27 Year CIA Veteran, Ray McGovern, "Speaking Freely"


"Speaking Freely" - 55 minute video interview:

In this interview, McGovern misses the mark only once - when he predicts what was yet to happen in Iraq. 

As it happens, I made the same mistaken prediction. 

Now it appears that Iraq will come undone, just as McGovern and I thought shortly before "the surge."

It is evident that McGovern is a man of integrity whose ringside seat at the decline of the CIA obliged him to tell the truth. 


On the following webpage, McGovern - a Catholic - discusses the relationship between the "politics of torture" and religion:

Having served as a CIA analyst for 27 years, Ray McGovern speaks candidly about the creation of the Agency, the deceit that lead to the invasion of Iraq, the questionable character of George Tenet, and more. In stark frankness, McGovern examines the politicization of the Central Intelligence Agency and how it came to be an entity that serves the White House agenda, instead of one that serves up the unbiased truth. Disgusted by the lack of integrity exhibited by members of the intelligence community and U.S. government, McGovern retired and eventually co-created VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity)-an organization dedicated to exposing the mishandling of important intelligence, particularly with regard to the War on Iraq. Full of inside information you have never heard before about the way in which our nation's most secretive agency operates. Written by Richard Castro
