Deputy CIA Dir Michael Morell - played key role in crafting #Benghazi “talking points” - announces ‘retirement’ effective August 9th
“As much as I would selfishly like to keep Michael right where he is for as long as possible, he has decided to retire to spend more time with his family and to pursue other professional opportunities,”
Life of paid retirement on the taxpayer all the money and benefits without the work and will get a consulting job in a year.
The 100 pages of e-mails showed a disagreement between David H. Petraeus, then the director of the C.I.A., and his deputy, Michael J. Morell, over how much to disclose in the talking points, which were used by Susan E. Rice, the ambassador to the United Nations, in television appearances days after the attack.
Mr. Morell, administration officials said, deleted a reference in the draft version of the talking points to C.I.A. warnings of extremist threats in Libya, which State Department officials objected to because they feared it would reflect badly on them.
Mr. Morell, officials said, acted on his own and not in response to pressure from the State Department. But when the final draft of the talking points was sent to Mr. Petraeus, he dismissed them, saying Frankly, Id just as soon not use this, adding that the heavily scrubbed account would not satisfy the House Democrat who had requested it.
This is certainly not what Vice Chairman Ruppersberger was hoping to get, Mr. Petraeus wrote, referring to Representative C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which had asked Mr. Petraeus for talking points to use with reporters in discussing the attack on Benghazi.
Just great!! The jackass resigns on my birthday.
You know, it would be nice if some of these people lost their pension instead of being allowed to “retire” with a get out of jail free card.
Besides Low Level Nothing CANNOT and DID NOT put a "STAND DOWN" order....only the PRESIDENT can do that!!!
This little Morrel creep is going to get a HUGE PAYOFF by Google or Facebook or some lefty group like that for trying to take the blame!!
