CIA Director Petraeus Resigns Over 'Affair'
by Ben Shapiro 9 Nov 2012, 12:30 PM PDT 1190 post a comment

Just two days after President Obama’s re-election, General David Petraeus, the CIA Director, has resigned from the administration over an extramarital affair. Petraeus was slated to testify before Congress next week on the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya. Bret Baier of Fox News just tweeted, "With Petraeus’ resignation effective immediately, he will not testify next week & lawmakers are said to be 'stunned' by the announcement."

Perfect timing, huh?

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters: Timing of Petraeus ‘Affair’ wreaks of Chicago-style politics

by Shoebat Foundation on NOVEMBER 10, 2012 in BLOG, GENERAL

During an interview with Neil Cavuto, retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters chimed in on the timing of the news of CIA Director David Petraeus’ extra-marital affair. Citing his experience as an intelligence analyst, Peters seems to think that the Obama administration has likely known about this affair for some time but revealed it less than a week before Petraeus was due to testify under oath about Benghazi.

Though he qualifies his take by saying he could be wrong and that he’s not a conspiracy theorist, Peters thinks that Petraeus might have begun showing reticence to ‘play ball’ with the administration.

Possible?



Yeah, the timing is very interesting.

His resigning will not make him immune from having to testify. He can be made to take the stand and answer questions about anything he did during his time as CIA director.



Really? This will be interesting, because I was told the opposite by some friends in D.C.




Now that General Petraeus has resigned his position as the Director of the CIA, it was announced later today that he will not, indeed, be called to testify next week at this hearing.

I do believe if once checks history, they will find more then one general who spoke out against his commander, or disagreed with them somehow ended up being relieved of their duties, I knew Westmoreland...he did not see things the same way LBJ did....I also knew his replacement Gen. Abrams....both were very good leaders and men. This may very well be a bigger issue then what Joe Public needs to know, at this time.

Hmm....2 down.


There were a few other distinguished military men who were "relieved of their duty" for refusing to stand down during the Bengazi attack, too. The military doesn't seem to like what O did there.

Yes, General Carter Ham, Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette, and now General David Petraus.
That's a whole lot of stars to fall in the last 8 weeks.

If he is called to testify or if anyone from the military who is in the know, is called to testify and the adminstration seeks to block their appearance at the hearing, we will then know that Petraeus' resignation and evading testimony at the hearing was not coincidental and that this was timed to avoid him having to appear.

Apparently the timing isn't "optimal" for the State Department to attend this scanty little hearing either.

I find the timing of the whole thing suspect, but that's just me. :)

Now it's 3 down.

Hillary has an emergency visit to a friend in Australia and won't be able to testify either.

Petraeus is now the center of a sex scandal. That is why he resigned.


Ugh! Why do so many men in positions of power do this? It's like they think THEY'RE the one who won't get caught. :29:

I'm not sure why we're surprised by this; I mean, how many times has it happened now?

Being a former U.S. ASA officer, I'm surprised, that a lot of this personal stuff was recorded in e-mails. These men were all around during water gate, they know that whatever they write in an e-mail is not secured. No gaps in the tapes.....well maybe some were not around then...it has been awhile...as far as the sex part goes men and women have been doing it for years and the Oval Office has a few cases concerning inappropriate behavior of staff members in it as memory recalls....

Im just sayin, a certain president a few years back got away with it somehow, and he didnt have to step down. . .
