MARGARET CARLSON: Forget Petraeus: The Problem Is The FBI. “What’s criminal here is that the agency kept investigating even after realizing what it had on its hands was a reckless affair — and aren’t they all? — not a threat to national security. We’re not Saudi Arabia. We don’t stone adulterers. The punishment suffered privately is more than enough.” Well, an affair exposes you to blackmail from inside and outside the government. But then, that’s because they’re punished.

UPDATE: Obama defends FBI on Petraeus.
