Fomer CIA analyst Ray McGovern gives his view of DHS head Chertoff’s “gut feeling” that something very bad is going to happen, “faith-based” intelligence in general, the actual threat of terrorist attacks versus our government’s hysterical scare-mongering – due largely to the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, the public’s demand for Bush and Cheney’s removal from office, Libby’s get out of jail free card, the latest NIE, why the U.S. should withdraw from Iraq, Cheney’s “plenary powers,” the modern conservative movement’s contempt for the constitution, No, the “whole world” did not think there were WMD in Iraq, No, al Qaeda in Iraq is not responsible for most of the violence there, No, the thousands of American Muslims rounded up after 9/11 were not terrorists, and the “50% chance” of war with Iran.
