At confirmation hearing, CIA nominee Gina Haspel evaded questions about her role in “enhanced interrogation” (torture) techniques — most of which are found in the Gestapo “Handbuch.”

Will A Torturer Become CIA Director

In a new wrinkle, Ray was asked by America, the Jesuit weekly, to do a short article on Gina Haspel before Wednesday’s hearing on her nomination to head the CIA.  First, Ray sets out to disabuse America readers of the notion that “torture works.”  He then delves into the moral implications and hits so close to home that the editors end up withholding an
imprimatur to protect one of their own.  Actually, the whole thing is really sad — you might even say scandalous.

Ray on why the U.S. is in Syria

Ray interviewed on why the U.S. is in Syria; the lion’s share of the answer can be found in one lone article that slipped by the censors at the NYT ( See:  https://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/06/world/middleeast/israel-backs-limited-strike-against-syria.html?pagewanted=all)

Esther Iverem of WPFW’s “On the Ground” show asked Ray to address a bunch of other issues as well:

— “I Like Ike”: or, at least how Eisenhower warned about the MIC, which has now morphed into the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Deep State-Media Complex.  Ray gives some examples; says we know where war profiteers live; asks why we don’t walk across Rock Creek to the western side and, nonviolently, hold them accountable.

— The still virulent HWHW (Hillary Would Have Won) virus largely responsible for Russia-gate, which is demonstrably — in Bronx parlance — “a crock.”  And how the emerging  constellation of forces in Washington seems likely to bring on a Constitutional crisis the likes of which not seen since Watergate.

— How the so-called “Russian hack” of the DNC has been forensically proven a fraud by Ray’s technical VIPS colleagues, including two former Technical Directors of the National Security Agency (NSA). The so-called “Russian hack” was actually an inside-DNC job — a download onto a thumb drive, easily explained by applying a basic principle of physics called “fluid dynamics.”
