(IBD) Was David Petraeus Blackmailed By Obama Administration To Hide Benghazi Truth?
True Conservatives on Twitter ^ | November 13, 2012

Posted on 11/13/2012 2:20:46 PM PST by raptor22

Petraeus Scandal: An affair that was known to the FBI for months and kept from congressional oversight committees might explain his complicity in a false narrative of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the order to "stand down."

The addition of sex to Benghazigate adds a dimension sure to keep the scandal going and one that does indeed make Watergate seem like a third-rate burglary. The affair admitted to by Gen. David Petraeus, now our former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, might have attached blackmail or the potential for blackmail to a scandal we have already called a case of criminal negligence.

But blackmail by whom?

Petraeus isn't the first general to have an affair while in uniform. But as CIA director, Petraeus' knowledge of the nation's secrets was unparalleled, as was his knowledge of what happened and when regarding the assault on our consulate in Libya.

The timing of his resignation is most curious — just days after the presidential election and days before he was scheduled to testify before Congress, under oath, regarding the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. CIA Deputy Director Michael Morrell is expected to testify in his place. But lawmakers want to hear from Petraeus, and so do we.

As we've noted, just two days after the attack on our Benghazi consulate, representatives of the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) gave Capitol Hill briefings in which they said the evidence supported an al-Qaida or al-Qaida-affiliated attack.

The FBI and NCTC also briefed that there were several al-Qaida training camps just outside Benghazi. The area was described as a hotbed for the militant Ansar al-Sharia as well as al-Qaida in North Africa.

I don’t use a ping list and you can be sure that I’ll be watching for him when I cut paste the addresses of what I am responding too.

He was telling people that I was pinging him in multiple threads on this board, and that NEVER happened. I have no idea what his problem is.

I politely responded to what he wrote the first time, but he decided to call me a liar.

Yes, Faisal’s expression clearly shows what he thinks of the black convert to islam who took the name Malik Shabazz.

That too gets Arabs to despise Western black Muslim converts with their made-up Islamic names more than the real born black Muslims, say, Sudanese, Nigerians, etc. who are educated to pray and understand Quran and Hadith in Arabic.

Arabs are racist; a fact that the libs, including Blacks, avoid acknowledging at all costs.

You did not automatically ping me to either of those posts by replying to a post that had pinged me.

I never said I did.

the only handle in the ‘to’ line is the one whose post you reply to unless you type in or cut and paste other names into it.

And that's exactly what I did. I cut and pasted the names from the two posts that I was replying to, and like I originally said, I didn't realize that you were not involved in this thread because I thought you had already been a part of it. And from now on, I will be sure that you are not addressed in any post that I make. I was only trying to be courteous by including, but I guess I already told you that and you called me liar.

So, how about you stop calling me a liar and don't reply to me again? and don't be posting BS about me, behind my back, GOT IT? thanks.

I tried to explain some of that via freepmail, I received the reply I expected; he called me a moron and told me to eff myself.
It’s just going to be one of those screen-names I’ll never forget.
And now that our other ‘friend’ who delights in obstructing threads that touch even ever so lightly upon the genealogy of zero has shown up, I’ll bow out. No use feeding the trolls, right?
Gotta laugh though. The history of the research into the background of zero goes back more than two years, and guess HOW Dr RJP got the material?

There’s no such thing as bad publicity though...each denial and accusation happily draws more attention to what’s really going on.

I posted proof that he had pinged me to a long post before on another thread.

No, you didn't, because I never pinged you to another thread. I had only made one short post in the previous two days on other threads when you made that statement (and it wasn't to you) -- so you obviously have me confused with someone else. Anyone can look through my posting history and see that. I can't delete my own posts.

...he posted some more foul comments about me on another thread without pinging me.

and that's not true either is it?

0bastard’s actual lineage will be, IMHO, more and more interesting to people as time goes on. This stolen election and now more and more poop hitting the fan from every direction is certainly helping to focus peoples’ attention on “Who the HELL is this guy, anyway?????”

