However, a recent media investigation revealed that he worked with Clinton when she served at the State Department and played a critical role in the Benghazi cover-up.
Morell lied about his role in preparation of notorious CIA talking points for US Ambassador Susan Rice’s address to Sunday morning talk shows in the wake of the Benghazi attack that left four US citizens, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, dead while the survivors languished against a brutal band of terrorists for thirteen hours without any aide from the State Department or Pentagon.
Rice blamed the attacks on a YouTube video that alleged triggered a spontaneous protest in Libya. After that Congress pressed her to provide sources from which she determined that the incident was traced to the anti-Islamic video. In the process, it was revealed that her talking points had been prepared by a joint team of intelligence services, the White House and Hillary Clinton’s staffers. It was also revealed that in the blueprint of the talking points al Qaeda had initially been mentioned before Morrell scrubbed reference to the terrorist group for presumably political purposes.
“So I called the FBI,” Graham recalls. “They said, no, they didn’t change the talking points. They were furious.”
“At 4 p.m. that day, the CIA called me and said Morell ‘misspoke’ in his meeting with me, and that the CIA deleted [the reference to al Qaeda], but they couldn’t give a reason why.”
According to the Frontpage, the CIA Chief of Station in Tripoli reported to the CIA brass bulletin about the situation on the ground in Libya the day after the attack and clearly indicated that a video was not a reason for the attack.
Graham gave an unvarnished explanation for what prompted Morell to ‘correct’ the talking points: “If the truth had been known that al Qaeda killed four Americans seven weeks before an election, it would have been a different political story.”
