Ray McGovern here on Wed, Oct 4th!!
Park University Hosts Lecture by Former CIA Analyst


Former CIA Analyst Ray McGovern will present a lecture, titled Iraq: How We Got In, How We Get Out, at Park University in Parkville, Mo.

The lecture, hosted by Park Universitys Department of Social Sciences, will be on Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the McCoy Meetin House.

McGovern served 27 years as a CIA analyst where he worked for the administrations from John F. Kennedy to George H. W. Bush. His duties at CIA included chairing National Intelligence Estimates and preparing the President Daily Brief (PDB). These, the most authoritative genres of intelligence reporting, have been the focus of press reporting on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and on what the President was told before 9/11. During the mid-80s, McGovern was one of the senior analysts conducting early morning briefings of the PDB one-on-one with the Vice President, the Secretaries of State and Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs.

Currently, McGovern is the co-director of the Servant Leadership School, which provides training and other support for those seeking ways to be in relationship with the marginalized poor. The school is one of 10 Jubilee Ministries, not-for-profit organizations inspired by the ecumenical Church of the Saviour and established in an inner-city neighborhood in Washington, D.C.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Timothy Westcott, Ph.D., at tim.westcott@park.edu or call (816) 584-6364.
