Dick Morris: Hillary orchestrated Panetta's "hit" on Obama

“I think Hillary put him up to it,” Morris said during an interview on John Catsimatidis’s radio show to air Sunday on New York’s 970 AM.

“What Panetta is doing is a hit – a contract killing – for Hillary. Panetta at core is a Clinton person, not an Obama person. By accurately and truthfully describing the deliberations in the [Obama] cabinet, he makes Hillary look better, and he makes Obama look worse … And I think he’ll get his reward in heaven.”

Panetta made headlines earlier this week when he said the president has been too willing to “step back and give up” when faced with challenges.
