Melvin A. Goodman - Whistleblower at the CIA: An Insider's Account of the Politics of Intelligence

Now the Director of the National Security Project at the Center of International Policy, Goodman spent nearly thirty years at the CIA. He joined the Agency in the 1960s and worked as an analyst and division chief until leaving in 1986. His resignation was the culmination of years of growing frustration and outrage at the CIA’s corruption, intimidation, and deliberate dissemination of misinformation to officials and the public. The root of these problems, Goodman shows, is the politicization of national security intelligence gathering, which he argues has led to foreign policy crises including the Iran-Contra scandal, infiltration by the Soviet mole Aldrich Ames, and incidents related to the Patriot Act.
