Why do we need to give people like Giraldi and McGovern? They both “know where the bodies are buried.” Ray McGovern worked for the CIA for 27 years under seven presidents – from John F. Kennedy to George H.W. Bush. He gave personal briefings to three presidents in the 1980s, particularly on Russia. Giraldi was a CIA Case Officer and Army Intelligence Officer who spent twenty years overseas in Europe and the Middle East working terrorism cases.
