YOU Might Be On A Federal Watch List!

Fifteen months after news broke about federal investigators targeting people engaged in the cottage industry of teaching others how to pass polygraph exams, I suspect many who purchased my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, might be on a federal watch list.

Polygraph Exam

Why? Because, according to a report Nov. 14, 2013, officials with multiple federal government agencies confirmed to McClatchy News reporter Marisa Taylor that they had collected and shared the personal information of thousands of Americans in an attempt to root out untrustworthy federal workers.  Specifically, those officials confirmed that people who had no direct ties to the U.S. government and had simply purchased certain books — about polygraph-beating techniques — had been scrutinized.

Perhaps most disturbing is that the government agencies contacted by Taylor said they plan to retain the list of people who purchased the aforementioned books in case any of those on the list take polygraphs for federal jobs or criminal investigations in the future.

Again, I suspect most people who purchased The Clapper Memo, a book in which a person can read about many countermeasures available to defeat the polygraph, have no such direct ties and, therefore, meet the description above.

If you’re tempted to believe it makes sense for government officials to build lists of people based on their book-purchasing habits — for future reference, of course — then I implore you to look deeper into the subject matter by reading The Clapper Memo. The product of an exhaustive four-year investigation into the government’s use of credibility assessment technologies, including the polygraph, the book will open your eyes to troubling decisions made by federal government officials — including Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., the man now serving as our nation’s top intelligence official — that have far-reaching and extremely-dangerous implications for the American people.

Many influential people who read The Clapper Memo were stunned at what they learned.

Capt. Larry W. Bailey, U.S. Navy (Ret.), a former commander of the U.S. Navy’s Basic Underwater Demolition/SEALs (BUD/S) Training Program, believes I have revealed “An unconscionable cover-up.”

Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, U.S. Army (Ret.), former deputy commander, U.S. Army Pacific, said, “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.”

David P. Schippers, U.S. House of Representatives chief investigative counsel during the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, said, “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!”

Others have spoken favorably of the book as well. Click here for details.

Family Members of Fallen Marine File Lawsuit Against DoD

Members of the family left behind by Marine LCpl. Greg Buckley Jr. have filed suit against several Department of Defense entities and individuals, alleging they were systematically misled about the death of their loved one at the hands of an Afghan “ally.”

The complaint, according to a Washington Post report Thursday, was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in New York, and names the Department of Defense, the Navy Department and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service as defendants. In addition, it names Gen. James F. Amos, the soon-to-retire commandant of the Marine Corps as defendants who was in the news last week for other reasons.

News of the lawsuit brings back memories of MaryLiz Grossetto’s response to a question — Should families of U.S. Soldiers be able to sue Department of Defense? — I raised Aug. 23, 2013, and posted on the Facebook page dedicated to her 21-year-old nephew who was killed during a “Green-on-Blue” (a.k.a., “Insider”) attack in Afghanistan Aug. 10, 2012. Excerpts from her response appear below with only minor edits:

Bob, if you had asked anyone in my family that question a year ago I’m pretty sure the answer would have been “NO.”

What a difference a year makes!

A year ago, I would have thought, “God forbid something happens, that’s the risk you were willing to take.”

Of course, a year ago I was under the mistaken impression that this country was doing all it could to protect & provide for our military. Sadly, today I know that is not the case. This administration is more concerned with how the Afghans will perceive things than making sure our own men are as safe as possible.

Having learned a lot during the year since her nephew died, Grossetto asked and answered some pointed questions late in her response:

Did we take measures to ensure our military would be safe? Did we order our men to carry loaded weapons at all times? Did we provide “Guardian Angels” to watch over our soldiers when they were most vulnerable? NO! WHY? Because we were too busy handing out pamphlets & ordering our soldiers to attend “culture & sensitivity training” so our heroes would not “offend” Afghans.

Did we use the best, most advanced equipment when it came to vetting these Afghan soldiers / police? NO!

Have we thoroughly investigated what happened to Extortion 17? NO!

Have we investigated & spoken the truth about Benghazi? NO!

Grossetto concluded her response this way:

So, in answer to your question, I guess we should start suing. Maybe that will help this administration get it’s priorities in order! Until Then, God Help Us All!

After reading my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, Grossetto recognized how I connected the dots between three memos — including one issued by James R. Clapper Jr., now the nation’s top intelligence official — and hundreds of American casualties resulting from Green-on-Blue attacks like the one that killed her nephew. In addition, she offered her endorsement of the book:

“Read this book & you will see how our government has for many, many years deprived our military of the best possible tool for vetting & weeding out the enemy.”MaryLiz Grossetto.

Grossetto’s endorsement joins those of four others, including a former U.S. Navy SEALs commander, a former U.S. Army general, the parents of a member of the U.S. Navy’s SEAL TEAM SIX and the man who served as chief investigative counsel during the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. Read their conclusions about the book here.
