Ray McGovern on US-Russia relations

McGovern, who was one of the CIA's legendary Kremlinologists, says President-elect Barack Obama can expect to be tested by Russian leader Vladimir Putin, but must cast aside some of the old hard-line attitudes reflected in the Washington rhetoric about confronting Russia.



McGovern hopes that Obama will take Russia's national concerns seriously and will seek out common ground on issues like international terrorism.
