Skip to comments.Petraeus calls on Congress to back White House on Syria
Posted on 09/07/2013 3:36:01 PM PDT by RaceBannon
Retired Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, former CIA director under President Barack Obama, called strongly Saturday for Congress to back the White House on Syria, declaring that military action against the regime is necessary to deter Iran, North Korea and other would-be aggressors. Failure of Congress to approve the presidents request would have serious ramifications not just in the Mideast but around the world, Petraeus said in a four-sentence statement provided to POLITICO.

Was it SCOTT RITTER, who once told us of the WMD’s in Iraq...who then got caught in a sex scandal with underage women...who then came out as a Clinton Supporter???
Is Patreaus the new SCOTT RITTER??
Screw You, David.
Apparently the "General Betray Us" crowd had inside information.
I don’t know but I think Americans are pretty much done with war for a while and its especially true of wars that have no point.
Let him go. He’s just making his payback for all the free sex Obastard scored for him.
Fixing to be a real betray-us, huh?
You beat me to it.
This does not look good at all. Any guy with military savvy would avoid Syria like the plague, IMO, unless...
Betrayus was caught lying for Obama about Benghazi.
He has been disgraced not only for his lying, but for his young squeeze
on the side.
His opinion carries no weight with me.
Ya think they’re all compromised? Seems to be a lot of agreement on that?
I just saw “White House Down” movie—a real joke in light of what’s happening—Radial right wingers try to kill thge president to stop him from making peace in the Middle East—now the truth is Obama wants war! the movie was a fantasy Obama—a Peace-prise obama that doesn’t exist (if it ever did) and evil Republicans want war in the Middle East—now the right want peace and the president wants war—what a reversal—what Irony. Obama is so out of it.
Shouldn't he just stay retired?
He’s “all in”.
He’s “old school”.
He’s now a tool.
I don’t usually swear but,
Yep! They are all, to one degree or another, compromised.
Obama must have kept the pictures of Petraeus.
Obams's only salvation is WAR!
Given the economic problems resulting from printing trillions of dollars to waste in "saving" the American economy, the only answer is - sorry to say - WAR.
Obams will go down in history as a modern day Nero.
Gen. “Betray Us” sold his soul for a bowl of federal pottage years ago.
Petraeus has been in play since Bosnia, but not many have understood his role, his allegiance, or his master.
You are about to get a lesson.
I've been pondering that myself. I'm not absolutely certain either way, but the "noble" Al Qaeda "rebels" are most definitely unworthy of rolling the dice on their response. WHY? The choice is clear and it's NOT to act.
Another war we fought on behalf of the Saudis.
You should watch “Olympus Has Fallen”, a much better movie and much more entertaining.
It is sad if it turns out there are elements within the Kenyan’s administration, Feds at large, others, CFR, Int. Banks, whatever, that are holding him hostage to use as it pleases them.
We’ve got a lot of ranking people who stand to make a lot of money off war and nation building.
General Petraeus is so compromised I’d not be surprised seeing him wearing a dress flaking for LGBT military marriages.
“We’ve got a lot of ranking people who stand to make a lot of money off war and nation building.”
IMO, they would be the ones with American blood dripping off their hands. May God deal with them when the time comes. Meanwhile, we have human waste occupying DC, comments? Feel like you’re living in 1934 Germany yet?
I seriesly held out for Petreus as long as I could only because of his rank and service. I'm over it now.
Etc tu, Betray-Us?
Well that chick is hot. Look at his wife. And everyone can see why.
We the People need no advise from anyone considered great or small.
Because we ARE THE PEOPLE.
And we have said NO
He chose his Master in Haiti.
Now you know who it is.
Bingo. To the extent Petraeus was compromised. He quickly went on to his own seminar at this years Bilderberger meeting,
I don’t fault Mrs. P for the looks she was born with, but based on the pictures of her that I’ve seen she seems to make no attempt to make even modest cosmetic enhancements. I don’t get that.
Bottom line here is that Petraeus is in the know about Benghazi... and Benghazi means US arming al-qaeda “moderate” muslims through Turkey into Syria. No mystery there at all.
But the real question... were any Saudi chem weapons in that shipment? Sent by Prince Bandar to Turkey for crossing the border to Syria.
Athletic skank. Such a waste of US funds at the Point.
He’s a Bilderberger... right after his “retirement” Big seminar at their meeting.
Bigger agendas than US sovereignty. The new world Army of blue helmets and investment bankers.
If you have not read it... read “In the Garden of the Beasts”
by Nick Larson. It is riveting.. the inside story of Hitler’s circle in their earlier days of taking power.
Good analogy to obamaumao... the intelligentsia’s “black” put up jobber.
Story of FDR’s first ambassador to Germany in 1934. Appalling who was running Germany, and yes this is quite similar. The only thing missing domestically is the brownshirts, arguably possibly the dhs seizing people arms... and even video film makers who are Coptic Christians (the Benghazi “video” maker that caused the death of our ambassador— NOT).
I do recall the Air Force Command Chief Master Sergeant who gave me my briefing when I got my first security clearance - “MICE: money, ideology, compromise, ego.” Only question for the General is which one(s) now?
He;s PROBABLY getting paid by the SUDIS or someone HUGE to be doing this. GO AWAY!!!
Ideology apparently was settled right after graduation from the Point...to himself be true.
Compromise and ego given up with the scandal and resultant blown leadership chances.
So.... it’s money obviously.
She was there on the jogging runs with him, and after... just like an easy chair. Wrong—headed thinking at a perfect pre-menopausal male age. Ego and fluff... puff.
I cannot trust this man on any subject.
I fear he is one of two things: under duress, or a liberal.
Hate to admit my backing of Bush if he backed this loser.
Ya think theyre all compromised? Seems to be a lot of agreement on that?
Patraeus is still an idiot.
