Video: Ray McGovern Reflects on the Horrors of War

By BillyClub - Posted on 10 October 2011

Ray McGovern was a CIA analyst for 27-years, who turned political activist. A native of the Bronx and graduate of Fordham, he is a strong critic of U.S. wars. On Sunday, Oct. 9, 2011, I caught up with him, (he's also a member of the Veterans for Peace), at an antiwar rally at the White House. Mr. McGovern shared with me his thoughts on the evils of war, particularly as they affect "mothers," while quoting a poem from the Russian poet Nikolay Nekrasov. It's entitled, "Paying Attention to the Horrors of War."
