The White House insisted Tuesday that it was not aware of the David Petraeus scandal until last Wednesday, blaming FBI "protocols" for not being informed earlier.
Press Secretary Jay Carney said President Obama was "surprised" when he learned last Thursday that Petraeus had carried on an extramarital affair. While the FBI had at that point already been investigating for months, Carney said "protocols" at the agency apparently kept them from notifying Congress and other agencies in the Executive Branch.
In the latest shoe to drop, the FBI on Sunday forwarded to the Pentagon a case involving thousands of "potentially inappropriate" emails between one of the women linked to the scandal and Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan.
The White House did not know about any of this, Carney said.
"It is simply a fact that the White House was not aware of the situation regarding General Petraeus until Wednesday and the situation regarding General Allen until Friday," Carney said.

for a “brilliant” (so called) President, he sure is stupid.
If true, that's another reason why the communist in our White House should be impeached. A White House that permits an investigation of the CIA director (over an issue that could lead to blackmail) to take place without informing the Attorney General and the "Commander"-in-Chief is not competent to safeguard our security. If not, it's yet more proof that we are being ruled by compulsive liars who will say and do anything to retain power over us.
Hey Obama...”you lie!”
And look who Natalie Khawam's ex-husband is

Talk about an incestuous governing class. Someone should ask him about the C-130's full of cash that went missing ....
What was that the president said about children and bullspitters?
I’m gonna run this by my children. I’m guessing they will go with BS.
Obviously we are expected NOT to notice that the Emperor is NOT wearing any clothing. Carney and Obozo believe that Americans are fools. Well, around 60 million Americans (give or take the fraudulent votes) are.
Better print it out before it’s scrubbed.
This tells me one of two things:
1) Pure BS and liars, or...
2) Totally incompetent.
You look up lie in the dictionary and there’s a photo of the Obama White House. This group of scallywags has misled the American people time and time again. It’s obvious their unethical behavior will continue the next four years with the marshmallow MSM sucking it up rather than doing their job.
He must have said this on Leno or Letterman to get a big laugh.
