“WASHINGTON -- A secret Central Intelligence Agency initiative terminated by Director Leon Panetta was an attempt to carry out a 2001 presidential authorization to capture or kill al Qaeda operatives, according to former intelligence officials familiar with the matter. [...] According to current and former government officials, the agency spent money on planning and possibly some training. It was acting on a 2001 presidential legal pronouncement, known as a finding, which authorized the CIA to pursue such efforts. The initiative hadn't become fully operational at the time Mr. Panetta ended it.”

CIA Director Leon Panetta

Would you buy a used car from this guy?
Let me see if I understand this — a secret CIA initiative, terminated by Director Panetta, was an attempt to carry out a 2001 presidential authorization to capture or kill al Qaeda operatives? OK, I think I understand what this means — the CIA was planning to do what they are paid to do.

What, exactly, is the problem? Seriously, is this not what God invented such counter-terrorism agencies for? Is this not part of each agent's job description? So the agency didn't rush to apprise the Congressional committees that they were planning to carry out their mission? WTF?!

What, exactly, is Leon Panetta's job description, besides being Obama's lackey? Was he chosen by The One to actually direct the agency, or merely to stifle its counter-terrorism effort, because, you know, counter-terrorism is so not politically correct in our post-sanity era? This horseshit has to stop. Seriously.
