Central Intelligence Agency operatives on the ground during the Sept. 11, 2011, fatal attack on America's embassy in Benghazi have since been subjected to so many lie detector tests that several sources say they're being bullied and threatened into silence.
A former head of U.S. counterintelligence is questioning President Obama's claim there has been, so far, no evidence of any release of damaging classified information from the sex scandal that prompted David H. Petraeus to resign as CIA director last week.
The U.S. military and the CIA failed to agree on implementing a key recommendation of the commission that investigated the 9/11 terrorist attacks: Give special-operations commandos the lead for all covert military action.
Last week, al Qaeda issued its annual Christ- mas threat to the United States, promising suicide bombings during the holidays. Here's a better idea for a Christmas present from al Qaeda: a video showing Osama bin Laden - or his grave.

"If somebody is being polygraphed every month, or every two months, it's called an issue polygraph, and that means that the polygraph division suspects something, or they're looking for something, or they're on a fishing expedition," Mr. Baer said, in the report.
