David Petraeus says he ´screwed
up royally´ in letter to old Army

New York Post, by Chuck Bennett

Ex-CIA chief David Petraeus took the blame for the extramarital affair that torpedoed his career, but his forgiving wife, Holly, is sticking by him, according to a newly revealed private letter. “I screwed up royally,” Petraeus told his longtime Army pal, retired Brig. Gen. James Shelton in the hand-written missive. “I paid the price (appropriately) and I sought to do the right thing at the end of the day,” he wrote in the Nov. 20 message. Petraeus stepped down on Nov. 9 as news of his affair with biographer Paula Broadwell went public.

Recall him to Active Duty and give him a Courts Martial. Hopefully he will be reduced in rank and sent off to Leavenworth to do some HARD time.

And how is it that General Shelton thinks it is okay to share a private and anguished letter from General Petraeus?

Yup - as previous poster stated, Petraeus is working from a script, and Shelton is playing his role to help out his buddy.

We are being played by the crisis management professionals.

Asking Shelton to be his mouthpiece is not the sign of a brave man. Just another whiner who had it all and thought he was above reproach. Wonder what blackmail he has on Shelton for Shelton to parrot the kind words and the ATW?

...and Petraeus is being disingenuous with his "paid the price (appropriately). He´s playing this as his resignation being the big punishment. What would he have done to a subordinate who jeapordized national security by whoring around on his wife and lettinging his squeeze see classified documents she wasn´t cleared for. How about finding them on her unclassified personal computer?

Petraeus makes Private Bradley Manning look like Soldier of the Year. They have Manning in a cell sleeping on a metal cot without clothes. Stepping down from the Director of the CIA position is "punishment" for what he has done ot national security?

You wish, General Betray-us.

Petraeus will be considered "paid in full" when he comes forward and speaks the truth, the WHOLE truth to the American people.
We have the right to know exactly how incompetent the administration was in the Benghazi incident.
He OWES that much to America.

Understatement, his fall is tragic...an absolutely brilliant career thrown out the window because he got weak-kneed when a pretty girl gave him a glance.

I am sorry, I just cannot find it in my heart to condemn this good man. I hope he moves on and finds some other way to serve our great country. I suspect his wife will forgive him and that he will spend the rest of his life making their marriage a priority. Forgiveness is really much harder than than judgement and punishment.

Gotta love double standards, #13.

Some us live in reality and don´t predict fairy tale endings. His dowdy, unattractive, fat little wife has no choice but to forgive him. The poor gal suffered and sacrificed through is military career, and finds herself in her golden years with a national traitor and cheater for a spouse.

What´s she going to do? If she walks, she gets nothing. Forgiving is expedient.

He can make his marriage ´a priority´ all he wants now, but every time he goes alone to the grocery store, she´ll have thoughts of him shagging the checkout girl while she sits at home waiting. The marriage as they know it is over. In addition, he sold out the country and its secrets as well as his marriage vows for his fling with Ms Fitness.

Most guys just throw away family money on their back door women. He threw away his country and his entire career as well as his honor.

Interesting historical bit, his wife was the daughter of the Commandant when he was at West Point.

Social climbing much?

Don´t waste your time crying for Petraeus, as because of the double standard that is in place throughout the USA, after he spends a time in political purgatory, Petraeus will again land on his feet in a new job that most Americans of high moral character can only wish for!

Tell us the whole absolute truth about Benghazi, General Petraeus. That will suffice.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

   

 



 
Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,
hands Putin a propaganda coup
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/18/2014 7:28:50 AM     Post Reply
What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over
the problem with more money

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
