President-elect's Queries to Briefers

By Ray McGovern - November 7, 2008

After a week lecturing at Kansas State University and then in Kansas City, Missouri, I could not shake the feeling that what Kansas and Missouri need most is the equivalent of Radio Free Europe, which was so effective in spreading truth around inside Eastern Europe during the Cold War.

(Truth in advertising: during the late Sixties, I served for two years as substantive liaison officer between the RFE and Washington.)

So I was amused while still in Kansas to get a call from Mike Caddell of “Radio Free Kansas” asking me for an interview. Broadcasting from rural northeastern Kansas, Caddell does his own part in spreading truth around.

Most of his fellow Kansans are malnourished by a steady diet of extreme right-wing media gruel that helps re-elect folks like see-no-evil Republican Sen. Pat Roberts, who did Bush’s bidding in “justifying” Bush’s attack on Iraq when Roberts headed the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Countdown: Bushed! August 6, 2008 (7 Year Anniversary of The PDB . . .)

It was great of Keith O. last night to emphasize the anniversary of the infamous 08.06.01 PDB . . .

Watch particularly at 1:40. Though it's just about the, so far, publicly known facts (and not deeper truths, YET), at least lots of people across this country saw and heard this last night, so it's either entering their consciousness on some level if it hasn't already, or it's being refreshed . . .
