Ex-Spies: CIA Workers Outraged

NEW YORK, July 19, 2003


Before the bombs fell on Baghdad, there were analysts inside the American intelligence community who were troubled by the U.S. case for war, reports CBS News Correspondent Jim Acosta. Raymond McGovern, a former CIA analyst and supervisor, says, "Never before in my 40 years of experience in this town has intelligence been used in so cynical and so orchestrated a way." McGovern is one of several retired intelligence analysts who say they are speaking out for those who can't inside the CIA.

"The Agency analysts that we are in touch with are disheartened, dispirited, angry, he says. They are outraged."

2. Surprise. Surprise. When will the media/people wake up to the fact
that everything this Administration does is to either further a hard, far-right ideology/PNAC vision; for political gain; or to reward patrons, for absolutely nothing else matters? Absolutely nothing else.
