Petraeus Resigns as CIA Director- Timing and Excuse, IíM NOT BUYING IT.
Jan Morgan ^ | 11.9.2012 | Jan Morgan

Posted on 11/09/2012 1:02:17 PM PST by Morgana

CIA Director David Petraeus today submitted his letter of resignation to President Obama. The move was announced in a statement by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. The excuse he has cited is an extra-marital affair. I’m not buying it. The timing just before some of the the most serious Congressional hearings of our time, (the Benghazi hearings) next week, is more than intriguing.

I’m not buying what they’re selling either.
Just like I’m not buying that Hussein’s re-election is legitimate.

No one admits to an affair if it didn’t happen.
What his reason was for announcing it at this particular time, that’s something else.

I think the story was dictated by Obama.

Why would he admit to such a thing in such a public way. Why not just say “for personal reasons” and leave it at that? Very strange.

I'm sure there was an affair and Obama’s henchmen have used to it get Petraeus to resign before the Benghazi hearings begin. I would question the intelligence (or honesty) of anyone who doesn't see it this way.

The only way I could see this as a valid reason to step down is if he was boofing a Mata Hari and compromised national secrets.

If that happened why wouldn’t Obama use the opportunity to burn the evil military guy in public?

Show himself to be a real CIC that doesn’t fool around and takes national security seriously?

Of course, he had to give a reason and one that people wouldn’t question. No one would say they were having an affair if they weren’t.

This scares the living daylights out of me. Not because I am a fan of Petraeus, but because of the closed door meeting this week, the other top brass who were “relieved”, & Clinton’s resignation (not buying her plans to run in 2016)

Praying that the right people are vigilant & won’t hesitate to uphold their oath.

Bingo.
And frankly, affairs are no reason for resignation, unless your gig in Gov is that of the Morals police.

“Jarrett strikes back!”

And here you thought Bronco Bama was the commanding presence in the White Hut.

This looks like a paint job done after the fact. General Petraeus is taking retirement from the CIA not for the stated reason (infidelity), which looks more and more like a “honey pot” setup, but because he was not willing to act the patsy for this criminal regime operating out of the White Hut.

The cover story, that he indulged in an extramarital affair, is meant to make him radioactive.

He had become a satellite of the Current Regime in what is considered to be a “non-political” position, to keep him shut up about what REALLY happened in the CIA.

Resignation is the only honorable course of action when the corruption is as deep, corrosive and pernicious as what has been going on.

The fact that a “gotcha” was planted on him as he was being rushed out the door, is just their way of pre-emptively discrediting whatever he may have to say.

From the "Comments" section of SFGate, which overwhelmingly supported Clinton the rapist:

"While I could care less that he was having an affair, his poor judgement in his personal life reflects on his judgement abilities as CIA director. He was right to resign."

He says that he is looking forward to testifying BEHIND CLOSED DOORS NEXT WEEK IN THE HOUSE... something tells me he will not look forward to it once he is there. This guys smells dirty and anyone with obama is dirty... blackmailed by axlerod to keep Benghazi from bringing jug ears down? Something even worse?

I bet he is going to sing like a bird and over a lot of things a la John Dean. I bet he has files on all the crooks in the government to send them all to Leavenworth or line them up against a firing squad. He is falling on his sword for the good of the country.

legalistic questions:

is he any freer, with regard to being questioned by Congress, as the ex-CIA chief than a sitting CIA-chief?

can executive privilege as easily block, selectively, the testimony of a former cabinet official as a sitting one?

if the second question is yes, does it apply to “opinion” as well as rememberances of official actions, or offical information?

i think the answers to those questions could either spell benefits or risks for Obama

But then the Commander in Chief did not resign. But that’s ok of course because he explained that he did not touch her, she touched him!

Her it is straight from CNN.
