Not for nothing...but I believe she went after him deliberately to bring him down. More proof of the power of a woman and why they are used as spies.
Wonder if Brennan has something on Obama ...or do all those Muslims stick together?
Gee, I wish someone had reason to spy on me. I need more spies in my life.
The Agency will soon have to figure out how to marginalize or remove that traitor and muslim convert Brennan, if he is not disposed of by the Senate.
Petraeus shouldn’t have allowed his loins to overpower his brain, but it’s obvious that he was forced out so as to bring in a jihadi-supporter.
I believe she was the trojan ho...and he was an idiot thinking he couldn’t fall. A man’s got to know his limitations.
FreeRepublic is like an ink blot test. LOL
I can almost guarantee that a couple of them will try to take you down....Curiousity is woman's worst enemy.
Petraeus brought himself down through his own stupidity, ego, and immorality. He has no one to blame but himself.
“Go to out of town bars.....Tell 10 chicks you work for the FBI....add shhhhhhh.
I can almost guarantee that a couple of them will try to take you down....Curiousity is woman’s worst enemy.”
Are you speaking from experience?
I call it the go-to, eastern European, leftist strategy for "socialist liberty", since they seen to implement it all over the globe.
Pretty smart..since it gets some of the enemy killed along with those pesky, knuckle-dragging, protectionist neocons killed at the same time.
If you have Netflix watch “Game of Cards” to see how politics works.
funny, I don’t think that at all. I think she had the hots for, his power and achievements. To me the more interesting aspect is Brennan and Benghazi and the off the book ops. Aren’t Brennan and Obama using the USA to further the interests of the Muslim Brotherhood...just like Michelle Bachman warned?
I think you mean house of cards
David P was taken out by his actions, not the uncovering of them.
It’s been obvious, call it what it is......Obama has his own not too secret government. He operates outside the boundaries of the constitution every opportunity he has, and flaunts it. IMPEACHMENT is the only answer.
If you want a friend in Washington...”Get a Dog!”
yes, they stick together
Thanks, yes I did, my brain was focused on what a game politics is.
“Boss” with Kelsey Grammer is another look into politics, Chicago style.
Very strong assertions by the authors. So, Brennan, sue them if it isn’t true. I tend to believe it is factual. Keeping Patraeus in the dark, direct attacks from the WH, etc., it is SOP for this regime.
Reading the whole article, the real bombshell here is Brennan’s secret off the books operation in N Africa that was unknown to the CIA and State Dept. I sure hope someone has the spine to see that he is questioned about this under oath before he’s confirmed as the CIA Director. Sounds like the plot line out of Clancy’s “Clear and Present Danger”
I think that this represents a major achievement by the American press, demonstrating that they are engaged in a neverending quest for the truth and will use the power of the press to tell the American people the real story about what is happening in Washington without regard to the political fallout. What’s that you say? The Daily Mail isn’t an American paper? It’s a Brit paper? So, the American media hasn’t reported any of this? Curious.
True women history has proved that women have been the best assassinations and spies.
We need more information on this. There is more to it.
Agreed! He was totally stupid. The head of the CIA, like other very important people CANNOT be having affairs. The reason is because they are then subject to being blackmailed and/or brought down by their enemies. And that is exactly what happened.
Reading the comments, I was thinking of the character, Peter Russo, congresssman to run for governor, and the politics involved in The House of Cards.
[I am at episode 12.]
Insightful series about the behind-the-scenes activities and back-stabbing in Washington.
Of course his body guards knew the story. That isn’t news. Others knew and disliked him and made sure it came out.
THe real news here is that Brennan was running secret ops and gun running.
So, the CIA careerists brought down Petraeus because of a quibble over tactics? Nope. Doesn’t pass the common sense test. Those CIA people would know that fighting with Petraeus could end their careers. They wouldn’t risk their careers in a disagreement over tactics. It’s something bigger or more personal than a disagreement over tactics in the CIA.
I am up to episode 4.
Watch “Boss” with Kelsey Grammar if you haven’t already.
(Cancelled after two seasons, amazing that it ever made it to television).
Brought down so that Brennan could replace him.
Linda Graham is tearing up on Benghazi on Face the Nation..says he will block nominations until they get explanation from the Administration. Maybe this book will get some press as a result.
Possibly, but now it looks like they are throwing Brennan under the bus. They are painting Brennan as some kind of Dr Strangelove running secret operations on his own. I think it’s something else. Follow the money.
Didn’t you hear?
The Daily Mail is part of the “vast right-wing conspiracy” to get truthful news to American citizens.
ping to claims that Benghazi was blowback for Brennan’s SpecOps war and arms smuggling in Libya which was withheld from CIA’s Petraeus and SOS’s Stevens.
Certainly sounds plausible.
I’m not so sure that “they” are the ones throwing Brennan under the bus.
I prefer to think that it is the Mossad.
(yes, I am already on the Conspiracy Nut Job ping list !)
Ditto......I wouldn't mind Anna Chapman being on or in my case 24/7.......
WOW! This administration is beginning to make the former Communist USSR and China look better than us.
BTW, someone asked what brennan has on obama. It was brennans EMPLOYEE, Lieutenanat Quarles, who hacked into obama's passport information and was subsequently murdered in his car in DC.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
