Skip to comments.Giuliani: Petraeus resignation 'convenient' for Obama administration
Posted on 11/10/2012 11:45:36 AM PST by RoosterRedux
Now were going to have a hearing next week, and the man who knows the facts, David Petraeus hes the only man who can really tell us what the CIA knew, what they did, why they did it, how they did it hes not going to testify. This is a very convenient way to get the administration out of a very very difficult situation, Mr. Giuliani said on Greta van Susterens show.
But this is inevitable. This is like Watergate. This is all going to come out. It may take a month, it may take five months. But this is all going to come out. And every single new coverup they do just makes it much much worse.
Mr. Giuliani was skeptical about the timing of the resignation, coming just days after the re-election of President Obama to a second term.
This has to have been suppressed.
They didnt just find out about this, said the former mayor, now a security consultant.

FReepers with the most knowledge about what is going on in Washington please update..
The Great Purge a series of campaigns of political repression and murder in the Soviet Union orchestrated by Joseph Stalin . . . .
with appropriate examples and facts about Great Purges of modern times. Thanks. :)

In Watergate the media went all out to condemn Republicans. They bring it up every year so that each new generation of Americans learn about the evil Republicans. In Benghazi the media will be equally as zealous in covering up for Dems. Most Americans probably couldn’t even tell you what Benghazi was about.
But the new media, i.e. the internet (including info disseminated by FR), will break this story wide open.
So Petraeus had an affair plus many others who haven’t been identified. Why hasn’t anything come forth on Huma Abedin (family has ties with Muslim Brotherhood and beyond) who works along side Hillary and goes wherever Hillary goes. Married to Anthony Weiner. Why isn’t the FBI monitoring every email, phone communication etc. on this pair. Another Obama/Hillary coverup. Her muslim connections know more than Obama Muslim connections know.
Rudy’s living in a Pollyanna world.I guess he thinks that Tingles Matthews is gonna play the role of Woodward.And,I guess,Candy Crowley will play Bernstein.
Petraeus said he was looking forward to sex on the witness stand.
Julie Annie knows all about inconvenient affairs. I remain thankful that he didn’t get the nomination in 2008.
We will never overthrow this communists empire that America has become. We have been destroyed from within by the most ignorant Americans this Country has ever had.
Well, we can't just give up.
Join the resistence.
Right. And his former police commissioner Bernie Kerik is serving time in a Federal prison right now for graft and corruption.
Did he have an affair..probably..but this being released NOW has nothing to do with any affair, it has to do with having Petraus testifying about what he knows about Libya..its going to come out eventually..there is a massive, MASSIVE cover up going on here..I would not be surprised at the least if Obama ordered the hit on Stevens because of what he knew about guns being trafficked to Syria from Turkey..just so happens Stevens as meeting that day to discuss the arms smuggling operation..I think that is when Obama ordered the hit
Is there some reason that Congress cannot subpoena a former official to testify about what happened on his watch?
Exactly. Once I got over the 24 hour mourning period, I resolved to never give in. The future is what we make it.
We still have many like-minded patriots in every section of the country. In fact, we have more support now for the cause of liberty than at the start of the Revolution. We have all the resources we need to prevail.
The opposition is haughty and overconfident right now. However, most of their support comes from a fickle, selfish and undisciplined rabble. They have the support of pot smokers, lay-abouts, welfare recipients, and criminal thugs (the only real fighters they have). We have the support and affection of veterans, most of the active duty forces, most of the police, and the self-reliant who are today’s warrior-class of the American public.
Our political leaders have let us down. We need to encourage veterans and self-made people to run for office. These candidates must believe in limited government and maximum individual liberty. These candidate can’t be effete country-club Republicans. They have to be able to mix it up and get their hands dirty if required. If a socialist grins at them like a hyena, our candidates must put them in their place using language that any socially-promoted, public school graduate can understand.
We have many tools to resist the Marxists. Most of them require some social and new media savvy. Breitbart was great at this. He understood the left and popular culture. We need to find dozens of Breitbarts sympathetic to our cause and then mercilessly ridicule, mock, and attack the left. So far it’s been a pretty one-sided fight in that regard with the left eating our lunch. The campaign must begin today.
So, cheer up fellow freepers. We can move this mountain. We can throw a wrench into the machine. We will stop it’s gears moving inexorably towards collectivism. We will win because our cause is just and the Constitution and our proud history will be our guide.
No. And I understand Congress can grant immunity from prosecution re: the testimony so that Petraeus will be free to spill the beans (and can’t take the 5th).
Remember in one of the GODFATHER movies where the guy was going to testify against the family, and then, at the trial, the family brings in the guy’s brother from Sicily? The informer doesn’t know anything, but the message he gets is “We can get your family”. Have any of these grifters testify, and then, in the middle of their testimony, have Petraeus walk in with a couple of guys in suits and just sit down. It would be worth it just to see the look on these grifter’s faces. They’d be thinking, “What’s he doing here? Is he here to listen to my testimony? Will he refute what I say? Are they trying to scare me?” It would be wonderful. He wouldn’t have to say a thing.
Rumor mill has it the Van Jones will be appointed CZAR of the CIA.
Yes, but the MSM will make it all about Petraeus, Broadwell and the sex and nothing about the details of what happened with Obama and Benghazi.
Rumor also has it that Paula Broadwell, Alotta Fagina, and Ivana Humpalot are the same secret agent.
And, I might add, a former Associate Attorney General.
Correct, this was a setup almost 2 years ago. Everyone needs to check out the NewsMax article on this. I think 0zer0 set Petraeus up from day one and the FBI had to know about this affair in real time. According to the article, the FBI suspected the issue in the Spring 2011 when Petraeus was commander in Afghanistan at that time. 0zer0 appointed Petraeus to CIA in April 2011, but he didnt assume the office until Sep 2011.
The article says the FBI was investigating this for months because Petraeus was sending thousands of emails to her. That had to be in 2011. This means that the FBI had to know what was going on in real time, probably as Petraeus was being vetted for the CIA post, and certainly before he was confirmed, and that is why they couldnt believe 0zer0 wouldnt fire this guy, let alone hire the guy.
I dont see any explanation other than 0zer0 knew about this (or someone high up in the admin did, and didnt tell anyone... FBI director Mueller had to know, and that means Holder had to know, and probably National Security Director Donolon). That means 0zer0 had to know, and is lying about this when the WH says they first found out about it Wednesday after the election.
I bet 0zer0 knew Petraeus was compromised when he appointed him and counted on this trump card to be used against Petraeus when he needed it, and Benghazi is it. The timeline proves it.
Whether Petraeus has any smoking gun information and will spill it is completely unknown. But for me, I am convinced that 0zer0 knew about the affair and deliberately appointed and retained an obviously compromised CIA director to have something to blackmail him with later. This explains why a compromised CIA director was ok to appoint and retain for over a year, but now a year after the affair, is a liability only because Benghazi is hitting the fan. This confirms everything you need to know about 0zer0.
They really were not interested in saving Stevens life. The two SEALS bothched the original plans to remove Stevens and Obama did not know what to do but just be Present and hope that no one would catch onto the fact that he would not give the clearance to save the 4 lives. I really think he feels the investigation will not happen because of the helpful media coverage that he has enjoyed for 4 years. And he may very well be right. They may not cover this story like they pretty much have let Fast and Furious drop. We shall see.
I was always suspicious of the way that the left cozied up to Petraeus, after they dubbed him “General Betray Us” and Hillary did her “suspension of disbelief” grandstanding.
