CIA Director Petraeus
Resigns Over 'Affair'

Breitbart's Big Peace, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/9/2012 8:53:22 PM

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." He sent a letter to his colleagues stating: Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House

Lots of comments on the other story; but one can only ask "Coincidence five days before testifying?"

Me thinks he was going to hang Barry out to dry.

Am I missing something? I don't see why this should make one whit of difference as to whether he should be compelled to testify. Of course at this point we should be afraid of what we wish for. He could have been so compromised that he has gone totally over to the "other side." In any event, he certainly should stay away from Fort Marcy.

Some posters wonder how to threaten a 4-star who is a Ranger and has seen combat.

1. You fire gum from his civil-service CIA job without a pension.

2. You threaten to stop his 4-star retirement income.

3. You tell him it will cost him millions and millions in defense attorney costs.

Get the picture.

Even if he testifies he can say that without any records in his hands everything is hearsay. And he can't trust his memory.

The alleged bimbo wrote a book about him. You know plenty of security people have seen them together.

Axelrod and Clinton at work.

FTA: ''This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation.''

All one has to do is look into 0bama's cold eyes to know that this isn't true. When the head of the CIA, involved intimately with the death of four men ''on his personal watch,'' resigns the Friday before testimony on Capitol Hill, he's truly trying to hide something. 0bama, as much as Hillary, also share the blood on their soulless hands for the murder of Ambassador Stevens & the three men with him.

As I said before, even Petraeus, as a former General has got to know that troops will not fight ''well'' in any battle if they sense weakness in their officer staff that leads or their partners in a foxhole. Obviously, the individual fighting man will never leave a man behind, just the dRATS Party that currently puts them in Harm's Way. [Or let them vote].

Gosh. one of only about eight generals who endorsed Obama is quiting his job because he cheated on his wife. Perhaps a Secret Service job has opened.

On the flip side, I haven't heard any bad things about the 200 or so generals and such who endorsed Romney. I've always thought Petraeus was overated.

JOhn Boehner is the next President of the United States. When this all comes out and it is found that Obamawho the head of the CIA reports to, told Petraeus to lie at the upcoming hearings or his affair would be exposed, Petraeus resigned. The administration has known for months about the affair and kept it quiet. An impeachable offense. Biden had to know as well as Clinton and Panetta. Order of succession is VP and then Speaker of the House. Obama gone. Biden gone. God may be on our side yet.

Not a bad idea for Petraeus to resign. If you were Zer0´s general, you would find a way out if you didn´t want to help a tyrant do more harm to the homeland and make politically expedient military decisions that butchered your troops.

Like Hitler, this megalomaniac thinks he can out-general his generals. He´s nothing more than a Norman Dike in charge of the whole US armed forces.

Was Petraus under oath when he already testified before the committee in closed door session that the Video was the cause for the Benghazi situatio? After that meeting was when the statement that the CIA did Not deny additional security to Benghazi or fail to send aid on 9-11.

Dieane Feinstein has the power to call, or not, petraeus to testify. I don´t think I have to tell you how THAT will turn out.
The biographer claims she researched petraeus for three years for her dissertation and then was allowed to be in afghanistan with him for an extended period. James Bond where are you when we need you?
Debka claims she was caught trying to access petraeus´ emails and that caused concern with the fbi. Recently a secret service guy committed suicide because he was having an affair with a foreign entity. Wonder what broadwell´s background is? So much good conspiracy stuff.

Interesting. Bill Clinton had an affair in the White House, with an intern the Secret Service knew was "servicing" him. Why didn´t he resign? Hmmm... integrity? But then again, how many people who ran for President and was elected and re-elected had several rape charges against them over the years and is still loved by the liberal masses?

About an affair that must have been known for at least two years? He´s had several security checks during that time. And now he´s afraid these thugs might tell his wife? Bah, humbug, BS.

His life or his family was threatened, there´s a far more sinister secret or he has something to tell that DiFi isn´t willing to let him bring up. He´s going to be the fall guy no matter. Maybe this is the only way to set the record straight.

Perhaps silence from General Petraeus will be the loudest testimony of all.

I agree with the #2 post. Since when does one´s ´release´ from employment protect that person from giving testimony about crimes which were committed under his watch?
.... Think Penn State.

Breitbart´s Big Piece indeed.

Actually, the fact this is now about sex will totally divert attention from Obama. Everyone will be on hyperdrive looking for ever more salacious details about the general and the babelicious JILF. The previously incurious MSM will seek out every Who, What, When, Where, and How about this embed. Obama could walk through carrying a sign saying "Yes, I lied", and no one would notice. The guy, so far, is leading a charmed life. First Sandy, now this.

