People frequently ask me why so many former intelligence officers are commenting these days on matters that seem essentially political. The question usually goes “Shouldn’t you stay neutral — above the fray? Isn’t that the tradition for intelligence professionals, both former and still serving?”
"Why so Many Former Intelligence Officers Are Speaking out" is from the September 07, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by John McLaughlin and narrated by Sam Scholl.
