Patraeus Resigns Over Affair With Biographer


General Petraeus is resigning from his post as CIA Director right before he is supposed to get grilled on Capitol Hill. I’m sure there will be no conspiracy theories about this.

    Petraeus cant testify about the made up story about a youtube video. This guy is the fall guy for a gun running operation to the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria gone bad. Putin put a hit on Ambassador Stevens in retaliation for the USA sending left over arms from Lybia to Turkey to smuggle into Syria. Obama knew what the attack was all about and could not send aid for fear that his entire illegal scheme would be revealed. Instead he sacrificed 4 lives and came up with this YouTube lie to cover his ass.

    I always thought the term “loose lips sink ships” was only applicable in an oratory context.

    I saw on Friday, the day he resigned, Fox “The 5” said “I’m not into the whole conspiracy thing but…” then they continued to talk about a conspiracy

    Since Benghazi, both General Officers in the vicinity and now the CIA Director have been relieved of command (Africom commander General Hamm and Admiral Gaouette).  Something fishy is going on. 
     
    Petraeus’ chick is on http://www.breitbart.com saying the the CIA was running a prison there.

    The Obama Administration has his pension and Petraeus’ daughter’s $250k job at the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection as hostages.  Petraeus isn’t going to say shit.

    I’m just glad this had nothing to do with “don’t ask don’t tell” violations.
     
    Have you seen is wife? I mean he’s head of the CIA and one of the most powerful people in the world, dude should always have an unbelievably hot Bond girl on each arm.
