From the Inside Flap
America ’s biggest national security threat just might be the president of the
Sound shocking it’s meant to be; but unfortunately, it’s not the plot of a White House thriller: it’s real life. Bestselling military analyst Buzz Pattersonwho once served in the White House as the president’s senior military aide responsible for the nuclear football”has seen presidential irresponsibility before. But what he reveals about President Barack Obama is even more disturbing than what he witnessed in the White House of Bill Clinton.
From Obama’s bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia, the Communist president of China, and the emperor of Japan, to his America apology tour,” his refusal to identify radical Islam as the enemy in the war on terror, his unilateral withdrawal of a planned missile defense shield from Eastern Europe, and his administration’s public downgrading of our special relationship” with Great Britain, Barack Obama’s foreign policy seems to be never to stand up for America, but always to retreat from leadership, appease our enemies, and insult our alliesand even our own military.
Barack Obama is only the second president since the Second World War to have no military experience; as commander in chief in a time of war, that lack of experience could be deadly. In Conduct Unbecoming, you’ll learn:
Why Obama could willfully lose the war on terror
Why Obama will never be a centrist” Democrat
How the Obama administration’s rules of engagement” in Afghanistan are costing American lives
How the Obama administration’s aggressive push to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” could lead to countless lawsuits and the loss of up to a quarter of our armed forces
BONUS: The Obama administration’s official national security strategyidentifying climate change” and not radical Islam as a threat to national security
PLUS: Are You Safer?” a complete rundown of the foreign policy failures of the Obama administration
Incisive and comprehensive, Conduct Unbecoming is the most important book yet written on how Barack Obama is endangering our national security.
From the Back Cover
Praise for Conduct Unbecoming
Buzz Patterson thought he’d seen it all as the military aide to President Bill Clinton. Turns out, he was wrong, Barack Obama is worse, much worse, and his failures as America’s commander in chief are profoundly affecting the U.S. military and our ability to win the great ideological battle with Islamic extremism. Read this book. It will educate you and shock you at the same time. Brilliant read.”
General Thomas G. McInerney, FOX News military analyst and bestselling co-author of Endgame: The Blueprint for Victory in the War on Terror
Praise for Lt. Col. Patterson’s New York Times bestseller Reckless Disregard
Humorist P. J. O’Rourke has said that putting Democrats in charge of foreign policy is like giving the car keys and a bottle of whiskey to a teenager. Buzz Patterson explains here why this is no joke.”
Steven F. Hayward, author of The Age of Reagan and The Real Jimmy Carter
Buzz Patterson’s words are harsh, but his conclusion is inescapable. Today’s Democrats cannot be trusted with America’s defense.”
Jed Babbin, former deputy undersecretary of Defense and author of Inside the Asylum and co-author of Showdown
Praise for Lt. Col. Patterson’s New York Times bestseller Dereliction of Duty
Patterson portrays a president too self-absorbed to take the time to handle many military decisions, a first family who viewed military aides as waiters, and a national security operation so weak that it forced many officers to quit.”
—Paul Bedard, White House Weekly

Barack Obama had NEVER been in an environment where America's exceptionalism was appreciated. He went from Community Organizer to Ivy League all the while spending time with Radical Leftist organizations, and "palling around with Terrorists". Mr. Patterson's presents this idea very well when speaking about Pres. Obama's views of gays in the military. Like his Democrat predecessors, Pres. Obama views the military as a government bureaucracy perfect for social engineering and experimentation in Leftist causes. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" should be repealed as a way to 'emasculate' the military, just as he has emasculated the CIA, amongst other organizations. Moreover, chopping the military budget to pre-9/11 days is just more of an example of his discomfort with all things military, and his increasingly unease being around strong men and anything masculine!
In 'Dereliction of Duty' we could only (after the fact) shake our heads in disbelief at the misconduct of the Commander in Chief. But in 'Conduct Unbecoming', Patterson supplies us with real-time information that we can use to effectively win over the non-believer. The book has terrific timelines of both the terror war and 44's missteps.
If you're a concerned American that wants our country back on the right path and you'd like to be armed with the facts - this book is a must read. Thanks Buzz!
However, if you want to understand how deep the roots of radicalism are in Obama and why he has governed as radically as he has, this book will be most interesting to you. If you also want to understand how the radical transformation Obama has been trying to push on America is dangerous for our security, I think you will find this book valuable.
The first two chapters explore the radical influences Obama that shaped Obama's youth and the radical associations he brought with him to the Whitehouse. This is very valuable information, especially the exposure of the vast influence of George Soros, and I wish it had been more explicitly stated during his run for office. But everyone was so busy painting him as a moderate they had this stuff under a coat of whitewash.
The next two chapters contrast Obama's image for intelligence, sophistication, and persuasiveness with the reality of his ineptitude, brittleness, crassness, divisiveness, and penchant for force against political opponents and appeasement for our nation's enemies. He would rather bow to foreign leaders than reach across the aisle and compromise his radical agenda.
Chapter 5 explains why using the military as a social experiment in trying to normalize societal attitudes towards homosexuality is dangerous to our security.Read more ›
One great addition to this book is a lengthy explanation that the majority of the Jurassic Press are far too afraid to cover, in fear of being labeled Islamophobic, racist or otherwise intolerant. In an appendix, Patterson provides a very thorough timeline of "The Long War", listing events that you are sure to remember and a great many more that will have slipped your mind due to time passed. This listing provides to the other part of Patterson's extensive background: National Security.Read more ›
