Benghazi II: New and Improved, with Sex !!
nov 11, 2012 | self

Posted on 11/11/2012 6:39:55 AM PST by beebuster2000

To become truly great, scandals need to catch fire. They need to grow as fuel is added daily or weekly, leaks, new info. Post election, Benghazi was a fading campfire. Now, the Petraeus sex scandal has ignited it to a level that even the NYT can't ignore.

How long has the administration known? Did Petraeus beat the lie detector on his vetting as CIA Director? Or has the administration known all along? Who authorized the FBI investigation, and how come, since there is apparantley no crime alleged? And, her is the nut of it, what was Petraeus told to say about Benghazi? and who told him? Did he or his people knowingly provide false briefing to the dupe US UN Ambassador? And if not Petraeus, who?

But be assured of one thing, dear fellow freeper, the bonfire has started, and it wont be going away soon. Stay tuned.

I don’t fully get it. The head of the CIA is investigated by the FBI...and he doesn’t know it is occurring? I thought the CIA had a way of knowing everything. If anything, the head of the CIA should have the goods on everyone else. Something isn’t right with this situation.

Now, the Petraeus sex scandal has ignited it to a level that even the NYT can't ignore.

I hope you are right, but I am inclined to think that instead of increasing the scrutiny on the whole Benghazi episode, Petraeus' affair simply gives the liberal media a way to say they covered it by ONLY focusing on the sex.

It also sets up Petraeus as the ultimate fall guy for the administration. They will paint him as the guy who made the bad decisions because his mind was so pre-occupied with his affair. Therefore, the rest of the administration gets absolved of wrongdoing. Let's move on. Nothing to see here.

The affair is mis-direction.

I wish I could agree, but now the mediots and presstitutes will just say...

it's only about sex...private matter...none of our business...Republicans wallowing in sex again, just like Clinton/Lewinsky...nothing to see.

I have -0- ZERO confidence in the press to do its job. They just spent years getting their guy re-elected. They aren't going to knock him over now.

Petraeus had sex under the desk with his biographer Paula Broadwell...

And Obama’s book was written by Bill Ayers....

All good academic questions one who is from a decent and honest country with moral values and a high regard for integrity and diligence in the protection of it.

However, this election has shown us a preponderance of its people don't give a flying flip about things like that. They only want free crap, and more of it. Even if Obama has to take it away from old white men, they don't care - they getting paid!

All this is going nowhere. It will stay nowhere until it all breaks down and we are all equal, but poor.

This 'collection' of immigrants, illegal and not, minorities, sloths and no-goods are only in it for what they can get from others, and for a right-good measure of revenge for pent up anger. Liars, cheats, and stealers all voting to 'get theirs'.

Here is another weirdness that occurred to me:

You are a four star general in Afghanistan fighting a brutal war of counterinsurgency. so what do you do?

You have a “biographer” with you? Really?

And not just any biographer, a man eater babe, sending out intense aggressive sex vibe. If you don't believe me, look at some of the youtubes of her.

Note the dress, the arms, the body language.

So my question to Petraeus, at what point did you first think hmmm..., might want to nail this one. First time you met is my guess, Why would he have agreed to that? And if you are his commanding officer, why would you have allowed a warfighter to have a “biographer”?

The whole thing speaks to a level of hubris and self importance that i find disturbing, but common in DC.

For as long as I can remember, people on this site have been saying:

The dinosaur media is dead. New media now calls the shots!
The MSM has been covering stuff up, but they can't away with that anymore!
Their business model has failed -- now they have no choice but to tell the truth!
All they need to do is keep quiet until after the election, then they will tell us what we already know.

This has been a constant drumbeat throughout 2012 -- but it was a constant drumbeat in 1996 too. And 2000. And 2004. And 2008. And every year in between.

The media covers what it wants to cover -- and it does not want to cover scandals that make Democrats look bad.

Don’t get your hopes up FR eepers.

This aint going nowhere.

Am I pessimistic or Cynical? Hell yes I am, but I watched Fast& Furious go down the tubes
I watched as Holder turned loose the BlackPanthers..
I watched Obama make recess appointments when there was no recess
I watched Obama executive order Amnesty.
I watch the EPA closing down coal when Carbon Credit went down the tube.
I watched as Arapaio proved the Birth Certifictae to be phony
I watched as the Social Security card Obama holds is invalid. I watched Roberts make his own law instead of upholding the Constitution.
I watched as Obama watched 4 men killed in Benghazi and said it wasn’t optimal.

Excuse me if I am cynical or pessimistic, This won’t amount to squat.
Just another thing to add to my list of atrocities.

General Petreaus would have been thoroughly investigated and polygraphed prior to becoming head of the CIA. That means he was given the position despite his affair. That also means the President knew it before Petreaus became head of the CIA.

This leads me to believe that President Obama was blackmailing Petreaus to lie about Benghazi. It is the Chicago way. Blackmail is a felony. Pray for the Generals health. Blackmail is a felony!

The death of William Colby was very mysterious.

Some say it was because of The Franklin Cover Up.

Others think it was the Clintons.

In any case, the head of the CIA is a dangerous job.
I have never understood why they pulled Panetta out and put Petraeus in.

