"Whistleblower at the CIA offers a fascinating glimpse into the secret, behind-the-scenes world of U.S. intelligence. Melvin Goodman's first-person account of the systematic manipulation of intelligence at the CIA underscores why whistleblowing is so important, and why the institutional obstacles to it are so intense. . . . At its core it's an invaluable historical expose, a testimony to integrity and conscience, and a call for the U.S. intelligence community to keep its top leaders in check. Urgent, timely, and deeply recommended. -Daniel Ellsberg
What on earth is going on inside all the murky conflict surrounding the C.I.A., the F.B.I., and all the security ops?
Both Edward Snowden and Daniel Ellsberg have asked more whistleblowers to step into the public light and tell their truth. Several brave individuals have responded. By far the most important of them is Melvin Goodman.
Goodman was a Soviet analyst at the CIA and the Department of State for 24 years. Goodman is the Director of the National Security Project at the Center for International Policy in Washington, DC, and adjunct professor of government at Johns Hopkins University. He has authored, co-authored, and edited seven books.
Daniel Ellsberg released the Pentagon Papers to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee; in 1971 he gave it to the New York Times, the Washington Post and 17 other newspapers. He is the author of three books, including Papers on the War (1971), He is currently completing "The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner."
Dennis J Bernstein is the executive producer of Flashpoints, syndicated on Pacifica Radio.
