Antiwar Radio: Michael German

Michael German, Policy Counsel for the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office and former FBI Special Agent, discusses FBI management’s rigorous attention to public relations and persecution of internal whistleblowers, broad 9/11 intelligence failures across all agencies, the unnecessary division of FBI functions into a semi-transparent and accountable criminal justice half and a completely unaccountable intelligence half, the high conviction rate of terrorism prosecutions in federal courts and the FBI’s continuing work on ethnic maps in the U.S.
