The David Petraeus affair raises a lot of questions that perhaps aren’t being asked or answered. As you’re likely aware, Petraeus was the CIA head until last Friday when he suddenly resigned citing an extramarital affair. The sudden resignation less than a week before he was to testify on the Benghazi matter has left more than a few people scratching their heads. The affair has been going on for quite some time, though the FBI alleges they suddenly found out about it recently after Petraeus’ whore Paula Broadwell harassed a third party who contacted the FBI. It doesn’t quite all add up.
If you or I contacted the FBI alleging that someone was sending us harassing emails the FBI would politely ignore us or send us off to a local police agency. So when the FBI started investigating this matter of harassing emails they clearly had an idea who the harasser was. They knew she was having an affair with Petraeus, otherwise they wouldn’t have bothered investigating the matter. The official line is that the FBI just happened to stumble upon the affair, this just isn’t believable. The FBI almost certainly knew who Broadwell was, otherwise they wouldn’t have bothered investigating a few harassing emails.
So the question becomes when did the FBI know about the affair? For the time being we don’t know the answer to the question. Supposedly Obama was shocked to discover the affair along with the Petraeus resignation last week. That is as unbelievable as the FBI stumbling upon the affair via a harassment complaint. Obama has likely known about the affair for awhile, for political reasons the Obama administrations kept the affair under wraps. It simply makes no sense that the CIA director could have an affair undetected by anyone for over a year. We’re not talking about the Secretary of Education, the CIA director is perhaps one of the most important posts in the government. There’s no doubt Petraeus went through an extensive background check and the affair was likely discovered at that time. If it wasn’t everyone at the FBI and CIA should be fired.
So why would the Obama administration want a CIA director who is having an affair to keep his post? Keep in mind the left hates David Petraeus because of his association with the Bush administration. However, Petraeus made the Obama administration look bipartisan. Obama likely viewed Petraeus as a necessary evil to help him get re-elected. Now that the election is over, Petraeus was expendable. Even better, there is a major scandal brewing which involves the CIA. Petraeus has become the scapegoat for Benghazi and now that he’s been shown to have an affair he’s lost credibility. Interestingly Bill Clinton never lost credibility for his affairs.
Just two weeks ago Petraeus was in Libya personally investigating the Benghazi matter. He’s being set up by the administration which knew he was going to be exposed as having an affair after the election. They’re setting him up to take the fall on Benghazi. My guess is that the CIA was involved in all sorts of underhanded, illegal things in Libya and the administration knows it. They had the goods on Petraeus, they knew he was committing adultery. The administration is going to pin the blame for the Benghazi disaster on Petraeus even though the administration knew for months that Petraeus was committing adultery. Not only that, it was Obama who failed to protect Ambassador Stevens with drone strikes. But we aren’t to pay attention to that because Petraeus is an adulterer.
There’s more here than meets the eye and the media won’t ask the question or put any of the facts together. Something else is going on here, my guess is that there is a major administration and CIA scandal brewing in the background which necessitated Obama using Petraeus’ adultery against him. Now we’re all focused on childish email harassing and Petraeus’ poor wife who is rightfully hurt and outraged. Meanwhile something else is really going on and no one is paying any attention to it.