People were hoping he’d be elected out, and the Giant Cleanup would begin. But no, it was not to be. More coup/usurping/revolution, X 1000. So more and more people are going to wnat the unpleasant “rest of the story”. ‘Cause he didn’t go away.

Careful, the unreasonable ones have motives that might just be a little deeper than what we give them credit for, or be slightly unhinged. Better direct the energy it takes to deal with them, into something useful...

Like I was just thinking, you know you are over the target, when you are told that because the KHARWAM family is linked to the MAJDALANY family tree, which includes TOOT/TOUT/TOUTONGHI the baby-sitter and Sarruf, Vice President of The American University of Beirut, THAT YOU ARE GUILTY of linking MX to his daughter, with whom he is shown in a photograph at Oxford in December 1964.

Oh, really? Let's ask the admin then. You didn't post to little jeremiah and someone else "Wondering why that tigerAH is interested in this?"

You did post another long post with my name in it. It was on this thread so I was wrong about it being on another.

No mention of me huh? Why was it deleted then? It's amazing how much abuse you want to dish out. You're making multiple posts to me now and telling me not to post to you anymore. You're lying about making that post. You were the first to use foul language when you called me an "azz..." in post #70, now deleted, in reply to this simple post...

post #67

No, you pinged me to post #63. You pinged me earlier today on another thread too.

You went ballistic about that and started the name calling. Now you don't seem to want to let this go and keep making up more BS.

With the horrid history of arab slave-trading (which hasn’t been totally wiped out) why any coloured person in the US who has access to information and the ability to read, would consider islam as a cult worth belonging to, absolutely stuns me. It’s more like Stockholm Syndrome. They are returning to the master’s creed which enslaved and butchered the african natives in the millions.
Not very smart was it, for Malcolm Little (Shabazz) to attempt to achieve reparations through the United Nations.
An action against the perpetrators who rounded them up, sold them, and stowed them into the ships might have been more to the point. The arabs, after all, aren’t short of money.

Phil: What is the president doing using CIA to arm factions in a covert operation to shape the region-- --not for "freedom" but for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Fred: Lest we forget - that's what it's all about...might as well ask, was the US using NATO to destroy Libya...for the same reason?

My take on this "Arab Spring" has been it's the systematic replacement of secular regimes by Islamist ones instigated by the Hussein-Hillary-Huma troika on behalf of Saudi sponsors.

It's not about "freedom"; it's not about "democracy"--

--and "Islam" does not mean "peace"--more accurately, submission.

Hence the continued abuse of the intelligence and military apparatus by a president of suspicious origin is treasonous.

U.S. foreign policy is hijacked in the interest of unnamed foreign interests.

Clinton allowed Iran to arm Bosnians; Hussein channels Saudi aid into the undeclared war.

Saudis put him through Harvard, and he puts on his dog collar and bow-wows.

He is using foreign assets to avoid the requirement of a presidential finding presented to congress.

Washington warned against foreign entanglements--he never imagined foreign presidents.

Knowing that the communist MSM is shielding a communist US dictator, why don't they say that 0b0z0 is expending American blood and treasure on behalf of Saudi Arabia?

After all, the MSM "forgot" about 9/11/01 and accused President Bush of fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq on behalf of Israel!

What they are sweeping under the rug is that when 0b0z0 takes down Egypt, hands it to the Muslim Brotherhood and causes it to disintegrate by facing a famine that leads to the inevitable civil war, 0b0z0 in fact is taking down the whole Middle East.

Unlike Qatar, Saudi Arabia DID NOT WANT the Sunni MB and are refusing to loan them money. Taking the Middle East down will only help Ahmadi-Nejad, al Qaeda and ALL other Islamic terrorists, let alone, very tough decades for America and its allies.

Syria IS next in line.........

PS. At the risk of being smacked down by anyone of the addressees, it's a conversation courtesy. :-)

Right. By encouraging the ambition of the MB to follow the straight path of the koran, and live by sharia, they are all being led straight back to the seventh century where they belong.

Saudi Arabia DID NOT WANT the Sunni MB and are refusing to loan them money...

