With John’s experience in the CIA, as a Whistleblower who was imprisoned for his discussion, he is a sought after speaker for international organizations, colleges and corporations.
As an international expert in political affairs and experiencing the consequences of governmental missteps, John has a unique perspective on whistleblowing, torture policy, and prison reform.
John Kiriakou was a senior staff member in the United States Senate. He served in the Central Intelligence Agency from 1990 until March 2004, first as an analyst and later as a counterterrorism operations officer. He was later named the executive assistant to the CIA’s associate deputy director for operations, where he was intimately involved in planning for the Iraq war. His op-eds on the Middle East and Afghanistan have appeared in more than eighty newspapers in dozens of countries.
The lies of big brother get bigger. Tonite we discuss the recent revelations of the CIA about their brazen admission of guilt in terms of the use of torture, but as usual like all Big Brother organizations, they justify it using typical "Orwellian Newspeak."
Global Peeks looks at US repression, persecution and some lessons in the struggle against it in light of the police onslaught of Black people & the newly released Senate Report on the CIA interrogation of political prisoners at various sites across the world. We would hear Historic lessons & commentary by Political Prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, Activist Pam Africa & others as well as music of consciousness & revolution.
SUPPORT THIS ISSUE: Defeat Pennsylvania Senate Bill 508 – signed by Governor Tom Corbett – which prohibits prisoners and those formerly incarcerated from speaking publicly. The law targets journalists, non-profits and individuals who aid prisoners in communicating to the outside world.
This law is designed to stop the commentaries of Mumia Abu Jamal from being recorded and aired to the outside world. Protect the First Amendment right to free speech.

I know you're workin' for the CIA - They wouldn't have you in the Ma-fi-a (from Why Can’t We be Friends,by WAR; 1974/75)
The CIA has been exposed, and the principals are scurrying for position.
Senator Diane Feinstein, Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee released this week, the very controversial CIA Report, which provided graphic detail of torture (AKA enhanced interrogation techniques) of suspected conspirators of the 9/11 attacks, in 2001.
Whatever altruism she may possess, it does seem somewhat, she decided to take a major parting shot at the GOP, as her leadership tenure and that of the Senate Democrats, comes to an end. .
Barack Obama and John McCain, took strong positions against torture, while Dick Cheney and the present Director of the CIA, defined the tactics, arguing that the information extracted, prevented further attacks, thus, saving American lives.
While this report is perhaps the highest level of transparency ever, of the Agency, one has to wonder, what information was left out?
Frankly, not only does this open up for a discussion of information-extraction tactics, but the larger issue of the CIA itself, in its historic role in American and world politics, in Africa, for example.
This should be a most provocative discussion on Critical Discourse.
So, tune in this Saturday, at 6 AM, and tell your friends!

Mike Boldea was born in a small northern Romanian Village. At the age of nine, his entire family was deported from Romania for smuggling Bibles. His grandfather, Dumitru Duduman started an outreach ministry called "Hand of Help" of which Mike is now Chairman.
Mike has traveled internationally with Dumitru for over 11 years acting as Dumitru's translator. They shared their testimonies, as well as an important message God gave Dumitru for the United States.
Recently Mike has translated the book entitled "Life In Christ" which Dumitru had penned prior to his death. The testimonies of those that were persecuted for their faith must live on to build up the body of Christ. Mike continues to operate in his gift as an Evangelist to exhort the body of Christ to present itself with a garment clean before our Lord.
Michael has a strong Christian heritage coming from a line of 4 generations of Christians. In the village of Hinceste Romania his Great grandfather was one of the first Christians converted there and his grandfather was a pastor and his father pastors the "Messiah" church in Botosani Romania with over 800 members. Their family worked with Richard Wurmbrandt, Harlan Popoff, and brother Andrew taking bibles to the underground Church.
Michael has seen the presence of God in accomplishing the work that his family was called to. In the face of great persecution and opposition thousands of bibles were given to the Christians of Romania even though it was punishable by imprisonment if caught. His grandfather Dumitru Duduman did suffer greatly being imprisoned for his faith. Under extreme torture he never recanted his faith and stands as a witness of faithfulness to this day in Romania.
