Mike Morell was the Deputy CIA Director when President Obama and Hillary Clinton botched the joint 2011 CIA and State Department operation “Zero Footprint” in Libya.
“Zero Footprint” was the covert operation initiated by Secretary of State Clinton and CIA Director Leon Panetta. Director Panetta left the CIA just before the operation went sideways and resulted in the attack on the Benghazi State Dept./CIA annex September 11th, 2012. General David Petraeus was the new CIA Director when the Benghazi attack happened. Immediately, General Petraeus became a risk. [Deep Background]
After the Benghazi attack, the relationship between journalist Paula Broadwell and General Petraeus was used by ODNI James Clapper to remove the CIA Director.
Immediately after the election of 2012 CIA Director David Petraeus resigned (Nov 9th) and interim CIA Director Morrel took over. This is why Petraeus never testified about CIA operations to the Senate panel investigating Benghazi, Mike Morrel took his place.
Morrel’s job was to provide cover for the background operation (2010, Zero Footprint) where Obama, Clinton and Panetta provided covert weapons, including shoulder fired missiles, to Libyan “rebels”, aka Libyan al-Qaeda. AND Morrel’s second role was to cover for the extended CIA operation (2011-2012) where the CIA was buying back those missiles and shipping them into Syria for use overthrowing the Assad regime; the second operation was based out of the secret (at the time) State Dept/CIA facility in Benghazi.
Morrel was essentially the CIA narrative ‘fixer’. He was up to his eyeballs in the cover-up behind Benghazi 2012 and 2013. After Acting Deputy Morrel testified to congress about the CIA involvement around Benghazi, and the issues of terrorism vs. Islamic movie (happy squirrel chase) etc. Mike Morrel was replaced at the CIA by John Brennan.
To reward for services rendered, both Hillary Clinton and CBS immediately hired Mike Morrel. CBS News President David Rhodes -who hired Morrel- is the brother of the White House’s Ben Rhodes; who wrote the false ‘talking points’ about the You Tube video as motive for the Benghazi attack.
Morrel provided the cover for President Obama, Secretary Clinton, Director Panetta and all of the schemes surrounding the covert missile delivery to Libya, redistribution to Syria, and financing through Qatar.
Fast forward to today…. Now a CBS News senior national security contributor, Michael Morell appears with The Wilson Center’s Jean Lee to discuss the future of North Korean relations after President Trump’s historic meeting with Kim Jong Un.
Everything about this interview, including the narrative surrounding Kim Jong-Un, is pure CIA horsepucky…. all of it. Notice how Morell is reliant upon the affirmation of specific talking points on the page notes in front of him.
This is all part of one big con-job by over indulged institutionalists who have held court over Washington DC for years. Once you see the strings on the Marionettes, you just can’t watch the pantomime without seeing them.
All of the opposition to Donald Trump is one long continuum of self-interest and risk management.
