Michael Morell steps down as CIA deputy director
CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell retired from his post Wednesday, after managing the resignation of former CIA Director David Petraeus over an extramarital affair, and defending the agency’s performance over the attack on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.
Brennan said he Morell will be replaced by Avril Haines, currently a deputy assistant to the president and legal adviser at the National Security Council.
Morell agreed to the State Department’s request to remove a reference to militants in a controversial memo of talking points on the Libya attack.
Morell also drew criticism for stating that the CIA’s interrogation program produced some useful information
