During the Reagan administration

Herbert E. Meyer was founder and President of Real-World Intelligence Inc., "the world's leading designer of Intelligence Systems for business worldwide". During the Reagan Administration Mr. Meyer served as Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA's National Intelligence Council. In these positions he managed production of the U.S. National Intelligence Estimates and other top-secret projections for the President and his national security advisers. Mr. Meyer is widely credited with being the first senior U.S. government official to forecast the Soviet Union's collapse.[1]

Putin threat

In another episode of Establishment/Incitements to Murder, Meyer stated:

Nor would we object to a bit of poetic justice.... For instance, if the next time Putin’s flying back to Moscow from yet another visit with his good friends in Cuba, or Venezuela, or Iran, his airplane gets blasted out of the sky by some murky para-military group that somehow, inexplicably, got its hands on a surface-to-air missile. [2]

It is however not untypical of men with similar backgrounds to its author; for example a CIA contemporary Duane Clarridge, and of course Mister Meyer would likely know a thing or two about blasting civilian aeroplanes out of the sky, that being a well documented, historically favoured method of dealing with CIA enemies du-jour.
