I’d like to know if his statements back in September blaming the video were coerced by the 0bama regime.
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters On Petraeus: “Timing Is Just Too Perfect”
LT. COL. RALPH PETERS: The timing is just too perfect for the Obama administration. Just as the administration claimed it was purely coincidence that our Benghazi consulate was attacked on the anniversary of September 11th. Now its purely coincidence that this affair — extra-marital affair — surfaces right after the election, not before, but right after, but before the intelligence chiefs go to Capitol Hill to get grilled. As an old intelligence analyst, Neil, the way I read this — I could be totally wrong, this is my interpretation — is that the administration was unhappy with Petraeus not playing ball 100% on their party-line story. I think it’s getting cold feet about testifying under oath on their party-line story. And I suspect that these tough Chicago guys knew about this affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card.
I don’t like conspiracy theories, I may be totally wrong, but the timing of this, again, right after the election and right before Petraeus is supposed to get grilled on Capitol Hill, it’s really smells.
I liked Mr. Gowdy’s visit on Greta the other night. So far he was the only one who’s explicitly stated that Petraeus will testify, voluntarily or not. Many other Republicans who have spoken on the matter use phrases like “He really needs to,” or “We would like him to,” leading me to think they’re eventually going to fold as usual.
Here’s what really bothers me, though, and I’m hoping somebody can reassure me. I don’t think I can think of a flimsier excuse for Petraeus to resign (as Peter King said on Fox this morning, looking back through our history as a nation were Eisenhower, FDR or MacArthur forced to resign for extramarital affairs?), yet that’s exactly what this administration expects us to believe.
As thoroughly corrupt and unfailingly evil as Hillary and He Who Shall Not Be Named and their ilk are, they’re not stupid. It makes me think they know some technicality we don’t that will preclude Petraeus from testifying, and it’s precisely how these disgusting lawyer types weasel out of consequences every time.
