Challenging Clapper at Carnegie

The full video, including the Q&A, is now available at:

On Nov. 14, 2018, the day after he posed some direct questions to former National Intelligence Director James Clapper at the Carnegie Endowment, Ray wrote “Clapper’s Credibility Collapses.” See:

Embedded in that article was a barely audible iPhone video of the first one and a half minutes of Ray’s questioning of Clapper. The following three minutes are also interesting — as Clapper’s responses to the next two questioners.

Carnegie has now posted a high quality video of Clapper’s Nov. 13 talk at Carnegie, including the Q&A.  Ray was followed by Alli McCracken Jarrar, who asked how Clapper was able to hold onto his job after lying to Congress; and then by Greg Thielmann, who asked why State Department Intelligence (INR) was excluded from the Jan. 6, 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment,“Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections.”

Alli is with Amnesty International; Greg is an ex-Foreign Service Officer and former Director of INR’s Office of Strategic, Political, and Military Affairs and is also a VIPS member. Here, again, is the Carnegie link:

Ray’s is on at minute 28:45; Alli at min. 33:10; and Greg at min. 39:50.
