Fairhaven College’s World Issues Forum

Wed 5/9 from 12:00 PM to 1:20 PM

Mel Goodman will discuss the first 16 months of the Trump presidency in terms of his personnel appointments; his policies; and his process of governance. Both domestic and foreign policies will be examined, but the emphasis will be on national and international security. This has been an unusual and unprecedented presidency and, since we are in uncharted waters for the most part, there will be ample opportunity for discussion and analysis.

The event will be held in the Fairhaven Auditorium, located on the third floor of the Fairhaven College building, 516 High Street Bellingham, WA 98225.

Open to the public.

The event is finished.

The Pentagon and the Washington Post: Cold War Brothers-in-Arms

Caveat Emptor.  There is no better way to exaggerate perceptions of the threat than to rely on the worst-case assumptions of the Department of Defense.  Since the creation of the department in the National Security Act of 1947 we have been inundated with the Pentagon’s distortions: the non-existent “bomber gap” in the 1950s; the “missile gap” in the 1960s; and the so-called “intentions gap” of the 1980s, which argued that the Soviet Union believed that it could fight and even win a nuclear war.

No End to the Washington Post’s War on Whistleblowers

Investigative reporters of the Washington Post often have their exposes because of whistleblowers. Watergate and Deep Throat is the enduring example. In his excellent new book, “Midnight in Washington,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) documents the necessity of whistleblowers to the Congress, particularly the congressional intelligence committees. As Schiff states, without whistleblowers the congress “would be almost completely reliant on the intelligence agencies to self report any problems.”
