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.

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.

Ron Paul voters sunk Romney.  The GOP and their media assets are still in denial.

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.

 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."


Shocked, shocked I say!!!!!!!!!...........
