Ray McGovern is a retired CIA officer turned political activist. He was a federal employee under seven U.S. presidents over twenty-seven years, presenting the morning intelligence briefings at the White House for many of them.
McGovern will be one of the featured speakers at the 15th Annual Kateri Tekakwitha Peace Conference this weekend.
For years, people have been asking Ezekiel “Zeke” Emanuel, the brash, outspoken, and fiercely loyal eldest brother in the Emanuel clan, the same question: What did your mom put in the cereal? Middle brother Rahm is the mayor of Chicago, erstwhile White House chief of staff, and one of the most colorful figures in American politics. Youngest brother Ari is a Hollywood super-agent. And Zeke himself is one of the world’s leading bioethicists and oncologists, and a former special advisor for health policy in the Obama administration.
