Antiwar Radio: Melvin Goodman

Melvin Goodman, author of Failure of Intelligence: The Rise and Fall of the CIA, discusses problems with the CIA, how the serial intelligence manipulator Robert Gates was brought in to replace Rumsfeld only after Rumsfeld started talking about withdrawal, the history of distorting intelligence to fit the policy, how the military runs the intelligence apparatus, Congress’s indifference to the Constitutional crisis and our inevitable failures in Iraq and the militarily-led war on terror.
