Did Petreaus Betray Us (And If Not Us, His Wife... After The Election Of Course)

Tyler Durden's picture


Update, in which we find the true reason for the affair: Petraeus Won’t Testify on Benghazi Next Week, Senate Aide Says.  In other words, next time one is called to testify before a panel over the deaths of 4 people including one US ambassador, one just pulls the infidelity "get out of testimony" card and all is well.

* * *

A mere few days after the re-election of our president, CIA Director David Petraeus annoucnes his resignation:


The reason - an extra-marital affair...


Of course, the defense is already known: Petreaus did not commit that affair... the government did it for him

Via AP:

David Petraeus has resigned as director of the CIA after admitting he had an extramarital affair.


According to his letter of resignation, Petraeus asked President Barack Obama on Thursday to allow him to resign, and on Friday the president accepted.


Petraeus said in a statement that he had shown "extremely poor judgment" in having an affair.

and From the Director of National Intelligence...



Today, CIA Director David Petraeus submitted his letter of resignation to the President. Dave’s decision to step down represents the loss of one of our nation’s most respected public servants. From his long, illustrious Army career to his leadership at the helm of CIA, Dave has redefined what it means to serve and sacrifice for one’s country.


Since he took over as Director in September of last year, he and I have worked together to tackle some of the most challenging issues faced by the Intelligence Community in more than a decade. Under his leadership, the CIA remained instrumental in providing our policy makers decision advantage through the best possible intelligence. I’m particularly thankful for Dave’s unwavering support and personal commitment to my efforts to lead the Intelligence Community and integrate our intelligence enterprise.


Whether he was in uniform leading our nation’s troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, or at CIA headquarters leading the effort to generate intelligence used to keep our nation safe, Dave inspired people who had the privilege of working with him.


I have spent more than five decades serving our country–in uniform and out–and of all the exceptional men and women I have worked with over the years, I can honestly say that Dave Petraeus stands out as one of our nation’s great patriots.


On behalf of the entire Intelligence Community, I thank Dave for his service, his support and his continued friendship.

What we can change, as individuals, in the New America, is more important.  I believe that becoming physically fit, financially fit and spiritually fit is what we must do in the New America to be able to deal with what comes down the road.

Something like 33% of the folks said YES!

We have the electronic Israel voting machines. I voted GJ. I am not the guy to point a finger at someone but you can bet your ass I will this time. When it goes down I am going to point it at everyone of these mother fuckers. GOP fucked up when they smeared Ron paul and his supporters. Once Paul was basically out, Romney and his buddy decide to tell all RP supporters to vote for them and not waste their vote. Slap in the face so fuck Romney and the GOP. Romney sabotaged his own campaign. He likely didn't get 5% of Ron paul supporters vote. In fact I think some of them out of spite voted for Obama. The rest went GJ or stayed at home.

I get how you feel.  The last time I voted in my country was 2004.  It was a waste then, as it is now, because there is no discernible difference between the red and blue team in my part of the world either. Apart from debt, taxes (+/- a few % points) more promises/bribes and that they will fix things better then the other guy.

Globally the math does not add up - the system is a run away train.  It's what comes after that concerns me.

Central Intelligence Agency director David Petraeus has emphatically denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the former Navy SEALs who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the night of Sep. 11. The Weekly Standard and ABC News report that Petraeus's denial effectively implicates President Barack Obama, since a refusal to assist "would have been a presidential decision."

That makes more sense than anything. When I heard about how a CIA spokesman denied ever giving any stand down order, it put the ball in O's court.

Petraeus publicly fucked the chain of command and he was rewarded for it.

Obama waited till after the election to drop this little beauty on him.  Everyone up that high is owned. They just pulled an ace on him.

Here's what happened folks: The CIA was pissed that they got thrown under the campaign bus over Libya by Biden in the VP debate, then by the whole of Team Obama.  They started throwing out leaks on the fact that Obama and his staff watched our buys in Libya get whacked via real time video link, and denied all requests to save them either by a CIA ground team in the area or from US military assets in the Med.  This is Obama's political team trying to tell the CIA to STFU.  The CIA plays fast pitch, so look for things to get ugly.

Seriously, does anyone believe anything said by any of these people any more? He's obviously lying.

Further more, trying to think one's way through the hall of mirrors of lies is becoming...boring.

he only had one affair?

How unlike a CIA man who is wedded to the most deceitful line of business that exists. These guys have to be instrumental in killing  a hundred innocents and dropping bombs on another dozen to qualify for their entrance into Langley. 

Man, being a Templar is now a cheap business. Those Templars boasted they took down a hundred infidels with each sword blade like Custer's regiment. Just read the annals of Jean de Brienne in Hungary, as latin king of Constantinople.

I'm sure they'll get someone from Wall Street to run the CIA.

Why not Blythe Masters?  She's been manipulting silver for the last 10 years.......she'd be a perfect fit for the most manipulating govt agency of them all.

Corzine is not sneaky enough for CIA.

But I bet obama will make Corzine head of SEC and SEC TREASURY, heck why not FED CHAIR too.   Save some taxpayer money on paying 3 people.

Blythe Masters is British, so heading up the amrkn CIA would finally bring some closure to the notion of who owns the colony. . .

Closure or need for closure are psychological terms that describe the desire or "need" some individuals have for information that will allow them to conclude an issue that had previously (for them at least) been clouded in ambiguity and uncertainty.

This smells like bullshit.

I bet Petreaus was set up. Honey trap perhaps?

"Shut up about Benghazi or we tell on you."

Willing to bet he called their bluff and went public himself.

In the end, the rats are scattering. Must be bad.

Doesn't mean shit... If he does spill his guts on Benghazi, or whatever, the media will use the affair to destroy what little credibility he has.

Just another tool of the kleptocracy who's let his credibility erode to zero.

The way I look at it is either he is leaving the sinking ship or he was forced out for some reason we can only speculate on. All these guys fuck women besides their wives. If you don't they will not trust you. Got to have dirt on yourself to be trusted in DC.

Ok, I'll remember the past.. It was comjectured at the time, that he was put in that post, to keep him from running for elected office... If so, that need no longer exists..

Maybe he is actually a man with a conscience, they entrapped him and blackmailed him and the only way he figured he could get out is to man up to it.

The other possibility is that it is just smoke and he is heading off to warm up the underground bunkers.

Who would really care about an extramarital affair as long as it does not make you blackmailable? Did he fall into a honeytrap with a foreign agent?

What the chance that anything anyone in that position does is secret?  My cut: he was blackmailed over Benghazi and said: fuck you, do it.

The guy married the Commandant's daughter at West Point.  He's been a politically 'adept' schemer his whole career.  Either he got really arrogant or something else is going on.

He's a general, so it goes without saying he is an adept schemer.
