    CIA Deputy Director Steps Down 'To Spend More Time With His Family'

    CIA Deputy Director Steps Down 'To Spend More Time With His Family' | CNS News

    (CNSNews.com) – CIA deputy director Michael Morell, who played a key role in editing the administration’s controversial talking points on last September’s terror attack in Benghazi, announced his retirement on Wednesday after 33 years of service.

    The White House immediately announced that President Obama had appointed Morell to serve on the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, an independent advisory body.

    Obama also nominated as the next CIA deputy director Avril Haines, currently deputy assistant to the president and legal advisor to the National Security Council. She will be the first woman to hold the CIA post.

    “Whenever someone involved in the rough and tumble of Washington decides to move on, there is speculation in various quarters about the ‘real reason,’” Morell said. “But when I say that it is time for my family, nothing could be more real than that.”
    I find it interesting that this 54 year old guy retired a year early. He's obviously a CSRS employee and got out on a VERA. Interesting indeed.

    Early exits, it seems, are catching.

    If he didn't get a VERA, then not sure how he is retiring before age 55.
