If I understand the restrictions, he cannot speak as a private citizen about any classified matters unless the CIA approves. So though he will show up, he does have an excuse, or rather a requirement, to avoid answering anything that the CIA won’t let him answer.
My first question was "Do you take after your father or your mother?"
Of course that was back when being a homosexual was a disqualifier for a security clearance.
Had to love the prices at the Mercury cafeteria, however.
I put nothing past them...nothing.
This tactic ONLY works because dems own the MSM...
Lets just hope Broadwell isn’t working for a foreign government. She sounds like a pretty smart cookie.
The General underwent an FBI full field investigation before he ever took over at CIA. The WH Chief of Staff received the report of that investigation. Everything from that day forward is a direct result of Petraeus’ being blackmailed BY THE ADMINISTRATION. This doesn’t look like a mystery; this is the plot unraveled. This explains everything this man has done since that investigation. Anyone who cannot see through this is stone blind.
I missed Hannity. Just watched Greta. I am shocked that the elephant
In the room wasn’t brought up. It seemed like Greta was hinting at it
With Pat Buchannan, but it never came out. Maybe it’s not that big of a deal.
Betrayus testified before congress that the video was the reason for the
Attack in Bengazi, just like the Obama hacks. Did the Obama administration black male Betayrus, threatening to release this scandal
And use Betrayus until after the election, then exposed him, so how would not testify. My understanding he can still be called to testify, but cannot
testify regarding any classified intelligence. How convenient.
Tell me you are joking?
I have Been under a rock since Tuesday.
I did not consider that point. Thank you. They may have him so hog tied that he will just disappear into the abyss.
Did you see that Big Sis might replace Holder? May God help us all!!!
Let’s connect the dots that have been reported or alleged:
Petraeus had a punch card. She shunned him after a long running affair. Leaks about Bengazi have been popping up in the press all from one news source mostly: FOX. Fox has been virtually banned from interactions with the administration i.e. Ed Henry has not been allowed into some briefings. Romney during the debates jumped away from any finger pointing about Bengazi, after it was he who said the administrations story reeked of falsehoods. The FBI must have been investigating whom the leaks were coming from. The info reported by Fox was pin point accurate so the FBI sleuths knew it came from inside and from high up. Petraeus was sending unsolicited info to his paramour and these must have been discovered by the FBI. So, with the little head telling the big head what to do, he ended up screwing himself.
Patreous met with O turd yesterday, told him what he already knew, he had betrayed the turd and would leave and keep his mouth shut if he did not interfer with his retirement. It may not be over depending upon what the house investigation does: Is using this as a chip against the desires of Oturd worth some political agreement on taxes. My sense this is the last we hear of this unless Fox gets the paramour to fill in the blanks. If she fades out of the picture, the game is over.
Snicker, guffaw! Dollars to donuts he was embedded in her as well.
Mouton, what explains Petrayus saying it was a video, when it was a lie.
Did Omama know about this affair for some time and the Chicago thugs
reminded Petrayus to toe the party lies, or worse yet, create them from the CIA or else?
Heard today the CIA people did not like Petraeus,FWIW.
Let's see, we have an administration that insures radio talk show hosts who dissent with them get audited every year. We have an adminstration whose minions use their public offices to investigate private citizens like Joe the Plumber.
Isn't it also *possible,* if not likely, that Petreaus was being investigated and spied on by a lot of people from activists to Senatorial staff since the left began their anti-surge campaign that culminated in the ad they took out in the NY Times years ago and Senator Harry Reid proclaimed the surge a failure and the war a lost cause?
1) She’s a lot prettier than Monica,
2) Petraeus did not seem to be in the loop on activities in Benghazi. Find out who was running the op from the White House.
3) I forget.
I mean, seriously, usually elites get to retire without humiliation, with one scratching the back of the other. General Ham just had to say he was retiring to take care of an ailing relative or wife, and no further questions were asked, because it does happen. I recall Ham visited Las Vegas a day or so before Obama went there. There's no reason Petreaus couldn't offer the same explanation for leaving, as Hillary and Eric were said to be leaving too, and neither are accused of affairs or admitting to any.
So why did he visit the WH and tell Obama he was having an affair when he could have just told the president he was exhausted and wanted to retire to a beach somewhere, and leave it at that, with no one the wiser? Something had to change the status quo of the relationship, and if it wasn't the lover feeling slighted, it was probably a threat of exposure from someone else, such as a President or one of his advisors, or a Senate staffer. Why confess an affair to the public unless he was being blackmailed? Someone must have threatened to expose the affair or he would have continued it, or would have cut it off if his conscience couldn't abide to continue it, none of it requiring public announcements.
