This and the Iranians attacking our drone. What else was withheld from us until after it was too late?

Obama at his normal performance reminds me of Nixon at his worst. Nixon used the IRS not for collecting taxes but for political gain and for revenge against his enemies. Apparently, Obama has moved up to using the FBI, not for investigating crimes but for publicizing personal scandals. While I am disappointed in Petraeus, that is a personal disappointment over conduct that did not as far as we know affect his professional performance. As for Obama, he is an even more disgusting abuser of his power than I had guessed. I pray that America will survive another four years of pure evil in our White House. Our only blessing is that while Obama can be malignant, he is mostly just a petty thug.

Impossible that certain Republicans didn’t know about this. Shame on them for not talking.

bump to a very good post. Patraeus had to know all of that about his appointment too. He gave away his honor when he continued to serve under 0bama and accepted those terms of subservience to his own compromised position.

It is now being reported that the FBI found no violations of the law. That would seem to say that Broadwell did not 'hack' Patraeus' e-mail account as rumored. It would also suggest that there was nothing classified or otherwise compromising of national security ever sent on that e-mail account.

That begs some other questions. Are the above assumptions true? Why did the FBI continue to monitor his e-mail for six months if nothing improper was initially found? What triggered that investigation? When was the POTUS first informed of that investigation?

I think he was fired because the CIA’s statement said that no orders to stand down came from there.....thus, pointing a finger at the WH.

Seems to me that Obama only put Petraeus in the CIA slot because he thought he had something on him damaging and could control him that way. The Chicago Way. I never understood Obama appointing him the CIA in the first place...now it makes sense. Petraeus knows where the bones are buried in more ways than just Benghazi. Hope he has excellent security.

Fox news reported that the FBI did not vett the General before his appointment. For some reason, the CIA vetted him.

“Imagine if there were a real news organization that actually reported the news with ethical journalists instead of journoactivists!”

__________________________________________________________

I never thought I’d see the day—but there is a right-wing, conservative news organization here in Canada—Sun News. Brian Lilley, Ezra Levant and many others. Like Mark Steyn, Ezra was the target of a human rights commission investigation.

It is amazing to me that Canada’s prime minister, Stephen Harper, is more conservative than our current American president. How the tables have turned...

Very good.

BTW... Just in case you have missed it, Petraeus has a nickname.... it’s “Peaches”. LOL

That came from Broadwell in an interview and I think it’s in her book.

What a sucky birthday for poor Paula. She turned 40 on November 9th, the day the SHTF. Plus, Petraeus turned 60 (ewww) on Wednesday.

So Paula went from being class valedictorian, a basketball star, and homecoming queen in high school....to West Point where she also excelled....to earning several advanced degrees...to marrying a freaking doctor and having 2 little boys....AKA a perfect life. And she threw it all away to have sex with a toady-looking guy old enough to be her father. Mind is boggled.

She reminds me of that bat-sh!t crazy astronaut a few years back....accomplished, successful, and attractive, yet reckless and unstable.

“Well DUH. All that effort to keep it hidden for nothing though. Obama voters do not CARE if he screwed an under age midget on the white house lawn while setting puppies on fire.”

Yup, Zero could literally eat babies on the steps of the Supreme Court and they would ask him if he wants to see a wine list!!

So... why wasn’t Petraus’ security clearance revoked immediately upon learning this information by the “Chumpmander In Chief?” Oh, I see, it wasn’t revoked for political reasons. There is nothing that possibly could have been compromised for those few days.

Because the Chicago thugs held this info and used it as leverage
so Betrayus would toe the party line about the video lies. After the election
the Chicago exposed this, knowing the story would then turn to sex,
instead of the abandonment, death and coverup in Bengazi.
Sure, the MSM is covering the sex angle to the story and that’s all.

The article suggests a very nebulous timeline.

“To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.”

Months. Who knew what and when? The letter published months ago in the New York Times suggesting an affair between a very high ranking official may have been from someone besides the husband, just trying to send a message. Was Obama holding this as a playing card, waiting to use it only when needed. He needed it before potential testimony regarding Libya, but couldn’t use it until after the election.

The stench coming from this Whitehouse is overwhelming.

It would have been a lot funnier if they hadn't inverted Petraus' picture... that chest of medals is on the wrong side of his chest and his name is sorta backwards!

an opinion here in the form of two questions. Is what is being told and what was taking place not simply a matter of practice but instead those in line doing as requested receive a pass, those who could get out of line with an attitude of I’ve had enough am going to tell the truth, the ones taking the heat meanwhile the real problem is those not taking the heat and given a pass? Typical liberal verses Conservative battle for control and, as all know, liberals always get a pass?

Some things are coming out. May be too little too late.
Impeachment implementation and removal of obama by the

if our House goes there again. Scary times. Twice tried in our history.
Twice denied.

It's hard for me to argue with that. So I won't. Regardless of all the "great general" talk the military experts and others on TV preface all of their remarks with Petraeus is definitely a pussy.

There’s still time for the Electoral College to change their votes.
That’s why Hillary, Petraeus, and everyone else involved are stalling to delay their appearances before Issa’s committee.
Dec. 17 is the deadline.
