Generally speaking, it’s pretty hard to slip one past here at American Police Beat as far as submissions to the publication go. But no one bats a thousand when it comes to making sure people are who they claim to be. In short we were duped by one “Buck Buckhauser,” who authored the opinion piece that ran in the January 2013 entitled “Our diplomatic security service needs more funding.”

It turns out not only was “Mr. Buckhauser” flat out wrong about the facts, we also learned from the DSS that no Buck Buckhauser ever worked for the agency.

Mr. Buckhauser claimed, in writing, to be a Special Agent with DSS.

American Police Beat has worked hard for the better part of 20 years to build trust with the nations’ law enforcement professionals.

It’s a result of that trust that we generally assume people who send in submissions are on the up and up.

To our knowledge, this is the first instance where we printed an article from a source that turned out to be fraudulent.

American Police Beat would like to thank the Diplomatic Security Service for bringing this matter to our attention and we apologize for printing what in retrospect is clearly an unhinged rant from someone that doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

The men and women charged with the safety of our diplomats and their staffs have enough on their plate without having to answer baseless charges leveled by uninformed observers.
