Skip to comments.Troubling questions in the Benghazi-Petraeus mess
Posted on 11/13/2012 1:24:39 PM PST by ColdOne
Consider: When Petraeus was nominated for DCI, there were rumors in Afghanistan about the duo and the extent of her access to him, according to well-respected foreign policy expert and Fox News national security analyst K.T. McFarland, who was on the ground there at the time.
Who headed Petraeus background investigation? The first time I had a background check, the FBI asked my neighbors whether I was a good mother. They also asked whether I was a lesbian.
These people are not shy about asking sensitive sex-related questions.

White House, Defense Department, State Department, CIA, FBI, Senate, Congress...
Lots of dirty hands...
By the time this is done, this may make ‘8 Heads in a Duffel Bag’ look tame.
There you go!
The same clown who gave his approval for Barry's U.S. citizenship documentation.
There hasn't been honor in his command for a long long time! What General of honor orders his troops out of armored vehicles onto foot patrol on roads laden with IEDs to further the failed policies of his cowardly boss?!! What General of honor continues to promote failed rules of engagement that affords the enemy every advantage on the battlefield and causes more loss of life and limbs in 4 years than the whole war from the beginning?! What kind of General of honor oversees deal making to release terrorists back onto the battlefield, one of which led this attack on our brave Navy Seals who fought the brute to their deaths?!! No honor here!!
Don't talk to me about the honor of General Petraeus! I hope the last thing that plays in my mind is the sound of his cowardly voice testifying to Congress that he has failed his men and he failed his country because somewhere along the way he lost his honor and his career and ego became more important to him than the safety of his men!
My theory is that if Petraeus had been squeaky clean, he would never have been appointed CIA director. In a sense, it was the dirt that qualified him by giving his overseers a blackmail tool.
When you start telling lies, you have to tell bigger and bigger and bigger lies to cover up.
Even presidents can’t outrun this reality.
My thoughts exactly and something to keep in mind with future appointments.
Poor Republicans never saw it coming, the lambs.
Maybe. Eric Cantor seems to be in the loop before Obama.
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.
(cough)Jon Effin Kerry(cough)
Everything else is noise.
This is about OBAMA.
Real presidential of him, to sacrifice Americans and watch it in real time.
Thank you Barrack Hussein Mohammet Obama.
Interesting observation. Petraeus was never one of Barry's insiders and only a week or so before he was nominated for the CIA, a number of the 0bama regime members, including the 'Beast I believe, referred to him in the NY Slimes as "Gen Betrayus". In that atmosphere I'm not quite sure why he took the job, except perhaps to serve the Country. I don't know that he had any dirt in his background at that time, but I do think that he was "set up" by the regime because 0bama wanted him out and he was lured into this trap. This started before Benghazi, so it could've been initially so the 0bama regime could freely supply arms to our enemies without the CIA getting in the way, and was conveniently already in play when Benghazi went down. I pray he does the honorable thing and comes clean with the full details, facts and who was involved in the Benghazi incident. It could have major repercussions and I'm guessing Barry is chain smoking and getting more than a few gray hairs over it.
America, your suicide bomber is here.
I’ve thought that from the moment he was appointed.
Really...does ANYONE think that Obama would want Petraeus if he DIDN’T have something on him?
Charles Krauthammer was right the other night....because this is about sex it’s now a big story for the media. CK just didn’t bother saying the part about the media’s complicity in the cover up.
Makes me want to puke.
The good man has kissed half of America to sleep with his entitlement agenda. A great investment for him.
AND the returns continue, as we see in his construction of a MB/AlQuaeda north African caliphate. Unsurpassed. How can our great leader do any wrong???
Benghazi? Just a another sideshow in his shock and awe show.
Be wary, wary afraid of what this all means.
Obama saw the ME was smoldering 9/11. He knew if he sent help to Benghazi it would start a full on fire. He sat there and watched until the heroes got most of the people out then were killed. Then he flew off to his party in LV.
My only question is about the “video”. I think the “video” has Obama’s fingerprints on it. Not sure how...but it's all quite the coincidence that Egypt (our new friends in the Mus Bros) “found” the video and became outraged. Come on...it's a dumb video and not nearly as incendiary as some on the web. Something stinks here. I've seen all the rumors—a trade of “Chris” for the Blind Sheik, “Chris” involved in heavy arms trade to AQ in Syria, etc. But, really, that “video” was what the creeps in the WH kept shoving down the world's throat for 2 weeks. WHY?
Oh...and just another coincidence...Just a guy in the neighborhood Ayers and his horrid wife were hanging with Cindy Sheehan in Egypt earlier this year. Small world, huh?
Yes, the implications are staggering and horrifying for those of us who are awake. Jon Effin Traitor for Sec. Def? I want to find a bunker several miles below the surface.
(cough)Jon Effin Kerry(cough)
The mind fairly reels at the prospect of who Obozo might appoint to replace the likes of Holder and Hillary.
And the attempts to cover things start getting sloppy....
Yup, these are the only things that matter, thanks!
Whatever his reasons were facts 1, 2 and 3 can’t be changed by any excuses or spin. 0bama turned his back on them and left them to die without trying to do anything.
Thank you. We have to bring all this mess back to the bottom line every day until Congress and the MSM can’t ignore it any longer. Every discussion should end with it.
Yes they do.
Just saw Feinstein on the tube, and has she ever got a bur under her saddle.

The body of retired Army General and former CIA head David Petraeus was found yesterday in Washingtons C & O canal after it was snagged by a 13 year old boy when he snagged it while fishing.
Petraeus, who had been granted congressional immunity for his testimony on the circumstances surrounding the murder of the 4 Americans at the Benghazi consulate earlier this year, failed to appear at the December 6th hearing.
It was reliably reported that he told key House Intelligence Committee staffers that he was ready to come clean and do the right thing.
Due to the high profile nature of this case, Attorney General Eric Holder has put the FBI in charge of the investigation. The body, found with an estimated 300 pounds of steel weights tied to it with steel cables and over 6 bullet wounds, was sent to the FBI Forensics Lab for examination.
While an expedited full autopsy report is expected in 2 to 3 days, a high level FBI spokesman declared at a press conference that This looks like a clear case of suicide to us.
“All the scripts for the play may already be worked out by Valerie Jarret.”
Hopefully, some of the actors will flub their lines and the show closes.
Yeah, liberals hate to be lied to if they are not in on the lies.
Yeah, I agree.
