  • Memorial Day Special: Shetterly & McGovern 5/27/13

    Producer/Host: Amy Browne
    Engineer: Matt Murphy

    Award-winning artist and activist Robert Shetterly talks with former CIA agent Ray McGovern, one of the subjects in Shetterly’s portrait series “Americans Who Tell the Truth” www.americanswhotellthetruth.org , www.raymcgovern.com/

    From Ray McGovern’s website:
    “Ray came from his native New York to Washington in the early Sixties as an Army infantry/intelligence officer and then served as a CIA analyst from the administration of John F. Kennedy to that of George H. W. Bush. Ray’s
    duties included chairing National Intelligence Estimates and preparing the President’s Daily Brief, which he
    briefed one-on-one to President Ronald Reagan’s most senior national security advisers from 1981 to 1985.
    In January 2003, Ray helped create Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) to expose the way
    intelligence was being falsified to “justify” war on Iraq. On the afternoon of the day (Feb. 5, 2003) Secretary of State Colin Powell misled the UN Security Council on Iraq, VIPS sent an urgent memorandum to President George
    W. Bush, in which we gave Powell a C minus for content. We ended the memo with this”