The reason BO offered the CIA job to Petraeus was to get him out of the 2012 presidential race, whether as a vastly popular candidate or a powerful supporter of the Stupid Party candidate. Now that the 2012 race is over, Petraeus becomes disposable. Having an honest guy like Petraeus around is anathema to the genetically corrupt BO regime. Even without Benghazi, Petraeus would have been elbowed out. The Benghazi hearings merely settled the timing, that´s all.

Okay I´m confused. It was okay for Clinton to have sex all over the White House with any woman within reach. It was cute. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. The bimbo eruptions were humorous and endearing, right? What a scalawag ole Billy was. So I´m not sure why one man having one affair has to resign? Is he the only one in the military or in Washington or in the CIA who has had an affair? I didn´t think so.

After the rampage attack on 911 in Bengazi, you know that when Princeton Petraeus went to bed his wife wispered in his ear "honey, you´re going to be smeared by Obama for this fiasco in Libya one way or the other!"

Petraeus knows the truth about that event, plain and simple. He is a career military officer who has had "victor" stenciled on his uniform. He would know what an affair could cost him. He would know who would want that information to use against him.

We will see how he responds, both as a husband, as a former director of the CIA, and as a soldier.

When will, or are they now coming out, the long knives for Obama-Mao?

Recall how his daddy fared in Kenya trying to sell his economic beliefs, etc. Will Obama be self-destructing right before our very eyes...shortly?

I say yes he will!

These liberal Generals have to know their place. Remembering ValJar ordering a decorated officer to fetch her a drink refill at a WH party?
When McChrytle got too much press for requesting additional troops, the O gang found his Achilles heel (apparently it was knocking them back with the guys). With Petraeus, the Achilles heel had long been embedded. His statement absolving the CIA in the Benghazi murders led to his post-election "resignation." I assume there are sex tapes or perhaps free-spending behavior with the hottie to keep Petraeus under the thumb of the CIC.

There is no sex, just talk about it. Email fantasies. The stories say they never hooked up, and broke off the chit chat shortly after his appointment to the CIA.

She was installed or informed, but one way or the other,something isn´t right about it. If she is FBI herself, it stands to reason she never had to compromise herself with physical contact, just documented email contacts.

He was threated with being outted. He outed himself.

Okay, I´ll join the speculation party. Petraeus loves his country and, as it naturally follows, wanted Obama out before he destroys everything. When Benghazi broke, Petraeus got a visit from one of the Chicago folks and was threatened with blackmail about his affair if he told the truth about the regime´s cover-up. Petraeus hoped the electorate would take care of Obama, but when that didn´t happen, he chose to resign, confess, and free himself to expose this scandal. Sounds plausible, but we should find out shortly if this scenario is pure fantasy. I´m not holding my breath. Heroes are in short supply these days.

Petraeus did not resign over extramarital affair. Why resign over an affair that ended more than a year ago. The key is proximity to testifying about what he knew about Obama and the murders in Benghazi. The corruption from the administration is only going to get worse and more blatant.

This guy knows how accidents occur. He´s spooked about his family receiving the "Chicago Treatment". Don´t think he´s that concerned about his own reputation any longer.

Wish I could just flip to the last chapter to find out how this story ends...

Too many plots and twists... the suspense is killing me.

I will say this about Petraeus... the timing is fishy.

My speculation is Obama is arming the Islamic rebels in Libya, to filter into the Muslim Brotherhood Egypt. All in the attempts to wipe Israel off the map.

ValJar will keep Obama in plenty of mood enhancing drugs to self destruct. Sorry. wont happen.

Why is this NYT´s 7/12 piece being released? are we talking blackmail...this was well after the affair in Afganistan 2010-2011

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07...

FTA

MY WIFE’S LOVER

My wife is having an affair with a government executive. His role is to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership. (This might seem hyperbolic, but it is not an exaggeration.) I have met with him on several occasions, and he has been gracious. (I doubt if he is aware of my knowledge.) I have watched the affair intensify over the last year, and I have also benefited from his generosity. He is engaged in work that I am passionate about and is absolutely the right person for the job. I strongly feel that exposing the affair will create a major distraction that would adversely impact...

The fact that you’re willing to accept your wife’s infidelity for some greater political good is beyond honorable. In fact, it’s so over-the-top honorable that I’m not sure I believe your motives are real. Part of me wonders why you’re even posing this question, particularly in a column that is printed in The New York Times.

