Those tired of hearing Ray on the spurious charges of “Russian hacking,” can fast forward to minute 25:00 when the discussion turns to central Europe and the fallout from the coup in Ukraine. At minute 35:00 the discussion focuses more on strategic matters – particularly the destabilizing result of George W. Bush’s pulling the U.S. out of the Antiballistic Missile Treaty, which had been the key stabilizing factor in the strategic equation. Ray traces that issue back to its beginning in May 1972. It was analysts working for Ray in CIA’s Soviet Foreign Policy Branch, and military analysts in other branches, who were able to assure Nixon that CIA could verify if he could trust, so to speak. Ray was there in Moscow when President Richard Nixon came and signed the historic ABM Treaty.
