    Wait...you are joking, right?

      This wasn't an emergency.  They could have done this at any time -- Friday afternoon, holiday weekend.  It obviously took some preparation, given our collective understanding before today that it was illegal for him to release it.

      To believe that there was a reason for its timing, or that they somehow didn't know that it would eat up the lion's share of the attention that would otherwise go to the Panetta, Petraeus, and Allen appointments is to believe that the President's staff is completely incompetent.  I don't -- do you?  So they wanted this story to break just before the Cabinet announcement.  Why that is, I don't know -- but if they had wanted either story to burn bright as a solitary flame, then this was rank incompetence.

      I honestly don't believe that it was incompetence.
