More on the Timing of Petraeusís Resignation
Powerline ^

Posted on 11/10/2012 11:17:04 AM PST by Perdogg

Ronald Kessler of Newsmax has more details on the Petraeus affair. They are rather sordid, and raise more questions about the timing of his resignation:

[A]n FBI source says the investigation began when American intelligence mistook an email Petraeus had sent to his girlfriend as a reference to corruption. Petraeus was commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan from July 4, 2010 until July 18, 2011.

The investigation began last spring, but the FBI then pored over his emails when he was stationed in Afghanistan. …

Given his top secret clearance and the fact that Petraeus is married, the FBI continued to investigate and intercept Petraeus’ email exchanges with the woman. The emails include sexually explicit references to such items as sex under a desk.

But then he had Jamie Gorelich to create the “WALL” so OBL could operate freely inside the U.S.!!!

My understanding is that the House can still compel him to appear

Vince Foster was compelled to be at work that afternoon but he wasn't.

It certainly appears that Gen. Petraeus was going through a mid-life crisis, while having great sex.

Petreaus should skip his picnic at Fort Marcy Park, and the canoe trip on the Potomac.

The blackmail could be coming from The White House. Petraeus had an affair while still an Active Duty Soldier. Adultery is still a punishable offense in the military. You don’t see much of it because you usually need both parties to confess. Petraeus has been around long enough to know, and have seen, that Generals can be recalled from retirement to be questioned and punished. Normally, the Department of the Army Inspector General (DAIG) would investigate adultery by an Army General, but Petraeus has confessed. They must have a lot of evidence or Petraeus would have fought it. That means they can hold military trial and punishment over his head. The blackmailing was already going on, and the blackmailer was Obama.

I want to know when we first heard about the recent suicide of one of Obamas secret service agents. I believe he died on November 1st. Was this also withheld until after the election or did I miss it? Another extramarital affair, is there going to be an investigation?

Sounds like the lady is another Lewinsky....giving hummers under the desk. Had to give a heckuva rush to a previously straight arrow guy at 60 years of age.

Was it Jerry Reed who sang, He’s middle-age crazy, tryin’ to prove he still CAN?

And if they are concerned about Petraeus having an affair, how about Hillary and Huma ?
