Meet CIA Intelligence Director Michael Morell

“If the Central Intelligence Agency screws up another weapons-of-mass-destruction report, we’ll know exactly where to lay the blame: Michael Morell.”

What is this?

A friend of mine (who may or may not wish to be identified!) sent me word that someone from his alma mater and my near-namesake has just gotten a promotion at the ‘ol Central Intelligence Agency. Apparently this fellow has been some kind of CIA Deputy Director for some years now, and is movin’ on up. And this is causing all-American patriots to rejoice.

It’s fascinating to me because in my younger days I saw myself as either a costumed super-hero or an intelligence agent. (I’m talking teenage years, mind you. Though the thought of donning colorful long underwear or spandex still has its appeal…) My life as a friend and follower of Jesus has caused me to choose a dramatically different relationship to power, so seeing headlines like these are kind of like looking at “the path that could have been.” I have no regrets for my life-trajectory thus far. I hope the best for Mr. Morell as well.

    I was a class mate of

    Dr. Morell in highschool (cuyahoga falls, ohio). I think it is fantastic to know that one of our home town people has achieved the sucess that he has, and I have every confidence that he can right what had horribly gone wrong within out intel. community…..tell our politicians what they need to hear, not what they want to hear!!!!, no more manipulations of half truths…….
