Didn’t he swear that the attack in Benghazi was about a video?

Since he was in a position to know better, isn’t that lying before congress?

How is it an “honor” to LEAVE AMERICANS BEHIND IN WAR?
and let them be raped for videos?
and an Ambassador and patriots, at that?

What a shameful end of American integrity
by Petraeus and Obama.

Bill Clinton’s bagman and jihad enforcer. The tip of the spear against Israel.

He’s played all the stoopids to the hilt and is now out of the limelight to wreak havoc as ordered.

He’s giving a speech? I thought discreet emails were more his style...

Here’s the speech old Dave should give.

“I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I betrayed my oath to my wife. I’m sorry that I made a laughingstock of the West Point Honor Code. I’m sorry that I was so inept that Iraq and Afghanistan are still wrecks. Thank-you.”

I admired him too but he chose to toe the Obama line rather than do what was right for the country. I’ll bet he could blow the lid off this sham presidency.

I never really knew much about him, but he must be of lesser light than his admirers thought.

Well, the GEN shouldn’t really worry so much as all of the service academies can no longer live up to their own honor codes.

Re: homosexuality.

Does the Honor Code change with time? What good is it then?

From this perspective either drop these so-called Honor Codes, or close down these institutions, and probably both as corrupting and corruptible the obamic influence will be on all the military from hence forward.

Why would anyone want to hear anything from Petraeus or hundreds of other liberals for that matter?

Petraeus feels dirty...

Congress was probably given a lie about why Petraeus 'had to' lie. Then a lie to cover that lie... he feels dirty.
