Info on Podcast #57

Former FBI Agent John Cole talks about his work on counterintelligence, the Sibel Edmonds case and his own experience as a whistleblower.  This is the 8th in our series of Boiling Frogs interviews, co-hosted with Sibel Edmonds.  Cole has a lot to say about the internal workings of the FBI, and the chilling effect on its employees who witness the retaliation against people like Cole and Edmonds who raised issues of criminal behavior or agency mismanagement.  He talks about Turkish and Israeli espionage operations in the US, the infiltration of the Bureau by a Pakistani spy, abuses of FISA applications, the TRILOGY software fiasco, and more.  Cole’s new book is “While America Sleeps–An FBI Whistleblower’s story”.
