Former CIA analyst talks about Iran

Ray McGovern was a top analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency for 27 years, and also served as chairman of the National Intelligence Estimates … pulling together the intelligence from all U.S. Government intelligence agencies. McGovern was in Wichita last week for several appearances on the topic: “The C-I-A and Iran: The Good and the Bad”. I interviewed McGovern on Steve & Ted in the Morning.
His take on Iran: reports of their nuclear capability are overblown and Israel is guiding American policy regarding Iran. McGovern told me our president and other political leaders do and say pretty much whatever the Israeli government tells them. That prompted a call from an angry listener demanding that we “get that anti-Semite off the air”.
Ray McGovern also told me that water boarding or “enhanced interrogation” can be very effective … if you want the target to tell you what you want to hear. If you’re after accurate intelligence, that’s another matter.
Our thought for today is from Samuel Butler:
“I do not mind lying, but I hate inaccuracy.”
