Default Petraeus

So what's really going on here? The timing of this scandal is quite peculiar.

Here is my conspiracy theory on this. Petraeus outed himself because he was being blackmailed about the affair. He knows what happened in Libya and was told to keep it quite and go along with a cover up.

He ousted himself and took away any leverage anyone had on him. He is gone from his position and has nothing left to lose so to speak.

His testimony will be the truth of what happened in Libya.

Anyone else have any theories? Or is this really just an affair that happened to break the day after elections and just before testimony about Libya?

I'm surprised that he was nailing someone pretty good looking. So many of them shack up with the likes of Monika that it makes me scratch my head in amazement.

The whole things seems really strange. Why would Kelly go to the FBI with those emails? Why would she not go to Petraeus himself if the emails were non threatening? She had to know the FBI would turn her life upside down during an investigation.

And yes, at least he was nailing a good looking chick.

That was actually my first thought as well. lol

As far as what really happened, it seems like such a web: the mistress, the general, some other jealous woman, Chuck Klosterman, an overzealous FBI agent, and there are inclinations that even the husband of the mistress may have been the one to open the can of worms...

I'm not one to buy into conspiracy theories so I'll stick with the simplest explanation being the most logical: Petreaus learned the affair was likely about to be made public and stepped down to save himself the further embarrassment of being fired because he knew that even if he wouldn't lose his job over just an affair, he would over an affair with an embedded journalist who may or may not have had access to classified information.

True, I read a report that they did find classified info on Broadwells computer but at the time they said they did not think it came from Petraeus. But this is obviously early on in the investigation.

Not just that but it's starting to appear that all of our top military leaders are being discredited and replaced by Obama lackeys... even Panetta is looking at being replaced by John Kerry.

When a radical organization removes the current top military commanders throughout the world and replaces them with commanders "loyal" to them... what usually happens soon after? History has given us that answer over and over.

speaking of Monika, why did prez slick willey get a pass on her and the director of the CIA is crucified?
it's a bloodless coup that would make joseph stalin proud.

Anyone wants to guess the over/under on how many of our outstanding service men get ousted on this witch hunt, making us look like fools to the rest of the world?

I heard something on talk radio todayabout how Dick, er, Eric Holder knew about it since July. They just wanted to keep a little trump card "just in case". Patraeus said he will testify weather he has job or not. Of course the first one will be behind closed doors tomorrow.

I see thes posts on fb by lefties saying "oh attacks happened with x-repub pres blah blah blah". My counter is that he probably wasn't sitting there watching it happen and the instant communication more than likely wasn''t there much more than 12-14 years ago.

Keep your pecker in your pants and you wouldn't have these problems. Don't blame Obama for someone who can't be faithful to their wife.

I am laughing at the label "personal biographer" I think they should label these woman "special assistant". Any man would have a difficult time having this woman follow you around taking dictation, for 11 years while you were stationed over see's.

Pour Patraeous, he probably wants to be sent to the front lines of battle and live in a bunker where it is safe. I bet Sandy is one nasty bitch to be around.

"David, I did suck your dick in 1975 why did you do this.

So having to endure an impeachment hearing and months of press coverage over a few BJ's is "getting a pass", but being allowed to retire on your own terms over a multiple year affair possibly involving multiple woman as access to top secret information and military bases is "getting crucified"?

I just find it odd this all came out right before he was going to testify about Benghazi. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but I don't think those happen often in politics.
