Well by now we all have seen that CIA Director David Petraeus is quitting the CIA after the FBI discovered he was having an affair with his
biographer. Could this be a cover for the Bengzahi attacks? Well lets take a look at some other info that may hold some wait...
First, the Petraeus retirement. Here's my local newspaper report on why its happening.
Specifically look at this:
The affair was discovered during an FBI investigation, according to officials briefed on the developments. They spoke on condition of anonymity
because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter. Petraeus carried on the affair with his biographer and reserve Army officer Paula
Broadwell, according to several U.S. officials with knowledge of the situation. They spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss the
investigation that led to the resignation publicly.
The FBI discovered the relationship by monitoring Petraeus' emails, after being alerted Broadwell may have had access to his personal email account,
two of the officials said. Broadwell did not respond to voice mail or email messages seeking comment. Petraeus' resignation shocked Washington's
intelligence and political communities. It was a sudden end to the public career of the best-known general of the post 9/11 wars, a man sometimes
mentioned as a potential Republican presidential candidate. His service was effusively praised Friday in statements from lawmakers of both
This is particularly interesting though...
The resignation comes at a sensitive time. The administration and the CIA have struggled to defend security and intelligence lapses before the
attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others. It was an issue during the presidential campaign that ended with Obama's
The CIA has come under intense scrutiny for providing the White House and other administration officials with talking points that led them to say the
Benghazi attack was a result of a film protest, not a militant terror attack. It has become clear that the CIA was aware the attack was distinct from
the film protests roiling across other parts of the Muslim world.
So, um, are they publicly saying that the CIA provided the White House with false information that led them to say the attacks were not a militant
And the kicker:
Morell rather than Petraeus now is expected to testify at closed congressional briefings next week on the Sept. 11 attacks on the consulate in
CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell is who is taking over for Petraeus until someone can be found to replace him. But how the hell is he getting out of
testifying in front of Congress on November 15th? Just because he left early gets him out of trouble for the attacks? That's crap to me.
So who else might be on the chopping block. Lets take a look...
A look at those expected to leave cabinet and potential replacements in
- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. (Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.; U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice; former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman;
Deputy Secretary of State William Burns).
- Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. (White House chief of staff Jack Lew; former Bill Clinton chief of staff Erskine Bowles).
-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. (Ashton Carter, Panetta's deputy; Michele Flournoy, former Defense Department policy chief). - White
House senior adviser David Plouffe.
The first one I highlighted. U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice-hmmm, isn't she the one that told the world at the U.N. that it was all about the video???
The second one is obvious. Leon Panetta will be gone for this debacle as well. That's a no brainer. However, I don't see any of the replacements a
good choice. They need a well known name in that position.
Well just wanted to comment in something other than the 280+ post on his firing here: www.abovetopsecret.com...
Have a nice day
