What do you want this book to accomplish. I.E., what was your goal for this book?

Job as clandestine CIA case officer was to recruit spies and informants.

You say you were a different kind of whistleblower than Ed Snowden, Chelsea Manning or John Kiriakou

How were or are you different?

You've done some hard things in your life, but also things that you felt you had to do. How have you faced that process of taking the step, making the decision, crossing the threshold?

How has your experience changed the way you see the world, so that you now see through new eyes?

Charged that the CIA discriminated against you as an agent

"I was told that I stood out as a big black guy speaking Farsi."

You write that your left left you alienated from the Black community..

Being a black CIA agent was, in some major ways an advantage for you?

Why did they train you to speak Farsi?

Did bringing the discrimination suit against the agency lead to you being charged with violating the espionage act?

Lack of support

Iran Operation Merlin to slow Iran's nuclear program

Working with Russian scientist

Reminds me of how Bill Binny challenged the sensibility of a project he was aware of.

Talks with James Risen at NYTimesnever disclosed to Risenbut Risen wrote about you. What did you talk with him about. Risen was threatened by Eric Holder for refusing to identify his source. Were you the one he wa protecting?

Arrested in 2010, under Obama

What's your take on Obama's relationship to whistleblowers?

Eric Holder ?

Protections for whistleblowers

Sentence 42 months, Petraeus, got plea deal and no time

Released January 16, 2018

You site a quote from James Baldwin, "A journey is called that because you do not know what you will discover on the journey, what you will do with what you find or what you find will do to you.
