Another one

The post below discusses the scandal of government eavesdropping on AP, which had gotten wind of a terror plot that may have been a sting operation. Now we learn that the Justice Department also snooped on -- God help us -- a Fox News reporter named James Rosen. In this instance, the Justice Department was investigating leaks related to a report on North Korea in 2009.

They got hold of Rosen's telephone records, they scooped up his emails, and they scrutinized his interactions with a State Department official accused of leaking the report.

Let's zoom out for a wider picture. The information on North Korea came from a CIA source. Some reports coming out of the Benghazi pseudo-scandal have led me to believe that sources within the intelligence community feed scoops to Fox and its friends. In fact, even before Benghazi, I suspected that the right had established its own spy network within spy-dom.
Comments:
This is much bigger than Benghazi or IRS diddling, imo.

And it's completely fucking LEGAL!.

So does spying on the CIA rise to the level of treason?
 
Right now I'm arguing with Obots @ lawyers gunz & munny.

They claim the FBI agent MUST go after Rosen cuz that investigation thing makes them use a broad brush, but they're not treating him like a criminal.

They are terrified they might shame Obama.

I don't see how you're getting this from the Kim-Rosen story. Rosen's source was a State Department nuclear proliferation expert, Stephen J. Kim, who, according to the New York Times met with Rosen because he wasked to do so by an as-yet-unnamed State Department press officer (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/18/us/politics/18leak.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0).

This smells like a setup to me, and not from the CIA.
 
And, speaking of dangerous terrorists:

has any one explained why was the ambass. in a CIA post in the first place? he wasn't in an scheduled assignment. He went without his security details. I know all dipolmats are basically spies but what he was doing there at that time may shed some light on the admin or at least the state dep. behavior.
 
Just in passing. More on the Sibel Edmonds claim that the US was actively backing al Qaeda between 1997-2001.
