Ex-CIA boss Morell gives unorthodox
reasons for omitting key Benghazi details

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/3/2014 10:03:11 PM

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Comments:
"Unorthodox" is a kind way of putting it. That´s what happens when everything is political and you cover-up, lie and stonewall. It gets exhausting and confusing and he can´t remember his lies. Bill Cowan states in the article that his friends in the CIA are incensed that Morell would take the word…of analysts in Washington DC over the chief of station. No kidding. Incensed? It´s outrageous. I hope they start speaking out!! They should!

This man Morell is working at a firm closely aligned with Hillary, and hopes to advise a presidential campaign.

Where is he going to keep his 30 pieces of silver?

Intelligence agencies are expected to lie, that´s what they do. Not only does the job include gathering facts about the enemy but it also means disguising your own capabilities and actions.

That´s why we have a president and a congress to keep them in line - oh, wait.

What seems to be the problem with Morell, the Regime he is a part of, the msm and Obama is their ability to honestly communicate with the rest of us plebs.

However, the frightening part of their communication philosophy is they don´t know that they are lying. They actually don´t known the difference between a lie and the truth or good and evil...all that matters is what is relative to what the socialist elites feel is best for the rest us.

To explain the phenomenon more simply...we are living in OBAMA WORLD...a house of mirrors at a two bit fair.

Morell professes the highest integrity, then issues a statement to the nation that he defends, but admits was not true, and Congress says is "devoid of the facts", aka it was all lies. Casting could not have found a better weasel.

If this is the calibre of people we have working in the highest levels of our intelligence agencies, we are in serious trouble. Usually, when there is rot at the very top of an organization it is rotten throughout. And we all know who sits in the catbird seat of this country. He is an unprincipled liar who lacks a moral compass completely driven to fundamentally transform this country. To our grave misfortune, there are many ensconced in our government who are willing to help him succeed. Mr. Morell is, no doubt, just one of thousands.

Morell is a lying weasel to be sure, but we also need to remember that zippy and Killary have, no doubt, threatened his and his family´s lives. It´s the Chicago way and the Clinton way.

That said, every one of them should be dank, bare, moldy cells in the basement of Leavenworth.

I think #11 has a good point...."They don´t know they are lying".

The charitable take on Morell is that it is unthinkable (since he wants to be part of her future Presidential campaign) that Mrs. Clinton could be culpable in any way on Benghazi, therefore the "protest" explanation is correct. And since that is what he wanted, he chose to prefer that explanation over that of his agents on the ground in Libya.

Unexplained still is why, once the situation was known to be deadly serious, no help was sent. That EVERYONE in the White House simply went to bed and turned off the phone that night is an unreasonable assumption. The "no interference" order came from somewhere, and the Oval Office (aka ValJar) is the only logical place, unless, I suppose, she was also doing a little cocaine that night....

Morell is close friends with the Clintons & stated he´s working on a presidential campaign ...hmmm I bet he´s not working for Paul or Cruz. I don´t know how he could be pleased with himself, he should be ashamed. If this is the type Hillary has on her campaign he matches her personality.

At some point...reality always takes over.

Should there be a violent uprising (only talking hypothetically here) the side which has become comfortable with self-delusion and fantasy will make very poor decisions in the face of actual violent confrontation.

This style of self-deception caused Adolf Scheckelgruber to lose the second world war.

This regime´s preference for Socialist Fantasy over obvious reality will be it´s downfall.

I have no idea how this will play out but I do know that Conservatives are deeply committed to a reality based world view and only by meditating on this theme am I able to sleep at night.

Stay strong and Pay Attention to these delusional criminals who have wormed their way into power.....at the moment.

Who are these "intelligent analysts"? Somehow I picture a bunch of low level beauracrats sitting around trying to come up with ANYTHING and everything that COULD be the reason, other than terrorists. The word was given from on high in the "building" that they were not satisfied with the terrorist angle as even one of the options!

All they would have had to do, to have this be a non-issue, was to have errored on caution, and say, we dont know. But, NO.. they are too devious by half and so interested in how it would play in the election, that they lied and tried to cover it up. And they knew the MSM would cover for them until "what difference at this point does it make"!

side note: I lost all respect for him when he spoke like a valley girl. Starting every statement with..."So".

When we saw just a portion of his presentation (not, testimony, since that implies truth), I wanted to reach out and smack him.

The gentleman on Fox & Friends this morning who is a relative to one of the Benghazi victims was excellent! Where are the rest of the families beside Mrs. Smith. Have they been threatened?

The Morell character relied on analysts reading newspaper articles and NOT the people on the ground. Can you believe it? Pravda newspaper articles. I seriously question the intelligence of the analysts. If that´s all you need for brains, where do I apply? As for Morell, he covered up for the Butcher of Benghazi and is, in fact, working now for one of her organizations.

The whole administration is corrupt and puts the Mafia to shame.

CNN is testing out a new show with Alisyn Camerota, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, POLITICO has learned. On Wednesday, the three anchors taped a pilot dubbed "The 10 o’clock Show,” based out of New York, network sources said. It´s not clear whether it would be a potential primetime 10 p.m. show. Segments included one on the border crisis with "Crossfire" host S.E. Cupp and Democratic consultant Fernando Amandi and one called “Mean Tweets,” where the three anchors read mean tweets about themselves.

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressed confidence that the federal government can successfully deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border but it likely will cost billions of dollars to deal with the ongoing crisis. In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges."

Newly released testimony latest evidence
Benghazi attacks premeditated

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress.

As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation.

Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
