Edward Jay Epstein has a large and distinguished body of work on intelligence and intelligence-related issues. Among his books in the field are Legend: The Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald and Deception: The Invisible War Between the KGB and the CIA. Ed has also taken to the ebook form. His ebooks on intelligence-related issues include Killing Castro and James Jesus Angleton: Was He Right? This morning Ed has forwarded the following thoughts on the Petraeus scandal: Before we can walk the cat back, and establish the chronology of a possible penetration,

Andrew Napolitano as on Fox this afternoon, and said something that was peculiar. He said that once the FBI concluded that no law was broken, they should have stopped the investigation.
but the FBI is involved in the granting of security clearnances, and Petraeus as well as Paula were, though their own conduct, susceptible to blackmail. So the FBI had an obligation to move forward.
Judge Andrew is off his rocker on this one.

I would add:

11. When did the FBI notify Eric Holder in Justice? The truth-not the lie

12. How many times since that date did Eric Holder meet with Obama and on what dates?

13. When did Holder tell the President that national security may have been breached by Petraeus? The truth-not the lie.

14. How many times did Mueller of the FBI meet with Obama and on what dates?

15. When did Mueller discuss the national security breach with Obama.

16. How many times and what dates did James Clapper meet with Obama during this investigation?

17. When did Clapper first discuss the investigation with Obama.

18. When was Petraeus first advised he was under investigation and by whom? The truth-not the lie.

Ed, on intelligence, has neglected the biggest, most important question. "Why is the Administration so desperate to coverup the BENGHAZI debacle, and what exactly is 0bama hiding?"

Agree Judge Napolitano is wacky. All laws go out the window when there is a HINT of scandal with chief intelligence officer. Just as in the military you give up certain rights for the safety of the nation. You don´t quit looking after a cursory review. Petraeus and Broadwell are the best of the best when it comes to hiding stuff for crying out loud. They are still digging and still coming up with more. Who knows where it will lead?

This article is like a little portal into another dimension. Slip through it. Google the names. Follow the leads. Bookmark it all. How does a patriot play the game when he knows there is a traitor at the top selling him out?

Re #1, it has been my observation that many at Fox News (the only channel we watch for news) are missing pieces of a big puzzle like this one. They don´t seem to know what the others who anchor news programs on Fox have said - earlier in the day or even the day before.

I wouldn´t be surprised if Napolitano, judge turned news personality, wasn´t giving his opinion without having the entire story.

The story is complex and moving very fast, and obfuscation along the way has further complicated it. Right now most of these newsers should stick with reporting the news and letting it unfold.

That said, Napolitano and Megyn Kelly are both weak on the law - and she misses major facts in her reporting of stories. Skews her reporting and the opinions she always gives.

I always thought that sooner or later one of Valerie Jarrett´s "schemes" would blow up in Obama´s face. I think the Benghazi scandal may be it. The story won´t go away, it just keeps getting more and more convoluted and eye opening. Already the Reps in the House are refusing to allow Susan Rice to be confirmed in any high Obama positions because of her lying to the American public about Benghazi.

Try this scenario: Obama wants to help the Brotherhood again, so he sends Chris Stephens to buy on the black market, with tax payer money, all the Stinger missiles he can from Gadaffi´s looted arsenal. He has a huge wad of money, and a secret mission. His nerves get on edge because his sellers are scary, and his buyers are impatient.They disrespect Stephens because like Obama, he is gay and advertises for gay security guards. They can double as "dates. "The bigger the haul of weapons, the more dangerous the mission. Finally, the place is overrun, the missiles, the money, and the paperwork are stolen, and the rubes in the media wait for their talking points.

A Star Player Accused, and

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

How Safe Are U.S. Ferries?

Almost 300 people are missing off the coast of South Korea after a ferry there, carrying mostly schoolchildren, capsized and sank. About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell. "This particular ferry was built in Japan, who make some of the best ships in the world. It wasn´t anywhere near full and it was travelling a well-worn

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

Here’s What the CIA Director

The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

Liberals in rose-colored glasses
consider ObamaCare a ‘victory’

Ever since ObamaCare supposedly hit the arbitrary target of 7 million sign-ups by March 31, its supporters have been taking the most premature victory lap since conservative proponents of the Iraq War (like me) crowed about the results of the three elections inside Iraq in 2005 and how they demonstrated the country was on the verge of a historic peace. “It’s all over but the shouting: ObamaCare is working,” said Eugene Robinson in Tuesday’s Washington Post. “All the naysaying in the world can’t drown out mounting evidence that the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, is a real success.” Those

South Korea says hundreds missing

South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a passenger ferry sank off that country´s southern coast, leaving at least two dead and seven injured. A government official had said earlier Wednesday that around 100 people were unaccounted for, but the number was later revised upward due to a tallying error. The ferry was carrying 477 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to

Could the Boston Marathon

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
