General Petraeus's Confession --WHY was it public?
seems there is something fishy about the timing of General Petraeus's
confession. Did O's people MAKE him confess and resign, in hopes he
wouldn't have to testify? Did they threaten him with worse problems
regarding prosecution and pension, etc., if he didn't step down before
Benghazi hits the fan? Was either P or O hoping to distract from any
errors of theirs re: Benghazi? Why is it ok for Clinton to skirt
around but not a general? Clinton was Commander in chief, after all!
Not that adultery isn't serious betrayal and risky for CIA as well as
presidents, making them both vulnerable to blackmail-based decisions.
But why is it a step-down offense for a general but not for the
Commander in Chief? Why wouldn't the general just protect his wife as
well as himself from the shame --and just quietly make up with his wife
if he could --or quietly resign. Why the public confession? He seems
genuinely contrite, but methinks somebody got to him --and it has to do
with Benghazi. I think O's people wanted him to resign and want to
imply eventually that any error in Benghazi was P's fault due to his
distractions in the moral arena. Maybe someone put a million in an off
shore bank account for P. Yes, I'm just speculating --but I smell a
rat here! The public disclosure makes no sense.
