Well we need more info, but General P was at spook central, so you have to think someone was using this to pressure or blackmail him, and he quit rather than be in that position.
It’s possible he just up and resigned from a guilty conscience but there have to be some steps involved.
Mooslime Brotherhood, definitely Mooslime Brotherhood.
Amazing, isn’t it?
I hope he spills his guts.
Honor, duty, country.
He never should have taken this job.
Should have known it would involve covering for the Marxist.
Patreaus steps down over an affair, first step on the path to the truth, next step he can testify truthfully before Congress. Third step Impeachment of Obama.
Why would you resign over a bit of tail?
Makes no sense.
He is not even an elected official.
Petreus was being blackmailed into silence. The question I have is who set him up with the woman? Do you think that this was a simple inner-office affair or did someone dangle an attractive beauty in front of an old man and wait for him to take the bait? Petreus is far from the first older man to fall in the face of temptation, but someone who wanted leverage over him could have easily set him up.
I hope he copied documentS incriminating to 0bama over Benghazi and gave them away to Congressman Peter King like candy. IMPEACH OBAMA!
Maybe he had an affair with another officer or even an enlisted woman.
I wondered what 0bama was holding over his head to make him come out and lie about Benghazi. I think this is a pre-emptive move as 0bama was probably going to burn him anyway. Personally, I couldn’t care less if everybody connected with this president spontaneously burst into flames.
The Director of the friggin’ CIA cannot under any circumstances leave himself open to charges that he may be vulnerable to blackmail. He has no choice but to quit.
Y'know, I've been thinking all day that all this tearing up by Obama isn't because he's touched by his campaign supporters.
I think he was part of the cover up. He didn't have the guts to stand up to Obama and his cronies. The CIA head told the men to stand down. Petraeus already lied to Congress and said it was the video. He went along with the stupid story concocted by Obama’s top officials that night
He's getting out to save his own skin.
Why even mention he is leaving because of an affair? He could have said personal reasons.
Here’s his resignation letter, FWIW.
A key point FRiend. No need to say anymore except watch for the media to once more blame the video. Saw just that, this AM, the media blamed the video.
