A conversation with Herb Meyer

Our friends at Powerline have done a video interview with our friend and frequent contributor Herb Meyer. If you get your information from the mainstream media, you may not know thaty Herb is one of the people most responsible for victory in Cold War, putting together at the CIA the information identifying the vulnerabilities of the USSR and shuttling among the three key leaders – President Reagan, PM Thatcher, and Pope John Paul -- to create and implement that the victorious strategy.  For this service to our nation, he was awarded the nation’s highest decoration for intelligence service.

Herb is one of the most original and insightful minds analyzing the contemporary world. If you know him, as I am privileged to, then you realize what a brilliant conversationalist he is.  Steve Hayward of Powerline flew into Friday Harbor, Washington, where Herb lives, and recorded a conversation, part one of which is available here. The video cannot be embedded, so you must follow the link. You will be glad you did.
