Both Edward Snowden and Daniel Ellsberg have asked more whistleblowers to step into the public light and speak out. Several brave individuals have responded. One of them is Melvin Goodman.

Melvin A. Goodman was a Soviet analyst at the CIA and the Department of State for 24 years, and a professor of international relations at the National War College for 18 years. He served in the U.S. Army in Athens, Greece for three years, and was intelligence adviser to the SALT delegation from 1971–1972.

Currently, Goodman is the Director of the National Security Project at the Center for International Policy in Washington, DC, and adjunct professor of government at Johns Hopkins University. He has authored, co-authored, and edited seven books, including his "National Insecurity: The Cost of American Militarism", (published by City Lights) Gorbachev's Retreat: The Third World; The Wars of Eduard Shevardnadze; The Phantom Defense: America's Pursuit of the Star Wars Illusion; Bush League Diplomacy: How the Neoconservatives are Putting the World at Risk, and Failure of Intelligence: The Decline and Fall of the CIA.

Dennis J Bernstein will host, raising the topic of Syria and US Government lies.
