Goodman and McGovern on CIA deaths in Afghanistan. Melvin A. Goodman is a former analyst for CIA, State Dept. and Defense and author of Failure of Intelligence: The Decline and Fall of the CIA. Ray McGovern started at the CIA in the 1960’s and was daily briefer to Reagan. Combined, they have more than 60 years of intelligence experience. They comment on the suicide bomber who killed 7 CIA agents in Afghanistan, the CIA’s role in the drone attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the likely cycle of vengeance that will follow, and Obama’s decision to commit more US troops. We also talk about the attempt to blow up a US airliner approaching Detroit on Christmas day and the hysterical response, as well as the dismissal of criminal charges against Blackwater mercenaries for the Nisour Square incident.
