The Politicization of Intelligence Work, Biden, Trump’s Carnage, and More with Mel Goodman
We delve into Goodman’s history in intelligence work and his views on what has gone wrong with how the National Security State has operated in the past few decades. We also discuss the dumbing down of America, U.S.-China relations, Michael Scheuer of the CIA’s Bin Laden Unit, the idea of the “deep state”, defense spending, the civil-military gap, and much, much more.
Interview with Ian Masters
Not only has Trump fired the IG of the IC Michael Atkinson and trashed him in public, he also fired the captain of the aircraft carrier the Theodore Roosevelt for expressing concerns about a coronavirus outbreak aboard his ship. But more insidious is the move to bottle up embarrassing revelations of willful ignorance and serial incompetence by placing Grenell in as the head of the Directorate of National Intelligence with Devin Nunes’s protege Patel as his deputy. We will also discuss the warnings by the recently-fired Michael Atkinson issued in his heartfelt statement on Sunday urging potential whistleblowers inside the government that the American people are …”counting on you to use the authorized channels to bravely speak up – there is no disgrace in doing so. Please do not allow recent events to silence your voices”.
