Petraeus Resigns Over Affair….

By 57 Comments 1,301 views

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?

Ralph Peters:

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.

Curt served in the Marine Corps for four years and has been a law enforcement officer in Los Angeles for the last 24 years.

    @retire05: #43,

    “He never has revealed how he managed to pay for them”

    Hard summary to argue with, and though I’m sure you’ve seen this interview, it is one which Axelrod and Co. did an excelent job of eradicating from the MSM consciousness, . . . . INTERVIEW WITH PERCY SUTTON or . . . . . here

    They accused this poor guy of being too old to remember anything accurately. . . . . . . Nice folks that Jarrett/Axelrod crowd.

    @James Raider:

    I am quite aware of Percy Sutton. He was one of the most brilliant men I have ever met. Not to mention, that he, at least when I met him, was the epitome of a Southern gentleman. He was already quite old when I met him, but sharp as a razor’s edge.

    His family argued that he was not mentally tilted when he gave that interview and also said that the person who claimed to have spoken for Sutton was unknown to the Sutton family. For Axelrod and Jarrett to try to slander a man who did so much for civil rights, much like they did Bartle Bull who was so dedicated to the civil rights issue, should be criminal. It just proves that Democrats are the Guppy Party; they are more than willing to eat their own for political expediency.

    I stand corrected, Skook. The breadth of your knowledge continues to impress me. However, I would wager that you’re very much in a very small minority of citizens who knew anything about these people. I think even fewer would find it plausible that fringe characters such as these could put an empty vessel in the White House.

    @Tom: Tom, your arrogance is tiring. The people Skook was talking about are well known to many conservative people, we are not as stupid as you would like to believe. Many of us remember the surprise we felt when Ayers got released on a technicality. Many off us knew who Frank Marshal Davis was long before Obama arrived. Your assumption that a very small number of people knew those names is wrong, period. And to make that assumption again displays the arrogance of the liberal mind… we don’t think like you do, therefore we ain’t as smart… right?
    And those fringe characters didn’t singlehandedly put O in the White House, but they all made a contribution or were influential to O’s character formation.

    With all of the other rotten smells in Washington DC, how would you smell a new one? This one must stink more than the others.

    No, Scott. You can’t find the reason you believe I look down on you within me. I suggest looking closer to home.

    to spy on the CIA, and provide info directly to him,
    is it possible? yes it is, IF I think it is,
