A mildly-courageous few — among them, a congressman from Michigan and a senator from Kentucky — have urged President Barack Obama to ask for James R. Clapper’s immediate resignation after the nation’s top intelligence official admitted he lied under oath. None, however, have asked for the spymaster’s proverbial “head on a platter.” And then there’s me!
Going well beyond President Obama’s statement Friday that the Director of National Intelligence “should have been more careful” when testifying before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee March 12, 2013, I released THE CLAPPER MEMO.
My second nonfiction book and the product of an exhaustive four-year investigation, THE CLAPPER MEMO exposes this title-inspiring man’s leading role in preventing U.S. military and intelligence personnel from having access to the best interrogation equipment available. And that’s just the beginning!
Though THE CLAPPER MEMO has yet to gain the kind of attention as Clapper’s lying and spying exploits, it has received glowing endorsements from several high-level individuals who appreciate its implications:
• “THE CLAPPER MEMO by Bob McCarty gives the reader an in-depth look into the dirty little secrets of politics and greed triumphing over safety and security for our fighting men and women as well as the average American citizen.” – BILLY and KAREN VAUGHN, parents of U.S. Navy SEAL Aaron Carson Vaughn and author of the book, BETRAYED: The Shocking True Story of Extortion 17 as told by a Navy SEAL’s Father. Aaron was a member of SEAL Team Six who lost his life along with 29 other Americans when their helicopter, call sign “Extortion 17,” was shot down in Afghanistan Aug. 6, 2011.

• “Bob McCarty has uncovered a high-tech ‘turf war’ pitting those who want the best for our troops against others who seem to be focused on their own self-interests. Sadly, it seems the wrong people are winning this war. I highly recommend THE CLAPPER MEMO.” — MAJ. GEN. PAUL VALLELY (U.S. Army, Ret.), former deputy commander of U.S. Army Pacific.

• “Bob McCarty’s book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, represents perhaps the most thorough investigative reporting I have encountered in years. I direct the attention of the so-called major media to it. This is how it’s done!” — DAVID P. SCHIPPERS, Chief Investigative Counsel during the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. Learn more about his endorsement here.
• “An unconscionable cover-up.” — CAPT. LARRY W. BAILEY (U.S. Navy SEALs, Ret.), former commander of the U.S. Navy SEALs BUD/S Training Program. Learn more about his endorsement here.
