Posted on 05/19/2006 5:31:11 AM PDT by pissant
Defense Secretary Donald Rumfeld's confrontation with hecklers was big news. But the media didn't tell us that the main heckler, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, has contributed articles to publications associated with political extremist Lyndon LaRouche, who served time in prison on financial fraud charges and once called for bringing into being "a new Marxist International throughout the capitalist sector."
McGovern previously told AIM that he knows nothing about LaRouche but believes his researchers "do some fairly good work." It looks like the major media don't know much about LaRouche or McGovern. If McGovern is incapable of knowing the facts about LaRouche, a crank on the national stage, perhaps it's a good thing he left the CIA.
McGovern is also a co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, which regularly states that Israel is manipulating our foreign policy. As documented by Frontpagemag.com, McGovern spoke to Rep. John Conyers mock hearing last June that foreshadowed genuine impeachment hearings he will hold if the Democrats win control of the House this November. "In McGovern's view," wrote Jacob Laksin, "the sinister motivations for the war could be explained by the axiom O.I.L.: "O for Oil, I for Israel, and L for leveraging our land bases."
What mattered to the media, of course, was that he was a Rumsfeld critic, and Rumsfeld is a popular media target these days.

Yes it is disgusting. I mean Lyndon LaRouche, and he see's a world wide Jewish conspiracy, so he's anti-semitic to boot. And NONE of this was in MSM. Only that he heckled Rummy and of course he was in CIA which makes him sound all nicey nicey.
Being in the CIA is only a positive to the MSM if you are an anti Bush kook. If you are a serious CIA, non partisan warrior, then the MSM treats you like an enemy.
Rummy in 2008! ;o)
I'd vote for him- or VP Cheney- in a heartbeat.
Rummy/Franks. Cheney/Rummy. Franks/Pence. Sessions/Pence. All are fine by me.
