Former acting CIA chief Mike Morell resigns from Harvard in protest of Chelsea Manning invitation

Freak.

The former deputy and acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency is resigning as a non-resident senior fellow from Harvard’s Kennedy School after Chelsea Manning was invited to be a visiting fellow this year.

In his resignation letter on Thursday, Michael J. Morell said he “cannot be part of an organization” that “honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.”
