remember, 2 days after the Libya attack, Petraeus and Clinton briefed the Senate comm..he stuck with that ridiculous “video” story,...the Senators came out of the hearing pissed, “claiming they got more info from the NY Times. Also, Petraeus ommited parts of the intel that said it was a terrorist attack from people that were there.Then the CIA started leaking...then the above story and statement came from Petraeus, a clear signal that he was not on “board” anymore. Now, right before he testifies..and AFTER the election, this comes out. I say, the Obama people knew this affair stuff all along, were afraid of Petreaus’s testimonmy...and dropped this on him. If they did do this to him for political purposes, that is “abuse of power”...also,if Obama and Petraeus etc all knew of this affair BEFORE his confirmation hearings, then Petraues perjured himself..and the rest “suborned perjury” ...this could get ugly.
The thing that makes no sense to me is, if Petraeus had decided to tell the truth, then revealing the affair takes away that as a potential blackmail threat. So what did the Obama gang have to gain by making the affair known, or accepting a resignation?
If you blackmail someone with damaging information, you leave them alone, where they are, as long as they do not cause any problems for the blackmailer.
Now it would seem Petraeus is free of any blackmail threat, plus he gave up the CIA post so he can’t threatened with firing.
If he’s not free to testify truthfully, then there has to be some further threat, or he’s an unbelievable Obama/Democrat toadie. That’s not the reputation he’s had so far.
