Skip to comments.Glenn Beck Breaks Down Petraeus Scandal: ‘What Are the Odds?’
Posted on 11/13/2012 6:30:20 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
During Tuesdays broadcast, Glenn Beck delved into the developing sex scandal involving David Petraeus, former director of the CIA. The former four-star general resigned his CIA post last week after acknowledging an extramarital affair.
However, the timing of his resignation just days before he was scheduled to testify before Congress about the Benghazi terrorist attack seems a little too coincidental, Beck explained.
Petraeus was set to be the key witness in the Benghazi testimony this week, he said. But wouldnt you know it, the FBI accidentally stumbled upon some private emails and determined that he was having an affair.
What are the odds?
Watch Beck break down the scandal via TheBlazeTV here:

This scandal is the knife edge for Obamugabe to slice the military and Intel agencies apart, and under his complete control through trusted henchmen. We are witnessing a soft coup...............
And its gotten even more bizarre since then with the news of the investigation of General Allen and the possibility that the White House is looking at Mike Rogers (R) to head the CIA.
I’ve got 5 hours of The View on DVR that I need to catch up on. I’ll get to this whole Ben Gazarra run for your life thing later.... maybe.
“We are witnessing a soft coup...............”
MORE POPCORN! This is not over! It might not even be over when it is over! ;-)
Keep in mind that the ex husband of the twin is a Bush appointee
“hey, baby, I got your Surge right here...”
In all seriousness.....
Obama is going to attempt to pin the Benghazi failure on his spooks. Spooks absolutely DETEST being thrown under the bus. And they are not shy about seeking revenge on their bosses (see: Valerie Plame). This is a pre-emptive shot across the bow from Obama that “you try this, and I’ll get you and your little dog too”.
That happened 4 years ago. This is just part of the spillover. More to come. Much more.
Other than the feckless cowardice of a John Boehner or Mitch McConnell?
OK. I just answered the question.
Even the enemedia is going to have a hard time selling the notion that a man who can't control his own dick can't be trusted to give testimony after what they did for Bill Clinton.
The Chicago Mob controls the DOJ. It’s been an ongoing process since Bill Clinton asked for the resignation of all uS Attorneys.
I think Obama may be stepping on some very dangerous toes.
We are witnessing a soft coup...............
Could you explain this in a little more detail??
I saw that. If he is smart, he will not take that job.
O boy I agree and no one can see that he is purging out all the NO men and replace them with YES men - his HENCHMEN. Now who in the past leaders in the world did that?
“We are witnessing a soft coup”
Exactly!!! I notice this pattern. I cannot believe my eyes that I am witnessing all this before seeing the destruction of this once great nation.
If Rogers really is on the short list to head the CIA, I think its a sign of desperation from the White House. Rogers has been pretty aggressive in pursuit of the truth in this matter and I have a hard time seeing it as anything more than a bribe.
He’d be a good man to have in that position but not till this is all cleared up.
I recall this little historical nugget: The BlombergFritsch Affair were two related scandals in early 1938 that resulted in the subjugation of the German Armed Forces (Wehrmacht) to dictator Adolf Hitler. Hitler had been dissatisfied with these two highest-ranking military officials and regarded them as too hesitant towards the war preparations he demanded. Numerous other generals were moved about. Most important, Hitler took personal command of the armed forces through the new Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW) using General Wilhelm Keitel as his subservient aide.
Interesting and something to watch for. Thanks.
There is nothing left but details...........
In 2009 Petraeus was treated for prostate cancer. Without a prostate, it’s difficult for a man to function sexually. Surprised no one has mentioned this. Yet another twist on a strange story.
I’m afraid you’re right. We’re also so engaged in this new scandal that the scandals of voter fraud fail to make it even into the back pages.
That’s not a ‘little historical nugget’....that’s a blueprint...............
Actually I mentioned it here, with a snark:
It’s never the top officers that are dangerous, it’s the junior officers..............
Yes...but it is not clear at this point that Obama is driving it.
I hope Petreaus writes everything down and puts it on the web. Folks should know the truth.
Just a coincidence that since the embassy attack the CO of AFRICOM is relieved, the CO of the carrier strike group in the Middle East is relieved and the CIA director’s resignation is requested? I’d like to see Beck put this on the chalk board.
The book about it is titled, “The Night of the Long Knives”.
Chicago thugs versus the Intelligence Community. The Bamster and company have no clue about the territory they are entering.
Does seem odd that several top military leaders are being purged now. Wonder where this will lead to?
Agreed. The CIA likely has all the goods on Obama. It takes just one Mitch Rapp to bring the house of cards down. Spooks are not to be taken lightly - or advantage of.
To add, its very apparent that once Petraeus was promoted by Obama, he became a mouth piece for the master himself. Petraeus has been nothing more than an administration puppet since that time, which make me believe he was set up from the get go.
“In 2009 Petraeus was treated for prostate cancer. Without a prostate, its difficult for a man to function sexually. Surprised no one has mentioned this. Yet another twist on a strange story.”
I’ve questioned it numerous times. The nature of the extramarital affair could have been a non-sexual “romantic friendship.”
“The book about it is titled, The Night of the Long Knives.”
I thought the “Night of the Long Knives” was when Hitler had the SS round up and execute Ernst Rohm and the leaders of the SA.
Wasn’t the SS not even part of the Wermacht back then?
remember maggief there is more to the issue of sex- Clinton I never had sex with that woman. it may be suspect that there is more than just a roll in the hay. he may have received a extra incentive in light of surgical procedures - implants and other issues - that allowed other aspects to be more pronounced. Not mean to be disgusting but there are many males that get a penile implant. Belief that their manhood is within the size of the appendage.
“I think Obama may be stepping on some very dangerous toes.”
Seven Days in May?
Valerie Jarrett put out a general warning days before the election. Implementation has started at the top. Who knows how far it will go.
My apologies for violating the "make no mistake on FR" rule.
