Update: Evidence mounts that Obama must have known about Petraeus’ extra-marital affair even before Petraeus was nominated as Director C.I.A. Another good question comes via this Piers Morgan video: Say, why would the FBI be investigating a CIA director, anyway?
Tax cheat Tim Geithner as Secretary of the Treasury is overlord of the IRS. A tax cheat telling the IRS what to do apparently is not a problem for the corrupt Barack Obama.
Today, as the country continues the great unraveling – which began immediately after the Tuesday elections with layoffs, stock market fiscal cliff, Taxmageddon, January 1 tax hike, shakes – we are told that the Director of the CIA has resigned. It’s unravel #1 to national security with the news breaking: Petraeus submits resignation as CIA director.
And get this: we’re supposed to believe the resignation comes because David put his peter where it did not belong. Yeah, an “extramarital affair”.
Big Media is spinning the tale that because of potential blackmail threats Petraeus has to resign. But why not end the affair, confess publicly, apologize to his wife, then continue as CIA Director? It’s not as if anyone who has seen a James Bond movie believes spies are morally upright and know nothing about sex and/or kinky sex. Petraeus could have submitted his resignation and Obama turned it down. The notion that something here does not stink (are you listening Allahpundit?) and that this story passes the Obama stink test is risible.
Soon we will hear from Big Media that this is a big publicity stunt for the new James Bond 007 movie that opens today. Skyfall indeed!
One more point for the gullible to consider: if the scandal was so debilitating why did Petraeus wait until after the election to announce this resignation in light of the fact he was screwing around a long time ago (between July 2011 and July 2012)? To believe the Big Media reasoning Petraeus is so honorable he put national security at risk in order to protect Barack Obama’s reelection. Or maybe marital infidelity is not the reason and indeed Petraeus has been squeezed out.
After the shock of the Petraeus resignation we are told that dear departed director will now not testify at next week’s Ben-ghazi hearings. Imagine that.
Petraeus and the CIA had been fighting, as spooks do with leaks, the Obama lies on Ben-ghazi. Don’t you think Obama knew he had to get rid of Petraeus somehow and preferably on a Friday news dump type day?
How to get rid of a Director CIA that is unwilling to throw CIA under the bus in order to defend the corrupt Obama? Easy, do it the usual Obama way. Use sex files. It’s how Obama has repeatedly gotten rid of opponents throughout his career.
We still have not heard a convincing story from the corrupt Obama White House about what happened in Ben-ghazi. The Wall Street Journal recently Revealed: Confusion between State and CIA over security in Benghazi. That Ben-ghazi diplomatic facility was a State Department consulate as well as, maybe primarily, a CIA station.
We want a full and complete investigation as to what happened in Ben-ghazi.
Here’s a fun conspiracy theory which will not hold up to scrutiny but which will soon circulate among the haters: Perhaps Bill Clinton campaigned for Obama in order to shield Hillary from Ben-ghazi. The fun in this wacky theory is that Petraeus gets whacked with a sex scandal as part of a deal with Bill Clinton who knows a little something about sex scandals. Hint: the timeline for this theory won’t hold up.
[While we’re at it, Let’s unravel another recent conspiracy theory, the senseless one of a Bill Clinton deal with Obama to make Hillary the nominee in 2016. This conspiracy theory is buttressed with results of the first 2016 Iowa poll: Hillary 58, Biden 17, Cuomo 6. For this one to be true you would have to believe that Obama can be trusted. Now, do you really? Do you really think that Obama is going to want to diminish himself by having Hillary be not only the first woman president but also the first spouse to become president? Obama already follows a son of a Bush presidency and he does not want to become a slice of baloney sandwiched in between two “dynasty” breads. So come on guys, you know Obama cannot be trusted so stop with this foolishness.]
We need a full and complete investigation into Ben-ghazi and just about everything else the poisonous hands of Obama touch.
As we have warned from the very beginning of this site, Barack Obama is very very good, near genius levels, when it comes to corruptly advancing himself. At governing Barack Obama is a corrupt boob that cannot be trusted.
We are concerned that with Hillary Clinton departing in late January, Leon Panetta probably resigning as well, and now David Petraeus gone – the United States is in danger.
