Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus resigned after a probe into whether someone else was using his email led to the discovery that he was having an extramarital affair, according to several people briefed on the matter.
We all know Patraeus did not really have to resign. After all there is a lot of precedence; can someone remind me why these same considerations might not have applied equally to Dwight D. Eisenhower for his own marital indiscretions as Supreme Allied Commander in the Second World War? Or how come Bill Clinton wasn’t let go…even got re-elected?
Let’s start off by recognizing that the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi was in fact a CIA station. The other three “diplomats” that died with the U.S. ambassador in September, were all CIA agents. Somehow, ‘rebels’ had been tipped that the U.S. ambassador (who normally resides in the Capital, Tripoli – some 2 hours air flight away) was visiting! And, somehow, the consulate or CIA outpost had been denied additional security. Given that fact that all the staff there were CIA agents, would not that decision to add manpower to secure the location have been made by the CIA?
Yes, the CIA, was responsible for that outpost, And General Patreaus was the man in charge. And somehow, additional security was denied. Additional measures to protect the facility were not taken? Why?
And then, only a few days after the election, there is an announcement that an FBI investigation, led them to identify Patreaus in an illicit affair – with Pamela Broadwell. A little digging, and pretty soon you will find that in fact Broadwell is her married name; her maiden name is Paula Kranz. Once again, we find a pretty Jewish girl (like Monica Lewinsky) in the thick of things at the highest levels of America’s executive machine. Remember, Natenyahu was Israel’s Prime Minister during the Lewinsky case too. Patraeus was seduced like good old Bill Clinton – and caught in an Israeli web. How brilliant of the Israeli’s to plant her as ‘his biographer’ assigned by his Jewish publishers…she would have close contact with a lonely general in the desert in Iraq, and then follow him to Washington, all in the cause of writing a book. Witnesses recount them taking 5 mile runs into dark corners of the base!
A Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into use of Mr. Petraeus's Gmail account led agents to believe the woman or someone close to her had sought access to his email, the people said. You have to hand it to the FBI. Great job guys; I am shocked Tel Aviv did not have enough pull inside the FBI to pull you guys off the case. But I am sure Obama and his cohorts knew maybe even a month ago or more. And to put the Israeli’s off their case they had Susan Rice – ambassador to the U.N. – go public to say that Benghazi was the result of a rowdy crowd outside the embassy….nothing pre-planned (by the Israelis)! The FBI misled the world long enough to sniff out what was going on. Meanwhile, FBI uncovered it all. Excellent, just excellent – a real tribute to the system! That the FBI was even involved in investigating the head of the CIA is a huge – massive - deal.
Everything suddenly adds up. And obviously to avoid embarrassment, Patreaus was told to wait ‘till after the elections to resign.
Only weeks ago, there was a short news item about a snap trip by the the Israeli ambassador to U.S. making a fast run to Jerusalem to privately brief Netenyahu! Why? Well their scheme had blown up. And then on the heels of the briefing, suddenly Natenyahu made a snap decision to have a quick election in Israel in January. Did you notice how Natenyahu’s rhetoric suddenly stopped? By the time the new president (likely Romney) officially takes on his post in January Natenyahu figured he would be re-elected as Israel’s Prime Minister. Obama would be knee deep in dealing with the Fiscal Cliff, and would not have time to deal with Natenyahu’s and his dirty schemes before Romney takes office!
I wonder what Patraeus was offered in exchange for helping embarrass Obama’s administration? Did they tell him they would crown him king? I am sure he looked in the mirror and saw President Patraeus in 4 years? Oh, how narcissistic he must be? Did he really believe that they would shower him with cash and set him up in the Oval office? How vain? How stupid? Did he really think he would get away with it? Did he really think the plan to humiliate Obama would work?
Not only did it not work, but you have to take your hat off to the people of America – who despite a barrage of ads, despite over a billion dollars in attack ads on Obama – handed Obama another term. The Benghazi humiliation had clearly not worked. People saw through the wall of crap put up in front of them by Republicans.
One final thought and mark my words: Susan Rice will be the next Secretary of State! She, clearly, was on the inside on the Patraeus case. And she took the heat, but ultimately proved that she could be trusted.
