The Google Purge, Pt. 2


It is now public information that the FBI turned over to the Department of Defense "20,000 to 30,000 pages of emails" exchanged between Marine Gen. John R. Allen, the four-star U.S. commander of the war in Afghanistan, and Jill Kelley, who complained to the FBI about threats from Paula Broadwell, the other woman to General Patraeus. Gen. Allen is married, but not to Kelley.

Well, I am sure happy we have been putting our full resources behind our fighting men in Afghanistan, just as candidate Obama promised: "I will focus on training Afghan security forces and supporting an Afghan judiciary, with more resources and incentives for American officers who perform these missions." Certainly, to win we must lead by example. Well, this gives new meaning to candidate Obama's own words, "Moreover, lasting security will only come if we heed Marshall’s lesson, and help Afghans grow their economy from the bottom up."

It seems we have a new self evident truth as we see the Google Purge running its course. We have a growing information economy. As we approach the question of sequester, our policy makers must ask, "Should it be restrained?"

So much for Benghazi, it's now the real housewives of DC.

A shirtless probe from the bottom up:
The FBI agent who started the case was a friend of Jill Kelley, the Tampa woman who received harassing, anonymous emails that led to the probe, according to officials…

However, supervisors soon became concerned that the initial agent might have grown obsessed with the matter, and prohibited him from any role in the investigation, according to the officials.

The FBI officials found that he had sent shirtless pictures of himself to Ms. Kelley, according to the people familiar with the probe.
