Is this a trick question?

Duh.

Certainly they used this personal scandal to sack and discredit Petraeus immediately after he election because they knew they had edited his talking points.

A friend with some knowledge of security matters says he is 100% certain they knew of the Petraeus affair before he became CIA Director.

Hopefully there will be more attention to this. Obama is obviously covering for his Jihadi friends. That is why there has been no investigation, NO suspects, NO arrests, NO names mentioned of who is responsible. How long did it take Bush after 9/11 to tell us that al Qaeda was reponsible? About 2 weeks.

If you lie down with dogs...

I lost all respect for Petraeus when he joined the Obama team. IMO he got his just desserts, BUT we need to know the truth.

He was blackmailed and then double crossed.

Since he was double crossed and they let the cat out of the bag about his affair any way and ruined his career and his life you can bet two things.

First, he is pissed as hell and second, they have lost their leverage on him and he has very little to lose at this point.

Personal life aside, he still continues to be a very popular and sympathetic figure who is respected (at least professionally ) by a lot of Americans.

Given the forgiveness of the serially weird extramarital behavior of Mark Sanford ( me included) , the Democrats have much to worry about from the good General and I don’t think he can be bought off at this point because if he does not come forward, subpoenas are going to go looking for him.

Issa’s and his lawyers are no doubt having some very interesting and informative discussions and negotiations right about now..

I’ve twice read that term, “nuclear,” in terms of what Petraeus’ testimony might mean.

I would advise not to hold too high of expectations. Petraeus may express some annoyance at the falsehood of the talking points, but I have doubts he’s going to say anything that’s going to bring down his former boss. Regardless of the way in which he left his post as CIA director, Petraeus is going to feel a sense of loyalty to Obama.

Retired generals nowadays aren’t iconoclasts like those of old. We’re not talking about Douglas MacArthur here.

The “missing talking points” remind me of the “missing 18 minutes” in Nixon’s Watergate tapes.

I’m surprised Rush or Hannity or Levin haven’t picked up on this “parallel” - the left would go apoplectic if we tied the Messiah to their definition of corruption - Nixon.

I suggest that the General ensure that he is carrying a personal sidearm at all times. Fascist dictators have a tendency of making problems go away, along with the witnesses that could testify.
