Ray McGovern


Former CIA senior analyst Ray McGovern discusses his article “Applying the Six-Day War to Iran;” neoconservative Charles Krauthammer’s revisionist history on the war – recounting it as a pre-emptive strike against imminent Arab attack instead of a long-planned land grab; former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin’s candid honesty about Israel’s “war of choice” in 1967; disagreement among Israeli government officials on whether or not Iran poses an existential threat; and how President Obama’s timid negotiating style has complicated his effort to dissuade Netanyahu from attacking Iran.

In the Sixties he served as an infantry/intelligence officer and then became a CIA analyst for the next 27 years. He is on the Steering Group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).

  1. What if Israel had no nukes, what if all its politicians were paid actors in complete submission to the Western corporate rich? More to the point, is it not self-evident?

  2. When you think about it – the Israelis have succeeded in achieving 'regime change' – in the USA!

  3. Be mainstream — Live in grave apprehension of puppet Israel

    “Israelis have succeeded in achieving ‘regime change’ – in the USA!”

    Above is what mainstream media tells us all the time, so mainstream majority of American’s believe it all the time. Problem is, the rich nobility of Western Europe ancestry have owned all of American media and entertainment industry since the days of the town criers. Truth is, Israel was created by our rich nobility as a smokescreen, something that blind’s the mind by burning the emotions, to hide the reality that Empire USA is not a government, but anarchy ruled by the corporate rich.

  4. Who rules Empire USA?

    Actually, no one and everyone, for it is anarchy with a closed loop control system, one that is made hyper-active by too much positive feedback.

    For the feedback is positive and reinforcing pleasure when everyone is enriching themselves upon the misery of anyone less educated.

    For the feedback is negative when the military spends $1 trillion a year on the Afghan War, when high finance takes a $13 trillion bailout from U.S. Treasury, and when the butcher medical industry and high-fat processed food industry fatten people up for the slaughter on a bloody operating table.

  5. In Big israel(aramcorpz), The U$ 51 state has 13AarabMadoff'z that shutup 300M sheeps to be UNAIGslatured for Askar revenue. Impeach O Ba MA NAT ROMnee

  6. Wishful thinking on McG's part. Israel has already done it for 45 years, They can do it another 45 and another 45 etc. Not going to end anytime soon.
