” What follows is an attempt to round out the picture on the ambitious 57-year-old Morell.I suppose we need to start with Morell telling PBS/CBS interviewer Charlie Rose on Aug. 8 that he (Morell) wanted to “make the Iranians pay a price in Syria. … make the Russians pay a price in Syria.”
Rose: “We make them pay the price by killing Russians?”
Rose: “And killing Iranians?”
Morell: “Yes … You don’t tell the world about it. … But you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.”
This interview, though, is a must for those interested in gauging the caliber of bureaucrats who have bubbled to the top of the CIA since the disastrous tenure of George Tenet (sorry, the interview goes on and on for 46 minutes).
Refresh my memory...is "uttering threats" not a crime in the United States anymore? It used to be a crime in most civilized nations. Russia, Iran and Syria should have charged Morrell with "uttering threats" right after that interview. They might have saved a few lives. It is not too late to start an investigation of Mike Morell on the charge of "uttering threats". If the US had a justice system at all...someone at the top would surely do it...just to keep the stench down.
Washington's blog is reporting that the autopsy done on the body of Vitaly Churkin did not disclose any evidence that he died of a heart attack:
No Clear Cause for Russian UN Ambassador's Sudden Death
New York City's medical examiners have failed to determine what caused the sudden death this week of Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin. The medical examiners concluded that further study, which usually includes toxicology tests and other screenings, would be needed before they could say why Churkin died unexpectedly Monday at age 64. The additional tests could take weeks to complete.
As I said in my earlier post...the UN needs to be moved out of New York...to prevent the stench from drifting down upon any other "suspicious deaths" of UN representatives. Until that happens...I have this suggestion for Russian Federation President Putin. Don't replace Churkin at the UN. Leave his seat empty. Take on the role of UN Ambassador yourself... and do it via Skype on a laptop placed on the desk in front of Churkin's empty seat. Skype technology negates the necessity to have representatives show up live for meetings anymore. Particularly meetings held in halls infested with rats, snakes and "pariah" vipers.
The first step in solving any problem is "naming it". Russia has to speak publicly about the stench. They have to act...within legal parameters against the monsters, like Mike Morell, who are stinking up the planet.
