Former CIA Director And Hillary Supporter: "We Should Kill Russians And Iranians Covertly"

Tyler Durden's picture

Last Friday, former deputy and acting director of the CIA, Mike Morell became the latest neocon to join the Hillary bandwagon with a NYT Op-Ed titled "I Ran the C.I.A. Now I'm Endorsing Hillary Clinton" in which he not only praised Hillary but slammed Donald Trump, as follows: "Mrs. Clinton is highly qualified to be commander in chief. I trust she will deliver on the most important duty of a president — keeping our nation safe. Second, Donald J. Trump is not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security....  In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation."

What Morell, who sought to portray himself as bipartisan, did not say, is that he was an active participant in painting the Benghazi attacks as caused by YouTube video. When Hillary Clinton says 'best information provided by the intelligence community" she is referring to her man in the CIA: Michael Morell was the CIA official who crafted the "talking points" on Benghazi with the Obama White House according to his own testimony in 2014 to Congress. In emails later uncovered by Congress, CIA Director David Petraeus called the resulting talking-point language 'useless.'

What he also forgot to mention is that in 2013, he left the CIA to join a DC consultancy group with strong links to Hillary Clinton. Beacon Global Strategies, Morell's employer, is a ten-person firm whose co-founders include Philippe Reines, a senior counselor to Hillary Clinton when she ran the State Department. Reines is still her spokesman, serving in that capacity in what New York magazine calls 'a second full-time job. “And if she runs again... Reines will be onboard,” the magazine concluded in Ferbruary 2014. Meaning that Morell, as a senior official at Beacon, will also likely be part of the Clinton spin machine.

But what he most certainly did not mention is that when it comes to the pinnacle of neocons (for Hillary), none matches Mr. Morell. In fact as the following interview excerpt with Charlie Rose conducted last night reveals, Morell may be considered the latest war criminal who openly conspired to "covertly" kill Russians and Iranians in Syria.

Attempting to justify what is essentially a conspiracy to commit acts of murder, terrorism and war, Morell compared his proposal to alleged covert operations waged against the US during its illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003 and onward. The difference between the US invasion of Iraq and that of Russia's intervention in Syria, however, is significant.  The US invaded Iraq in 2003, predicated upon a premeditated lie, while Russia was invited to aid the acting government of Syria.

Here is the key exchange:

Morell: We need to make the Iranians pay the price in Syria; we need to make the Russians pay the price.

Rose: We make them pay the price by killing Russians and killing Iranians?

Morell: Yes. Covertly. You don't tell the world about it. You don't stand at the Pentagon and say we did this. But you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran. I want to go after those things that Assad sees as his personal power base. I want to scare Assad. I want to go after his presidential car. I want to bomb his offices in the middle of the night. I want to destroy his presidential aircraft. I want to destroy his presidential helicopters. I want to make him think we are coming after him.

Since Morell's comments in 2015, two Russian helicopters have been shot down, one by terrorist organisation "the Islamic State," and one by Jabhat Al Nusra, a US State Department designated terrorist organisation also known as "Al Qaeda in Syria."

While we don't know if the Kremlin would be interested by this admission, we do know that for Mike Morell there is just one presidential candidate he would endorse: Hillary.

I want Morell's home targeted by Kalibr missiles. I want Morell's wife beheaded by ISIS. I want Morell's children sold to smelly Saudi apes. I want the video of Morell being boned in the ass by a Rottweiler to go viral.

Covertly killing Russians in Syria when Russia has been invited by Syria and the US hasn't seems to violate international law.

Will someone ask General Allen, if this will lead to a civil war of some kind?

I wonder if Putin would respond in kind?


McCormick No. 9's picture

Someone in the Russian apparatus is paid to read ZH daily. I'm sure Putin on some level is aware of this attitude in certain circles of American policy-makers.

Saying such things won't make Hillary's job easier vis a vis the Russians. But maybe she is so damn smart, she likes to fuck things up just in order to make it more challenging for her to fix them. That or she's just fucking stupid.

No, the Debt-Money Monopolists are killing off ordinary Jewish people, too.

Lord Acton had it right...

"The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks."
~Lord Acton

Napoleon had it right...

“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”
~Napoléon Bonaparte

It is the people (including 99.x% of Jewish people) against the Debt-Money Monopolists.

Saeed's picture

I second this comment even as a Muslim. Many ordinary Jews paid the price at the hands of their devilish elders.

Read "Pawns in the Game" by William Guy Carr or "Illuminati and Terrorism - A 3,000 year History" by David Livingstone, and you will understand that the elite bankers will sacrifice their own race in order to promote their agenda - corner the world for their gains - absolutely devilish.

Wahhabi Deviant Sect of Islam was created (like the deviant Nation of Islam in the US - not necessarily for the same reasons but to defame Islam) to justify war against Islam (WW III), and supported by Saudi rulers (who are not Muslims) - instead they want to defame Islam by supporting these Wahhabi ISIS thugs.

Saeed, glad to have you in the "awake" club. Thanks for the references. We all know the Rothschild's (who claim to be Jewish, but not actually be Jewish - research that one!) are the premier banking family.

But I think it is wrong to assign it all to them.

I think European Royalty is in the Debt-Money Monopolist class, too. It's a club, and ordinary people aren't in it.

