    "According to intelligence officials, Panetta erupted in a tirade last month during a meeting with a senior White House staff member. Panetta was reportedly upset over plans by Attorney General Eric Holder to open a criminal investigation of allegations that CIA officers broke the law in carrying out certain interrogation techniques that President Obama has termed "torture.""

    And now that Holder is doing Obama's bidding by releasing the "Torture Memos" to deflect attention from the ObamaCare Pogrom look for Obama to start trying to find a replacement for Panetta.

    Is Obama's politicizing of Intel gathering a good thing?

    Panetta's a goner.

    Frank

    Where in your link does Panetta say "Quit Playing games with Intel or I'll Quit! "???
    Are you making up quotes again??

    Nobody in this country is above the law......NOBODY
    If crimes were committed they deserve to be investigated. If laws were broken, people deserve to be punished.

    Where did I put "Quit Playing games with Intel or I'll Quit!" in quotes?

    What the Hell is wrong with you? Do I have to copy and paste the whole paragraph or can I just do a pithy summary?

    As AG, Holder can pursue whatever he deems within his purview. Obama can't say jack about it.

    I don't like Panetta anyway, never did.

    Obama going to replace Panetta with a yes man. The State run media released that article now to let Panetta know his time is up.
