Most folks were shocked when General Petraeus wrote a resignation letter to President Obama, especially considering the letter’s contents. It turns out the general had an extramarital affair with a biographer who wrote a book about him, a lady who is quite good looking by the way, but is also married. This is something that is certainly not allowed because extramarital affairs can get you into trouble, and be used against you as extortion in trade for secrets, but it’s doubtful that happened in this case, as she was a West Point Graduate. General Petraeus was not only a general involved in the surge of Afghanistan, a four-star general, but he is now the head of the CIA under President Obama.
After the 2012 presidential election this entire thing unfolded in the media; only a four days later. It turns out all this information was known well in advance, as the FBI alerted the White House. The White House said they didn’t wish to deal with it right now, and to wait until after the election. The FBI agents were quite upset because obviously this is of the utmost importance for national security. Indeed, something like this could have also cost President Obama the election perhaps, and that’s why he decided to put it on off.
After all, it was Joe Biden who argued with vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan that everything was going great in Afghanistan, and the Afghan security troops were being trained to take over, and that the United States would completely exit the theater soon, bringing all of our troops home as President Obama had previously promised. David Pertraeus was very much a part of all that, and as head of the CIA he was working to ensure everything was going as planned. Now there seems to be more to the story.
Although this might sound like a conspiracy theory, we do know that General Petraeus is scheduled to give a testimony on the Benghazi Libya incident, which I believe was a covert mission gone bad, and the General was the head of the CIA, so does this mean he can take the fifth now that he is a civilian? If so, does that let Obama off the hook in this cover-up? Okay forget that thought for a moment, and realize Obama seems to have put off many things until after the election.
It also turns out that in Iranian aircraft had fired on a US predator drone over Kuwaiti airspace, but the administration also wanted to keep that quiet until after the election. Why you ask? Because president Obama had stated in the debates over and over again that the economic sanctions were working, and they expected that the Iranians would eventually give up their nuclear weapons program.
Apparently, since they are firing on US aircraft they aren’t too interested in negotiating or limiting their future offense of power. Further, the Iranians said they have the right to defend themselves which could also mean that …
