(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.

Fred, you may just have a suspicious mind.

I do not find it odd that Mrs. Kelley breakfasts at the White House, brokers coal gasification deals in South Korea, or was all over the Republican Convention in Tampa. Or, that her 501-C-3 misappropriated funds, and that her Bayshore Drive digs are in foreclosure, or that she's a mere $2Mill in the hole, or spends more time in court than the incompetent WH anorexic androgyne spends on the golf course, or trades mildly salacious e-mails with 4-star generals and/or their wives, or has an FBI agent drooling for her.

Furthermore, as the Honorary Consul of South Korea, she tells us that she is "inviolate," so we shouldn't even be talkin' 'bout her!

No caviar and valet parking for you. Can the gossip, Mr ... and stay offa the lawn!

...So Dunham went to school in LEBANON???

It's possible, but without any records of where they were other than 'Dreams' it's another unknown. Stanley Armour Dunhams records have been destroyed. The initials on that uniform might be ndj for Notre Dame de Jamour, but they could also be simply Ng. Notre Dame de Jamour wasn't co-educational until 1975.

You betcha! And the one thing I do not understand is why people like Petraeus and his wife didn't see straight through Kelley - for what she so evidently was. (I say WAS, because she's finished.)

Freepers and lurkers:

For those of you wondering why this Lebanese family tree appears on this thread, let me explain that it is in furtherance of the “Mal-Val” theory which holds that Lebanese Christian Valerie Sarruf is Barack Obama’s mom and Malcolm X is his dad. If this theory is true this family tree appears to show that Obama is a second-cousin, once-removed from the recently notorious Lebanese twins, Jill Kelley and Natalie Khawam. Very amusing, that.

The whole Mal-Val theory is controversial and there is a 1000 comment FR thread dedicated to the topic.

Here is the link and some of the article:

Re:”Mal and Val - not Ann and the Old Man” Any evidence Valerie Sarruf is Obama’s mom? (vanity)

Seizethecarp vanity commentary on Dr. Ron J. Polland youtube dated 08/07/11 ^ | August 1, 2012 | Seizethecarp (vanity)

Posted on Wednesday, August 01, 2012 2:18:33 PM by Seizethecarp

“Meet The Parents....of alias Barack Obama. Black Sunni Muslim father and White Lebanese Christian mother. Born in the ME, raised in Indonesia, became BHO II in 1982.” Dr. Ron J. Polland

The “Mal-Val” youtube video at the link was posted by FReeper Polarik (Dr. Ron Polland) in August of 2011 and while morphing the image of a woman named “Val” into an image of Obama, he insinuates that “Val” is Obama’s mom. One year later this youtube has only 1,150 views.

In July 2012, two FReepers associated the woman, “Val,” in Polarik’s Youtube with Lebanese actress Valerie Sarruf and have posted multiple images of her at various ages on FR eligibility threads. I am opening this thread to invite discussion of and links to any evidence that either supports or refutes a claim that Valerie Sarruf is Barack Obama’s mother, with or without Malcolm X being his father.

Where could Malcolm X and Valerie Sarruf have been in 1960 when baby Barry would have been conceived? Is there any evidence that Sarruf could have been pregnant and delivered a baby in 1961? In what country could the baby have been delivered? How and when could the alleged Mal-Val baby have been inserted into the identity and life narrative of the person we have come to know as Barack Hussein Obama?

Full disclosure: I refute categorically all of the Mal-Val narrative as wildly speculative and unsupported by any evidence that I have seen so far.

What’s your problem? I was ALMOST going to ping you myself to something a while back because it seemed to be a point of interest in some of your comments, but thought better of it. Thanks goodness I had second thoughts, or it might be me that you are accusing OF PINGING YOU and throwing insults at.
If you’re sick of being a freeper, give it up. No one needs PERMISSION to ping someone.
You just ignore the ping and move on.
That’s IF you are reasonable.

Screw you. My problem is that I asked him nicely not to ping me anymore and I get lies, nastiness and insults posted behind my back. He pinged me to two very long posts yesterday with a long string of FReepers in the ‘to’ line. That’s the definition of a ping list. I have been added to many that started just like that. If I can’t ask to not be pinged to that without getting a load of crapola then I’m going to fight back. Stick it, pal!

Yes, Faisal’s expression clearly shows what he thinks of the black convert to islam who took the name Malik Shabazz.
If MX hadn’t made the contacts he did with the Saudi contingent at the 1955 Bandung Conference where he also met Sukarno the Indonesian dictator-host and Charles Malik from Lebanon, he wouldn’t have been sitting there.

Dreams from my Father, indeed.

Whoa! Thanks very much, Brown Deer! You too, Fred Nerks.

I have finally have time, late at night, to read and try to digest the information on this thread. What a pit of snakes, huh?

Before the election, before Sandy, before Petraeus Falls on His Member for The Emperor, there was momentum for full-scale investigation.

Now come the swarms of media fairies in dog collars shrieking the refrain from 1998, "It's Just About Sex."

Actually, the Director of Central Intelligence was compromised with the complicity of the president's pet FBI Director.

Congressional investigation cannot proceed when the president hides behind a fresh firebreak of boiling scandal.

The deeper question of Benghazi underlies the attack and response:

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.

If you think asking politely to not be pinged and then not liking being lied to and insulted behind my back is unreasonable then you’re a head case too. I’m a monthly donor and give about twice what a sane person with my finances would give. Perhaps I should take your advice and leave FR. Your standard of reason usually rides a short bus.

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?

How about both of you knock off the name-calling and profanity and quietly (and possibly via freepmail without the flaming) hash this disagreement about pings, so others can read and post without wading through all of this?

I simply asked him to stop pinging me. He replied that he hadn't. Not true. I posted proof that he had pinged me to a long post before on another thread. He claims that is a lie. He posted nastiness and, as you know because you deleted it, he posted some more foul comments about me on another thread without pinging me.

How do you expect me to reason with that? That's why I asked you to intervene because I didn't want a flame war here. But his buddies had to jump right in and make me the bad guy. I have nothing more to say to him. If you don't want to deal with it then don't deal with it. I won't be a punching bag for making a simple request.

When you reply to any post 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. Everyone knows that. You did not automatically ping me to either of those posts by replying to a post that had pinged me. No one is going to believe that nonsense.

TigersEye had not yet responded on this thread by your post 10, so his inclusion in the list of FReepers in post 10 could not be part of a combined response.

Please, just make sure he is not on anything remotely resembling a ping list that you are using so this thread can get back on track.
