|I just invented a conspiracy hypothesis.|
Obama wants secret police and domestic spying (all totalitarian dictators want secret police and domestic spying*), but CIA Director Leon Panetta doesn't want to infringe on people's privacy/liberties to that totalitarian extent. FBI Director Robert Mueller is okay with infringing on people's privacy/liberties to that extent, and so is General David Petraeus.
That explains, in a nutshell, why Panetta has got to go when he should be staying, why Mueller has got to stay when (by established law**) he should be going, and why Petraeus has to be pulled from the field and into the office.
"I cannot say that our country could have no secret police without becoming totalitarian, but I can say with great conviction that it cannot become totalitarian without a centralized national police."--Robert Jackson, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, The Supreme Court in the American System of Government, 1955
