Ray McGovern talks about Iran, an IAEA report on nuclear verification, and Israel

Host Per Fagereng speaks with Ray McGovern, who was a U.S. army officer and CIA analyst for 30 years, about Iran, an IAEA report on nuclear verification in Iran circulated last week, and Israel. McGovern recently said, "What's really new, if anything, in the IAEA report? And why are some U.S. officials, belatedly, playing it down after a lot of pre-release ballyhoo? Does this reflect a nervous attempt to rein in the 'crazies' in Tel Aviv and their neocon friends in Washington? If so, is it likely to have that effect?

KBOO’s month long experiment in ‘embedded journalism’ at Occupy Portland

When the Occupy Portland encampment began on October 6th, we at KBOO knew that we would be very involved in reporting on the movement – the issues, the constituency involved, the bottom-up civic activism displayed by the camp’s ad-hoc organizers all spoke directly to KBOO’s long-established values of peace, justice, democracy, human rights, multiculturalism, freedom of expression and social change.

But I don’t think any of us realized at the time just how entrenched our reporting would become.
