Ray McGovern, a 27-year career analyst with the CIA who was one of Vice President George Bush daily briefer says Rice’s testimony and the events surrounding it have "the very strong odor of the most accomplished PR machine in White House history." Former CIA and State Department analyst Mel Goodman says the staff studies of the commission, which were released the same day as Richard Clarke’s testimony and were largely ignored, "make it clear that there was reduced urgency within the Bush administration" on 9/11.

  • Ray McGovern, 27-year career analyst with the CIA. He is co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity. He worked under George Bush Sr., both when he was director of central intelligence, as well as when he was Vice President. He was one of his daily briefers.
