CIA Whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling persecuted for exposing discrimination, danger

By The Grayzone – Pushback with Aaron Maté

Former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling is a double whistleblower: as an African-American, he challenged racism from superior officers; he also voiced concerns about a deeply flawed CIA effort to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program. The U.S. government retaliated by accusing him, without evidence, of leaking classified information. Sterling joins Pushback to discuss his ordeal.

Guest: Jeffrey Sterling, author of “Unwanted Spy: The Persecution of an American Whistleblower.”
