(National Sentinel) Espionage: Former CIA Director Mike Morrell’s tenure as a non-resident senior fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government is coming to an end after the Left-wing administrators invited former U.S. Army Spc. Bradley (a.k.a. Chelsea) Manning to be a visiting fellow (gal?).
As The Washington Times reports, Morrell said in his resignation letter he can’t be part of an institution that “honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.”
“Ms. Manning was found guilty of 17 serious crimes, including six counts of espionage, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, an entity that CIA Director Mike Pompeo says operates like an adversarial foreign intelligence service,” Morell wrote. “Senior leaders in the military have stated publicly that the leaks by Ms. Manning put the lives of US soldiers at risk.”
By extending the invite, Harvard will “assist Ms. Manning in her long-standing effort to legitimize the criminal path that she took to prominence,” the letter continued, and “may encourage others to leak classified information as well.”
While Morrell said he supports Manning’s right to become a transgender and even serve in the military, “it is my right, indeed my duty, to argue that the School’s decision is wholly inappropriate and to protest it by resigning from the Kennedy School – in order to make the fundamental point that leaking classified information is disgraceful and damaging to our nation,” he wrote.
Nothing Morrell said about what Manning did was incorrect. That Manning did what he/she did it after he/she swore an oath to defend the country is worse than disgraceful, it’s unforgivable.
For all the insane Left-wing outcry over President Donald J. Trump’s pardon of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio recently, let’s never forget that Manning, a true criminal and a traitor to his/her country, was pardoned by President Obama.
In a different era, Manning would not have been alive to be pardoned, after having swung by the neck from a rope.
Update: 15 Sept. 2017  Harvard administration has decided to withdraw its invitation to Manning. “We are withdrawing the invitation to her to serve as a Visiting Fellow — and the perceived honor that it implies to some people — while maintaining the invitation for her to spend a day at the Kennedy School and speak in the Forum,” Douglas Elmendorf, dean of the John F. Kennedy School of Government, said in a statement.
