Michael Morell is a former CIA acting director and CIA deputy director. He stated on US television that he wanted to assassinate people close to the leaders of Russia, Iran and Syria.[1] [2]

“What they [ie those directing US policy in Syria] need is to have the Russians and Iranians pay a little price.... When we were in Iraq, the Iranians were giving weapons to the Shia militia, who were killing American soldiers, right? The Iranians were making us pay a price. We need to make the Iranians pay a price in Syria. We need to make the Russians pay a price..... the killing of Russians and Iranians should be undertaken covertly, so you don’t tell the world about it, you don’t stand up at the Pentagon and say ‘we did this.’ But you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.” [2]

One month after setting out this murderous agenda Vladimir Putin's "favourite chauffeur" was killed in a highly suspicious head on collision with an oncoming car.[3] [4]
