Former acting CIA Director Michael Morell has taken the rage on the neck with violent statements about Syria. Monday, he said that America is going to arm local groups and give instructions to kill Iranians and Russians.
Morell was a guest on the Charlie Rose show on PBS after he had expressed his explicit support for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who wants to expand the military intervention against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad. Iran and Russia support Assad.
Morell said that killing Russians and Iranians must be done in secret.” You should not make known to the world,” he said. The former CIA director also suggested to start bombarding Syrian government buildings. He said he wanted to scare Assad.
He compared his proposal with US support for groups in the eighties with the battle against Russian troops in Afghanistan.
From that group emerged afterwards we know as Al-Qaeda, writes journalist and political commentator Murtaza Hussain for the intercept.
Morell wrote that Clinton is an extremely suitable commander in chief and a strong supporter of a more aggressive approach to the conflict in Syria.
He told Rose that he proposed to kill Russians and Iranians in Syria had not yet been discussed with Clinton.
After leaving the CIA in 2013 Morell wrote the controversial book “The Great War of Our Time”, which was heavily criticized because it defended the torture of detainees after 9/11.
After the interview with Charlie Rose, a blogger came with an appropriate title: “I ran the CIA now I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton and I want Hillary to kill lots of Russians and Iranians in Syria.”
Many experts say that the statements of Morell confirm what Washington actually does all the time secretly in Syria. “This is what the US is doing in secret and what Washington would do if Hillary wins the election,” said Vladimir Vasilyev of the Russian Academy of Sciences opposite news agency RIA Novosti. “Moscow should thank Morell for leaking important information about the real goals what Washington have in mind with Syria.”
