WHAT THE HELL???
He agreed to appear at the hearing, to in his words, “Lay out the facts,” regarding the altering of the CIA’s Benghazi talking points memo because, again in his own words, ”The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity.”
What followed was, in fact, THE most SUBJECTIVE testimony, full of abject contradictions, he could have possibly delivered.
It was, to be blunt, nothing less than a stunning exercise in ass covering that left more questions than it answered including one very important query…
Exactly who’s ass was he covering FOR???
Michelle Bachmann, who doled out perhaps THE most pointed and forceful line of questioning during the hearing has her theory on that answer.
According to congresswoman Bachmann, Mike Morrell was, “taking the fall” for Hillary Clinton.
“She couldn’t have a better person to take the fall for her because Morrell was involved in rewriting the talking points as he was the No. 2 at CIA,” congresswoman Bachmann related to WND in a candid interview. Bachmann was submitting that Morrell was cleaning up the mess to allow Hillary, “WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE” Clinton to make a 2016 run for the oval office, “so, he can come in authoritatively [and] say, ‘No, that’s not the story. The story is the fake story we tried to push.’”
Perhaps but, Morrell would also have to be confirmed in 2016 and, the way things are shaping up for the 2014 midterms, even IF Hillary runs and wins, she may well be facing a republican majority in the house AND the senate rendering such a confirmation highly unlikely.
