US Senate approved CIA Director William Burns, who said he turned gray as a result of working in Russia

US Senators approved William Burns as director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Moreover, Burns was approved unanimously. His candidacy was nominated by the Joe Biden administration, which noted that the applicant for the post of CIA director had a rich track record and vast experience in the interests of the United States.


Burns has a really long track record. This list also includes work as ambassador to the Russian Federation (from 2005 to 2008) under President George W. Bush. It is noteworthy that a few days ago, William Burns, commenting on his work in Russia, said that it was this work that led to the fact that he "eventually turned gray."

Burns also served as ambassador to Jordan, served as deputy head of the State Department for Middle East affairs, and for some time served as the acting US secretary of state.

William Burns is known for his involvement in the development of a strategy for NATO's eastward expansion. At the same time, Burns himself does not hide the fact that such steps were taken against the interests of Russia, which he urged his superiors not to take into account, even while in the post of the American ambassador in Moscow. There is evidence that Mr. Burns at one time was working on the issue of Ukraine's possible entry into NATO and the deployment of an American military base in Sevastopol. Including with his submission, the Ukrainian authorities in the mid-2000s were pushed to not renew the agreement with Russia on the presence in Sevastopol of the Russian Black Sea fleet.

    Well, if he turned gray while working as an ambassador to Russia, then working in the CIA he had a direct road to a psychiatric hospital.

      No No. , do not No. , do not No. ...

      Working as an ambassador, he had to plow two jobs, combining intelligence and subversive activities with the work of a diplomat.
      And the CIA, this is a resort ...

        working as an ambassador to Russia turned gray

        Well, now we need to congratulate him that at work in Russia he did not get hemorrhoids and anuresis ... Let him be happy.

          Anuresis is a trifling matter, but with hemorrhoids, the ambassador is categorically unfit for professional use.
          Neither receive a diplomatic note, nor come to the bosses on the carpet ...

            with hemorrhoids ... not to receive a note, or to come to the authorities on the carpet.

            Then he should generally be grateful to Russia for not acquiring such wonderful qualities. Everyone around is shouting: war, war. And here is such a grateful hero to Russia. I must dissolve the CIA and send all the shpiens to rest, or better, to sunny Magadan to improve their health, undermined in the service against Russia.

        That is unlikely. Very rarely, the US ambassador also combines the work of an intelligence resident, as was the case in Iraq, while the country was actually ruled by the US military administration. But to do such tricks in a country that is the main potential enemy, even they would not allow themselves. Usually, in Russia, the functions of the head of the residency are performed by the secretary of the embassy (in the USSR) or an adviser on some (regional) issues (in Russia). These persons, as a rule, were quickly identified and became the first in line to be expelled. Risking ambassadors is expensive ...

      Mr. Burns at one time was engaged in the study of the issue of Ukraine's possible entry into NATO and the deployment of an American military base in Sevastopol.

      Another American bastard.

    The choice is not tolerant, there must be a gray-haired black man! I don’t remember that they were in command of the CIA. Are they firing immediately as scouts in Russia?

      Looking at some officials and politicians, both world and ours - it seems that some did not climb off the palm tree on their own, but they were shaken off from there, well ... or blown away by the wind.

    The best remedy for gray hair is baldness.

    Well, if he turned gray while working as an ambassador to Russia, then working in the CIA he had a direct road to a psychiatric hospital.

    All that was left was to jump out the window shouting "the Russians are coming" ... belay

    And to become famous as US Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, who jumped from the 16th floor on May 22, 1949, repeating the phrase: "Russians are coming, they are everywhere, I saw Russian soldiers."
    "Brilliant" end of a career, by the way, I was already in a psychiatric hospital.

    But the "man and the ship"! The aircraft carrier was named after Forrestal.
