Apparently, on November 1st, a US drone was fired at by Iranian fighter planes.  According to WSJ:

A senior administration official said Republicans and Democrats in Congress were briefed on the incident Nov. 2, and congressional aides for both parties confirmed some staff members were briefed. Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney wasn't briefed, an aide said.

The story comes out after the election on November 6th.  Reports claim it only came out because CNN reported it, which seems very out of character for CNN.

On November 9th, CIA Director David Petraeus announced his resignation, reportedly due to an affair with the woman who wrote his biography.  Also announced is that he will no longer testify next week in a House Intelligence Committee hearing on the 9/11/2012 attack in Benghazi, to which he originally reported was all due to a spontaneous uproar over a youtube video.
