I watched "The Good Shepherd" last night. Matt Damon was suitably wooden, Angelina Jolie was predictably delectible, and as producer/director and portrayer of a thinly veiled Bill Donovan, Robert deNiro was genius. The CIA, as James Angleton pointed out, is a "Wilderness of Mirrors."
That's why this is becoming of concern:

This is starting to take on a life in the blogosphere. But, note particularly the second comment in that piece. The commentor offers chapter and verse on the pedigree of Ms Panetta that seems to indicate conclusively that she is NOT Leon Panetta's daughter.
I'd say that is pretty easy to prove or disprove in the real world which should dispell this before it gets out of hand. If she is the CIA Director-nominee's offspring, then this is an issue. If this campaign is a misguided load of disinformation, then it should be quelled quickly.
