He betrayed us on two fronts
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/11/2012 5:11:06 AM

Mother always said the bigger they are, the harder they fall. If ever there was any doubt, the stunning case of CIA boss David Petraeus dispels it. The most important and celebrated military leader of our time has fallen from the sky with a thud that is shaking all of Washington. His personal life and career are in tatters, but that is not the whole story. Not by a long shot. Petraeus, once talked about as presidential timber, played a big part in the administration’s misleading narrative surrounding the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

Well,first you had the Petraeus the left hated while he was under Bush to the beloved Petraeus now that he worked under Obama. The left would love to slam Petraeus for being a hypocrite on family value but since he worked for Obama,that´s out the window. The thing is,the average person know very little about him except for some well crafted headlines here and there,no different than Obama getting kudos for making a hollow appearance after Sandy.

I´m not even sure if Petraeus deserves credit for the surge. I think General Keane was the real mastermind behind it.

Im not sure why his having an affair should be an issue? Wasn´t it sex between consenting adults after all? At least thats been the democrat position since before Clinton became president. Why should we care?

OR..........is this suddenly as issue so that Petraeus can be discredited before he testifies? Suddenly, America should NOT believe what a cheater says....Unless its coming from a Clinton or Kennedy.

The biggest heroes of the Democratic Party have and are having many affairs. All Kennedy men and Bill Clinton among thousands. On the left it is a lifestyle choice, vote getter and badge of honor. Why is it a problem for General Petraeus?

David Axelrods favorite opponent killer is anything having to do with sex. If I were POTUS and wanted to burn the Constitution, then rub the ashes in the face of the American People, I would want someone like David Petraeus OUT OF THE WAY!

Even under the current circumstances, Petraeus is more presidential timber than the current twig that is preparing to sully the White House for another four years. Did "Mr. Get A Lewinsky Under His Desk In The Oval Office" get questioned about his presidential timber?

Petraeus was a recognized American hero but he started drinking the Øbama koolaid and look what happened? Everything Øbama touches turns to rubbish. I am wondering if alcohol played any part in Petraeus´ downfall? Once important people in high places start drinking their integrity seems to fall apart. One thing I really liked about Romney was he was not a drinker of alcohol. That says a lot in todays world.

Comments like reply #2 simply reinforce the old joke: Why does the average man prefer beauty to brains? Because the average man can see better than he can think.

Fortunately the moral man is above average.

Being an Army mom and living in an Army town, I have heard dozens of Holly Petraeus stories from military families she has personally touched. In recent years she has worked to protect military families from financial fraud through Military Better Business Bureau initiatives and fighting other finance fraud schemes against military families. She’s been a blessing to the General and to the Military. If, at 60, she’s not runway ready, that has little effect on her value as a woman… if you’re a real man.

Anti-Science Environmentalists Ban ´Neonic´
Insecticides, Imperiling Global Health
Forbes, by Richard Tren    Original Article

Some of history’s greatest advances in public health – especially in regions plagued by insect borne diseases – have come from the judicious use of pesticides to kill or repel the insect vector before it can infect human populations. Because the market for public health pesticides is relatively small, however, most of these vital chemistries were developed for larger agricultural uses. Unfortunately, that source of new products is increasingly under threat from shortsighted environmentalism and the European embrace of “precautionary” regulation. As unpleasant as this cold winter is, at least those annoying mosquitoes have disappeared and won’t be back for

Who killed Kennedy? The CIA. Who introduced AIDS to Africa? The CIA. Sure, it´s crazy talk. But those stories were two of Moscow´s most successful disinformation campaigns during the Cold War. And now Vladimir Putin is reviving these dirty tricks. That´s the argument made in Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism, co-authored by Ion Pacepa, an ex-intelligence officer who defected from Romania in 1978, and Ronald Rychlak, a professor at the University of Mississippi. And what´s happened during the Ukraine crisis surely supports their thesis.

