The Petraeus story continues to make no sense (just because the FBI is doing a potential criminal investigation in which Petraeus was not a target is no reason for the Attorney General to fail to inform the president that his DCI had some potential security issues as soon as he knew) but I love this:
The sources said agents followed department guidelines that generally bar sharing information about developing criminal investigations. The FBI is also aware of its history under former director Herbert Hoover of playing politics and digging into the lives of public figures.
Is there no depth of the evil of that skinflint Republican president in the minds of the leftist media? Now it turns out that he usurped J. Edgar’s role.
And yes, I took a screenshot. It’ll be interesting to see if they memory hole it, or provide an erratum.
[Update a while later]
OK, according to a commenter, they memory holed it. And indeed they did (just reclick the link above).
But as I said, I took a screenshot.
