Skip to comments.Glenn Beck Breaks Down Petraeus Scandal: ‘What Are the Odds?’
Posted on 11/13/2012 6:30:20 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
During Tuesdays broadcast, Glenn Beck delved into the developing sex scandal involving David Petraeus, former director of the CIA. The former four-star general resigned his CIA post last week after acknowledging an extramarital affair.
However, the timing of his resignation just days before he was scheduled to testify before Congress about the Benghazi terrorist attack seems a little too coincidental, Beck explained.
Petraeus was set to be the key witness in the Benghazi testimony this week, he said. But wouldnt you know it, the FBI accidentally stumbled upon some private emails and determined that he was having an affair.
What are the odds?

I recall this little historical nugget: The BlombergFritsch Affair were two related scandals in early 1938 that resulted in the subjugation of the German Armed Forces (Wehrmacht) to dictator Adolf Hitler. Hitler had been dissatisfied with these two highest-ranking military officials and regarded them as too hesitant towards the war preparations he demanded. Numerous other generals were moved about. Most important, Hitler took personal command of the armed forces through the new Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW) using General Wilhelm Keitel as his subservient aide.
Interesting and something to watch for. Thanks.
There is nothing left but details...........
In 2009 Petraeus was treated for prostate cancer. Without a prostate, it’s difficult for a man to function sexually. Surprised no one has mentioned this. Yet another twist on a strange story.
I’m afraid you’re right. We’re also so engaged in this new scandal that the scandals of voter fraud fail to make it even into the back pages.
That’s not a ‘little historical nugget’....that’s a blueprint...............
Actually I mentioned it here, with a snark:
It’s never the top officers that are dangerous, it’s the junior officers..............
Yes...but it is not clear at this point that Obama is driving it.
I hope Petreaus writes everything down and puts it on the web. Folks should know the truth.
Just a coincidence that since the embassy attack the CO of AFRICOM is relieved, the CO of the carrier strike group in the Middle East is relieved and the CIA director’s resignation is requested? I’d like to see Beck put this on the chalk board.
The book about it is titled, “The Night of the Long Knives”.
Chicago thugs versus the Intelligence Community. The Bamster and company have no clue about the territory they are entering.
Does seem odd that several top military leaders are being purged now. Wonder where this will lead to?
Agreed. The CIA likely has all the goods on Obama. It takes just one Mitch Rapp to bring the house of cards down. Spooks are not to be taken lightly - or advantage of.
To add, its very apparent that once Petraeus was promoted by Obama, he became a mouth piece for the master himself. Petraeus has been nothing more than an administration puppet since that time, which make me believe he was set up from the get go.
“In 2009 Petraeus was treated for prostate cancer. Without a prostate, its difficult for a man to function sexually. Surprised no one has mentioned this. Yet another twist on a strange story.”
I’ve questioned it numerous times. The nature of the extramarital affair could have been a non-sexual “romantic friendship.”
“The book about it is titled, The Night of the Long Knives.”
I thought the “Night of the Long Knives” was when Hitler had the SS round up and execute Ernst Rohm and the leaders of the SA.
Wasn’t the SS not even part of the Wermacht back then?
