Gotta agree with Krauthammer here, maybe the fact that there is a sex scandal might motivate some news organizations to do their damn job instead of protecting their golden child:
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: The other thing I would add, which is what Bolton said. I think he’s absolutely right. There is no way that this is going to get in the way of the Benghazi story coming out, and in an odd way, and sort of a discouraging way, now that the story is attached to a sex scandal, it will become a story that will be pursued by the media as were not pursued before. They were holding off I think to protect Obama before and also perhaps out of a lack of interest. But just given the nature of our journalism, it will now become the hottest story around, and you can be sure that even the mainstream papers which did not show any interest whatsoever in this story up to and into the election are going to get on it now and it will become, it will unravel.
And I tell you what, Petraeus better be testifying. This resignation doesn’t get him out of that and if he refuses supboena’s better be issued.
One question, who leaked this affair?
Peters, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, said on Fox News that just as the administration initially called the assault on the Benghazi consulate on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks “purely coincidence,” it’s again “purely coincidence” for the affair to surface after the election but before Petraeus went to Capitol Hill for questioning about Benghazi. CIA Acting Director Michael Morell will now testify instead of Petraeus.
“As an old intelligence analyst, the way I read this — and I could be totally wrong, this is my interpretation — is that the administration was unhappy with Petraeus not playing ball 100 percent on their party line story,” Peters said. “I think he was getting cold feet about testifying under oath about their party line story, and I suspect that these tough Chicago guys knew of this affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card.”
He added, “Right after the election and right before Petraeus is supposed to get grilled on Capitol Hill, it just really smells.”
He better be brought in to testify.
