Skip to comments.Now in Story Development: Petraeus Ran Rogue Operation in Libya.
Posted on 11/13/2012 12:42:12 PM PST by Kenny Bunk
As the thoroughly unbelievable saga spins its merry way across the MSM, IMHO the stage may be being set by the administration for a thoroughly implausible case for "plausible deniability" for Obama.
I predict that Petraeus will be accused of running a rogue CIA operation in Libya about which the President, as carefully explained by dementia patient Joe Biden, knew nothing.
Interesting clues: Broadwell's co-author on the bio is a WaPo reporter. Says "he had no clue..." What he probably does have is WH connections. The Tampa "socialite" Broadwell allegedly harrassed turns out to be absolutely dead broke and living in a foreclosed McMansion. Just who the hell is Broadwell, BTW?
The truth? The POTUS doubtless saw the Benghazi Massacre unfolding live in the situation room and went to bed instead of into action. An A-10 flight could have been on scene in under an hour from Sigonella AF Base in Sicily. An armed drone was already on the scene.
Petraeus' story would make u-no-hoo look very bad. He had to go. The admin had this year-old-affair in the bag and ready to go when needed.
Where did the Youtube Documentary Story come from?
Who ordered the resue team to "stand down?"
Is it possible that the guy who knew "nothing" was Petraeus?
No furking way Petraeus could have started that. He wasn’t there long enough. But they certainly could try to pin it on him.
The question is can the White House order Petraeus not to testify on the grounds of national security? If yes, could he still be forced to testify in a closed session of the House Intelligence Committee? And if he does testify in this manner, will the true story just be buried by cowardly House Republicans?
Curiouser and curiouser. Stock up on popcorn (and other food items, and ammo).
People need to be very careful about any reporting on this story that comes from NY TIMES, AP, CBS, ABC, CNN or anyone in Chicago.
There are no reliable journalists to investigate and report the facts. Only propaganda apparatus. Maybe Fox News. But they have BOR and Dick Morris and karl Rove on their channel.
we are screwed.
I think this is possible.
The MSM tried to hush all mention of Benghazi prior to the election. Now we’re getting wall-to-wall coverage of the affair. Very curious.
Do you have a link or is this just a personal prediction?
The answer is no to that. If it is deemed a security risk they can do it behind closed doors, although I doubt the GOP led house would allow that.
Here is the deal. Gaddafi had WMDs we didn't know about and after the war started, we lost track of them. Now we have Libyan Al Qaeda fighting in Syria.
There is also a theory out there that we were sending chem weapons from Libya to Turkey to be used against the extreme elements in the Syrian rebellion in order to blame Assad for the attack to justify Western intervention.
I predict a blockbuster movie in the making. Sex, spies, intrigue, double agents, double crosses, blackmail, sex crazed, power crazed generals, war, terrorism, death, blood, guts, gore, treason, power crazed presidents, impeachment, rebellion, villains, heroes. It’s all there.
Go higher in the chain. Try Clapper in the White House.
THA DIVERSE PREZ:
“Bush did it..!” —> “Petraeus did it...!”
Change? Sure..! Just change ONE WORD..!
A steamy tale of sex and adultery that leads to someone named Clapper....now THAT’S funny!
LOL I think you hit on something there, Jim!
That would get me in a movie theater.
I believe that Petreus was going to talk about what he found going on when he was given the CIA post... and some others may be trying to come to his defense, and they’re being systematically destroyed.
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.
“People need to be very careful about any reporting on this story that comes from NY TIMES, AP, CBS, ABC, CNN or anyone in Chicago.

Yes. Nothing can be believed.
They conflate and completely make things up like the youtube video story.
Please see posts #s 13 and 14.
I think this is going to unravel quickly. If Petraeus is the man he appears to be, we’ll hear the truth. Gun running to the Syrian Rebels or whatever? It will come out.
The main question I want to know is:
Did Obama fail to send aid to Benghazi when the raid developed and our men asked for help? And if so, why? The man in the WH is a coward. There is no way he will send brave men and women into battle if there is a risk of failure. Keep in mind that he didn’t even order the killing of the Pirates and had his people on the way to stop the confrontation.
All talk of the clap aside, Clapper is the one who told Petraeus he should resign. You know, there has never been a CIA director who had an affair or even multiple affairs. /s
