Dereliction of Duty is a weird hybrid of two different genres; one older than the hills, the other newer, but intense.
Patterson bases his conclusions that the Clintons were derelict in their duty towards our troops in the field primarily through his own personal recollection of military morale, and through the various snubs and sneers he received while on duty at the White House.
Dereliction of Duty is a good short summary of the problems with the national defense services on the watch of the Man From Hope, but it is far from comprehensive.

Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Robert "Buzz" Patterson, author of Dereliction of Duty, was a military aide to President Clinton from May 1996 to May 1998 and one of five individuals entrusted with carrying the "nuclear football"--the bag containing the codes for launching nuclear weapons.
Dereliction of Duty is not a personal attack on President Clinton or a commentary on his various scandals; rather, it is a "frank indictment of his obvious—to an eyewitness—failure to lead our country with responsibility and honor." Lt. Col.
A considerable portion of this slim book is devoted to the myriad ways in which President Clinton undermined the military, and hence the security, of the nation.

Dereliction of Duty: Johnson, McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That Led to Vietnam (Paperback)
Dereliction of Duty provides both a thorough exploration of the military's role in determining Vietnam policy and a telling portrait of the men most responsible.
The JCS, unable to overcome crippling inter-service rivalry and torn between offering professional military strategic advice (as they were charged to do under the constitution) and loyalty to a President they rightly perceived as authorising military actions which could only have disastrous results, allowed themselves to be marginalised from the decision-making process.

 The Left Coaster: Dereliction of Duty
For those who believe that they are betraying their commander-in-chief, I want to remind them that those in the military have also sworn an oath: an oath to protect and defend the constitution and they have a duty to speak up when that constitution is under attack.
The unitary President theory that Bush and his cult espouse is a head-on attack on our Constitution especially as we now are seeing how they have already laid the seeds (indeed, funding a terrorist organization) for an illegal and immoral war against Iran.
Dereliction of Duty describes the dereliction on the part of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Vietnam War, who had strong feelings about all the mistakes that were being made, but didn't speak their minds, and didn't speak up, with the exception of former Commandant of the Marine Corps, David Shoup.

 A Dereliction of Duty: Military Officer Shouldn’t Try to be Policymakers by Mackubin T. Owens   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-01)
Many of Rumsfeld’s critics have invoked the very important book by H. McMaster, Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That Led to Vietnam, the subject of which is how the Joint Chiefs failed to challenge Defense Secretary Robert McNamara adequately during the Vietnam War.
The misreading of Dereliction of Duty reinforces the increasingly widespread belief among officers that they should be advocates of particular policies rather than simply serving in their traditional advisory role.
There is, as well, a practical political problem resulting from such actions on the part of retired officers: a loss of confidence and trust in the military institution by the American people.

The Clintons are finally gone from the White House and Al Gore was defeated in his presidential bid but that doesn't mean we can forget these people or their dereliction of duty while they stood at the head of this nation.
And there are plenty of Democrats at the state and local levels who follow the Clinton creed: increase taxes, increase interfering bureaucracy, undermine the rule of law, divide Americans against each other, and thwart the reasonable use of the military in our defense and funding its strength -- whenever possible.

A swarm of new media stories on young George W. Bush's dereliction of duty pops his heroic-leadership bubble.
On Feb. 13, as controversy swirled around President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, the White House released more than 400 pages of documents on the press corps, proving, it claimed, that Bush had served honorably and fulfilled his commitment.
The fraudulent points are key, because without them Bush would have fallen far short of meeting his annual obligation, which meant he should have been transferred to active duty for 24 months and made eligible for service in Vietnam.

H.R. McMaster is the author of Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That Led to Vietnam, published last May by HarperCollins.
His book, which he researched and wrote on sabbatical, is extraordinary-if not unprecedented-in the degree of attention, credibility, and influence it has achieved among military leaders and professionals.
The Chiefs were loyal to their services more than they were, I think, to their duties as principal military advisers.

 Dereliction of Duty Regarding Iraq
McMasters details how general officers could, and did, forsake their fellow warriors by glossing over the reality of what was transpiring in a conflict in the name of political expediency, designed to further their own personal careers and reputations.
Myers and his fellow joint chiefs, like those of their ilk who so shamefully served during the Vietnam era, have committed a massive dereliction of duty in the manner in which they so brazenly embraced an illegal war of aggression.
This embrace has led to an acceptance of an ongoing brutal occupation that only deepens the social and political divides inside Iraq, guaranteeing that so long as American forces remain in that embattled nation, the only path our forces are on is one leading inexorably towards civil war, and more death and destruction.

 Vietnam's Forgotten Lessons
Back when Hugh Shelton was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he sent all 17 of his four-star generals "Dereliction of Duty" by H.R. McMaster and asked them to a Pentagon breakfast to discuss the book with the author.
The book charges that the U.S. military was derelict in its duty by meekly allowing duplicitous and inept civilians from the president on down to lead the nation into a war (Vietnam) that it then fought unsuccessfully.
But the military has both a constitutional duty and a solemn obligation to its troops to be candid with the American people.

 National Review Book Service: Dereliction of Duty by Lt. Col. Robert Patterson
Day in and day out in the Clinton White House, he witnessed the President's contempt for the military, his indifference to important issues except insofar as they served his own political or personal purposes, and his reduction of the Office of the Presidency to a playground for his own ambition and thirst for sordid perks.
Patterson not only had numerous opportunities to see Clinton's irresponsibility and neglect of his duties: he also witnessed Hillary's furious, profane rages and relentless shifting of blame to subordinates; the general disdain of Clinton staffers toward the military; and much more.
Patterson explains that he wrote Dereliction of Duty not to attack Bill Clinton, but out of his sense of responsibility as a military man to serve the common good.

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.

 William Wilgus: AWOL and Dereliction of Duty
That he apparently never faced any possibility of punishment for this infraction of the Military Code of Uniform Justice (UCMJ) can be due to only three things: an administrative failure, political influence, or dereliction of duty on part of the person or persons whose duty it would have been to institute such proceedings.
Dereliction of duty, or failure to perform a required task, is also an infraction of the UCMJ and it's unlikely that anyone would have `decided' on his own to over-look the matter.
Since he apparently did not so ask, the charge of Dereliction of Duty should also be added to those of being AWOL.

But Tenet had known all along and it was his duty to have kept the president and the select committee fully informed.
