I don’t doubt that Petraeus had enemies in Washington, because just about everybody in Washington has enemies. It’s a bit speculative, at this point, as to who might want him damaged.

obviously

of course, I wouldn’t pass on the possibility of a setup by operators in retaliation for not supporting the guys in the field... if he was the one calling the shots (which does not seem to be the case)

So why isn’t he demanding to be heard? Why isn’t he being called to testify rather than putting out a statement that he needs time to put his life back together before he can say anything? Why are the Republicans and the Democrats being so understanding of his personal situation rather than the state of the USA? It all stinks.

Didn’t some guy on Hannity just say that Petraeus is writing news outlets as a ‘friend of Petraeus’?

A few thoughts.

1. He may be trying to save his marriage.

2. This is the soft way out. The hard way is a suicide note and eight shots from a six shot revolver in the back of the head. The Chicago way is pretty nasty, and Obama’s handlers play it very well.

3. He is willing to testify, but no one will listen any more.

I suspect it is a mix of all three.

Lessay you were a prez who had the following folks mad at you:

1. CIA
2. Israel
3. US Navy SEALS
4. US Secret Service

Could you go ANYWHERE...?

Ah I forgot —and the only people who like you are folks expecting you to give them STUFF which you do not have and cannot give.

Quite a doozy.

I don’t think we’ve heard the last from the General.

I think the conversation goes something like ‘If you want to ever see your full military pension again then you will play ball with Chicago’

So why isn’t he demanding to be heard?

He will. But not before the Secy of State.

Her Heinous was hoping Petraeus would go first so she could fashion her story afterwards. Thus, she said she couldn't testify; her excuse is she has some globe-trotting to do.

But now that Petraeus is not testifying quite so fast Madame Clinton may end up going first after all. We can trust that she is not so happy about that.

IMO, I think he has been purposely kept there for just such a time as this. The O administration has got irons in the fire all over the world, it was only a matter of time before they got burned. I believe they knew all along he would make an excellent “fall guy/scapegoat”.

I pray to GOD that the truth comes out and O is brought to justice.

Another thing I want to come out is how the black population in Libya are being slaughtered....NOT A SINGLE WORD ABOUT IT. YAHOO/GOOGLE “black population in Libya are being slaughtered”

yeah, Kessler said Petraeus is emailing news outlets. Not as retribution but self serving. Posing as a friend...friend of the family or whatever.

Brother is this a convoluted mess.

Very dirty business. Valerie Jarrett may have ordered the stand-down. Worse than Watergate, Americans were killed. Sad, but if this came up during a Republican Administration we would see so much information.

Shi-ite; he could write a “tell-all” book that would probably garner him millions...(plus, respect...maybe.)
