Ray McGovern returned to the Scott Horton Show to discuss his latest article, “Bolton Flunky Fleitz Raises Stakes for Iran.” McGovern explains in this interview why the role of the NSC and the cabinet play a vital role in national security and foreign policy decisions and gives the background on Fred Fleitz, John Bolton’s new chief of staff. McGovern then shares his memories of working with Colin Powell and how a “smart saluter” was tricked into spreading George W. Bush and the neocons’ lies. McGovern then delves into the Trump administration’s own version of Iraq—the web of lies they’re creating about Iran.
