Prepared the president's daily briefs to presidents nixon, ford and Reagan, and delivered it one on one to top staffers.
Ray is a progressive hero, brave enough to engage in civil disobedience, smart enough to brief three presidents on CIA intelligence.

Rough Interview Notes-- mostly my questions
How has the espionage and intelligence community changed since then?
A lot of people say "I don't care if my phone calls are recorded or my emails are saved. I don't have anything to hide?"
What do you have to say to them?
Why do the germans tie the disclosures of Edward Snowden to the Gestapo?
Bundes nachen ddddddddddd
german for hero or traitor
How will the Snowden revelations affect the German elections?
But a lot of people are saying that the Germans, the British, French, etc. are doing the same to us as we do to them.
So, you're saying that any time any US spy agency doesn't want to do spying in the US, they will ask their UK counterpart to do it for them?
A lot of people have said that Edward Snowden has not revealed anything new that people did not know about. Is that true?
What do you think they'll do to Snowden if they get him?
Cyberwars will be the great leveler.
So-- the NSA engaged in an act of war using cyber attack on IRan. That suggests that the NSA, without congressional oversight, since the NSA people lie to congress, can start a war without congressional authorization. And then, on top of that, you've suggested that Obama may claim that HE didn't know.
