Morrell recently was revealed as the person who signed off on the edits to the CIA’s Benghazi talking points, which removed all references to previous safety warnings and Al-Quaida activity in the area.

“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,” CIA Director John Brennan said in a statement, according to CNS News.

“Michael’s devotion to the men and women of the Agency, our intelligence mission, and to a job well done has been exemplary.”

As if that’s not enough, the shell game continues. After it was said that Morrell wanted to spend more time with his family, the White House announced he has been tapped to serve on the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board.

“Whenever someone involved in the rough and tumble of Washington decides to move on, there is speculation in various quarters about the ‘real reason,’” Morell told CNS. “But when I say that it is time for my family, nothing could be more real than that.”

Time will tell.

    Alinsky Rules apply here

    What he really means is it is time to move on to protect his family…You know the old saying "Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer". Obama lives by this rule and puts all that know too much about his criminal activities in higher positions, all while blackmailing them. The White House is packed with criminals!!!

    I don't trust politicians on either side and it did not start with this administration, however, this has to be the absolute most corrupt administration in the history of our country. While I have NEVER trusted the man, when Obama said he would be transparent, I never realized that he meant with his hatred for our country, for our military, for our citizens and for those of Christian beliefs and that he would do everything in his power to destroy it!

    I continue to become more sickened each day by the evil of this man and those who follow him.

    A BIG yah to that D Duncan.

    Nothing will be done until we either get A congress with morals, or enough scandals keep coming that those currently in congress will have to act to cover their own fat lazy bribed asses…

    Another person falls on his sword for Obama/Hillary. He'll get amply rewarded for the loyal lying sacrifice. What has happened to this country's government?

  8. gullible white cattl says:

    I doubt it was just Morrell. Smoking gun points at Hillary Clinton. this is not left vs right, GOP vs Dems, Socialism vs liberty. This is war against White people.

    Why do hostile globalist elite defend Israel as a Jewish ethnostate with Jewish only immigration, but ravage White majority Europe/North America into a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Gulag with dystopian non-White colonization?

    The world is 93% non-White, only 7% White. But 3rd world colonizers, Muslims, Sikhs, Hispanics, are aggressively advancing their agenda to annihilate gullible Whites, just as China annihilates Tibet.

    How long will gullible Whites cuckold for murderous anti-White elite, who confiscate our guns, infiltrate/subvert our banks/FBI/CIA, indoctrinate White kids in academia/mass media, plunder White jobs/wages, & butcher White soldiers in bankrupting wars?

    "Native" Americans invaded from East Asia. Yellow & Brown races committed 10-times more genocide, slavery, imperialism than Whites. Since Old-Testament, Whites have been victims of Jewish/Crypto-Jewish, Turkic, Muslim, N.African imperialism, slavery, genocide.

    Gullible Whites should reject subversive ideologies- libertarianism, feminism, liberalism- & reject hostile slanders of racism. Peace to all humanity, but White people must organize to advance their interests, their fertility, their homelands. Spread this message. Reading list: , , ,

  9. Kenneth Clark says:

    Retiring and resigning are not acceptable forms of accountability.

    Acceptable are:

    1. Puplic firing

    2. All retirement benefits removed because of the deception and cover up

    3. Such a stigma attached to them that not even Obama would want to ear their names again

    4. Demand restitution to the people's treasury of every dime paid to them.
