I'm not sure what evidence you have to suggest the timing is anything more than coincidental. From the other thread:
Upon learning of the program June 23 from within the CIA, Director Panetta terminated it and the next day called an emergency meeting with the House and Senate Intelligence committees to inform them of the program and that it was canceled.
Sounds to me is if the Director was able to discover something even his own agency had been hiding (no doubt a consequence of being run by the Bush Administration for 8 years). He's only been director for 5 months now. If you recall it took nearly a month for Obama to have him appointed as head of the CIA, mainly because his lack of so-called 'experience'.
I for one am glad that someone with actual moral, democratic principles is director of the CIA now and is actually doing something about the abuses of the previous administration.
I never assume the Spurs will lose a single game....EVER.
