Which one? They seem to have every disgruntled flag officer on the payroll.

Don't you see a little something that might be unacceptable to a man who runs the CIA setting himself up for blackmail?

That all said, I've no doubt that the media has known about this for a while, and has sat on it.
If they are so uncurious about what actually happened at Benghazi, who doubts that they were protecting him, and most importantly his boss.
Lost all respect for Paetreus when he went to work for and with people, especially Hillary, who actually told him when she was a senator, that one had to wonder whether or not they should suspend disbelief when hearing him testify.
To me that was a dead give away on his character.

First it was a disgruntled LtCol and secondly even Fox wouldn't have over 500 flag officers on the payroll.

The fact is heterosexuals like women, men cheat when they are with hot chicks for a prolonged period of time and there is currently a war on heterosexuals in the military and the government.


If he sucked a dick he would be defended by Toddy and his crowd and welcomed to the land of diversity, adultery is against the law in the UCMJ, and the double standard only works for politicians.



A war on heterosexuals ? I don't think he should have to resign because he had an affair.

Why should an affair have anything to do about testifying on Benghazi?

This is the underlying question?

That logic has been discarded, how is he vulnerable if he admits the affair? Not really much of an ability to blackmail someone over something that is public knowledge.

And now being reported Petraeus will NOT testify


One of his deputies will be testifying in place of him.

Sucks because I really wanted him to go under oath.

He'll be read out. Can't discuss classified info after that.

No, but he has proven himself to have poor judgement. Totally unacceptable in the CIA Director. He came out and admitted it. Not everyone would. But it still makes him a security risk. His advice and judgement would always be suspect. He let his country down.
I don't care which admin he worked for in that respect. He's gotta go.
Now how long O and the media knew about it is another matter.

Anyone who thinks a president can drill an intern and keep his position should have no problem with a CIA figure doing the same.

Benghazi is about to heat the frick up
