Morrell and Benghazi

“What is most troubling is that the CIA Chief of Station in Libya repeatedly informed Washington that no demonstration ever occurred in Benghazi on the day of the attack, and that his views were consistently disregarded and overruled by CIA officials in Washington, including Mr. Morell, The Chief of Station was the agency’s senior leader on the ground during the terrorist attack in Benghazi, so it is unfathomable why his views were not taken more seriously.” — statement from Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz.; Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.

Here’s a question I would have asked: “Mr. Morrell. Why should the CIA bother to put people ‘on the ground’ and in harm’s way, if you’re not going to listen to them?”

By the way, McCain, Graham, and Ayotte are the U.S. Senate’s version of the old school TV show “The Mod Squad.”
