I can’t wait to see the replacements. Obama is certainly changing the face of the military.

According to a senior U.S. defense official, the FBI has uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 documents — most of them e-mails — of “potentially inappropriate” communications between Allen and Jill Kelley, a 37-year-old Tampa woman whose close relationship with Petraeus ultimately led to his downfall.

Huh?

So Petraeus the former commander was having an affair with a woman who threatened Kelley, who in turn was having "inappropriate communications" with the current commander?

Am I getting this? If so, WTF? Seriously.

Thousands of pages of emails?

That’s just crazy. No executive in the world would have the time to send hundreds daily. This is Gestapo crap.

And not only that, any executive has been taught (very early) that emails can be subpoenaed. No one with the brains to get this far would make that mistake.

Obama ha sure read his Stalin.

I don't know what the hell is going on but its big and Obama is growing desperate enough to try and call on one of his pursuers to save him.

This is a repost from another thread.
Take note. The 2 high ranking Navy officers took themselves out of it. Ham resigned. The other, it looks like, might have registered a formal, written complaint about being ordered either to stand down or for not receiving any order at all to help/rescue those guys in Libya.
The other high ranking officers who are being 'outed' in scandal are arabists and anti-Israel muslim sympathizers...including petraeus' so-called mistress...who SUPPORT obama.
Just food for thought.
**********************************************
I offer this quote from the WaPo article to justify my earlier claim. Make of it what you will.
"Petraeus’s fall from grace shocked the CIA but especially stunned his former colleagues in the Army, where he was considered one of the most brilliant and influential commanders of his generation. Allen, a Marine, was likewise seen as an intellectual and upstanding role model who first made his mark as a general in Iraq during the George W. Bush administration and later earned Obama’s confidence.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

Wasn’t John Allen critical of the Afghan war’s ROI and “mad as hell” about the insider assassinations by Afghan troops and police? I believe this was a month or so ago on 60 Minutes with Lara Logan.

Military purge, alright.

Not buying this. Read Gen Allen's bio.

This is either either a purge or a smoke screen for something else.

Who e mails 20,000 documents? Every time I turn this lap top on this cancer has grown. From the 9/11 attack killing 4 Americans,and lies about it being over a video to Obama, Clinton, the CIA, Pentagon, FBI, loose women, secret prisons w/ prisoner, threats, the cover up and now a Marine General.
We’ll see what today brings. Now this, this is a cancer taking over the body.
zer0 will be busy with this for quite some time

Yeah... and somehow this commander did it with a woman who was threatened by the mistress of the former commander - who was his close friend.

I'm not wrapping my head around this. Then again, I'm not wrapping my head around a lot of things over the past week.

Well, noticed yesterday morning that The Donald during his Monday morning chat with F&F stated “there may be others”. While Trump is not necessarily the be all end all reliable authority on news he is pretty well connected. So, will be interesting to see what and who else is flushed out as this soap opera progresses.

Much bigger.

The question is whether this is emanating from the WH or some group opposed to the WH.

Considering the gathering speed of this story in general, the conclusion and the reason for all this will most likely be revealed in the next few weeks.

Throwing out something. Two spellings of Orka or Orca. One spelling Orka. One spelling Orca. and the Or in both. We know Orka is a fish (very large fish, and the killer nickname) in the ocean. We know Orca is a corporation, or a project employed by the Romney Campaign to get out the vote, or is Orca something different from the two prior. Orca is recent or not? Breaking the two word down further. Take Orka. Is the state of Kansas implied or a fact in some sort of code? Now Orca. Is the state of California implied or code? Now look at the states. Am familiar with both states and facts and am at this point forgetting the implied of the implications. Sex, Sex, Sex. Agreement sex is being used as a distraction. Am not forgetting that also. Digging Deeper, but must back away for the moment.

wait a second - as a vet I want to ask this question, “If the second in command had time to send 20,000 pages of e-mails, in 18 months, to a married woman, what the heck was he doing to run the organization?” What we see is two members of the Afgan military machine for the USA who are either on trial or under investigation.Plus their former commander leaving in disgrace. At the Klinton WH it was one crappy guy, this is the top brass!! Tom Clancy or LaCarre could have written this script to show how honey traps caught the top brass.

Can you flesh this out a little Mesta.... (Wikipedia: An Arabist is someone normally from outside the Arab World who specialises in the study of the Arabic language and culture (usually including Arabic literature). Didn't Drudge have something about the new director being an arabist? I'll check again...

Jill Kelley’s brother is David Khawam and Jill’s twin sister is Natalie Khawam. “The Khawam family of six moved from Lebanon to Huntingdon Valley, Montgomery County to escape war in the 70s.” (source: ABC action news)

LEBANON!!!!!

Does that throw up some red flags to anyone? Is someone paying or blackmailing Kelly to do this to help bring down patriotic military? Just asking.

You are aware of the fact that are Maronite Christians in Lebanon?

Which is what the Khawam family are.

Not everyone in the Middle East is Muslim. Ever hear of Coptic Christians? They just elected a new Pope.

Just like not all Mexicans are Catholics.

Everyone needs to keep in mind that if the FBI did not have proper legal authority to read these emails...they are the ones that have broken the law.

Somebody needs to start demanding to see the FBI’s judge signed orders to snoop, as well as all orders signed by Obama on Sept. 11, 2012!!

Obama is using the FBI as an arm of his personal marxist political machine.

If we don’t get to the bottom of this whole thing, our country is doomed. He is purging our military in order to put in his Marxist lackeys IMHO.

Using 18 months, 30 days per month, and 15,000 (number between 10K & 20K), that would be 27 emails/day .... JUST to Kelly. Sort of takes a chunk out of ‘official duty’ time. The volume of non-work related emails is inappropriate, regardless of the content and I seriously doubt you can send 27 emails a day to a woman not your wife without getting into some inappropriate content.
