Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.

Now, trying to fit this in with all that's happened with Petraeus resignation, and news of an affair, and that he won't testify next week, etc., the meaning of that news release is murkier than ever. Does anyone have ideas about how this fits in now?
Petraeus has his own bus or did he throw Obummer under Obummer’s bus?
Well.....allow me to put it this way.
Anyone who thinks his resignation has a THING to do with him schtupping his hot biographer......well, I have some swamp land in Florida I’m trying to unload. Give a call.
Blackmailed to not say what really DID happened, so instead he gave this esoteric statement in order to hint at it without actually saying it.
I remember this statement from Petraeus - I wonder how much this contributed to his outing.
Don’t forget Valarie Jarrett’s “Payback time” comment.
If has Betrayus does not realize he is the fall guy. He soon will.
And let me add ... its not inconceivable that Krystol actually heard from the General’s mouth what was intended by the statement ... the General was a hero of the Neocons and I think he was in contact with them.
The White House knew about his affair all along, from before he was CIA director.
When he refused to go along with their story, they looked for a weapon and used the one they had at hand.
I got a perfect bridge to span that swampland. bridge still a little wet from Sandy...
...we could make a great combined offer.
I remember this too.
I believe with my whole heart, there is a Fast & Furious ala Libya style that was going on. Petraeus has his hands dirty, so does O, so does Panetta, Hillary, Stevens, all of them. And that rat fink Jarrett too.
And we’ll probably never know the full story.
We will never know why Petraeus didn't blow the whistle on this earlier, but the history of Mata Hari comes to mind.
Is it possible Petraeus resigned so he could testify without the administration telling him what to say?
There’s certainly nothing to stop him from being subpoenaed.
BINGO!! He was Blackmailable....that’s why Hussein hired him.
Hes a DEMOCRAT...they LIE and Cheat...its what they do best except for selling out AMERICA!
Or, even better, so that his subordinate could testify honestly as he probably doesn’t have to fear blackmail.
Thanks for all the comments, and I’ll add: I recall nothing in the way of any follow-up comments in the same vein from any CIA spokesmen. The CIA just seemed to go silent and make no further comments as to who did what, or who did not do what.
Why is all the men, well many of them, get caught in these scandals whether it be with women or with other men? You just don’t hear of the political women, left or right, ugly or pretty, getting caught up in this krap. They tried it with Nicki Haley . . . but she is the only one that comes to mind on the national scene and then it just died down. Men are too easy to corrupt. Maybe we will be better off when we have a majority of Congress and the White House with a woman in charge. Just sayin’.
Wasnt it the Democrats that told us that “sex” and “infidelity” was not important and that someone’s personal life does not affect their ability to lead???
