#1 I know nothing of the ends of outs of our spook agencies, but I do hope that it must be next to impossible for the FBI to be digging into the CIA Director's personal email, and no one, in the CIA, Justice Department or WH knew it?

I just find that totally unbelievable -- sure there is always competition between the two agencies, but there are probably also professional friendships, that reach across the agencies and something like this would have been shared.

Seemingly, Rep Canton knew a couple of weeks before the announcement.

Not buying that in this administration, "I know nothn'"

If true no one knew the FBI was spying on the Director of CIA -- someone needs to be canned, and it's not just the General....

#2 I would figure that, er, monitoring of the CIA director by the FBI would be a long-standing practice. A Hooverism, as it were.

#3 "Though Broadwell was a West Point graduate and had served in Army intelligence"

If that's true - then all these news reports are focusing on the wrong person. Forget Petraeus. this lady should have known better. MUCH better.

#4 So Nike knew more about Tiger than the gov knew about Petraeus? That is the claim?

#5 THERE YA GO ...

Petraeus quits and becomes the new promoter for Tiger Woods. This has got "success" written all over it :-)

#6 So long as it is a green business. Although in this case Tiger might get a waiver.

#7 HT: Breitbart:

"They had to have known and for them to say they were intercepting e-mails and reading the CIA Director emails and not reporting that to the White House is bull... what the DNI should have done should have done is call him and say 'What is this? What is this? What is going on here?' instead of waiting... They are not telling the truth. They get pants on fire award. The White House is not telling the truth. It is politically engineered by all of you would not be reading the doing the investigation in the diameter of the justice without informing the white house. They are lying." - Gary Bernsten, Former CIA Operative

#9 These 'aides' would have been interviewed by the FBI during Petraeus' background check.

Is it really plausible that aides would not have mentioned this 'odd' behaviour, especially as it was security related?

Is it plausible that the FBI would not have had a closer look at the oddly behaving person in Petraeus' entourage?

Could the FBI really have failed to notice this affair?
