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.
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?
