Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson exposes the terrifying, behind-the-scenes story of the years when the most irresponsible President in our history had his finger on the nuclear trigger. Dereliction of Duty is the inside story of the damage Bill Clinton did to the U.S. military and how he compromised our national security. From his laughable salutes, to his arrogant, anti-military staffers, the message came through loud and clear: the Clinton Administration had nothing but contempt for America’s men and women in uniform.

For two years, Patterson was the White House military aide who carried the “nuclear football,” which provides the President with remote nuclear strike capabilities. What he witnessed is shocking. In Dereliction of Duty, Patterson reveals:

How Clinton missed a golden opportunity to take out Osama bin Laden long before September 11, 2001
Why a minor “family matter” caused the Clintons to scramble a military jet
How a young Clinton staffer tried to divert a full Navy carrier battle group just so the President could have a photo-op
Why female stewards on Air Force One had to keep their distance from the President

But that’s not all. Colonel Patterson reveals that Clinton treated our nation’s most sensitive secrets and powerful weapons with cavalier disregard, while his aides regarded the military as just another tool for domestic politics.

Dereliction of Duty is the book every American concerned about our national security has been waiting for—written by a military man who was an eyewitness inside the Clinton White House, and who can no longer in good conscience keep silent.


This book was a real eye opener.


This book makes you think how little the people really know about our leaders at times. Having been written by a person who had actual knowledge of events and times. It is a must read.
