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


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.”

    Harvard is fast becoming the Ryerson of US schools, and that is not a good thing.

    Chelsea Manning a “visiting fellow” ? Sure why not ? Why not to award anyone who gives away military secrets because he wants his dick cut off an honorary law degree ?

      Hey here in Canada we give the Order of Canada to butcher abortionists. Nothing makes sense anymore.

        But not to a “too controversial” ethicist. I note Dr Somerville is back in Australia. Canada’s loss.
