The 300-plus-page manuscript for my soon-to-be-published second nonfiction book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, is in the hands of a skilled attorney, undergoing a thorough legal review.
Some hints about the book:
• In THE CLAPPER MEMO, I’ll share details of a 40-year technological turf war involving many players. Inside the Pentagon. At some of the nation’s top universities. In places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Guantanamo Bay and Mexico. And in local and state police jurisdictions across the United States.
• In THE CLAPPER MEMO, I’ll share never-before-published documents and insider details obtained from the very people who interrogated detainees at Guantanamo Bay and from the very people who interrogated members of Saddam Hussein’s “Deck of Cards.”
• In THE CLAPPER MEMO, I’ll connect the dots between three memos — including one signed in 2007 by James R. Clapper Jr. — and the “Green-on-Blue” attacks (a.k.a., “insider attacks”) by so-called “allies” in Afghanistan against their U.S. and coalition colleagues.
• After four years of work on THE CLAPPER MEMO, I found all roads lead back to the technological turf war and to the memo signed by Clapper — then serving as Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, now serving as Director of National Intelligence, our nation’s highest intelligence official.
Hopefully, the manuscript will receive his legal “blessing” within a week or two, enabling me to move forward toward publication. Stay tuned!
Meanwhile, be sure to read my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice. It’s available in paperback and ebook via most online booksellers, including Amazon.com.
