KLAW: Your Call: Whistleblower at the CIA

Listen to the Wednesday June 21 broadcast of Your Call with Mel Goodman.

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?

Guest:

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
