In this video acTVism Munich interviews former CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) analyst, Ray McGovern, who talks about his experience in the agency and the reasons that led him to become an activist and outspoken critic of the US government. The interview surfaces a number of issues that include: “Enhanced interrogation techniques“ a euphemism for the U.S. government’s program of systematic torture, the role that European governments played in supporting this program, Edward Snowden & the NSA affair, the significance of activism in todays day and age, etc.
Why did President Obama, despite his campaign promises, not pursue meaningful change within the CIA?
Who is Edward Snowden? Is he a traitor or a hero?
What is the role of activism in all of this and what consequences will the European & US population face if they fail to organize & mobilize for change?
These questions and more are addressed in the video.
