CIA Deputy Director Resigning, Being Replaced by White House Lawyer

Top Rated


Update: The person set to replace Morell as deputy is — ta da — a White House lawyer who’s worked on national security issues. Is she being chosen because new CIA chief John Brennan knows/respects her from his time working with her in the WH or because O wants a tighter hold on the CIA and needs loyalists in charge there to make it happen?

Update: If O wanted a scapegoat for NSA snooping, which would be really weird given that he’s been defending the snooping himself, he’d can the NSA’s director, no? Morell seems a bit far afield to blame for that unless there’s something we don’t know.

 

Morell told The Washington Post he decided last month to resign because “I want to and I need to devote more attention to my family.”

“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 said in a CIA statement. “But when I say that it is time for my family, nothing could be more real than that.”
