Understanding Ukraine and Russia From George H.W. Bush’s CIA Briefer

You can’t ask for better than this. My old friend (and I do mean he’s really old but sharp and pithy as ever), Ray McGovern, provides an engaging and stimulating hour briefing on the current situation between Russia and Ukraine and, more importantly, gives you the critical history essential to understand what is going on today. The video lasts a little more than an hour and you will be happy you took the time to watch.

Ray was the CIA briefer for the first President Bush during the dissolution of the Soviet Union and helped President Bush understand Mikhail Gorbachev. Watch the video and you will appreciate why President Bush listened to this man (sort of).


Thanks for sharing!
