      to my Machiavellian Scenario list, posted here!

      Scenario 3:  
      Playing elebenty-dimensional chess, the 8/12 memos are produced at Obama's instruction and released to the press; as planned, a huge public outcry ensues.  Obama instructs that an 'explanation' be released on 8/13, leading some to question whether Clapper planted the 8/12 memos.  This suspicion leads Obama to regretfully concludes that Clapper's continued presence would be a distraction and requests his resignation.
