White House insists it was unaware of Petraeus scandal until day after election
fox news ^ | 11/13/2012 | fox news

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.

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.

Jill Kelly's "psychologically unstable" twin sister is Natalie Khawam. According to some recent reports Petraeus and Allen both wrote statements against Khawam's husband in favor of Natalie Khawam during a nasty custody battle.

And look who Natalie Khawam's ex-husband is

Wolfe served as Manager of the Private Sector Development Office of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, Iraq. In this capacity he was directly responsible for implementing a wide range of initiatives to attract foreign direct investment and provide financing to Iraqi companies. During this time, Wolfe worked extensively on the ground with senior Iraqi and Kurdish officials, and with the Ministries of Finance, Trade and Oil.

Talk about an incestuous governing class. Someone should ask him about the C-130's full of cash that went missing ....

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.

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.

An excellent point, which should be raised by journalist as a question to Jay Carney and/or Obozo. Oh, wait. Never mind. America no longer has journalists.

This story is getting wilder and wilder....which leads me to believe that Obama certainly is responsible for the stand down order in Benghazi. The White House is hoping we’ll all be distracted by the sex, lies and emails....

The House Republicans better go hard on this one. Impeachment seems more of a reality than originally thought.

I’m beginning to think this entire convoluted story was designed in advance to distract everyone from the massive voter fraud they were about to commit. They HAD to have some kind of contingency plan in place in case the fraud was too obvious. And it gives the media an excuse to ignore what’s going on in Florida. I’m sitting here right now watching CNN salivating over the sex stories, and no, the coverage doesn’t include the 4 dead heroes.

Good points you made. There’s still doubt that the man had any business running for President in the first place. It’s amazing how many people think the President lies about EVERYTHING (and rightfully so) but have no problem with him sealing all of his records and laugh at those who do have a problem with it.

The lies are so fast and furious and transparent that it is obvious they no longer care if anyone believes them. The truth is what they say it is and no one can make it otherwise - so far.

Then the WH reflexively blamed it on a Youtube video.

Good grief.
This is nothing to make light of; even Rush doesn’t quite see the whole picture.

Get rid of all the generals; put Kerry in as Sec of Def.

The real career military leaders will be gone.

No one will be left to lead the troops when the 2nd admendment is cancelled and the full dictatorship is in place, the soldiers won’t have anyone to follow...don’t worry, the brown shirts first graduating class has been finished.

That’s what is really happening.
