The U.S. Surveillance State
From Jeff Layne on August 15th, 2016
Former Analyst, CIA
Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, based on years of experience in the intelligence community, provides an insider’s account of the United States government’s domestic surveillance. A former Army infantry/intelligence officer, McGovern served with the CIA from the Kennedy administration through that of George H. W. Bush. His duties included chairing the National Intelligence Estimates and preparing the “President’s Daily Brief,” during which he briefed President Ronald Reagan’s most senior national security advisors one-on-one from 1981 to 1985. He begins by reciting the Fourth Amendment to the U.S.Constitution, which deals with privacy. He then addresses his concerns about government violations of the Fourth Amendment. McGovern’s talk is followed by his participation in a panel discussion that also includes Dr. John Crosby and Dr. Michael Coyle of the CSU, Chico Political Science Department.
