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.

Intel Chief Remains in Post One Year After Call for His Ouster

One year ago at about this time, six members of Congress called for Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. to resign after lying to Congress about the National Security Agency’s data collection programs. Today, however, he remains at the helm of the nation’s Intelligence Community.

Unbeknownst to most Americans, another reason exists to justify calls for DNI Clapper’s resignation. I document that reason in my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo. The book not only reveals irrefutable evidence of his wrongdoing, but it also reveals never-before-published details from the interrogations of Guantanamo Bay detainees, Saddam Hussein’s “Deck of Cards” and others, including Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters in war zones.

If this list of high-profile endorsements doesn’t convince you to order a copy of The Clapper Memo — the product of four years of exhaustive research — perhaps these reasons will.

American Sniper: My Reasons for Watching Unique

Though I’ve heard much about it and plan to see it one day, my reasons for watching American Sniper will be different than yours. In fact, one might say, they’ll be unique.

What will make my reasons for watching the blockbuster film unique? For starters, I wrote my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August, about an American sniper.

In the book, I tell the story of a Green Beret medic, intelligence operator and Level One sniper (i.e., the highest level of DoD sniper) whose toughest battle had nothing to do with taking out enemy combatants with expertly-calculated shots covering great distances. Instead, he fought the military justice system.

Though I interviewed this warrior at length and on several occasions following his release from the U.S. Military Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., I do not recall ever speaking with him at length about his experiences as a sniper. Why? Because we had “bigger fish to fry.”

The book is based largely upon what I uncovered during more than 18 months of investigation that included studying case documents and perusing the official Record of Trial (a.k.a., “trial transcript”). Likewise, it’s based upon details gleaned during the aforementioned interviews. The book does, however, contain some details of this highly-decorated combat veteran‘s time in combat. You can read some of them in the book excerpt, “You always hope somebody’s got your back,” which I published Dec. 31.

Though Three Days In August hasn’t been turned into a movie yet, many people who’ve read it say it should find its way to the silver screen. I’ll let you decide.

After you read the aforementioned excerpt, I hope you’ll order a copy of Three Days In August and, after reading it, let me know if you think it should be turned into a feature film. Thanks in advance!

UPDATE 2/25/2015 at 1:26 p.m. Central:  A friend sent me a link to an article published under the headline, The Making of a Real American Sniper. It helps explain what Kelly Stewart told me as highlighted in the blue portion of this article‘s lead paragraph. Hope you’ll read and share.

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.

For a snapshot of Stewart’s situation today and to find out how you can help, read this Open Letter to Any American and/or read this recent article. Thanks in advance!

Fictional Superheroes: Wonder Woman, Polygraph Machine

An article about Jill Lepore’s recently-released book, The Secret History of Wonder Woman, caught my attention today for two reasons: first, I was a teenage boy when the “Wonder Woman” television series launched; and, second, I developed more than a passing interest in a technology, still in use today, that was developed by the same man who created the fictional superhero.

Again, why did it catch my attention? Because it mentions the fact that the creator of the Wonder Woman character is none other than William Moulton Marston, the same man credited with developing the now-century-old polygraph machine.

One paragraph in the article, in particular, caught my eye:

Coincidentally I was reading a book called Born Liars: Why We Can’t Live Without Deceit when this hefty tome rocked up, and was just embarking on the section about Marston himself. Describing him as ‘irrepressibly optimistic’, it goes on to claim that the lie detector, or ‘polygraph machine’ as it was more pompously known, was so useless that in 1986 when Aldrich Ames, a CIA operative spying for the USSR, informed his paymasters that the government intended to give him a routine polygraph test, they simply advised him to get a good night’s sleep and relax. He did so and passed — and passed again, in 1991, when the CIA were carrying out a search for an internal mole (i.e. Ames himself).

Writer Julie Burchill’s explanation above of how the polygraph was a colossal failure, especially when it comes to catching people like notorious CIA spy Aldrich Ames, jives with what I shared in both a previous article and in my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, which is based upon four years of exhaustive investigative work. Her mention of Marston’s name in the next paragraph, along with the phrase, “snake-oil salesman,” surely made me laugh.

Despite facts like the one involving Aldrich, the Department of Defense continues to rely on the polygraph as its only credibility assessment technology authorized for use by its employees. Why? Because, as I explained in a piece three days ago, people like Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. worked hard — and went against the advice and counsel of military and intelligence experts on the ground — to ban the use of a more-reliable and more-effective credibility assessment technology.

To learn more about this non-polygraph technology, order a copy of The Clapper Memo.

To learn what others think about the book, read some of the high-profile endorsements it has received.
