Former CIA analysts Ray McGovern and David MacMichael discuss how the White House exploited the September 11 attacks to fulfill an ideological strategic concept and wage a war that had nothing to do with weapons of mass destruction or ties with al-Qaeda.

Earlier we talked about the case of the former U.S. ambassador to Iraq, Joe Wilson and the outing of his wife as an alleged CIA agent by senior white house officials after Wilson came forward saying there was no evidence of that Iraq attempted to import aluminum tubes from Niger. Today we are going to talk about the September 11th attacks.

  • Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst.
  • David MacMichael, former CIA analyst.
