Your Call: Whistleblower at the CIA
By Laura Flynn & Renee Kemp
Former intelligence analyst for the CIA, Melvin Goodman joins us to discuss his new book, Whistleblower at the CIA: An Insider’s Account of the Politics of Intelligence.
Goodman says the system for keeping America’s intelligence community accountable is broken. Federal employees fear reprisal if they reveal violations. When whistleblowers leak information, the contents of their disclosures don’t become the target of investigations or media attention, they do. Why is whistleblowing so important?
Melvin Goodman, author of Whistleblower at the CIA: An Insider’s Account of the Politics of Intelligence, former Soviet analyst at the CIA for 24 years, and professor of international relations at the National War College for 18 years

Is There No End to the War-Mongering of the Washington Post
It is increasingly clear that the Russian campaign against Ukraine and the Israeli campaign against Gaza are violating international law and the essential tenets of just war. Neither Russia nor Israel is making the required distinctions between combatants and non-combatants, and the excessive use of force on both battlefields is a violation of the need for proportionality in warfare. Russian and Israeli military forces are targeting civilian infrastructure and even civilians themselves.