I will bet it was run by Valerie Jarrett.
There are two tracks here. Patraeus was told to follow the tape story. Good soldiers follow orders. Meanwhile, he was the one who said, quite clearly, the CIA did not tell anyone to stand down. That is one side.
The FBI had been investigating who was leaking to the press, probably at the direct orders of his excellency and if not by Jarrett. Note, the FBI was conducting a review of the origin of info Broadwell had, so, the question was where did it come from. It did not take those gumshoes long to put two and two together and know it came from Patraeus BUT originally they thought it was her stealing them from him. The only thing I don’t know or cannot piece together was how the FBI knew the info went from Broadwell to Fox. All they knew was it got to Fox and had to come from someone high up. Perhaps they had taps through the secret court in DC or used the NSA to monitor internet traffic. Who knows. But know that the trail went from Broadwell to Patraeus, not visa versa.
You and Laz will have to duel for her.
Mainstream media has shown alot of interest in 1 day into Petraeus sex life. How’s that for investigative journalism? Sure beats 4 dead Americans and an enormous cover-up...oh wait.
It merely means that Petreus will not be testifying as CIA chief next week, as was originally planned. The interim director will do that in his place.
There is nothing, as far as I know, to keep Petreus from testifying as a private citizen with knowledge of the issue. Or Congress could subpoena him.
Living well is the best revenge! That and never giving up. They want us to be crying in a corner somewhere as long as we stay out of their way. We have 2014 to work on and then 2016 - excellent places to channel rage!
Haven’t read all the posts so perhaps this has been answered. Generally its the enlisted guys that get hammered for adultery, but could Patraeus be recalled to active duty and court martialed if the adultery occurred while he was on active duty?
Or the complete neglect of the attack on the base in afghanistan that was carried out by terrorists in US uniform and wiped out several aircraft and US personnel.
Am still thinking threats are coming from somewhere. Blackmail, cover story. Affair, cover story. Blue Dress (different time), cover story. Of course there have never been threats issued by powerful people while a cover up was used to cover up. D.C. powerful people wouldn’t dare utilize layers to cover up a cover up nor threaten anyone. It wouldn’t be civil.
I think so, wasn’t there a recent demonstration of that where some other General got nailed for molestation and or other inappropriate behavior with women?
“I will not return.”
Receiving classified information and publishing it seems to be allowed under the first amendment.
But yes, most would consider it treasonous in spirit if not legally.
You can bet dollars to donuts it was in his vet report. And that it was in a report by other intel groups.
Info dumping to the public is all about timing.
The dump is designed for maximum effectiveness.
This info has been setting and gaining heat.
This is a definite hit on Petraeus and his probable future...which is next to the round file now.
Thats the best explanation I have heard so far!
Man my Hebrew is rusty, but I think that last says something more literally like “it was a bad word, what David did, in the eyes of the LORD.” (LORD is the tetragrammaton, the special covenant name of God to the Hebrews.)
General Patraeus/Benghazi - - -
REPEAL THE ELECTIONS ! ! ! : }
Military terminology takes on new meaning...
He was “All In” alright.
Petraeus went “All In” on her “Broad well.”
It’s more than just 4 men left behind... it’s 4 men that some how is a little “ inconvenience “ to them.
That doesn’t really add up. The ‘story’ states that the affair was over last year and she wasn’t accepting emails from him. I’m sooooooo confused!!
He should’ve told the FBI his book was about 0bama’s OBL raid and that he’s also given Hollywood and Sony pictures some classified information.
Brillant! Of course; Valerie Jarrett—why didn’t I think of that? I was honing in on Hillary being involved in this, we all know this smells like the Clinton games! Bastards!
Let's hope he doesn't get "Vince Fostered" before he sings.
“Isn’t it also *possible,* if not likely, that Petreaus was being investigated and spied on by a lot of people from activists to Senatorial staff since the left began their anti-surge campaign that culminated in the ad they took out in the NY Times years ago and Senator Harry Reid proclaimed the surge a failure and the war a lost cause?”
Why, yessir...I believe so.
Could this possibly be WHY they offered him the CIA job? I’ve always wondered about that.
Don’t know, but I bet we’ll find out.
” the Obama administration was concerned when he was in Afghanistan as a possible rival.”
That makes sense, though it doesn’t absolve him RE: the affair.
I’m very disappointed in him.
“I think we will hear much more on how this might tie in with Benghazi.”
My thought, as well.
