Skip to comments.Peggy Noonan: Petraeus resignation "mysterious"
Posted on 11/11/2012 7:53:01 PM PST by Arthurio
The resignation of CIA Director General David Petraeus has raised more questions than answers, said a roundtable of political analysts on "Face the Nation," including Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, who called his announced departure over an extramarital affair "a little too mysterious" and "strange."
"This feels a little Homeland, almost," Noonan said, referring to the cable television show about the CIA and terrorism. "And I just have to ask why do we have to lose him over this? That actually makes no sense."
Dee Dee Myers, former press secretary to President Bill Clinton, said Petreaus' resignation "raises so many other questions."
"It just seems incongruous right now that it got from this relationship to the FBI to him resigning and being urged to resign by [Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper." Myers said.
Political analysts David Gergen said a lot of people are skeptical and wonder if his resignation is tied to the September killings of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. He added that Petraeus should testify before Congress this week about the attacks on the U.S. Consulate there.

Peggy Noonan sold out to the Devil 4 years ago around the same time that Andrew Sullivan decided that his buggery was more important than his previous political arguments.
Who has resurrected this gasbag from virtual obscurity?
Pegs, please get lost already. No one is impressed.
Great insight, Peggy Obvious
Can't recall just what chapter, but it seems like all of them at once.
OBAMA....NICOLAE CARPATHIA. Can you tell the difference?
Hell, I could not stand this broad 20 years ago...she puts the Ph in phony!
Perplexing,puzzling>Not so much
My God, this woman is simply brilliant!
Exactly. I did not even read the excerpt; just saw Pegs’ name in the title and knew the article would be a bunch of babbling drivel.
I think Peggy needs to be tapped on the shoulder and told no one give a rats ass what she thinks is pertinent and that the cat house already has a madam.
Repubs need to subpoena everybody tomorrow!the election was last week.
I heard on a radio newscast this afternoon that Petraeus won't testify until he gets his life back in order.
The message, of course. But she states the obvious all the time.
“Peggy Noonan sold out to the Devil 4 years ago”
Peggy, please go away.
Yep. Piggy Noonan is a Manhattan liberal who masquerades as a “moderate Republican” because she enjoys the attention her novelty act gets her. Once upon a time she wrote a few good lines for Reagan, and that’s her claim to fame. Talk about milking your 15 minutes..
“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” — Eleanor Roosevelt (attributed to )
But then, if Thomas Sowell, excuse me, DR Thomas Sowell, had said the same thing, he’d be declared a genius here.
She probably hangs out a lot with David Brooks and they pretend to be rebellious moderate republicans in the hotbed of liberalism (NYC) together.
