Tell Somebody

Ray McGovern on torture, Colin Powell and Dick Cheney

What did Colin Powell know, and when did he know it?

“Why do they hate us?’

Does torture work?

Former Vice President Dick Cheney has come out of his non-disclosed location, “oozing out a slimey speech” at the American Enterprise Institute and making multiple TV appearances in defense of torture.

Ray McGovern has been listening - to Cheney, but also to retired Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, Colin Powell’s former Chief of Staff.

Ray McGovern was a 27 year CIA analyst under seven presidents, and he’s talking to Tell Somebody again.
