I thought Petraeus probably planned to tell the truth also, but then came the news that he would not be testifying next week before any committees. That seemed strange, though he can be subpoened at a later date.
And as late as Petraeus came to his CIA job, any information damaging to Obama could long since have been buried in the depths of any government bureaucracy that might have had such information. If information is around, it’d probably be some of the old hands in some bureaucracy that would know about it.
remember, when his resignation was made public, a statement said that there will be “no criminal charges brought “..i.e. perjury...this guy had to perjure himself at his confirmation hearing. Dont they also give a lie detector test for the C.I.A. conformation? Perhaps he failed that and he was confirmed anyway. As it stands now, they just want him to ride off into the sunset..the testimony from his replacement this week will tell alot..if the new guy sticks to this “video” story, that tells me Obama etc viewed Petraues as a threat.
This all so much like that old political novel by Alan Drury, Advise and Consent. The intrigue, the sex, the mystery, the players, they’re all there! There has to be a murder or suicide somewhere to complete the story, and maybe a gay bar or two, and some sort of Communist connection . . . oh, well, we already know where that is.
