Ray McGovern: “Obama is Afraid of the C.I.A.”

Many people have speculated that Obama is a direct operator for the C.I.A., which explains the complete cronyism and deception in his every act as President.  This wouldn’t surprise me. Others speculate that he is just an empty-suit political hack who was informed about “how things work” by the shadow government after he was sworn in.  This wouldn’t surprise me either.  More importantly, what we can all agree on now is that it is certainly one or the other. Retired C.I.A. analyst Ray McGovern has come out and given his opinion in a recent interview.  His best line, and one that sums it up perfectly is:

I think he’s just afraid and he shouldn’t have run for president if he was going to be this much of a wuss. 

More from Mondoweiss:

Obama has abandoned progressive principles, such as stopping drone attacks and shutting down Guantanamo, because he is afraid of being assassinated, telling friends, “Don’t you remember what happened to Martin Luther King Jr.?” retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern said today. 

McGovern spoke on WBAI’s show Law and Disorder this morning. He was talking about his recent article calling Obama “a wuss” and speculated that Obama had also placed John Brennan as head of the CIA out of fear that the CIA might turn on him, as it had on John Kennedy. 

During his CIA career, Ray McGovern prepared daily briefings for the president and chaired the National Intelligence Estimates. He is now a leading antiwar activist.

Ratner then said, “I represent Guantanamo people. I thought the biggest lie in the speech was—’I have tried to close Guantanamo.’” There are half a dozen ways in which Obama “has actually sabotaged the closing of Guantanamo. Straight lie.”

McGovern goes on to state:

So you need to read this book, and then you need to reflect on Obama. If he is sort of a wuss or a wimp or a person who just has no real  principles but is rather a politician through and through– and he’s got two small kids and he doesn’t want to get killed. I have to say I never thought I would hear myself saying this, but it is the only logical explanation for why he is so afraid, unless you say the man is a through and through charlatan, that he actually is acting on behalf of these forces of darkness. I don’t believe the latter. I think he’s just afraid and he shouldn’t have run for president if he was going to be this much of a wuss.

Indeed.

  1. McGovern should actually look into Obama’s background before making such an idiotic statement.

  2. Remember the first few weeks of Obama’s presidency when he said things like he wasn’t going to hire lobbyists or allow the revolving door to continue in his administration. That sentiment didn’t last a month.

    I believe that you’re correct and there was a briefing in which Obama learned how the government really works, the true state of finite global resources, and I imagine that it was made abundantly clear that our current world population level won’t be sustainable for long. Obama was likely offered the choice of having a seat in the lifeboat or remaining on the Titanic and it’s fairly obvious which choice he made.

  3. Aren’t we all afraid of the spooks?

    • I think your a fool if your not afraid of the shadow gov. All the more reason to look beyond the puppets and see who is pulling the strings and how they are doing it. The lust for money and power is the puppets motivation and to big to fail is pulling the strings.

  4. Charlatan or afraid of the shadow gov’t.

    Let’s say it’s the latter. So maybe they told him point blank, ‘play ball or you and your precious family die.’ How many wouldn’t play ball?

    Either way, the American people will have to save themselves, not look to a president to do it. If and when they’re ready to do that, they might be able to get a president with some integrity & spine.