Now, maybe we are finding out why.

there is this:

When Petraeus left the military and took the job at the CIA, Broadwell kept in contact with him and sometimes was invited to his office for events such as his meeting with actress Angelina Jolie.

and take a look at this article:

and this video:

Something isn’t right with this situation.

I read in another article the FBI got a complaint from an unidentified woman she received threats from Broadwell through e-mails. While investigating the e-mails the FBI was concerned the Petraeus e-mail account had been hacked and a security breach had occurred. Did Broadwell have access to the CIA top secret computers? Probably not. If Petraeus's PC was hacked, that wouldn't be a National security breach on an unclassified computer.

Petraeus is a guy who made people go running with him to prove that he was a better man by being able to outrun them. Do you think someone that insecure might have an affair with a younger, good looking woman to prove he’s still virile?

Who is the biggest loser in this whole episode? Scott Broadwell, 43, Radiologist who has been cockolded on national TV. Maybe he absorbed too many x rays??

From what I gather, Mrs Broadwell, soon to be the former?, used Patraeus private PC to send hate e mails to some other babe. Wow.

Next year’s new reality show: CIA Director Relationships, above and below sight line.

BROADwell, aptly named. Reminds me of some of the better names of Bond Girls but I will not get into that now.

The odds are that they appointed him as head of the CIA AFTER they learned of his affair. It is possible they did that BECAUSE of the affair. But what is certain is that the Chicago Machine began to drudge up info on him after rumors began that Petraeus would be Mitt’s nominee —Hussein’s early political career in Illinois was permitted specifically by those same tactics. Hey he talks a lot about, “change” but I assure you that is not little gem that Hussein would absolutely not change —CUZ IT WORKS.

So remember the order:

1. rumors the Repubican VP would be Petraeus
2. search for dirt
3. discovery of dirt
4. VP nomination of Ryan, not Petraeus (mean this high-value card was put into storage)
5. Appointment of the compromised Petraeus to head of CIA
6. Bengazi melt-down “nasty YouTube vid did it, and dumb CIA didn’t do it’s job so they’re to blame”
7. Confrontation of comromised Petraeus with damning info
8. Proud Petraeus refuses to let his Agency take all the blame, goes off the prepared narrative
9. Petraeus outs his own indiscretions

I love the way folks on our side said for years that this guy was in over his head. With this and all the other points being listed above it appears we underestimated this thug president. He has been running a Tony Soprano regime the entire time. This incident is just one more example. This won’t amount to a hill of beans. The press will protect their piece of crap Prez.

Did Israel Honey Trap David Petraeus?

November 9th, 2012 | Author: Patriot

With the breaking news on General Petraeus (http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/cia-chief-petraeus-resigns-reportedly-over-affair-201305343–politics.html) you might be interested in taking a look at the Mondoweiss.net link (at the following New Statesman article) which broke the story about email exchanges with David Petraeus which US mainstream media ignored as well (as also mentioned on Press TV via http://tinyurl.com/proisraelbiasedmedia & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEtASJOjDU8).

The affair only became a matter of national security AFTER Benghazi. The admin is far more concerned with what Petraeus has confided to Broadwell about Benghazi. Who knows, he may have given her documents and information for safe keeping.

If this isn’t the “Chicago way”....

I know we are all feeling pretty down in the dumps about the election....but, take heart, fellow Conservatives....if the slimeballs in Chi are going this route?

THEY ARE IN TROUBLE.

Drip, drip, drip. The new media is doing an end run around the MSM.

I was a “liberal” until mugged by reality 9/11/01.

My husband explained a few things to me...it took me a few weeks to understand. It's taken me 10 years to really “get” Conservatism. So...take heart...people “get it” a lot of times.

Why I think Benghazi is different? Well, my hat is off to my very smart husband, again. He always tell me that when something is egregious it usually doesn't go away. If Obama purposefully gave a stand down order to not protect an Ambassador? That's egregious.

My husband is usually right. I'm counting on this to expose Barry and the MSM.

This is one of the most disturbing things to me, one of the biggest lessons from what just happened. They are NOT dead, their influence is still mighty over most of the populace. Those of us who read and understand more were lulled into a false sense of security by our belief the media’s influence was waning. But put it all together - from the very beginning, with the absurd attacks on Romney’s supposed “gaffes” (which were nothing more than his telling the truth) - then with the first debate, the general public finally got to see the real Obama. So the media sent in Candy Crowley to fix that. Add to that the constant cheerleading, from all sides, all the cutesy “human interest” stories about the Obamas - perhaps the worst was the internet. Every time you open your homepage or your webmail, there they are grinning at you, all cute and everything- Ohio Votes Early!!!” just as if this weren’t an election, but nothing more than Academy Awards night or the final game of the World Series. And if you never hear another side, that stuff adds up and has a powerful influence.

So I agree - give up the narrative that the dinosaur media is dead - it isn’t - but actively work to kill it.

Of course they knew all along. They saved it until the admin needed to shut him up.

Now he’s shamed, discredited and not believable. It’s a warning to anyone else who might blow the whistle on what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes in this Administration.
