Posted on 11/09/2012 5:52:17 PM PST by classified
On Fridays Special Report on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said the resignation of CIA director David Petraeus was a regrettable situation that might ultimately help shed light on the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya.
We will unravel all the threads of this in time, Krauthammer said. Were just in the first few hours, but I think its worth noting what we do know. This is the end of a career of a truly great American. He did something that hadnt been done by a general since the Inchon landing in the Korean War, when MacArthur by a maneuver managed to save a war that was being lost and save South Korea.
No one had done anything like that until David Petraeus did that in 2007 and 2008 in Iraq, Krauthammer continued. That was a lost war. It was headed for chaos, civil war, bloodshed and unending trouble for us. And he pulled off a surge that rescued the war. What happened after in Iraq and what happened after in Korea are other stories, but that is undeniable. It is one of the great achievements, and he pulled it off. He distinguished himself in Afghanistan. And whatever happens and whatever we learn, this is a real tragedy.

Does anything here remind you of Obama’s campaign techniques of eliminating his opponents with sex scandals?
First the tapes, which resulted in Linda Tripp being savaged by the media.
Then the Blue Dress with the DNA which the media could no longer deny.
Step three was defending infidelity and the MSM seceded there. We got history lessons on everyone from Thomas Jefferson to Dwight Eisenhower. (They stopped there never mentioning Kennedy of Johnson)
Never underestimate the MSM smog machine. They can obscure and confuse any issue no matter how blatant... if they feel like it.
Now that it's happened Patraeus has a pretty good idea who ratted him out and he's bright enough to know he was compromised by a KGB agent.
That's usually pretty much the end of anybody's career. Can't do secret stuff after that, so he had to leave the CIA.
Now, why the dumpster job coming up on Petreaus ~ the field agent who has now been exposed has to strike soon ~ by herself, or through other imbeds she will ask her control officer to send out. If she doesn't there's a chance Petraeus will report her (Up the line to Obama who will advise Axelrod and she'll be terminated)
Ought to be pretty soon.
Anyone who wants to know about the Wheeler murder try a Google.com search for wheeler murder dumpster. lots of stuff there.
One does hope Petraeus confides in somebody outside the inner guard the names of every guy or gal he's had an affair with over the last 30 years. At least we'll have a list of names ~ hopefully in the low hundreds ~ of probable KGB imbed field agents. Kinda' wonder if he nailed that Chapman gal. She has been itching to go abroad again but they're holding her back. This'd be some coin of the realm.
The General has just become the fall man for all His Nothingness failed Lybia policy up to now. Yes sad to sad the Dear Leader voting idiots watching MSM News will believe it. Congress under Speaker Boneheads tenure will sit as usual sucking their thumbs till it all blows over.
That title is a sloppy mess.
How many years was he married without a hint of scandel? I have a suspicion that the woman supposedly involved is like those women who keep coming out of the woodwork every time the dems want to get rid of a potential enemy.
I'm much more inclined to think it was an earlier KGB inbed woman or guy who got to him back in the Army days, and was brought into play to dump him.
Broadwell, though, is already supposedly being investigated by the FBI for trying to use Petraeus' email system ~ which, of course, a KGB inbed probably would try to do.
Could be a particularly smarmy case, and if we can make a connection to Axelrod, this one could be a real laugh riot!
Red line it and move on!
Ya, and if that jerk-water 'pastor' with his 20 parishioners safe and sound in Florida did not do that stupid meaningless publicity seeking stunt, and if the MSM does not blast that nonsense around the world, maybe we have less brave US soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
You want to support that ass hole pastor right to 'free speech'? Talk to the families of those that died because of his publicity stunt.
If he were really a 'man of God', shouldn't he go to Afghanistan and burn the Koran there? It's his right to free speech, after all.
You want to wave a red flag in front of a bull... go for it dude... I'll hold your beer for you. But I ain't coming to help you when you have a hone up your butt.
But the guys in uniform have to came and help you no matter how stupid you are.
The entire damn thing was a publicity stunt that got a lot of soldiers killed. That sucks, and its on that pastors soul, IMHO.