U.S. Navy SEALs have taken control of a commercial tanker that had been seized by three armed Libyans earlier this month. No one was hurt in the Sunday night operation, the Pentagon said. The tanker, Morning Glory, is carrying oil owned by Libya´s National Oil Company. It sailed last week from the rebel-held port of As-Sidra in the nation´s east. Libyan forces fired on the vessel but were called off by the U.S. Navy, fearing an environmental disaster. The situation remains unsettled in the North African nation, which the government is struggling to control more than two years after the ouster of longtime Libyan

Pilot Suicide a Taboo Topic

Canberra, Australia - As police investigate the two pilots of a Malaysian passenger jet that disappeared more than a week ago, a possibility they must consider — however remote and improbable — is that one of them committed suicide — and mass murder in the process. While such incidents have happened before, the topic remains almost taboo, with investigators and officials reluctant to conclude that a pilot purposely crashed a plane in order to commit suicide even when the evidence appears compelling. A dozen years ago, U.S. investigators filed a final report into the 1999 crash of EgyptAir Flight 990,

Former Alaska governor and failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be launching something called “Rogue TV,” a digital video channel on Tapp, the platform piloted by former CNN executive Jon Klein and former NBC Universal’s Jeff Gaspin. The news comes from Capital New York’s Alex Weprin. Of what will “Rogue TV” consist? Well, it sounds like an extension of Palin’s work for Fox News channel, where she is a contributor. There’ll be video commentaries on current events and politics, reports Weprin. “Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page,” a source tells him. There’ll also be

Sleepless in Simferopol

SIMFEROPOL, CRIMEA — No one has any idea what President Vladimir Putin will do after Crimea votes on Sunday to join Russia. But if bankers and diplomats from New York to London are sleeping fitfully, worried whether Russia’s about to launch World War Three, you can only imagine what´s going through the mind of Adavye Osmanova, a 79-year-old Tatar woman in the Crimean capital of Simferopol. She had worn her best dress to meet me—black with gold stitching—but she looked drawn and exhausted. Putin has said he is obliged to defend the Russian-speakers of Crimea from the new government in Kiev,

Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, garnered 15%, with longtime Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who´s considering another bid for the White House, at 11%.

While we wring our hands over whether we have any options in preventing Crimea from being slowly — but almost surely — sucked into the Russian sphere of influence for good, the fact is that the Kremlin clearly thought it could get away with it. Why? Weakness. There’s no doubt that Russian President Vladimir Putin long ago sized up President Obama, including his world view, his interest in international affairs and his style of foreign policy–and from that made an assessment. It’s also fair to say that the Kremlin probably concluded from this ongoing internal estimate of the White House over the past

Nov. 19, 1961: Two young men drift on an overturned catamaran along the coast of southwest New Guinea. Twenty-four hours have passed since their motor died. One of the men, Michael Rockefeller, 23, the son of New York governor and future Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and scion to one of the richest families in America, decides to swim 10 miles to shore. This is the last time Michael Rockefeller is seen alive. The official cause of death would later be listed as drowning. The prevailing theory was that he was consumed by sharks. They got one thing right: Michael was eaten. But it wasn’t

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing.

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

One of our planes is missing. That’s basically all we know for certain right now, but more than a week after losing contact with flight MH370, there are a lot of other suggestive bits of information. Unfortunately, a lot of it is, as usual, being reported by news readers who barely understand that you don’t want to keep the pointy end aimed at the ground for an extended time. Here’s some things we do know now. The first indication of trouble was when the transponder stopped responding to radar. This is the point where newspeople are saying it “dropped off the radar,”

The number bounced around for years — 46 million. President Obama said it in August 2009: “I don’t have to explain to you that nearly 46 million Americans don’t have health insurance coverage today. In the wealthiest nation on Earth, 46 million of our fellow citizens have no coverage.” He said it dozens more times, including in June 2013: “We are not a nation that accepts nearly 46 million uninsured men, women and children.” The Obama administration pumped the number with official reports.
