As the national news cycle continues to be dominated by the extra-marital affair that lead to David Petraeus' resignation, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited a wide-ranging collection of political insiders and intelligence experts to add clarity and insight into the scandal.
Joining Piers Morgan for a live, face to face interview, John Miller detailed the chain of events involving the CIA, FBI, two women, and a series of alleged shirtless photos:
"He was never on the case. He doesn't work on the cyber squad. It's not his violation to investigate," says the CBS News Senior Correspondent of the agent whom received the initial complaint from Jill Kelley. "The reason he brought her to those agents was - that's the squad that does this work. It's beyond his expertise. He's in an intelligence group that does other things. So his job was really to make the introduction. But it also appears that he is either seeking or trying to have some kind of odd relationship with this person that he's trying to help, Miss Kelley."
Saying on multiple occasions that "you couldn't have made this case up," Miller refreshes the timeline and points out a few key elements:
"Another thing we have to focus on here, David Petraeus was never the target of the investigation – Paula Broadwell was – for alleged stalking and then maybe compromising the director of the CIA's e-mail which they found out later that actually is not what happened," he tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "So as this rises to the level of the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, this is now reported up to FBI headquarters which says the prudent thing, which is well, first thing we need to do is let's keep a tight hold on this until we figure out what we have."
As Monday's show continued, Morgan also invited journalist Michael Hastings to share his unique opinion on Petraeus' tenure as a whole: FULL POST
On Monday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed legendary filmmaker and documentarian Oliver Stone to the program to discuss his new project, the 10-part documentary series on Showtime, "Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States."
The always candid and at time controversial director did not mince words when it came to his thoughts on Gen. David Petraeus and the recent scandal concerning the former CIA director that's rocked Washington. "The American media has come up with this narrative that he's the American hero who [was] betrayed by the woman," said Stone. "But it's not true. I see no evidence of his heroism."
"There has been no success in Iraq," continued Stone. "The so-called surge has been over hyped by the media as a success, when, in fact, Iraq was trashed almost from the beginning to the end, and it was in worse shape when he left. He didn't leave it well."
Stone also had issue with Petraeus' military campaigns in Afghanistan. "He conned Obama into adding 30,000 troops it was into Afghanistan, with a plan that he would win with this counter-insurgency program," Stone said. "Where is it? Where are the results? They're nonexistent. Afghanistan is worse off."
The re-election of President Barack Obama was also on topic during Monday evening's interview where Stone gave the president his approval, although cautiously: FULL POST
