Long Strange Journey: Reflections on the National Security State

Featuring Patrick G. Eddington, Former CIA Analyst & Capitol Hill Staffer

 

The past few months have been awash with revelations about the national security apparatus and the moral and legal issues that arise from its activities. Please join the IRC in welcoming Patrick Eddington, a former CIA imagery analyst who resigned from the agency in 1996 to blow the whistle on the intelligence community's cover-up of the Gulf War syndrome (a chronic multi-symptom illness similar to PTSD) and help afflicted veterans receive health care.

 

 During his lecture, Eddington will address his career in Washington, both as an intelligence officer and as an overseer of the intelligence community as a congressional staffer, connecting insights about the national security community from the past to the present. 

 

While at the CIA, Eddington’s analytical assignments included monitoring the breakup of the USSR, assessing Iraqi and Iranian conventional forces, and coordinating CIA military targeting support to NATO during Operational Deliberate Force in Bosnia in 1995. Following his departure from the agency, he worked at a number of veterans’ rights organizations. Eddington’s opinion pieces have appeared in such publications as the Washington PostLos Angeles Times, and Army Times, among others. He’s commentated on national security and intelligence issues for CNN, MSNBC, Fox news, and a number of other TV networks. Eddington is a graduate of the Georgetown MSFS Security Studies Program, and now works as a Senior Intelligence Advisor for US Congress. He's written two books, Gassed in the Gulf and Long Strange Journey.
