I second that emotion.
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.
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’?
Lessay you were a prez who had the following folks mad at you:
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.
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”
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.
I is really sick that ALL of this is from the UK media. NONE from US.
I think that the people who wanted him out of the CIA made an error. Gen Petraeus will be able to impeach whatever the CIA says without revealing much detail.
Can I ask a stupid question? Just because he had the affair and resigned, how does create a situation in which he will not have to testify? He was CIA director during these events and has a story to tell. Just because his personal life has troubles, somehow that gives an excuse to not testify? What am I missing?????
bump for later
And if he makes damaging allegations now, they’ll just say he’s getting revenge on those that brought him down and none of it’s true.
Thankfully we have the free British press.
