The CIA’s deputy director plans to resign and will be replaced by White House lawyer and agency outsider Avril D. Haines, Director John O. Brennan said Wednesday. Haines, who will succeed career officer Michael Morell on Aug. 9, has served for three years as President Obama’s deputy counsel in charge of national security issues and as legal adviser to the National Security Council. Although she has never worked inside the intelligence agency, “she knows more about covert action than anyone in the U.S. government outside of the CIA,” Brennan said in an interview.

Just what we need. Another Obama-appointed political hack in a sensitive national security position.

Great. Now we have an Obama Marxist as a Deputy Director of the CIA. The infiltration of the entire US Government by Marxists is taking place before our eyes. Where is Joe MacCarthy when we need him?

Rent-seeking lawyers have been a major contributor to the demise of this country.

They have infested the entire government, especially in places where they would, logically, have no business.

Also today: President Barack Obama announced Morell’s appointment to the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board.

The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board (PIAB) is an advisor to the Executive Office of the President of the United States. According to its self-description, it “...provides advice to the President concerning the quality and adequacy of intelligence collection, of analysis and estimates, of counterintelligence, and of other intelligence activities.”[1]

The PIAB, through its Intelligence Oversight Board (IOB), also advises the President on the legality of foreign intelligence activities. [Wiki]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Morell will be replaced by Avril Haines [bio from WH]

“Avril D. Haines is Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Counsel to the President for National Security Affairs at the White House.

Prior to joining the White House Counsel’s office in 2010, she was Assistant Legal Adviser for Treaty Affairs at the Department of State. She previously worked in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the Department of State from 2003 to 2006, first in the Office of Treaty Affairs and then in the Office of Political Military Affairs.

From 2007 to 2008, she worked on the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations as Deputy Chief Counsel for the Majority. Ms. Haines clerked for Judge Danny Boggs on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit from 2002 to 2003.

From 2001 to 2002, she was a Legal Officer at The Hague Conference on Private International Law. She received a B.A. in Physics from the University of Chicago and a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.”

I’m moving, who am I supposed to notify now? With people resigning, being replaced, it’s become hard to know any more.
