What most Americans “know” about post-Soviet Russia — its actions in
Ukraine, Syria, or “hacking DNC emails” is rubbish strewed by the
complex. Without an “enemy”, MICIMATT would find it harder to embezzle
our taxes in obscene amounts. If you share with Rep. Jason Crow (D,
Colorado) a fear that “Putin wakes up every morning and goes to bed
every night trying to figure out how to destroy American democracy,” you
might take advantage of this opportunity to check what you “know” about
Russia, and how you got to know it.
• Ray McGovern has been a student of Russia since picking Russian as a
major a half-century ago. During 27 years as a CIA analyst, Ray led the
Soviet Foreign Policy Branch, serving in Moscow for part of that time.
Later, he prepared the President’s Daily Brief for 3 presidents — in
1981-85 personally conducting those early-morning briefings. In
retirement, Ray co-founded Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity
(VIPS) – a group of senior ex-intelligence officers equipped and willing
to hold colleagues from their former agencies accountable.