The thousands of perfumed princes of the Saud family are trying to rid themselves of their wahabbe straight-jacket. Pssst...Isn't it classical arab to facilitate the enemy to destroy itself?

The level of this kind of strategic thinking is tens of thousands of feet above the Ministry of Propaganda.

Rush takes apart Jake Tapper, the fairy sheiking "Unfair!" when accused of supporting the regime's positive note, e.g., Al Qaeda on the run.

No, Mr. and Mrs. America and all the ships at sea, Al Qaeda and its extemist strain be they sunni or shi'ia are vibrant, robust, alive and kicking thanks to America's muscle and Saudi cash.

Iran is not threatened; Israel is threatened.

There are wheels within wheels--but thanks to Petraeus, Wonder Woman, and the Kardashian Twins, "it's just about sex."

Nothing is accident, coincidence, chance--all is by design.

And the Saudis ain't going to shoot themselves in the foot, and the phony who bowed to them is their organ-grinder monkey.

The Saudis own the U.S. president; they accused the Bushes of being overly solicitous, but they went to Ivy League schools on their own dime.

And Hillary with her Huma body person Muslim Brotherhood minder--

Grassley is trying to get a timeline out of Mueller.

How about a timeline out of the only person who grants Cross Border Authority.

Flexible with the keeper of the holy sites, flexible with the Stalinophile in Moscow, inflexible with American citizens.

It's treason; he's an Islamo-Commie. We knew that five years ago.

Lord God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, I pray that you would expose the truth behind all of this. You know everything hidden. You alone know that the heart of man is deceitfully wicked. Please, for righteousness sake, expose what is done in the darkness by the wicked behind every plot and bring them into the light of day that true justice might be served. I pray all this in the name of our precious LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 29:2:

"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn."

I’ve been trying to find out if they were born in Lebanon or the US. It seems their parents came to the US before they were born, but that doesn’t mean the mother had them here. And it doesn’t make them loyal Americans either way. The damage they have inflicted on this country and the methods make me think they are assets of some other country regardless of their citizenship. There is high treason going on, and I believe they may well hold the key, were I Jill I’d not take a long walk on a short pier.

Jill Kelley would have been operating on the ancient custom of 'I'll get you into the deal if I get ten percent of the proceeds' - the entire middle east operates on that ancient practise, don't lift a finger, just skim a share off the top. So you can work out what the estimated worth of the coal venture would be. Ten times $80 million. If she loses her 'honorary consulship of South Korea' there goes that little perk. Makes one wonder, just what benefit could she have been to South Korea? Sell coal to the middle east...LOL?

Honorary Consul - TO WHAT? ( I once worked for an Honorary Consul to Senegal, he used the licence plates purely to escape paying parking fines, and parked anywhere he liked, even on access to pedestrian crossings, because he knew he wouldn't be fined.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jill_Kelley

Jill Kelley was born Gilberte Khawam in Beirut, Lebanon[13] on January 1, 1975. Kelley’s family, which includes an identical twin sister, Natalie Khawam,[14] and a brother David Khawam,[15] are Lebanese-American Maronite Catholics who immigrated to the United States from Jounieh, Lebanon in the mid-1970s.[2] Kelley grew up in Voorhees, New Jersey and later Northeast Philadelphia, where her parents owned a restaurant. Kelley lived in the Philadelphia area until her mid-20s.[8]

When Kelley’s twin sister Natalie Khawam appealed a custody ruling in favor of her husband in 2012, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency David Petraeus and United States Marine Corps four-star general John R. Allen wrote letters to the judge in that custody case on official letterhead supporting Khawam.[16] At around that time, both sisters faced separate personal financial problems due to their extensive debts.

That’s the sad limitation of this website, everyone wants to be the smartest and post the latest, and every piece of research information ends up scattered over a hundred or more headlines.
Like Paula’s father said, there’s more to this than meets the eye, though we might never hear about it.


That’s why some smart people need to collect all the info for future reference, or to have all in one place, for others to read. If a person reads it as it’s posted, it’s sort of manageable (but when it’s fast as it is now, it’s very hard) but impossible later one; not sure if the search function is even working yet.
