Scandal probe ensnares commander of U.S., NATO troops in Afghanistan ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
Washington Post ^ | November 12, 2012 | Craig Whitlock

Posted on 11/12/2012 10:22:04 PM PST by JouleZ

Here we go again. Obama is taking down the leadership of Americas military.(my words)

According to a senior U.S. defense official, the FBI has uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of “potentially inappropriate” emails between Allen and Jill Kelley, a 37-year-old Tampa woman whose close friendship with Petraeus ultimately led to his downfall. Allen, a Marine, succeeded Petraeus as the top allied commander in Afghanistan in July 2011.

Personally, I'm not interested in reading the Emails because that's exactly what 0bama wants.. To EMBARRASS AND DISCREDIT 'the old guard military brass'. Funny how the media won't get 0bama's pertinent documents but can't wait for us to read the next steamy Email from military brass.

I pray to God that the SEALs are still in place. I know a good many of them went down in a helicopter 'accident' after the OBL raid.. THAT STUNK TOO.

Who's to say the Anti-Christ or Satan can't be extraterrestrials?

Satan most definitely *is* an 'extraterrestrial', so to speak, as he is not a native of this planet. Extraterrestrial in *this* sense means solely that he is not of our world, and not an implication that he is from another planet in our physical universe...

Negligent homicide, depraved indifference, extreme dereliction of duty.

The fraud should be thrown out of the country. The families of the victims of Benghazi ought to sue him personally and take every penny.....yeah, I know - wishful thinking.

He knew he would “win” , so now he is dismantling all opposition or resistance to his plans to disarm us.

20-30,000 pages doesn't mean 20-30,000 separate e-mails.

Yes, it does. It's plain English. It's either true or false. And, if false, the utterer is a liar.

The volume suggests that document attachments were an important part of the traffic.

You raise an interesting point. Presumably, any attachments would have been graphic in nature (stills or moving). Graphic is always the best kind of attachment! The higher the resolution the better!

But an email with attachments still counts as one email, just as an email without attachments (e.g., "Date tonight? Under the desk?") counts as one.

It could be a failed coup or remnants thereof. Also, it could be a classic distraction, a head fake with the complicity of the media to get everything away from Benghazi, and get it onto what crass American grassroots people will eat up and turn their focus to: Generals and Sex, Generals and Sex, Generals and Sex, Generals and Sex, Generals and Sex, Generals and Sex, Generals and Sex

That would be an excellent way to change the subject when the forces of Congressional power are closing in on you over abject incompetence and perhaps criminal behavior over Benghazi-gate. They probably have a deep dossier on a lot of people they can intimidate or run out of the service to save their own asses. I would watch for an end run here folks. Let's not be so easily played for fools here and/or let them change the subject.

I fail to see how throwing these generals out of the service keeps them quiet.

Dead guys tell no tales, but fired guys are renowned for enthusiastically spilling the beans.

A fired general who spilled enough beans would be a shoe-in for a bestselling book.

"Naysayers?" How do you figure? Petraeus accepted the job from Obama---the SECOND POSITION HE TOOK FROM ZERO.

You are giving way too much credit to Obama and failing to see the broader picture of a military corruption that is crippling our Afghan work as much as Obama's malfeasance. This shows that there seems to be a lack of integrity running throughout. Opposing the gay-friendly/disarmament oriented Obama agenda demands people of total integrity and will be a long fight, and not one for people who have compromised themselves.

“What I saw at the coup”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2929658/posts

Some of the hate radio hosts began to fan the flames with crazy rumors that really weren’t so crazy, not to us. When they were taken off the air through a variety of means (but mainly for violating the “fomenting domestic terrorism” laws), the right wing nut jobs went absolutely mad with fury. The accusations about a secret purge continued. The plan was being laid out for all to see, even while it was being officially denied at every level, and was never reported on at all by our cooperating media networks and other friendly outlets.

And then the shooting started.

At a month and a half or so, it sometimes seemed that the plan was in danger of falling apart. I asked Dennis about it in private, but he appeared unworried. “It’s all part of the action-reaction calculus. It was all taken into account. We needed them to react. We’re in the second phase. We smoked them out into the open with phase one, and now we can go get them. Why do you think we bought billions of bullets for the DHS? Why do you think we paid for SWAT teams and armored cars in every Podunk town in America? We’ve been getting ready for this moment for years.”

“You knew this would happen? A civil war?”

He said, “It’s not a civil war—it’s a police action against criminals and domestic terrorists. But don’t worry: we’re ready. Now that they’re shooting at us, we can take the gloves off. The first two thousand arrests were just priming the pump. This phase will let us finish the job once and for all. Think about it: even now, nobody knows what happened to the first two thousand, or even that there were two thousand. In a month, nobody will remember if they were arrested before the shooting started, or after.”

Now we know why Jill Kelley hired a top criminal defense attorney for herself. Her alleged lover, Gen Allen could be subject to courts martial and it is possible that she came into possession of classifed information involving Allen’s Central Command (HQ in Tampa with responsibilty for Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia, IIRC).

That would be Elizabeth Hasselbeck .... her role is "conservative doormat", she's there to let the others righteously scold her. Baba Wawa is the ringleader and instigatrix. Whoopi Goldberg is on-again-off-again intelligent, Baba is intelligent but complicit in the Hive Mind, and that other one I wouldn't give you five cents for, she's a typically bigoted, cluelesss Easterner who thinks civilization stops at the Catskills.

Define 'evil'. One doesn't move around in those circles, no scratch that, one doesn't even *enter* into those circles, unless one has been co-opted to one degree, or another. At that level, even if a given individual is not what you would call 'evil to the core' like Obama and Jarrett, such an individual would be so severely compromised as to render them ineffectual.

For quite a long time now, our national defense, and foreign policies have been under the iron-clad monopoly of a few small, incestuous organizations, namely the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Tri-Lateral Commission. Their openly stated goal is "World Governance", or simply put a one-world government. Any Bible-believing Christian should understand at once what that means in the end. It is a poorly camouflaged description of the Antichrist, and his government which is to come...
