Speaker: Melvin Goodman, PhD, Retired CIA and State Department Analyst, Author

The whistleblower is essential to congressional oversight, investigative journalism, and the public's awareness of important national and international security issues. Mel Goodman will address his own experiences as a whistleblower in testifying to the Senate intelligence committee in 1991 to block the confirmation of Robert Gates as Director of Central Intelligence. He will also discuss such whistleblowers as Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, the CIA whistleblower at the White House, and the recent case of Dr. Rick Bright at the Department of Health and Human Services. The lack of protection for whistleblowers in the intelligence community will also be assessed.

A Zoom link will be provided to registrants the day before the event. Cost is $5
