I can’t get inside the general’s mind but what is the purpose of so openly confessing to an extramarital affair unless it was being held over his head to extort him? He could have been blackmailed by his girlfriend or by the White House. Chicago could have private investigators tracking everybody in D.C.
What you said.
Gen Betrays more than Just Us...Benghazi....possibly his wife....
Ernst Rohm found with young boy. Film at eleven.
Nobody rotates their Intel leadership upon a new election. Too many other positions of power are rotating and the leadership needs reliable timely intel when reforming their teams.
IMHO, there is an outside timetable driving events. Track the events and record the timelines for planned, preplanned, branch and sequal operations. A 4 year timeline may have just been initiated. Observe what happens (decision points) in 15, 30, 45, 60 and 90 day increments.
IMHO Petraeus won’t talk, so he doesn’t end up like Colby.
-wanted to escape blackmail-
Maybe it was the easy way out.. could be that an ‘affair’ is just as convienent a cover as the ‘movie’ was for the
Extramarital affair? That would get him extra points with democrats. There’s definitely more to this.
I wonder if in the very near future, that Petraeus will be found in some park with a gunshot to the head and a badly written suicide note.... as a civilian, he is a danger to the Obamanites.
Rep. Peter King mentioning on Sean Hannity show, that rumors are around about who the person was, and that they may have been accessing Petraeus’ computer.
It is Benghazi and he will testify. The media is so quick to repeat that the General says not about Benghazi, but affair, LOL, he lied to his wife, but media believes he tells them the truth.
A Stalin style purge, but with no blood showing????
It’s just sex.
Everybody does it.
This does not rise to the level of...
The democrat way. Discredit your enemy so his testimony can’t be credible.
Let's hope what he learned @ West Point still remains within him.
Duty. Honor. Country.
remember John Edward’s aide? he claimed paternity of the love child with wifey’s okay.
Agreed. But we need a name first.
Don't believe that isn't possible in our future either!
So now we know where his head was during Benghazi——giving himself a colonoscopy. I remember him claiming he didn’t give any orders——now I believe him about that anyway. Guess he was on a mission. Wonder if he will now join the 500 Ex Flags supporting Romney?
Explains the extraordinary “the video did it” Benghazi story, he was be blackmailed by the DumBO campaign.
My first reflex was, who is the babe? If we never see her, it’s a crock.
And then I thought, “Wonder if they sicced Valerie Plame on him?”/Sarc.
