Petraeus isn’t qualified. To be Secretary of State, you first have to run unsuccessfully for the Presidency.
I see no compelling reason to name Petraeus.
I agree with you as the 1LT Rassman/Kerry story in the Delta was about two jerks. I had two other SF pals at Nebraska Omaha in 70-72. One was Rassman’s CO of the IV Corps Mike Force Airboat Company. He had Rassman relieved. Kerry and Rassman were playing around with incendiary grenades. Kerry and his VVAW were mostly phonies. Kerry is a traitor as he went to Paris and met with the Viet Cong and NVA. Petraeus is 180 degrees opposite of Kerry.
He has made it quite plain where he stands, and he should feel free to spend the rest of his life on that traitor hill.
Thanks for updating me. Yes, the SFA is against Petraeus too. I had no idea he was in cahoots with Gabby Gifford’s
I was a fan of the younger (much younger, before he was well-known) Petraeus, but he is no longer an acceptable choice for any cabinet position. “Shall not be infringed” means what it says, and opposing the Constitution is a disqualifying characteristic for Cabinet appointees. Also, mishandling classified material is disqualifying. Petraeus may have something he can do in a support role, but not with a leadership position, not dealing with guns, gun laws, or legislation in general, and not dealing with classified material.
He would know about Benghazi.
Donald Trump should ask him about what really happened.
Like, first and foremost, giving over classified intel to his reporter girlfriend. How does this guy even have a security clearance?!?! Trump was rightly ripping Hillary to shreds over her handling of classified material. But a general who was forcibly retired and prosecuted for mishandling classified material is good to go? No freakin' way!!
By the way, saying that Patraeus and Hillary "mishandled" classified material is like saying that Nidal Hasan "mishandled" his AK-47.
I honestly don't believe that Patraeus would be anywhere near as bad as John Kerry but it's a moot argument anyway. Gross misjudgment with his handling of classified information, being forcibly retired because of it, and being prosecuted for it completely disqualifies him. I'll go even farther: there is no way that this guy should have a security clearance or be allowed to work for a govt. contractor in any way. The only dealings with the govt. Patreus should have is paying a couple grand a month on his fines.
>>Or Hillary Clinton 2.0!
1000+ Emails between the two?
