I am so thankful we have an honest president and transparent administration. Every day I am pleasantly surprised with more revelations of truth and openness. Take this new one about Benghazi, for example.
As reported by the stellar Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell is facing accusations from Republicans that he misled lawmakers about the Obama administration’s role in crafting the bogus storyline that a protest gone awry was to blame for the deadly Benghazi attack.
Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee allege Morell insisted the talking points were sent to the White House for informational purposes, and not for their input — but emails, later released by the administration, showed otherwise.
In late 2012, Morell met with Senators Kelly Ayotte, John McCain and Lindsey Graham. At the time the senators said Morell blamed the FBI for cutting references to al-Qaida to prevent compromising an ongoing criminal investigation. In recent interview, Graham said, “I called the FBI. They went ballistic. Within 24 hours, his statement was changed where he admitted the CIA had done it.”
Since retiring from the CIA, Morell’s resume continues to be enhanced. He’s been awarded high-profile assignments within the administration, including the NSA review panel and the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board (which I find oxymoronic to the max).
