Retired CIA officer Sam Faddis recently appeared on Tipping Point to discuss the incoming Trump administration and what that means for the CIA.  Sam comments on what he thinks of Trump’s nominee for the Director of Central Intelligence as well as the State Department.  After, he discusses the long term issues in Iraq and the real battle that happens between America and Iran after ISIS is defeated.
