 Biden’s CIA pick: a podiatrist to do brain surgery?

12.01.21.  Crookedness and unfathomable appointments goes hand-in-hand with the Democrats as the Clinton and Obama cliques have well established. It begs the question of what was owed to Willian Burns that earns him directorship of the CIA? Burns has never been an intelligence officer. Hence the question about a podiatrist to do brain surgery. However, Burns said, “I developed enormous respect for my colleagues in the CIA,” he said in an online video statement on Monday with Biden.  “I served with them in hard places around the world. I saw first hand the courage and professionalism that they displayed and the sacrifices that their families made.” He also said he would deliver the intelligence to Biden and policymakers “without a hint of partisanship.” How very decent of him!
US president-elect Joe Biden has announced he has chosen veteran diplomatWilliam Burns to be his CIA director. A former ambassador to Russia and Jordan, Mr Burns (64) had a 33-year career at the US State Department under both Republican and Democratic presidents. He rose through the ranks of the diplomatic corps to become deputy secretary of state before retiring in 2014 to run the Carnegie Endowment of International Peace.

Joe Biden appoints William Burns as CIA director
Veteran diplomat served at US State Department for 33 years

Amid tumult in the State Department after Donald Trump took office in 2017, Mr Burns held his tongue until last year when he began writing highly critical pieces of the Trump administration’s policies in Foreign Affairs and other publications.
“Bill Burns is an exemplary diplomat with decades of experience on the world stage keeping our people and our country safe and secure,” Mr Biden said.
“He shares my profound belief that intelligence must be apolitical and that the dedicated intelligence professionals serving our nation deserve our gratitude and respect.
“Ambassador Burns will bring the knowledge, judgment, and perspective we need to prevent and confront threats before they can reach our shores.
“The American people will sleep soundly with him as our next CIA director.”
Mr Burns was said to have been a candidate to be Mr Biden’s secretary of state.
Mr Biden chose Anthony Blinken instead.
Mr Burns has received three Presidential Distinguished Service Awards and the highest civilian honours from the Pentagon and the US intelligence community.
He has doctoral degrees in international relations from Oxford University, where he studied as a Marshall Scholar. – PA

    Whatever these Demorats say out loud, think the opposite. “Impartial and apolitical” my arse. They couldn’t lie straight in a tight coffin.

    President Trump has done much to promote peace between Israel and Arab Countries, with Korea (North and South).

    Will Biden close the US Embassy in Jerusalem? Will Israelis continue to visit the UAE and vice versa? Who will dialogue with Kim Jong Un face to face?
    Who will keep the reins on Iran’s Nuclear weapons program?

    Who will continue to support the UK’s Brexit status?

    These are not small achievements of Trump.

      Oh c’mon everyone knows the Dems make millions out of wars.
      Peace is butchering those in foreign lands along with their own cannon fodder.