...Do you admire this man so much that you haven’t asked your wife why she keeps having sex with him? I halfway suspect you’re writing this letter because you want specific people to read this column and deduce who is involved and what’s really going on behind closed doors (without actually addressing the conflict in person). That’s not ethical, either.

What do you expect from demokrats.

Petraeus running from Benghazi is hardly stuff from which heroes are made.

And don´t get me started with the ethics/morality challenged (b)witch at the center of all this.

Cowards all, including Bow-Boy, always include Bow-Boy, never forget this birth certificate challenged, lying socialist/amateur communist and his Hollywood "psychophants". By the way, I suggest taxing all Hollywood "stars", starting with Bwa-Bwa Stris-idiot and David Letterstooge and the rest, 95 percent of their income to help pay down the debt. Let´s see how they like Bow-Boy after that.

This is just the beginning. Petraeus screwed up having the affair, but Obama screwed up trying to blackmail him so he would lie about Benghazi in front of the committee. Trying to blackmail a man that would die for his country with an affair was a gross miscalculation by Obama. Petraeus will deal whatever the consequences are with his marriage no matter how it falls, but for love of country he will spill the beans on Obama.
Like many others here I have been very depressed about Romney losing the election, but with Petraeus´ resignation it has hit me that things happen for reason. If this Benghazi investigation goes where it should go, Obama and the Democreats can be severly damaged. If Obama had lost much of this would have been forgotten. But if it is proven and reported to the American people what Obama did, Obama and the Democrats can be severly damaged for a long time. I just have a feeling this may worked out for the best for our country long term.

Bass man, I pray you are correct..but not unless people are familiar with the NYT´s letter and the timeline of the affair and the 7/12 appearance of the NYT´s letter and. Obama ´ s mention of Pertaeus and Romney in 8/12....

God works in strange ways....and like our founders..."In God is Our Trust".... My dear departed mother added...God helps those that help themselves...so we need to post, and call and demand answers until we´ve bypassed the MSM and reached Stauration on Benghazi and what Petraeus knows

Sorry for the double post, but in the end this has nothing to do any letters to the NYT or Petraeus´ affair. This is about Benghazi!! The affair and how it unraveled is only the catalyst to exposing what happened before, during, and after the Benghazi attack. Obama tried to blackmail Petraeus into lieing and it will backfire. The details about the affair mean nothing other than the press will be reporting it and it will lead to them reporting on Benghazi. Ultimately I think the House will impeach Obama. The Dems in the Senate will be faced with either impeaching him or defending him. Either one will not be good for the Dems, but it will be good for America. God works in mysterious ways. Sandra left Obama in office only so he may be brought down in a way the whole world can see.

This is all turning into a maze of lies and diversions. It would not surprise me one bit if Paula was put up to seducing Petraeus just so the admin could have something to hold over him. He was away from home and thinking with his other brain, so it was easy. Something is really wrong here and smells very bad. And the timing is so blatantly laughable, they really think we´re stupid. No, they don´t, it´s that they know they can and will get away with anything. The media will stick with Obama no matter what, and anything the Republicans say will be used against them, not Obama.

The FBI is Johnny on the spot when it comes to taking down a fellow-American, but can´t accomplish anything when it comes to our safety or the safety of our ambassadors.

I am sure Obama set Petraeous up. He hired him to get him out of running against him and used his patriotism to prove he was unbiased, but then double-crossed him. What´s new.

Oh, Obama is having a day on the golf course. Back to the old ways!

America has allowed a good man to be destroyed (Romney) by a Chicago-thug who knows how to raise havoc and cause disharmony. His new banner is Revenge. Hope served its purpose last time and many fell for his words of bringing US together. How has that worked out? There is more racism today and more class warfare, all caused by the man in the White House.

Pray for America! Only God can deliver US from the evil that has prevailed through these past years and will continue unless we bend our knees and submit to the Word that sets men free - Jesus!

#2 is correct. Petraeus resignation should have nothing to do about not having him testify. He was in charge of the CIA during the Benghazi attack. Using this as an excuse for not testifying stinks of a coverup!

When Petraeus said the Libya incident was as a result of the film ..I thought oh my...Roberts & Petraeus both have the DC fever... When McCain & the others came out of the meeting they were all shocked with Petraeus´s statements. My guess is Petraeus will not spill the beans. Powell will take his job.

I think Petraeus was set up by this administration. Remember when he was referred to as David Betray-us? Remember when he was no friend of this administration? Then he is appointed the director of the CIA? And a good looking woman decides to write an autobiography of him and has an affair with him? Then he resigns a couple of days before he´s to testify before congress?