The reason I bring this up is because these people have allegiance to anything except their own greed. And even if they did, there appear to be non-Jewish people hiding in the background of the Debt-Money Monopolist system so it isn't correct to pin Debt-Money Tyranny onto Jewish people or even their "leaders." Really, these SOBs lead everyone by the nose via the paycheck they produce through debt.

As a Christian, it is good to see awake people focused on the real enemy of all ordinary people - the Debt-Money Monopolist Mega-Corporate Fascist Empire system... the ultimate manifestation of the Roman Empire system the world has ever seen.

HowdyDoody's picture

Do you mean specific Russians / Iranians or just any old Russian or Iranian who happens to get in the way?

How many do you propose to kill? How many will satisfy your bloodlust? 6,000,001?

ISIS has just declared they too wish to kill Russians. So how does this what this man propse differ from terrorism? Are USG and ISIS now fully merged entities?

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

No the CIA didn't CREATE ISIS.

They just told some jihadists there was $500m worth of weapons being protected by 2 or 3 dudes at the American Embassy in a ltitle place called Benghazi, Libya, and looked the other way while the jihadists went and 'secured' that $500m of weaponry.

Which in turn led to the creation of ISIS.  So clearly not involved in creating ISIS.  Nor were the CIA's friends at Mossad...

"Covertly, You don't tell the world about it".  Why should this be different than any other scenario on the planet that the "Central Instigation Agency" has been involved with?  It would give me great pleasure to see this Piece of Shit Morell die a slow, painful Death.  God knows all these worms have it coming.

Morell the Moron had better keep looking over his shoulder.

The Ruskies or Iranians might return the favor ahead of time.

It's hard to believe that the CIA produces such idiots.

This guy takes the cake for being a fucking moron!  I would think there may be just a few people at the CIA who would cringe at his statement!  Like, the US is going to kill Russians and Iranians covertly and THEY will not know nor relaliate in an asymmetric way!  Oh well, the idiots are definitely running the insane asylum.  The good thing about statements like this is that there are half way decent people in many 'allied' countries that are rethinking their alliance with the US.  There are decent people who do not want to be walked into a world war under the American banner.

Herd, this wasn't a one time arming... it has been continuous. There is a reason nobody in the Debt-Money Monopolist financed "media" is asking how al Qaeda and ISIS are getting their weapons and supplies. Waging war for 5 years isn't easy and take LOT of resources.

Also, WHO has the Libyan central bank been financing since it was set up before al Qaeda was used to assassinate Gaddafi and overthrow the best example of debt-free socialism on the planet (that doesn't make it good, BTW)?

There is a Russian national called Victor Bout who is currently sitting in a federal prison because he was [entrapped] in a recorded conversation where he said he wants to kill Americans. Maybe Vlad can toss this Morell lizzard-person into the Lubyanka and throw away the key?

Surfice it to say, many people would pay to see that. Better yet. Make it public for all the world to see. This would deter future Criminal, Murderous Psychipaths & Oraganizations from acting in the same manner.

The fact that we all have to worry about the CIA killing a potential President simply because the man puts America first, really says it all.

The Agency is Cancer. Why are we even waiting for them to kill another one of our people to act? There should be no question about the CIA's future in the US.

Dissolved & dishonored. Its members locked away or punished for Treason. Their reputation is so bad and has been for so long, that the fact that you joined them should be enough to justify arrest and Execution for Treason, Crimes Against Humanity & Crimes Against The American People.

Tarjan's picture

This sick and sickening Morell creature was at the apex of the US government! Does he think that other governments around the world will not take note of these insane remarks and defend their interests? Perhaps the Russians will respond by "covertly" killing US personnel in Syria.

People like this Morell are too fucking stupid for words.


beemasters's picture

They always do forewarn you...

just like:

“It is in the Jewish interest, it is in humanity’s interest that whites experience a genocide. Until white children are burned alive, white women raped, mutilated, murdered and all white men who have not been slaughtered watch powerlessly as their people are terrorized; only then will mankind be on a more equal footing, ready to discuss white privilege and the apparent chip on the shoulder that minorities have.” – Rabbi Ishmael Levitts

And it's slowly happening now, although not so successfully yet. They still need to get more Muslims on board to do their dirty tricks. They can only do that much with false flags and entrapment.

conscious being's picture

It looks like certain Jews have declared war on us and all the organs of state and media have been so arrainged that the language, to talk about it is forbidden.

People go on and on about the crazy Muslims. Who is driving the crazy Muslims?

This, straight from the lips of a Shillary supporter...but it could have been said by Cankles herself. Remember these words, the next time one of these people gets all preachy about 'World Peace'.

Fuck off, spammer.


One more name to remember when this escalates into a shooting war. It disgusts me that we as a country keep elevating socipaths like this into positions of power where they have a very real chance of killing us all. If there was any justice in the world, him and his like minded ilk would be dropped off in syria or eastern ukraine and let them put their money where their mouth is.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon has already shared intel with Russia regarding Syria. There will be a time when we see the US army fighting the CIA mercenaries. Just give it time, if it's not happening already.

"There will be a time when we see the US army fighting the CIA mercenaries."

It is absolutely happenning already. US special forces [a.k.a. The Pentagon], are on the ground in Syria helping the Kurds fight ISIS [a.k.a The CIA]
