This may prove even more important than the initial reports suggest.
Is Director David Petraeus a fatality of Chicago politics – made to remain silent prior to the election and now left to act as the administration’s sacrifice to Congressional investigators in the wake of the Benghazi scandal?
Or is the former military general preparing to unleash facts that will lead directly back to the Obama White House and the president himself regarding what really happened on September 11th of this year when four Americans – including a U.S. ambassador, were killed during a coordinated terrorist attack against an American consulate?
Keep your eyes and ears open folks. The timing of this announcement, including Barack Obama quickly heading out of the country, suggests a very volatile situation for the Obama administration.
UPDATE: Reports now circulating that Petraeus’ scheduled testimony next week before Congress regarding the Benghazi Massacre has been cancelled.
That makes absolutely no sense. Will Congress simply subpoena Petraeus and force his testimony regardless? More importantly – why WOULDN”T Congress do just that? And would the former general participate, or would he plead the 5th? Or perhaps the Obama White House would initiate sweeping Executive Privilege as they did with Fast and Furious and dare Congressional leaders to try and force the president’s hand. He so far has successfully buried the Fast and Furious investigation – why not Benghazi as well?
At this point, obviously far more questions than answers. What seems clear for now is the resignation of a CIA Director for an affair that some are suggesting took place over a year ago. And since when do administration officials resign over alleged marital affairs? Didn’t Bill Clinton break that moral barrier down some 15 years ago?
And all of this coming after an election in which many are going back to the results and indicating the numbers just don’t add up…
