Skip to comments.Rumors Surface That Leon Panetta is Resigning
Posted on 08/26/2009 12:24:42 PM PDT by JerseyRepub
Our friends at Restate are hearing credible rumors that Leon Panetta is quitting over the proposed procecution of CIA operatives. If this is true, kudos to Leon...
CIA also has the unused footage from the fake moon landing which proves for all to see the fakery done in Burbank, CA.
I agree, his stock as a former Clintonista just went up. Wanna bet that Hil is going to be forced out soon...and that Panetta’s replacement is going to be another Stansfield Turner.
No honor among thieves in the Democrat party, but resigning would be the honorable thing for Panetta to do.
My only thought is that Zero had better hit his prayer rug hard and pray we don’t get hit during his term in office. The Republicans should make it absolutely clear that any attempt at politically motivated trials WILL result in criminal prosecution of any Obama administration flunkies guilty of subverting our national security, at the earliest possible opportunity.
There are still a few wildcards out there and The Clintons are one of them. Their legacy, if defined today, would range from mediocre (in eyes of Dems) to criminal for many others. This will motivate them bcz even they will look in the mirror at some point and see what Obama has done to them...the ultimate insult:
They have been marginalized
Somebody should begin a process now to provide some 'MAJOR IN$ENTIVE$ ' to Hill to run 3rd party in 2012...after another meat-grinder campaign against zero in the primaries.
That's if we make it that long without something unspeakable happening...
The CIA is riddled with libs, and they know how to work leaks. They will work hard to retaliate for a witch hunt.
Unfortunately, I think there may be covert operatives perishing as a result of deliberate upcoming exposures.
If he cares enough to quit - he should stay on... the next guy will be worse.
Yeah....the next guy will probably be ex KGB....or something.
If he’s a man of any decency at all he should resign.
Are there any pols who could run to the left of Obama? Is there anyone in the US that "left"?
Render obama. And his puppet Holder.
Not hard to fathom.
I stand corrected....you're right!
Really? Well, I hope it happens, hehe.
IMO, that is the reason for Bill’s visit to Panetta...giving him a heads up on what’s coming soon...you can bet the clintons let CIA and FBI in on what they know and have.......
A week later, his body surfaced in the marsh near his home. After a perfunctory autopsy, local police authorities closed the case as an accident.
Remember Phillip Berg was a Hillary supporter when he first started going after the BC....Hillary knows....BUt provingit is something else....If it was easy she would be President now.
Yes’m !! :)
The DNC were in the tank for BO...she was TOLD...to back off with some silly excuse as ‘we’ll lose the black vote forever’...and most likely Bill and Hill were threatened with exposure of treasonous activities when he was prez...
Leon was tapped as an idiot clown to head the CIA. Set up, knocked down.
Thanks for the ping!
BIG OLE BUMP! for later
Colby died in an alleged canoeing accident somewhere between his home on Neale Sound and the Wicomico River in Charles County, Maryland, a long way from the Chesapeake Bay.
Speculation as to his death being other than an accident arose from his being involved in evaluating FLIR footage of the Waco massacre, which allegedly contained images of US personnel firing on the Branch Davidians as they attempted to exit the burning complex, and which allegedly contained images of Government personnel engaging in firing on the Davidians after breaching part of the building from the back.
Speculation as to who caused the fire may also have been verified/refuted by that footage as well.
Colby was one of three FLIR experts to (seperately) meet an apparently untimely end as the information was being examined, was an experienced canoeist, knew the waters there and their quirks of tide and weather (had lived there some time), and his body was found without a life jacket about 100 yards downriver of Lancaster's Bar (that's a sand/oyster bar, not the drinking kind) after a three day search, the most extensive ever conducted in the area for a missing boater.
It is unlikely that he would have gone out without a flotation device alone, and injuries to the body further fueled speculation that his demise was not an accident.
He is probably powerless and stuck in the middle.
The other day, Hannity said that after the shouting match at the WH, Panetta had to send out an agency-wide memo to buck-up the troops ...
Hannity also said it is the 6th such memo Panetta has had to write ...
I’d be sick of the sh*t too, if I were Panetta ...
When I was in school he came and lectured one night. Afterwards, on a lark, in true spy fashion I followed him from the lecture hall, through the student center, through the campus woods and all the way to the parking lot. I was just curious if he had any bodyguards lurking about or if he did anything to see if he was being "followed".
Sadly he did not. Kind of popped my balloon about spies.
