Skip to comments.(IBD) Was David Petraeus Blackmailed By Obama Administration To Hide Benghazi Truth?
Posted on 11/13/2012 2:20:46 PM PST by raptor22
Petraeus Scandal: An affair that was known to the FBI for months and kept from congressional oversight committees might explain his complicity in a false narrative of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the order to "stand down."
The addition of sex to Benghazigate adds a dimension sure to keep the scandal going and one that does indeed make Watergate seem like a third-rate burglary. The affair admitted to by Gen. David Petraeus, now our former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, might have attached blackmail or the potential for blackmail to a scandal we have already called a case of criminal negligence.
But blackmail by whom?
Petraeus isn't the first general to have an affair while in uniform. But as CIA director, Petraeus' knowledge of the nation's secrets was unparalleled, as was his knowledge of what happened and when regarding the assault on our consulate in Libya.
The timing of his resignation is most curious just days after the presidential election and days before he was scheduled to testify before Congress, under oath, regarding the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. CIA Deputy Director Michael Morrell is expected to testify in his place. But lawmakers want to hear from Petraeus, and so do we.
As we've noted, just two days after the attack on our Benghazi consulate, representatives of the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) gave Capitol Hill briefings in which they said the evidence supported an al-Qaida or al-Qaida-affiliated attack.
The FBI and NCTC also briefed that there were several al-Qaida training camps just outside Benghazi. The area was described as a hotbed for the militant Ansar al-Sharia as well as al-Qaida in North Africa.

I think he got setup so he will never run for Prez or VP and that Broadwell is an Obama agent.
What else would explain Betrayus testimony to congress and the
American people that the video caused a mob violence.
Obama had leverage and used it.
Yes, and is now being preemptively trashed to destroy his credibility. Even if he testifies and presents irrefutable evidence condeming Obama it will be dismissed as revenge.
I am more inclined to think the Twins , who have an axe to grind with a Bush appointee, are on the side of the Dems. One of them dates or dated a Kerry Fundraiser guy. .
Right out of the old KGB playbook...
A lot of us have been muttering about it....
The Petraeus Espionage File
Too bad Larry Sinclair’s affair didn’t get this kind of attention.
Petreaus is a democrat obviously a whore why he would turn on Obama...
He will NOT turn on Obama.. he fall on his vibrator..
ALL Chiefs of Staff are traitors OR THEY WOULD NOT BE THERE..
Yes we are back to Lebanon. So many trails around Obama lead back to Lebanon.
One of my favorites is the New York Girlfriend who was related to Jessup (who vouched for Alger Hiss.)

The body of retired Army General and former CIA head, David Petraeus, was found yesterday in Washingtons C & O canal after it was snagged by a 13 year old boy when he snagged it while fishing.
Petraeus, who had been granted congressional immunity for his testimony on the circumstances surrounding the murder of the 4 Americans at the Benghazi consulate earlier this year, failed to appear at the December 6th hearing.
It was reliably reported that he told key House Intelligence Committee staffers that he was ready to come clean and do the right thing.
Due to the high profile nature of this case, Attorney General Eric Holder has put the FBI in charge of the investigation. The body, found with an estimated 300 pounds of steel weights tied to it with steel cables and over 6 bullet wounds, was sent to the FBI Forensics Lab for examination.
While an expedited full autopsy report is expected in 2 to 3 days, a high level FBI spokesman declared at a press conference that This looks like a clear case of suicide to us.
I’d be willing to bet he was subtly blackmailed into giving tepid support to gays in the military that gave cover to all the RINO turds like Scott Brown to vote for repeal of DADT.
So my guess is that Obama's goons are on his tail every moment.
Remember the SEAL who was one of the group who took down Osama was supposedly in big trouble for writing his book.
Petreaus needs to stay out of Fort Marcy Park, and cancel the solo canoe trip.
