Clinton Tied To Gen. Petraeus' Resignation; Possible Retaliation For Benghazi
the lightly braised turnip ^ | may 12, 2013 | RAMESH RHAMJAMI

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Benghazi scandal might have taken on yet another dimension. Facts uncovered concerning the firing of Gen. David Petraeus indicate that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have played a role in exposing Petraeus’ extramarital affair with biographer Paula Broadwell. Publication of this affair ultimately forced Petraeus to resign as CIA director.

If a link is proven between Clinton and the Petraeus sex scandal, it could be viewed as consistent with other allegations of retaliation by the Obama administration against the three “whistleblowers” that testified before Congress on May 8. Petraeus, who clashed with Clinton's State Dept. over the infamous "talking points," lost his job soon after.

Go get “Enemy of the State” from Netflix, and watch that final scene where Will Smith bluffs the NSA team into a shootout with the Mafia.

Just a typical day of life inside the Beltway.

Abandonment of the wounded by preventing all US assistance is cowardicw under fire. It is a high crime. Shame on Obama. This may be unprecedented in American history. Impeachment is too good for this coward.

CURL: Watch out for Petraeus in Benghazi scandal

From the article .....

Gen. David H. Petraeus, the former director forced to resign after a sex scandal, is a dangerous man to the Obama administration. Mad and intent on getting even, he's already talking, telling one reporter the talking points were "useless" and that he preferred not to use them at all. The floodgates will open this week, and by the end of business Friday, the scandal will be full blown.

If a link is proven between Clinton and the Petraeus sex scandal,

If? If??

It has been obvious from the beginning that he was being blackmailed.

I really think we will look back on this time in American history as among the darkest days of the Republic. And yes, I am aware of the Civil War and other such events.

One of the women distinctly recalls Clinton and Kelley as being “besties” during Clinton’s one year at the all-girls camp. Kelley – who was larger than the other girls – acted as Clintons’ “muscle.” Most girls tried to “steer clear” of them. This same woman also described an awkward encounter with Clinton that prevented Clinton from being invited back the following summer. Clinton “insisted” that the woman be her canoe partner. When in the open water outside the view of other campers, Clinton allegedly touched her “inappropriately” while applying sunscreen to her front.

The other woman described constant clashes with Kelley. According to this woman, Clinton was widely known to be exploring her sexuality with other girls. Hence, most tried to avoid her but had to contend with Kelley if Clinton showed an interest. “I know for a fact,” she said, that “many girls submitted to Clinton” to avoid retribution by Kelley. Apparently, Kelley’s Lebanese background also intimidated many of the camper

this is apparently satire: the article says jill kelley and hillary clinton attended summer camp in minnesota together but they differ in age by about 28 years (1947-1975)

Well, you did have the affair.

==

Why do these politicians and government personnel think they are immune from affairs being revealed, etc.

So what if Clinton spilled the beans. You still had the affair, General.

Why else do you think the Clintons became heavily involved with the ownership of The Enquirer?

==

On a related note, wonder how many FBI files Michelle has sitting on her dining room table in the residence?

Why. I ask you “why” didn’t Petraeus do the honorable and gutsy thing and resign once he learned of the scrubbing of the talking points?

The unfolding scandal reminds me of what Gen. Maximus told Commodus in Gladiator:

“The time for honoring yourself shall soon be at an end.”

It has been obvious from the beginning that he was being blackmailed.

Maybe we should go back and parse his statements from that time period and see if there are any little hints in his language.

Yes.... but not over his 'affair' with Paula. Once you let the 'secret' out, it's power is used up.

Besides, it was only the 'public' that didn't know about it. Everyone around him knew. I would also expect that if we checked, just about every 'on the road' military commander has some 'hottie' staff member that likes to cozy up to them.

Exposing the Paula affair was done to divert the public away from the real reason he resigned (meaning... told to quit or else).

Agree completely. That resignation was not over the affair. It was about Benghazi and all that dirty stuff that we don’t even know about yet.

Petraeus resigned - not because of the affair - but because he didn’t want to go to prison, prosecuted for treason or bumped off by the WH. Maybe his family was threatened too.

I would love to see Petraeus testify in an upcoming hearing, and say these exact words: "I was being blackmailed by Hillary Clinton." The media would never be able to ignore a statement like that.

If there was a camp called Womyn-tonka she would have gone to it, right? BTW ‘tonka’ means ‘buffalo’ in Lakota doesn’t it?

Odd site and not really all that creative much less humorous.

I look forward John Semmens writing more.

The General better watch out—he might have an “accident” before he can say anything more. I don’t trust these folks and would put nothing past them. Watch out if a lot of folks start to take their own lives and have fatal car wrecks.
