Beauty Didn't Kill the Beast (Lied//)
The John Batchelor Show ^ | November 10,2012 | John Batchelor

Am told that Petraeus did not testify to the committees while under oath.

Am told that Petraeus did not want to return to the Hill under oath next week and confront the inconsistences in his remarks about the CIA's part in the fiasco. The impolite word is "lie." The White House developed the "hateful video" explanation on September 11/12. It was nakedly fallacious.

Petraeus did not correct the record in public. The election stalled a full Congressional inquiry. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will not take to the idea of a commission, however Senatior Diane Feinstein has the whip hand with her intelligence committee in the Senate.

a nightmare on the face of it that the American people can understand as heroism and betrayal, but also goes to the Obama administration's secret policy in the Arab Spring of aiding strongmen and warlords regardless of their Jihadist connections.

The Petraeus resignation makes the scandal that much easier to sell in headlines. Beauty (the widespread rumor is that the correspondent is Patricia Broadwell, biographer and former Army major, West Point graduate) didn't kill the beast. Benghazi killed the beast. Will Petraeus talk? Yes, if he is called.

Did Petraeus resign to outmaneuver the White House that was making threats against him and Broadwell about security? Did the White House get surprised by the resignation?

Ask yourself, would the White House engineer a Petraeus resignation about an affair of the heart with a glamorous married mother of two on the same day that the president was making headlines about the fiscal cliff and the second term?

Pop the popcorn.

WND (of all places) links to a video where the mistress gives up classified info. There were two militia prisoners at the CIA compound in Benghazi.

It’s a crime to lie to Congress whether or not you are under oath.

But Congress can lie to us.

I'd like to see an amendment to the Constitution requiring that all laws which Congress passes have to be applied with equal force to Congress otherwise they are null and void.

The next amendment on my wish list would be that the capitol of the United States be moved to a new state every 4 years. The 'winning' city in a particular state would be determined by a lottery.

Administering the oath is merely a formality. False testimony before any branch of the federal government is a crime (See Title 18 section 1001). It’s what got Martha Stewart imprisoned.
