Soldiers Would Be Safer If Not For Memo

U.S. Army Special Forces Soldiers shown in the video below are not as safe as they would be if then-Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. had not signed a memo five years ago.

In THE CLAPPER MEMO, set for release this fall, I connect the dots between the memo singed by Clapper — now the nation’s top intelligence official — and the deaths of dozens of Americans in Afghanistan at the hands of their so-called “allies” — members of the Afghan National Security Force — since the memo was signed. NOW AVAILABLE!

‘The CLAPPER MEMO’ Gaining Pre-Release Attention

The CLAPPER MEMO, my soon-to-be-released second nonfiction book is gaining traction.  Today, my latest update about the book appeared at’s Big Peace website under the headline, ‘THE CLAPPER MEMO’: NEW BOOK SHOWS HOW BUREAUCRATIC AFGHANISTAN POLICY KILLS U.S. SOLDIERS.’

Mind you, I don’t write the headlines, so let me clarify something:  The policy that plays a major roll in the “green-on-blue” killings of American and NATO troops by their so-called “allies” in the Afghan National Security Force members applies throughout the Department of Defense, not just in Afghanistan.

I recommend you read the article and then, while you wait for the The CLAPPER MEMO to be released this fall, order a copy of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice.

Information Warfare Begins Anew As Book’s Publication Nears

It appears as if someone is worried about the content of my next book, The CLAPPER MEMO, going public.  In other words, information warfare has begun anew.

TheClapperMemoFrontCoverLR 6-5-13Since posting a photo of the book’s cover in a May 25 post, Coming This Fall…, and following it with posts (1) announcing the release of the book’s trailer and (2) providing more details, the website where two of the above-referenced posts were cross-posted — my main site, — has been deluged with comment spam of the most-vile variety.

Do you think I’m paranoid for attributing this deluge to the content of the book?  Think again!  The same thing happened to me 18 months ago following an eight-day span during which I had published three articles related to the subject matter that will appear prominently in the book.  [NOTE:  I've marked the aforementioned articles as "private" and, thereby, made them inaccessible to site visitors -- including those who might want to know more about what's inside the book so they can prepare their disinformation campaigns about it.]

Do I think James R. Clapper Jr., the man whose name helps form the title of the book, has anything to do with the spamming of my site?  Let’s just say that, although I’m not willing to point a finger directly at him, I am painfully aware that he has access to a formidable arsenal of capabilities as our nation’s Director of National Intelligence.

If anyone wants to find out what’s inside The CLAPPER MEMO, they’re gonna have to be satisfied with watching the trailer below until the book is released this fall.

While waiting for The CLAPPER MEMO to be published, check out my first book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice.
