Tuesday, Dave has C.I.A Analyst Ray McGovern and The Mayor
Today on The Morning Zone, Host Dave Chaffin will be talking about the Petraes affair, what’s happening with Cheyenne and offer open lines for you to weigh in.
7:07AM MST: Veteran C.I.A. analyst Ray McGovern...Washington is reeling after the recent resignation of spy chief David Petraeus. Scandalous details aside, the question now is who the president will tap to fill the spot? McGovern advises Obama to “…Select a person with a proven record of integrity and courage to speak truth, without fear or favor, and with savvy and experience in matters of State and Defense. Former Ambassador Chas Freeman would be an excellent candidate.” He adds, “The faux experts – the neocon specialists at Brookings, AEI and elsewhere — have had their chance. Create White House badges for genuine experts like former National Intelligence Officer for the Near East Paul Pillar, former State Department Chief of Staff Lawrence Wilkerson, and military historian and practitioner Andrew Bacevich (Lt. Col., USA, ret.). These are straight-shooters;they have no interest in ‘long wars'; they will tell you the truth; all you need do is listen.” McGovern works with Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in Washington, DC. During his career as a CIA analyst, he prepared and briefed the President’s Daily Brief and chaired. His website is raymcgovern.com
