Setting this gal up, via BIO on the Gen., to compromise him, which scared him into lying.
Once he was compromised, they can begin their investigations, and using their findings to Blackmail him. He would then simply be trying to protect his wife, as at that time Benghazi had not happened. There would be no need for him to think anything other than protecting his wife.
Once they had this SET UP, BENGHAZI happened and they knew Petraeus was hooked and no where to turn. Mission Accomplished.
If any of this is reasonable, then BENGHAZI was in the planning for a long time. Just had to get the Chess pieces in the right place, checkmate Petraeus.
We’re on the same page, as they say! Right on. But I did not consider that ‘Benghazi’ was part of a plan to impune Petraeus. Now we get to see an American icon get trashed. My prior post elaborates on this. I hope the SEALs take America back.
You may have touched upon something.
Who monitors the head of the CIA?
Congressional Oversight Committee perhaps or the White House, but the White House security is less rigorous than the CIA.
There is a different gamesmanship ongoing here.
There isn’t a secure chain of command with commensurate OPSEC. Instead it’s an intel maneuver warfare. Observe how Obama bounces all over the playing field. It’s obvious that he is a liar, but he continually isn’t held accountable.
If enemies of the US are concerned about those who might oppose them, and they occupy the Administration from within, how would they defend their position?
They would mold the center of gravity of reporting into conventional mechanisms in a chain of command, then monitor the reporting system. They placed Petraeus in the post after they had tooled up to monitor him. They let any intel which might implicate the traitors flow naturally to the security of the senior intel position, while they monitored the info flow.
By removing Petraeus, they are moving either to substitute another target into the position or they have adequate confidence of control to place their own in the position. They are maneuvering to overcome all systems of checks and balances for absolute power.
