Ray McGovern’s Missouri Tour

Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern kicked off a trip to Missouri with a stop at the KKFI studios on March 27, 2014 to share some of his thoughts on goings-on in Ukraine and to talk about his recent trips to England, Netherlands, and the National Press Club and the State Department in Washington.

McGovern’s current trip will take him all over Missouri, with quick stops in Lawrence, KS and Fayetteville, AR, culminating in talk at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library on Monday, April 7 at 6:30pm.  That presentation is billed as “Speaking Truth to Power.”  (You can RSVP for that *here*).
