Investigate the FBI ( Regarding Benghazi and Petraeus )
foreignpolicy.com ^ | NOVEMBER 14, 2012 | BY TREVOR TIMM

The real Petraeus scandal is why the bureau was rummaging around in his private communications in the first place.

For the past week, Washington has been embroiled in an ever-escalating sex scandal involving Gen. David Petraeus, his biographer Paula Broadwell, and a third woman named Jill Kelley, and now, tangentially it seems, Gen. John Allen. The affair between Petraeus and Broadwell was discovered by the FBI and revealed late last week when Petraeus resigned as director of the CIA. But while the salacious details have kept Washington's press corps busy, the details about how the bureau ever got this information should concern us far more.

You mean the same FBI that attacked Randy Weaver? The same FBI that employed Lon Noriuchi, sniper, that killed his wife and baby? The same FBI that burned everyone at Waco? That FBI?

SECRET SERVICE sex scandal..

MILITARY LEADERS sex scandal..

COINCIDENCE? NO.

Overthrowing our Republic requires
DISGRACING the institutions we revere.

Who's 0bama working for? Who is behind him, orchestrating this? This is very George Soros-esque. I also consider the possibility that the old Soviet Union started this insurgency (0bama's mother Ann and his father Barack met in Russian language class; Was SHE an agent for the USSR?) with Medvedev/Putin carrying the ball.. 0bama said "After my election, I have more Flexibility"?? FOR WHAT?? For him to unilaterally DISARM the United States? 0bama is going to Russia.. WHY?

Is 0bama an OPERATIVE on behalf of a shadowy group such as the NWO or U.N. or stemming from the 'Soviet Union'?? WHO, exactly?

Is this just a continuance of the progressive-Socialist movement in the United States, going back to Woodrow Wilson and even further? I think there's a foreign connection, just not sure exactly who.

You mean the FBI who let Hillary and Bill have 400+ secret files on GOP office holders? The FBI that promoted the killers of babies and women at the Branch Davidian compound and at Ruby Ridge? That FBI?

So .... this thread or this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2959897/posts

Which to believe? I’m betting the FBI agent is getting a bad rap ... the other thread makes sense on a couple of issues ... like WHY there would have been an investigation started on some seemingly trivial, ‘cat fight’ silly emails .... like this information:

“So Humphries knew right off the bat that not only was Allen somehow involved in this but whoever was harassing Kelley had non-public info about both his and Petraeus’s whereabouts.”

The ‘presstitutes’ strike again.

If the President wasn’t informed, then why hasn’t Mueller and/or Holder been fired???

Unimaginable. Yet, there it is....

Sex, CIA....hey where’s the MONAY...?! Naw, it’s possible that last angle is coming into view:

The crazier of the hot twins was married to GRAYSON WOLFE, the CEO of Defense IT companies and founder of Akkadion Private Ventures LLC. The Akkadion Empire was in and around modern day Iraq, but 2 centuries before Christ. -they were a bunch or rich bad-asses, back in the day. But this Grayson feller is living in the here and now, and he has got LOTS of fingers is LOTS of pots.

Akkadion does lucrative government contracting thru the DOD for reconstruction in off-the-grid areas like Afghanistan and Iraq, etc.

Hey I’m SUUUUURE that the way his wife was seducing the FBI and DOD folks there was never any lucrative KICKBACKS to the GayMuzzie Administration, right...??? Cuz that would mean they were benefitting personally, in addition to the General/Admiral go-betweens, the Obama Admin, with the tax-payer footing the reconstruction/infrastructure bill.

PERISH THE THOUGHT...! Who are ya, that slob, Michael Moore...?! Come on, LEFTIES never want MONAY, right? Naw, they’re sooooo much better, right?

I mean...it’s not like GREEEN ENERGY could ever be an eleborate system for kickbacks to the dems, right? Same for Big Labor —not for kickbacks to the dems...

DOD BUCKS COULD NEVER BE FOR KICKBACKS TO OBAMA, NAAAAH..!!!

Jill Kelley lawyered up so professionally over some EMAIL..? Gosh it’s like she knows there is LOTS AND LOTS at stake, here, right? Like there is LOTS MORE to the story.

I’m sure there’s not MILLIONS of dollars of shady contracting we haven’t yet seen, right? Sorta like with Solyndra and Big Labor?

Sure are lots of Lebanese and Syrians coming out of the woodwork, right? Just like Tony Rezko, long-time buddy of GayMuzzie..?

GETTIN CLEARER NOW..?

I’d say there was plenty there to justify an FBI investigation into both Broadwell and Kelley. And I don’t think we know the half of it yet.

OK. Petraeus and Broadwell had an affair. Haven’t heard any criminal stuff, yet. Humphries hasn’t been charged with doing anything illegal, yet. Kelley has lawyered-up big and lawyered-up fast. Again, look at their motives. Which of these four has big money problems? Kelley.

See if you can find anything about a “missing safe” from one of the Benghazi sites.
How much $$$ was in that safe?

RE: "Beck has this situation nailed down...".
I'm sure a lot of us have been thinking along the same identical line as Beck on this matter.
I can remember quoting how stupid it had seemed for the Santa Cruz lefty to become D/DOD and have Petraeus elected as D/CIA.
It simply did not add up when that happened. Now we know why.
