The November 6, 2005 edition of Revolution, the newspaper of the RąP=u$A literally publishes an article by the CIA.
They headline the article by a "former CIA analyst Ray McGovern." The whole idea of a "former" CIA agent is a laughing stock worldwide. We would even hesitate to call Putin a "former" KGB agent; even though the Soviet Union and its KGB are gone. When exactly does the RąP=u$A expect the CIA to come out and openly admit it is controlling the media?
The same RąP=u$A article admits that Ray McGovern is speaking for "Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity." There is not even an "ex-" figleaf there.
The line of the article is the usual CIA line, that there were no weapons of mass destruction and Bu$h stepped on CIA toes. Of course what is implied is that if the CIA did decide there were weapons of mass destruction there, then the imperialist war would have been justified. That is a fine position for an anti-war organization to take. It has no place in a revolutionary newspaper.
More important than the "line" of the CIA is the journalistic policy of an alleged Marxist organization. What did the RąP=u$A exchange for that article? Who owed whom what? No serious revolutionary organization in the world can become an outlet for CIA propaganda. That does not vary by conditions. The CIA is in the same disrepute in Peru or the Philippines.
We'd also ask the organizations tolerating the RąP=u$A: would your journalistic organization tolerate that? We demand to know.
