THE “OBAMA AND HILLARY WHITEWASH”
by Capt Joseph R. John (Ret), ©2016, Chairman, CombatVeteransForCongress.org
(Aug. 8, 2016) — The Obama administration summarily removed General David Petraeus as Director of the CIA for doing 1/1000th of what Hillary did when she transmitted 33,000 emails on an unclassified server, in violation of the National Security Act. General Petraeus knew too much about how Hillary turned down US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens’ 12 direct and urgent requests for additional security for the US Mission in Benghazi over a 5½ month period.
Despite over 600 requests from multiple US Agencies and the US Military to increase additional security, Hillary turned down every request, dooming four Americans to their deaths in Benghazi. The occupant of the Oval Office completed the betrayal by refusing to authorize “Cross Border Authority” so a 130-man USMC Fast Team in Sigonella, Italy, 377 miles away (1 hr. and 50 min. by air), and two fully-armed F-16Cs on the tarmac in Aviano, Italy, 1044 miles away (2 hrs. and 30 min. away) could be dispatched to save the lives of Americans under attack by over 125 radical Islamic terrorists in Benghazi for 13 hours. The betrayal doomed the ambassador, two Navy SEALs, and a communications specialist to be murdered—-Mike Morell was an integral part of the Obama and Hillary Whitewash and cover-up as follows:
On September 12, 2012, CIA Officer Hunter Stevens, the Libyan Embassy Station Chief in Tripoli, Libya, submitted his official report on the attack on the US Mission in Benghazi to his superiors in CIA Headquarters in Langley, VA. Since General Petraeus had been summarily relieved by Obama, the report was delivered to Mike Morrell, Obama’s newly-appointed Acting CIA Director—Morell would ultimately disgrace himself and betray 57 years of honorable service by the men and women of the CIA.
What every American should know is that the CIA Station Chief’s Report is inviolate and “NO ONE” is authorized to change its content!!! The only duty for the CIA Station Chief is to report “facts” as they occur. It is not the responsibility of the CIA to develop “talking points” for political hacks like Susan Rice who lie to five networks about the premeditated attack by Islamic terrorists. In the continuing narrative, Morell compromised the good work of the CIA by developing talking points and altering the CIA Station Chief’s report.
CIA Station Chief Hunter Stevens’ report stated: There was “no” demonstration in Benghazi in response to a YouTube video.
Mike Morrell made a massive edit to the CIA Station Chief’s report without authority and in violation of CIA regulations, in order to make it fit the “UNTRUTHFUL” narrative that a YouTube video was responsible for a demonstration that went bad, but no one ever saw that YouTube video anywhere in Libya.
Mike Morrell changed the word “terrorist” in the CIA Station Chief’s report to “demonstrators” throughout.
Mike Morrell removed all references to “Al Qaeda” from the CIA Station Chief’s report.
Mike Morrell removed the phrase from the CIA Station Chief’s report, “attackers were not an escalation of a demonstration.”
However, despite Mike Morrell’s attempt to “illegally” sanitize the CIA Station’s Chief’s report to fit Hillary’s and Obama’s narrative, it was considered unsuitable when they first saw Morell’s edits, and the doctored CIA Report was returned to Mike Morrell for more edits, as it could not be released to the press and public in its then-current doctored form.
Because the CIA Station Chief’s report inferred the CIA had warned the State Department about an attack on the US Mission in Benghazi, on Hilary’s orders, the State Department had Mike Morrell use his heavy hand to eliminate that information from the CIA Station Chief’s report.
Mike Morrell, then told Jake Sullivan, Hillary’s Chief of Staff at the State Department, that he would be happy to develop appropriate “talking points” for release to support Hillary’s desired narrative. He then participated in developing the lies that Susan Rice delivered on five Sunday television broadcasts on September 16, 2012.
Back at CIA Headquarters in Langley, not only did Mike Morrell discount the CIA Station Chief’s report, but he also refused to consider the reports of 32 Americans employed by the CIA and the State Department who were on the ground and witnessed the Benghazi attack firsthand. Instead, Morrell relied on the advice of a CIA analyst in a Washington, DC office who wasn’t in Benghazi and didn’t witness the attack. Powerful forces behind the scenes in the Obama administration had been muzzling the 32 witnesses who witnessed the attack.
When US Senators heard how Morell altered the CIA Station Chief’s report, they summoned him to a Senate hearing. Morell told the Senators that the FBI made the above-listed alterations to the CIA Station Chief’s report. Throughout his testimony to the Senators, Morell repeatedly lied and perjured himself and should have been charged, convicted, and jailed.
Mike Morrell refused to allow the CIA to do an internal investigation about the Benghazi attack on the US Mission; that is not only highly irregular, but also a flagrant attempt to whitewash and cover up what actually led up to the attack and occurred during it.
When the FBI was informed by US Senators that Morell accused them of altering the CIA Station Chief’s report, the leaders at FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC were furious and confronted Morell. Morrell quickly backed down and admitted he made the illegal alterations to the report.
Mike Morrell is now being paid a lucrative salary at Beacon Global Strategies, LLC, working for Phiippe Raines, who was the senior advisor to Hillary when she was sworn in as Secretary of State, Raines founded Beacon Global Strategies, LLC—they are the Clinton Gatekeepers.
Now the left-of-center liberal media establishment is issuing press releases, proudly proclaiming that the “liar” and “traitor” Mike Morrell endorsed Hillary, as if it is a badge of honor, and that Morell’s endorsement somehow gives Hillary’s campaign credibility. Those press releases this weekend just confirm that Mike Morell was involved in the cover-up and whitewash of the Battle of Benghazi from the very beginning. The below-listed articles comments on Morrell’s dishonesty.
