Rush: 'Petraeus will reiterate that the video caused the Libyan riots'
Rush Limbaugh Show

Posted on 11/14/2012 1:26:35 PM PST by pabianice

Heard him say it. He warned his listeners to not be surprised when Petraeus restates before Congress that the 'the video caused the riots.' I guess we'll see. If Rush is right, we have to wonder what threats Petraeus has received and from whom.

A truly superb Army career and now it's come to this.

Chicago politics can easily ruin a 37 year career with loss of all pay and allowances and one year in Levenworth-—can’t do it? I said he couldn’t take my GM bond and give it to the UAW or give Chyrsler to the Italians but he did it-—Chicago politics.

It's no wonder we all feel that there's no way BO will suffer anything about Benghazi. Why so many want to protect him at the cost of their own skins is beyond me.

It's easy to understand -- those around the One are "true believers." They have a blood lust for an eventual brutal dictatorship (after they collapse our economic system).

The evil left lives for absolute control over others -- it what gives their evil lives meaning. They have marched through our institutions and are accelerating plans for economic destruction.

Who said what in that diaolog you posted?

By “he” I meant Obama. During the 2nd debate Obama baited Romney with the quote and Candy backed him up.

Plus, I read today that they’re thinking about filing charges against Broadwell; so that may be part of it. Her “career” is also threatened.

You folks are pegging him for what he really is. He is what we real combat officers in the early 70’s to mid 70’s, who had commanded troops in combat in RVN saw with our new snot nose 2LT’s and 1LT’s in 73-74 like him, plus their teachers-”our BN and BDE CO’s.” These damn LT’s would sit at the O club asking the BN CO how to map out their damn career before they could lead a damn rifle platoon. The LTC’s gladly played mentor just like Betrayus does. Those LTC’s who were mech INF in RVN and claimed they won the war and every damn battle to include Duc Lap, were the biggest bunch of hot air I ever served with. Yes, this damn 4th ID mech INF BN CO in RVN claimed he saved Duc Lap SF Camp. He was an O-6 in 73. He was pure BS. I got up and told every damn officer in the BDE and BN at the breakfast table-”Col-You are a damn LIAR” as the II Corps Mike Force and the 5th Group Mike Force both landed at Ban Me Thout East and camped outside our Project Omega Compound at Ban Be Thout East. They saved Duc Lap in late aug 68-NOT YOU.These mech Inf officer types do not think right. They think like tanker clankers without the damn armor to protect them. No wonder Petraeus has no darn idea how to set up a mortar section as APC’s are different. He disgusts every real Infantry soldier and marine.

He won’t do anything that will put civilians at risk. He won’t do anything that will make things harder for the troops in the field. He will choose not to fight.

>>He was no doubt told “Resign, or lose your Rank, face Court-Martial, and/or lose your pension”....easy pickin’s.

No. A retired officer of the United States (as are all military officers) can be stripped of rank and pension only if he faces a general court martial, is found guilty under the UCMJ, and is then dismissed from the service. Even Obama isn't crazy enough to court martial Petraeus, for then every bit of dirty laundry would become public. We'll see tomorrow how honorable a man is Petraeus.

"We'll see tomorrow how honorable a man is Petraeus."

You are thinking of the OLD MILITARY JUSTICE SYSTEM, where "National Security" is invoked whenever that "Dirty Laundry" has to be hidden.

His Defense in a Court Martial would NOT implicate ANYONE, other than those that are designated to take the Fall; count on it.

I still maintain that he was FORCED to Resign, and cut a "Plea Bargain" to keep himself whole, in exchange for NOT DISCLOSING The Messiah and his entourage as having repeatedly lied to the Public, and having PROVIDED THE ARMS AND MUNITIONS to those who killed the Americans in Bengazi.
