On Thursday, the Defense Department said that in order to blend in, special-operation forces often don the insignia of forces they accompany. On Friday, after Turkey complained, a spokesman called the action “unauthorized and inappropriate.”
Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., said he is not satisfied with the FBI withholding information about the investigation into former CIA Director David Petraeus.
“I still have questions about that,” he said on Fox News Sunday, continuing, “I understand why they would keep an FBI investigation confidential from everybody until they saw there was a crime, but this suddenly involves two of our highest-ranking generals, Petraeus and [Gen. John] Allen.”
Because it involved those two officials, Lieberman said he believes that someone in the Obama administration should have known about the investigation.
“I still have an inclination to believe that somebody should have notified the White House of that early in the investigation,” he said.
