Discussion of why there is an investigation on this level.

That’s right, Butch, they’re onto you too. In your case only for entertainment.
Maybe it goes back to the Patriot Act. We all volunteered to be suspects?
A person of interest? Hell, they’re prolly monitoring all of us, especially Freepers.
Keeping an eye on top government officials seems like a good idea to me. :p
The dyke who just bought 1.5 billion rounds for NO REASON is full of questions? Wow, now that is RICH.
As I understand it, the “other woman” was threatened by Petraeus’ biographer. The “other woman” reported the threats to the FBI, and they followed the email trail back and discovered Petraeus’ connection. They then looked into his email to determine whether or not he had been releasing classified info to the biographer. Granted that the affair should have been caught during his background check, or as part of the periodic investigations for his security clearance, but this kind of thing is not outside the bounds of what Petraeus would be checked up on normally.
It’s the FBI’s job to do this kind of checking, particularly on a high-ranking general and later holder of the director of the country’s intelligence agency, where he is exposed to a substantial amount of high-priority intelligence on a regular basis. There has to be absolute confidence that he is not in a position to be compromised by something exactly like this affair.
Andrew, not Janet.
This is not Janet. This is a well-known conservative court judge.
Why worry about Patraeus? Obambi tells our enemies everything they want to know.
Is this a joke? You are joking right? Please say you know this isn’t the Homeland Security head.
Maybe google gives up gmail without a warrant.
They are. The DOJ Russo dept. of blogging. (fake bloggers, posters, and report-to-dear leader). The guy that used to have a blog for DOJ whistle blowers was shut down immediately after he had a column outing a poster at FR. He/she hasn’t blogged since. The former blogger is probably either in hiding or in jail.
Holder is the operational manager for Obamanation Communism, Worldwide.
Holder uses his FBI to do his bidding. In Benghazi, for example, Holder kept the FBI out of the Benghazi murder location for 24 days.
This was done so that there was enough time for random destruction of evidence of Holder’s Gun, Ammo and Missile running to the various militias in Syria, some of whom were al-Qaeda.
To cover for the CIA torturing of the two Benghazi Militia prisoners, (as documented by Broadwell on Oct 26), Holder’s lawyers crafted a statement stating that the CIA no longer has any prisoner authority, does not have prison camps anymore, and shame on anybody for even suggesting it!
However, Holder’s letter for the CIA did NOT deny that they had been holding and torturing 2 Benghazi Prisoners. Holder just said that the CIA had no authority to do so.
Fortunately for Holder, Tunisia refused to allow Holder’s FBI to talk to one of the Benghazi murder perps.
Time was of the essence as all delays were good delays for Holder.
Thus, the struggle between Holder’s gun-running and Petraeus’ CIA was on a collision course.
Having no allies, Petraeus bent Petticoat Paula’s ear, BENGHAZI-COWARD Obama got re-elected by the 47 %, Holder’s FBI was busy gathering titillation blackmail, and finally Petraeus saw no way out but to quit.
Will Petraeus escape a Breitbart Incident before he testifies?
Will MSNBC’s Crissy Matthews play Petraeus in Michael Moore’s Movie Entitled: How Holder saved America?
Will The Liberal Agenda Media keep their titillation interest going long enough for enough facts to come out for Obama to be IMPEACHED?
I bet Petraeus’ lover has wikileaks connection.
Same thing Hillary was doing when she illegally took 900 FBI files on people.
Maybe that’s why the GOP seems hesitant about calling Hillary to
Lots of overtime hours after the election, no doubt. If they’re against us, they’re on the wrong side. They really should think twice about selling America out for 0bama just to live in a nice house. Their house should seem so trivial in comparison to all our Forefathers and countless thousands of Americans have fought and died for.
Judge Napolitano is right. (I think Hussein is considering the wrong Napolitano for AG.)
From the Patriot Act to NDAA to TSA tracking every bit of travel we do many other measures, we are getting perilously close to a police state. Big Brother is watching you and will do something to you if you disturb him.
Good hunch. Who or whatever it is, they’re in cohorts with 0bama or his handlers. When the SHTF in Benghazi, 0bama sprung the PRESET trap on Petraeus to deflect away from his (0bama’s) lies and abandonment of four Americans. The trap could’ve been used for any CIA op gone bad, anywhere. This honey trap was a ‘get out of jail’ card for 0bama.
Wow...heh, much more than that! There are so many strange and unanswered questions coming out of this that I have lost track of them.
This smacks of a major coverup with security implications along with gun-running, and much worse than the Regan years - just no tapes to review (yet).
Of course only “Republicans” could actually care - Democrats are party folks and could care less.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
Not something that our Media has the sense to report! So either we will not get to the bottom of this because of the Media or we will have to hope for Republican action.
Not holding my breath on either count.
Fox News is reporting on it and that very point was hit on on Pirro’s show last weekend. It just hasn’t penetrated their consciousnesses yet. The point of e-mailing it to all talking heads, Senators and Reps is so that they all know it. If they all know then they know that others know it. Then they know they have to get out in front of it.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Sounds good! Good to know that Fox was on it and not newly reported by the Wash. Post.
