Tuesday afternoon I spoke with former CIA analyst and founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, Ray McGovern, about his confrontation last Thursday with “Defense” Secretary Donald Rumsfeld about his lying us into war with Iraq, Lt.

[Editorial Note: These interviews are being conducted using the excellent VOIP program Gizmo. We highly recommend it. It uses the open source SIP protocol for VOIP, and the open source Jabber protocol for chatting. Gizmo is available for all platforms, Windows (yeccch), Linux, and Apple. It’s also possible to buy what are called SIPPhones, which can communicate directly with Gizmo via ordinary phone lines for free (there is a fee for using the SIP service, the same as there would be for using the regular phone lines). Check out Jon Watson’s interview with Gizmo founder (and great entrepreneur) Mike Robertson (move slider to the 32 minute mark).]