Charles is being optimistic. With the Great Dictator and his suck-ups all over this country, what will happen?
We have Freedom of Speech, deal with it. It’s the ridiculous Rules of Engagement that are getting our soldiers killed, not the stupid pastor.
He’s a good man who’s being used by a bunch of political scumbags in the Administration to cover their ass.
Sometimes Kraut is just too amazing...
he has so much beltway-itis that everything that happens is in a political context...
People don’t give a sh!t about Benghazi. If they did, Obutthead would be out on his a**. Now with a pretty girl, emails about doing it under a desk, a dorky older man...everyone will be caught up in the salacious details and forget about the deaths of 4 heroes, the betrayal of a devoted wife, husband and children...and just chortle over how lucky the bastard is...
There will be NO justice for Benghazi...NONE!
So damn true...
sorry, Brad, but he fits in beautifully with the lib dim memo so I’d say he wasn’t such a serious rival...
They dealt with it.
The 'Pastor' is an idiot pulling a publicity stunt. I blame the media for blowing a back yard stunt into and international incident that cost good men their lives.
Where does the word Responsibility come into play here?
From what I’ve heard, he didn’t admit it until the FBI found the emails...
not too sure he stood up and admitted it because it was the right thing to do.
So, blame the media.....and you know if the Pastor didn’t do anything, the Muzzies would have just made something up.
So would you have criticized Walt Disney for “In Der Fuehrer’s Face” during WWII? Why do Muslim’s get a pass from being offended?
You might be right... I don’t know. But I give him the respect that he stepped down before it showed up in the National Enquirer or became a nightly feature on Hollywood Tonight. ;~))
You really do have a cartoon view of the world and the struggle we are in now.
I suppose you blame the video for Benghazi.
once the liberal media finds the Obama connection, this story will disappear.
What does being Jewish have to do with anything?
Maybe so. These guys can be switch hitters. Wesley Clark said shortly after becoming a Democrat: “I would have been a Republican if Karl Rove had returned my phone calls.”
Krauthammer has such a way of presenting things that you almost think that what he says will actually happen, but sometimes I think he is totally naive.
Anyone else feel this way?
What does being Jewish have to do with anything?
worse..just think who their replacements will be...bet its being manipulated now...is our military being infiltrated ?
Yeh, that could be it. I also think it’s that they can’t admit they’re wrong due the deadly sin of pride. And the ‘1st black president thing’ I’ll never get. MSM would have been decrying the fact that a black man became president before a female which is 50% of the population if he’d been a Republican.
I think most conservatives, by nature, cannot understand the concept of intellectual dishonesty or incuriousness. Follow the facts to the logical conclusion. That is what is so infuriating.
I think the Petreaus “affair” was well known in the “circles” for a LONG time. The White House knew and was saving it in case they needed to use it against their new CIA Director. A form of Control...
This is classic Clintonesque/Obamanesque White House strategy.
Is it a big deal? No, not in this case. But, it does raise some really important red flags. What would the implications have been if the “affair” had been with a hot, red headed Russian Spy? Someone, who like Broadwell, that had infiltrated the inner circles of the Military, in this case one of our top Generals, for six years?
Broadwell is no bimbo. She is an intelligent, well educated, Army professional. She has a very impressive resume.
This affair will be used as a distraction. Petreaus needs to step up to the plate and tell the truth. Will he? Who knows. He didn’t get where he is at by being stupid.
Yes, I am profiling and it is not fair but there is an element of truth in it. Sadly, the correlation with liberalism/socialism/leftism/secularism is quite high. It is estimated that 70% of the U.S. Jewish vote went to BHO. The only consistent conservative Jewish commentator I know is Mark Levin, and he is good as gold.
Maybe it's just stupid Charley ...
To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil. -- Charles Krauthammer
No, but I do blame the rating-seeking MSM idiots and that slimy publicity-seeking 'pastor' for throwing gasoline on the fire.
His action had zero to do with Religion and the media coverage had nothing to do with the news.