YO, Leon.. Thrown Under that bus, One too many times???
is that an allusion to the phrase “moving the deck chairs around” or perhaps a possible inspiration for michelle obama’s wardrobe?
Gen. Weasily Clark?
The Lexington, Kentucky Police Department reports finding a man’s body in the Kentucky River just west of the Clays Ferry Bridge. The dead man’s name will not be released until his family has been notified.
The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption. He was wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink g-string, a strap-on *****, purple lipstick, and an Obama t-shirt. He also had a cucumber in his ******.
The police removed the Obama t-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.
The Police do care!
I think Hillary is REALLY wishing she would of stayed in the Senate.
Who would replace Panetta ?...why Janet Reno of course...Of all the losers Obrama has surrounding him, she would fit in perfectly, especially since she knows nothing about Intelligence matters and she is a solid defender of the boss...Perfect for Rahm and Hussein...
If you have a round in the chamber, you can use the arm as a threat. That is the value of any ammo the Clinton's may have. Once fired, the damage is done, the leverage, the threat, is gone.
In the meantime, all the control options on the Clinton wish list are being put into place, by the Republicans and the Democrats, and when she does get the reins, Obama will get the blame.
Any powerful entrenched Democrats will be expendable, too, and that thins the herd of possible ambitious successor material.
It will be a cold day in Riyadh before any of the emplaced infrastructure is removed though, but the Clintons will not be generally blamed for its existence.
Now, I have said the Clintons, but what I want to know is who is their puppetmaster? Who are they the front team for?
Be a mensch, Leon. Do the right thing!
I have finally come to the conclusion that there are FEW accidents that happen in DC politics. I have fought the conspiracy folks for years, but I'm finally waking up to the Marxist/evil/self-preservation that so many in DC work towards.
I can no longer believe it is about simple "heartfelt" beliefs. It's about control; it's about Marxist theology; it's about changing the US into something that is going to make us FIGHT!
Mark these words. The fight is coming!
The French had some good ideas:
Problem is ... cleaning up the mess of p*ss and sh*t that those puss**s would leave in their wake. They think they are ALL that. Very few have any street experience. They are from priveledge. That's why the Founding Fathers believed in short terms in Congress and the WH and go back to your hard farm life.
“He is a career Democrat hack with genuine credentials.”
Love your tag line. I was wondering how long it would take folks to make the connection between “vacation” (out of sight) and Ramadan. Wonder exactly where and what they were doing last year about this time? There are reports surfacing that the WH has already selected a replacement for Panetta. Any credible info out there?
A better man would have stayed and fought to the death. But a worse man, probably his replacement, will simply throw them into the arena for a show trial and ad bestia punishment.
I think it is very unwise for any politician to take on the rank and file people who do the day-to-day life threatening work required of their jobs. It’s one thing to play fast and loose with the political appointees who cycle through the building. But taking on the “full-timers” is a whole different ball game.
This is particularly true with The Marxist Onada who, demonstrably, seems to have much he wishes to hide.
I think it’s just another indicator that The Onada crowd is way out of its depth. Their anger, their hate and their self-rightousness makes them blind to reality.
As for Panetta, I’m having trouble seeing him as a CIA advocate. But, if it turns out his resignation is in protest to the Holder investigation my hat’s off to him.
By your name, I infer that you know a bit about the CIA. I am merely an amateur.
So my first question ... This seems like an existential battle here. Can the CIA exist as an effective organization with a mission, strategy, core competency, etc., under the sort of scrutiny/governance/intrusions that Obama is pursuing?
My general sense is no, but I am no expert. I would appreciate your opinion CIApilot.
Second question ... If this is an existential fight, am I correct in assuming that the CIA will do what it must to ensure its survival?
I understand the need for an intelligence agency, and one that sometimes does nasty work. But I am afraid, as well, especially when it is populated by the ilk that presently run the show. There is a temptation to be giddy at the prospect of Obama and the CIA libs pounding each other. But even a moment’s reflection suggests that no real good can come from this.
Am I right?
You’re right. How long is Ramadan? Are they mandated to not work during this time, but to pray and fast?
What do these photos mean?
Leon was always a loyal Clintonista, wasn’t he? If this rumor proves to be true, can it mean that a move by Hillary is far behind?
CIA is a bad agency to cross. Sen Church, and Congressman Pike were defeated right after they finished keelhauling CIA in public.
I will watch to see how Pelosi and Holder fare in the aftermath of their attempt to slaughter of our heroes.
So far no points on this at The Hill or other DC outlets,.such as Politico. If he does, the next person will worse.