Must have missed the reference on Fox. They alone seem to be covering much of this. At least now it can not be covered up. Thanks TigersEye.
We need the press to start asking about that so that House Reps will start asking their witnesses about it. Once the concept takes hold publically there is no excuse and no spin that changes any of those three facts. Panetta is out there trying to create an excuse to get ahead of this but he's making a fool of himself.
Your EXACT statement as posted here on FR will be on the desk of Senator Bob Corker, of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Tuesday morning.
Let us see if it gets "legs".
So bottom line, anyone communicating with Obamav is a suspected terrorist and can be monitored by the government under the patriot act. Obamav was a typo, but I like that spelling. Or how about Obamov? That’s good too.
I have found that it is really hard to e-mail them these days as you have to sign up to their websites and prove you're in their district to do it. Back in 2000 they weren't so exclusionary.
You do sound like you have some inside knowledge here...
If we are waiting for the press to ask the questions, you only have Fox that might pursue the truth here. I do believe the Panetta, and other “top officials” are up to their elbows in this coverup and I believe it will unravel shortly.

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (U.S. Army ret.), former CIA Station Chief Gary Berntsen and former CIA operative Mike Baker.
They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.
Yes sir, you're right.
These days they only want to hear from their constituency. Often they tend to ignore them.
My concern is that there are far too many "posture peons & posers" and few stalwarts who yearn to wield the "terrible swift sword" of justice.
Let us see WHO, or WHAT, Corker is.
Heh, I should have had all of that information but was so depressed after the election that I missed much...
Am also a member of PJMedia so should not have missed that but I did...along with lots of Fox information. Guess it’s time to catch up... Of course watch Fox all the time...
Thanks for the comments... I guess it’s time to get over the election and catch up on what is going on..
Thanks for the reminders - even though that was not your intent.
That's all well and good, but where was the FBI during Bill Clinton's 8 years in office? What background check did he ever pass? It's an absolute joke when we fire Secret Service agents for seeing prostitutes and we tell a patriot like Petraeus he has to go because of one affair, but Bill Clinton can hump any woman he wants (consensual or not), he can pardon terrorists of the FALN, he can take illegal campaign cash from China, he can sign technology waivers for China, etc.
I say RE-HIRE PETRAEUS!
Boris Barackovich Obamov.
There have been news reports indicating that the affair happened after he started working for the CIA. Also, Fox reported that the CIA did its own vetting, not the FBI - which is also a strange thing.
He is white in a the most racist administration ever.
Yep. Petraeus potentially compromised national security for a taste of glory and sex. It has already ruined the rep of a very good soldier and now, apparently is going to widen to include Gen. Allen and, I’d guess, others.
“There have been news reports indicating that the affair happened after he started working for the CIA. Also, Fox reported that the CIA did its own vetting, not the FBI - which is also a strange thing.”
It could be that we have a few unsung heroes in the FBI who are doing yoeman’s duty to get the dirty laundry of the Obama administration out in the open so that the public knows what’s really going on, in spite of massive coverup by the Obama WH, MSM, and Dem Party. It is the FBI that blew the whistle on Petraeus, perhaps to save him from further blackmail by Obama and his henchmen, and to save our country from policy decisions hurtful to it.
The FBI also informed the Pentagon first about the investigation into General John Allen, and his e-mail ties to Mrs. Kelley, the other “other woman” in this whole messy affair. Did the FBI bypass the White House and go straight to the Pentagon to get the latest info out about Allen, or were they prompted by the White House to inform the Pentagon. I doubt the latter, so I wonder what are the real motivations of the FBI, other than to stick it to the CIA. Or perhaps they suspect all sorts of bad stuff is happening over at the CIA. Like Benghazi, and gun running there, and what really happened in Libya.
Or perhaps the FBI is merely another arm now of the White House regime. And within the FBI, if they have become basically White House operatives, are there a brave few leaking info to friendly media in order to try to let us know what is really going on behind the scenes. So much intrigue, so little time. Where’s Brad Thor when you need him?
Constitution-Bill of rights -4th amendment-
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Where was the search warrant required of the FBI in searching Petraeus’s e-mails????
Sounds like Petraeus has a federal case against Obama and the government.This is smut dug up strictly for use as smut, not as evidence.Typical of a fascist like Obama.
Obama is behind this....big time.
The other woman reported the threats to the FBI
define what the threats were?
If I may add one more question to yours:
Is all of this a great distraction to keep any actual reporters from investigating how the Soros Administration stole this election?
If you are head of the CIA you just might be monitored. It’s the National Security stupid.
define what the threats were?
“I’ll scratch your eyes out!”
Next question, Your Honor?
And the Leftists who were up in arms over Boosh snooping into emails shrug their shoulders today and do not criticize the Obamunist in the White Hut. Stalinists lie. Always.
Ohh, I want to... though I think most "conservatives" (read statists) would be terrified of that prospect.
One thing I'd do is use the NDAA to detain, indefinitely, the Supreme Court with the simple phrase that the NDAA is the reason they're being detained... then see how long it takes them to find NDAA unconstitutional. (Same with Kelo, cite it and seize all their owned land; see how long it takes for them to reverse Kelo.)