I believe she was a plant to ruin him, destroy his credibility and silence him forever. I wonder how much this woman was paid?

This letter to the NYT relating to the writer´s supposed spouse having an affair with a high level government official is bogus, in the respect that it was not an aggrieved spouse who sent the letter to the NYT, as men don´t do such things.

So if that letter was actually sent to the NWT by anyone connected to the affair in question, it is safe to bet that the letter was authored and sent to the NYT by the lady who was involved in the affair, and not her spouse.

I don´t care who or what he was screwing--what I want to know is what did he know about Benghazi and when did he know it.

His wife can have the delicious task of sorting out where his private parts have been lately.

I hope she has a good attorney.

It’s a big weekend for the Bush family, which is enjoying a renaissance of sorts after several years in the political wilderness. Throngs of former administration officials, members of Congress and others descended Friday on College Station, Tex., to fete former president George H.W. Bush on the 25th anniversary of his arrival in office. One of the highlights of the weekend will be a live interview with his son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who has quietly been exploring a 2016 presidential campaign. About 180 miles to the north, former president George W. Bush is hosting an event of a

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

Oregon State University, disdaining responsibility for trashing distribution boxes that were intended for a politically conservative student newspaper, has still paid $1,000 plus $100,000 in legal fees after a former student, William Rogers, filed suit against them. The lawsuit, filed in 2009 by supporters of the newspaper The Liberty, contended that the university president and other school officials permitted the official campus newspaper access to distribution bins, but school officials removed the bins for The Liberty. The suit alleged that school officials confiscated distribution bins for The Liberty and tossed them onto a trash heap. The bins, which contained copies

House Republicans have scheduled a vote next week to hold Lois G. Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about her role in the Internal Revenue Service’s tea party targeting scandal, setting up a major battle over constitutional rights versus Congress‘ ability to oversee the government. Rep. Darrell E. Issa, the House’s top investigator, said Thursday that as a senior official at the center of the IRS targeting, Ms. Lerner will either talk or face penalties for refusing to help the committee get to the bottom of who orchestrated the targeting and what the motives were. “Ms. Lerner’s

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

When his aides get discouraged about the prospects for Middle East peace, Secretary of State John F. Kerry often bucks them up with a phrase: “Don’t be afraid to be caught trying.” But as his tireless efforts to broker Israeli-Palestinian negotiations hit bottom Thursday, with Israel’s cancellation of prisoner releases that were considered crucial to keeping the talks alive, there are some around Kerry — including on his senior staff and inside the White House — who believe the time is approaching for him to say, “Enough.” Kerry risks being seen as trying too hard at the expense of a

The American left is outraged that the Supreme Court has voted 5 to 4 that limits to the aggregate amount of donations to federal campaigns have been found unconstitutional. Prior to the ruling, there was a 123,200 limit ($48,600 for candidates and $74,600 in contributions to PACs) on the total amount a single donor could contribute in a two year federal campaign cycle. The ruling did not affect the existing $2,600 limit on the maximum donation to any Congressional campaign. As you might have already guessed, Harry Reid had the most predictable reaction, invoking the Koch Brothers. “The Supreme Court today

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trying to put Obamacare’s problems behind him, President Obama renewed his election-year push for an increase in the minimum wage Wednesday and the White House urged fellow Democrats to latch on to the issue for their own political gain. Speaking at the University of Michigan, the president again fiercely advocated for a rise in the nation’s minimum wage, trying to keep the issue front and center as the November midterm elections creep closer. “In America, we don’t believe in opportunity for a few — we believe that everybody should have a chance at success,” Mr. Obama

Compromise on smaller minimum

President Obama campaigned in Michigan with Dem Senate candidate Gary Peters, making the case for a hike in the federal minimum wage to $10.10. Unfortunately, the wrangling in the Senate today suggests the idea is going to die. Senator Susan Collins has said she’s trying to craft a bipartisan compromise on the minimum wage that could win Republican support — a compromise that would require hiking the minimum wage to an unspecified point below the $10.10 per hour that Obama and Democrats want. Today Harry Reid ruled out the idea, insisting that Dems won’t agree to anything below $10.10. In

THE SUPREME Court on Wednesday overturned yet another federal law meant to check corruption and influence-peddling in national politics. The ruling shows two things: The Roberts Court’s destructive view on these matters wasn’t changed by the backlash to its Citizens United holding, and Congress must respond by designing new rules that can pass the court’s overly skeptical review. If lawmakers tackle the issue forthrightly, they have some workable options. The court eliminated an overall limit on how much donors could give to candidates, parties and various other committees over the course of an election cycle. The idea had been to

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
