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight for Military Justice, went on sale for the first time. Little has changed, however, when it comes to the Pentagon’s relentless campaign of political correctness (a.k.a., “witch hunt”) to convict any and all men accused of sexual assault, regardless of whether such crimes actually occurred.

In Three Days In August, I not only chronicled the life story of former Army Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, but I dissected the events leading to the false sexual assault allegations made against him by a German woman, the military trial that followed and his conviction in what can only be described as a “kangaroo court-martial.”

Since publishing the book, I’ve become familiar with several other cases of military injustice stemming from false sexual assault allegations. Two of the most-recent ones involve Air Force MSgt. Michael Silva and Army Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin, whose stories I hope you’ll read and share.

Still on sale at Amazon.com, Three Days In August is, in my biased opinion, a must-read book for active-duty, retired and former members of the U.S. military. Likewise, I believe it should be read by anyone who knows someone in the military or who cares about those who serve.

To learn more about the book and read some of the endorsements it has received from people like Pamela Gellar and Richard Miniter, visit ThreeDaysInAugust.com.

Sean Hannity Accomplice to Crime of Military Injustice

When the folks at “The Sean Hannity Show” published an article under the headline, U.S. Army Eating it’s Own: A Green Beret Needs Our Help, my head nearly exploded! Then I concluded Sean Hannity can only be described as an accessory to the crime of military injustice committed by the U.S. Army against one of its own, Sgt. 1st Class Kelly Stewart.

Why? Because I’ve been plugging away for almost four years, trying to get anyone in the mainstream news media — Sean Hannity included — to pay attention to Stewart’s case.

Stewart, a Green Beret medic and Level One sniper, was falsely accused in November 2008 of rape and kidnapping by a then-28-year-old German woman. Nine months later, he was convicted during a military trial that took place during three days in August 2009.

Interestingly, no physical evidence or eyewitnesses were presented by the Army prosecutor during that trial. The guilty verdict seemed to hinge solely on the words of the accuser, a woman who not only spent months in a mental institution prior to meeting Stewart but also stood to gain financially (i.e., her government would compensate her as a “victim of sexual assault”) if Stewart was found guilty. In the end, she made money.

During a post-trial hearing months after the conviction, several individuals who did not know Stewart testified that his accuser had told multiple lies while on the witness stand during the trial. After hearing their testimony, however, the military judge decided to ignore it.

Today, after serving time behind bars at the U.S. Military Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Stewart lives as a convicted sex offender with nothing to show after a stellar career during which he served in places like Kosovo and Iraq and rose to the top one percent of the Army without a single blemish on his record until he was falsely accused.

One would think such a story might interest Hannity, but no.

Even with an inside track to one of Hannity’s radio show producers, whom I don’t hold responsible for Hannity’s poor decisions, Hannity hasn’t devoted a moment of on-air attention to the case of the highly-decorated combat veteran whose life story is chronicled in my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August.

Even with endorsements of the book by New York Times best-selling author Richard Miniter, anti-Islamic terrorism activist and Atlas Shrugs founder Pam Geller, The Band of Mothers founder Beverly Perlson and others, Hannity has opted to ignore the military injustice suffered by this elite Soldier.

Hannity may have high ratings on radio and television, but I’ve turned him off.

New Book Cover Offers Solid Backing for Green Beret’s Story

After more than three years on the market, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldiers’ Fight For Military Justice is getting a remake that involves the addition of four solid endorsements on its back cover.

Coming Soon! A new cover for Three Days In August by Bob McCarty.

Coming Soon! A new cover for Three Days In August by Bob McCarty.

Atop the list of reviews/endorsements that will appear on the new cover is one received from New York Times best-selling author Richard Miniter soon after the book’s October 2011 release. He wrote:

“Well-written and thoroughly researched, Three Days In August paints a convincing portrait of a military justice process that appears to have lacked one essential element – justice.” — Richard Miniter

A second came from Pamela Geller, the founder, editor and publisher of AtlasShrugs.com. In a December 2011 “Books I Like” article, she included the following statement about the book:

“What emerges is a picture of a military establishment that is cowed by political correctness to the extent that it is even willing to throw our fighting men and women to the wolves to appease the Left.” — Pamela Geller

From among the 18 customer reviews of the book that appear on the book’s Amazon page, portions of two will appear on the new back cover of Three Days In August.

A retired Air Force fighter pilot, Lt. Col. J.P. Reilly read the book and the final six words from the paragraph below will appear on the new back cover:

“Anyone who wants insight into the way the military really handles sexual assault cases should read this story, it would be unfortunate if this was an isolated case but it continues to be repeated. A good Soldier destroyed by the system.” — J.P. Reilly

Last, but not least, the words of Beverly Perlson will also appear on the new cover. A staunch supporter of our military troops and founder of The Band Of Mothers, she read the book and the final five words from the paragraph below appear on the new back cover:

“I just finished reading Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice, by Bob McCarty. From the moment I began reading, I couldn’t put it down.” — Beverly Perlson

If you’re interested in learning details about how former Army Green Beret Kelly A. Stewart was railroaded by the military justice system through a trial during which no physical evidence or witnesses were presented by the prosecution, order a copy of Three Days In August.
