Here we go again…just another ho-hum day in bizarro-world when it comes to the Master-of-Disaster’s administration! That’s right folks….step right up, this time the head of the CIA just happened to resign shortly before he was to testify in congress this coming week…surely that’s just a coincidence dontcha know! Oh yes….and another coincidence coincided with being withheld days before the election as well, that being the Iranian strike on a US drone.
Friends…please remember that when Petraeus did testify before congress he threw his fellow CIA officers on the field in Benghazi under the bus by testifying that it was a video that started the mess…while the CIA officials stated two days earlier it was not, that it was a coordinated attack on our consulate by terrorists.
Nevertheless…this mess, this cover-up is getting deeper and deeper, you can be sure that it will continue to do so the more time goes on.
There are many reports out there…I found one earlier today that sums-up some of what’s happened today. – This is via TB:
Fox News analyst Ralph Peters on Friday called the timing of Gen. David Petraeus’ sudden resignation as CIA director “just too perfect for the Obama administration” and speculated that “tough Chicago guys” held onto knowledge of the affair until they needed to push the spy chief out.
Peters, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, said on Fox News that just as the administration initially called the assault on the Benghazi consulate on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks “purely coincidence,” it’s again “purely coincidence” for the affair to surface after the election but before Petraeus went to Capitol Hill for questioning about Benghazi. CIA Acting Director Michael Morell will now testify instead of Petraeus.
“As an old intelligence analyst, the way I read this — and I could be totally wrong, this is my interpretation — is that the administration was unhappy with Petraeus not playing ball 100 percent on their party line story,” Peters said. “I think he was getting cold feet about testifying under oath about their party line story, and I suspect that these tough Chicago guys knew of this affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card.”
He added, “Right after the election and right before Petraeus is supposed to get grilled on Capitol Hill, it just really smells.”
Make sure and watch this…Peters minced no words, he never does!
But Fox News’ Bret Baier reported shortly after the news of the resignation broke that a source close to Petraeus insisted it had nothing to do with what happened in Libya.
The source said Petraeus’ message was “tell the truth, it was my request, the White House did not pressure me to do this, this had nothing to do with Benghazi, nothing at all, this was my request, this had nothing to do with it. I want to testify about Benghazi, there was nothing to do with the White House pressuring to leave this job.”
Glenn Beck last month speculated that Petraeus would ultimately take the fall on Benghazi.
“Who have they tried to sell down the river every step of the way? The intelligence,” Beck said. “You watch. Petraeus is going to be the fall guy. They’re going to have him step down. They’re going to point all fingers to him.”
For a quick sum up of what’s to come in the hearings when it comes to Patraeus testifying or not, here’s what congressman Trey Gowdy had to say tonight on Fox.
Gowdy to Greta Van Susteren:
“The fact that he’s resigned and had an affair has nothing to do with whether he will be subpoenaed to Congress. I hope we don’t have to subpoena a four star general and a former CIA director. I would hope he would come voluntarily but if he won’t he will be subpoenaed. And none of what happened today is an offense to a subpoena… He’s either a witness in our case in chief or he’s gonna be a rebuttal witness if Susan Rice and others blame him for their failure of intelligence and failure of information. But there is no way we can get to the bottom of Benghazi without David Petraeus.”
Friends…there are a lot more reports out there concerning this issue, please share yours as well, along with your thoughts about this mess. We have murder, mayhem and one huge passing of the the buck cover-up going on with this administration, you do have to wonder how this is all going to play out before it’s over.
One other major issue…do any of you think Dear Leader’s msm will cover this story whatsoever, let alone start digging into this issue with their own investigations…or not? Don’t know about any of you…but this gal isn’t holding her breath anytime soon for that to take place.
Also keep in mind the sequence of timing that’s taking place is more than suspicious! This was leaked by this administration today…purposely. That’s right…another leak from them on a Friday night. Plus, Shrillary also was supposed to testify next week before the House committee along with Petraeus in a closed House setting, now reports are saying she says she won’t be available either…how convenient!
How long does this administration think they can continue to stall..until after the next election?
