Unauthorized Disclosure

It was only about a month ago that it seemed President Donald Trump's administration was going to escalate tension and take the United States into an all-out war in Iran.

Joining the show this week is CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, who is the co-author of a new book, The CIA Insider's Guide To The Iran Crisis: From CIA Coup To The Brink Of War, which he co-authored with journalist Gareth Porter.

Our wide-ranging conversation with John veers into discussion of Israel's influence over U.S. foreign policy and what struggles a possible President Bernie Sanders administration would have in challenging The Blob—the foreign policymaking elite in Washington, D.C.

We conclude with John's thoughts about the upcoming one-week extradition hearing in WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's case that will take place in the final week of February.
