Good find. That does seem to answer the question going around. It’s a great article on the whole. The author asks some very good questions.
This article states that the General did not attend the funeral, because the CIA involement was secret. ????????
Didn’t we FReepers know within 24 hrs. that the annex was for CIA operations? Do they really think that just because they don’t officially acknowledge something, it is secret?
Brought up initially by Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani
Then the article had this paragraph:
But the parade of high-profile surrogates who opened for the candidate fixated on another, more explosive issue one with a particular power to both animate conservatives, and frighten Romney's senior staff. For about 60 minutes before Romney took the stage, Topic A was Libya.
David Petraeus, your political skirt is showing... maybe your not the man most of us thought your were...
Giuliani needs to be front & center talking about this every day when & wherever he can.
He should be a visible & auditory link between Sept 11, 2001 and Sept 11, 2012.
Can’t ya just see the 10 or so of them, standing around in their Bermuda shorts & cameras around their necks?
That’s the most plausible explanation I’ve seen of their reactions to what happened. Makes perfect sense.
Are you old and tired? That’s my kinda guy! ;-)
Officers take an oath to defend the constitution and that oath doesn’t disolve with retirement. Any oath he might have taken to run the CIA cannot supercede the original. He has ZERO authority to follow an order he might know to be illegal and abandoning US Gov’t employees would sure get close to being illegal, not to mention extra-constitutional. He MUST explain himself soon because he’s losing me fast.——————————————————————————————————————————————————— Just to underline the point: He took his appointment from a democrat president who he knew was trying to cut his own military and who he knew was crooked as hell. He didn’t have to retire when he did-—could have waited a couple more years. While he seemed to be a competent officer he has a ways to go to prove himself in any other area. He now has his chance and the job carries a pass-or-fail grade.———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————Watch for new stars on the wall at Langley, CIA HQ. That will tell us how many of the folks we lost at Benghazi were actually CIA?
nope you got it...and since you used the scorpion analogy...all I can say is...’it is the middle east’
And maybe by taking the CIA job, he thought he could be part of the solution by cleaning things up and strengthening from the inside.
The man is a patriot. Patriots serve their country no matter who is in charge.
He should get the benefit of the doubt until the facts all come out.
AMEN!!! NO DECENT person would EVER work for Obama....NONE!!!! Patreaus is a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!
OMG!! We are being LIED to in EVERY direction!!!
Can Petraeus be tried for lying to the American people? He should at least be impeached. The CIA is not supposed to give out secrets. But they’re not supposed to make up lies to U.S. either.
Greta had Jason Chaffetz on after the latest leaks and after the classified documents were found in Benghazi. She pressed him repeatedly to denounce Obama over the content of the docs but he refused and only discussed unclassified memos that had been leaked to the media. Same with McCain. Greta couldn't get him to discuss any classified information and I believe that includes any discussion of the existence of the CIA "annex" in Benghazi.
That is why Romney has been so quiet, IMO. Think of how hard he would be hammered if he broke his sworn oath to keep all classified docs secret! Holder might even try to arrest him! Surrogates who don't receive the briefings, like Giuliani, aren't subject to any such restrictions so last night and today he has been hammering Obama.
Let’s also keep in mind that Libya is 6 hours ahead of DC. The WH knew about this at 3:40 or so in the afternoon.
I’ve had people use the 9:40PM angle on me like the world was all set to a single timezone. It wasn’t like Obama went to bed and things deteriorated.
1) this was not a real consulate according to sources.
2) my idea that Stevens was deliberately set up for death is backed by the statement here that the armed drones which NORMALLY fly over the chemical weapons depots were NOT flying that night. Was someone afraid they might be used?
Possibly. Hes also a man who follows orders - if his CIC gave an order, hes obliged to obey.
No he’s not. He could obey his conscience instead and quit, and have a press conference explaining why.
Could you add me to your little occasional ping list? I can’t find time to read everything. Every little pingagling helps...
