We're just getting the admin's official spin bullshit here.

Marine Gen. John R. Allen, the four-star U.S. commander of the war in Afghanistan, exchanged thousands of “potentially inappropriate” emails with Jill Kelley, the Tampa woman who claimed to have been harassed by the ex-mistress of former CIA Director David Petraeus, a senior defense official told POLITICO early Tuesday.
 
Allen, 58 and married, was nominated in October by President Barack Obama to be Supreme Allied Commander Europe and commander of the U.S. European Command.  That nomination is now on hold, but Allen will remain commander of U.S. forces and the NATO International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, the official said.

He loved it when the Constitution was being systematically destroyed & dismantled.
He thought indefinite detention and dictatorial powers for the President were great things when Bush was in office, ...but he forgot about that pesky little thing called term limits.

Who knows, ...now that Obama is the ultimate decider, maybe he can get rid of term limits all together, and grant himself an indefinite stay in the White House until America's problems are solved, ...or until the War on Terror ends (whichever comes first). Would you like that HH6? How you liking your Patriot Act now?

These generals were all set up and caught in the honey trap by Obama and his gang of marxist criminals, traitors, thugs, welfare maggots, communists who are afraid that they were going to tell the truth about Obama's treason in Libya.  Obama was arming the local Jihadi's in a sort of Fast n Furious in Libya and Amb. Stevens stiffed a few locals who went to get revenge.  The idea that this was over a video is as ludicrous and the stupid fucking mental patients who re-elected their God King Cult Messiah ObamaClaus. 

A big purge is underway, General Ham was sacked and many others in the Naval Command are being fired as well.

Petraeus friend Jill Kelley found place hosting military parties [financial woes]
 St. Petersburg - Tampa Bay Times ^ | November 13, 2012 | Staff and wires

Posted on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 5:13:09 AM by Cincinatus' Wife

........... Since the Kelleys have been in Tampa, records show, one or both have been subjects of lawsuits nine times — including an $11,000 judgment against them that originated in Pennsylvania.

Ongoing cases, the court records show, include an indebtedness case from Chase Bank; a foreclosure case from Regions Bank; and a credit card case from FIA Card Services.

Not long after the couple arrived in Tampa, Jill Kelley and her identical twin sister, Natalie Khawam, appeared for a taping of the Food Network's reality show, Food Fight.

The segment featured sibling rivalry, with the twins cooking off against two brothers.

A food show, though, was not out of the realm for the sisters.

Growing up in Philadelphia, the sisters were among four children of a couple who had immigrated from Jounieh, Lebanon, in the mid 1970s. The family owned a Middle Eastern restaurant in Philadelphia called Sahara.

The year after the sisters appeared for the show's taping, the Kelleys moved in the Bayshore Boulevard home they had bought for about $1.5 million, property records show.

....... As news of her role in the Petraeus scandal broke Sunday, Jill Kelley was throwing a birthday party for one of her daughters. A media crush waited at the curb. A sole local TV crew remained Monday morning.

By then, the Kelleys had turned to national experts for help.

They hired Abbe Lowell, a Washington lawyer who has represented clients such as former presidential candidate John Edwards and lobbyist Jack Abramoff. And the couple are employing crisis PR person Judy Smith, who has represented big names like Monica Lewinsky, Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant.

Heck I said it at the time and everyone called me crazy.  Where did those 20,000 SAM's go?  Where did all the arms of the Libyan army go?  hhhmmmmm?Huh?   Why no security at the embassy?

Very simple - we didnt need it since we were buddy buddies w the jihadi's and arming them.  Stevens got caught up in the gun running and stiffed or got double crossed by some of the locals.

Has nothing to do w incompetence.  Obama refused a marine contingent there since if the military got wind of the CIA's ops in running guns to the al queada they would have blown the lid on this insanity.  

Only a truly delusional fucking idiot blames a video for this.

Petraeus helps whistleblower's unstable twin in nasty custody fight
 ny post ^ | 11/12 | NY post


Posted on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 9:31:23 AM


Gen. David Petraeus sure loved helping his lady friends.

While he was director of the CIA, Petraeus wrote a letter supporting the child-custody fight of the “psychologically unstable” twin sister of his close friend Jill Kelley — whose bombshell claims of being threatened by his lover led to the top spy’s resignation last week, sources told The Post.

The four-star general’s letter to the court — written in the past two months — supported a motion to overturn a ruling made nearly a year earlier by a judge who resoundingly denied custody to Kelley’s sister, Natalie Khawam, because of serious reservations about her honesty and mental stability, court records show.

Fox News source: Yes, the CIA was holding prisoners at the Benghazi annex
 Hotair ^ | 11/12/2012 | AllahPundit

Posted on Monday, November 12, 2012 7:48:06 PM


Just a single source, but this does jibe with what Broadwell said in her Denver speech.


In the original Oct. 26 Fox News report, sources at the annex said that the CIA’s Global Response Staff had handed over three Libyan militia members to the Libyan authorities who came to rescue the 30 Americans in the early hours of Sept. 12.

A well-placed Washington source confirms to Fox News that there were Libyan militiamen being held at the CIA annex in Benghazi and that their presence was being looked at as a possible motive for the staged attack on the consulate and annex that night.

According to multiple intelligence sources who have served in Benghazi, there were more than just Libyan militia members who were held and interrogated by CIA contractors at the CIA annex in the days prior to the attack. Other prisoners from additional countries in Africa and the Middle East were brought to this location.

The Libya annex was the largest CIA station in North Africa, and two weeks prior to the attack, the CIA was preparing to shut it down. Most prisoners, according to British and American intelligence sources, had been moved two weeks earlier.

Two separate questions here. One: Is the CIA still operating secret prisons and, if so, how are they questioning their prisoners? Enhanced interrogation is the only part of the Bush counterterror playbook that O hasn’t adopted, or so we’ve assumed. We’ll see. Two: Did Ansar al-Sharia and its partners in jihad find out about the prisoners and attack the annex on 9/11 to try to free them? I’m thinking … probably not, for the reasons Ed gave this morning. If they thought there were prisoners at the annex, why’d they attack the consulate first and give up the advantage of surprise? The attack on the consulate wasn’t a diversion, either: According to the CIA’s timeline, the first attack at the annex didn’t happen until 11:56 p.m., more than two hours after the consulate attack had begun and after the CIA security team had already returned from the consulate to the annex. That makes it sound like the jihadis tailed the CIA’s people back to the annex; if they were planning an ambush to free prisoners, they should have had people pre-positioned there to move in as soon as they saw the CIA security team leave for the consulate earlier in the evening. And again, per Ed, if you were going to hold prisoners somewhere in the Middle East, why on earth would you choose a city as unstable as Benghazi?

Besides, the timeline of the Petraeus/Broadwell affair is hard to square with the idea of her being privy to secret info about Benghazi. Quote:


The affair between Gen. Petraeus and Broadwell, both of whom are married, began several months after his retirement from the army in August 2011 and ended four months ago, retired U.S. Army Col. Steve Boylan, who is a former Petraeus spokesperson, told ABC News…

Petraeus is said to have been the one to have broken off the extramarital affair.

If — if — all of that is accurate, then it sounds like Petraeus dumped Broadwell sometime in July and, given what we now know about those threatening e-mails that she sent to another woman, she probably didn’t take the news all that well. In which case, why would he still be sharing secrets with her two months later, after the Benghazi attack? Was Broadwell really revealing classified info in her Denver speech or was she just misremembering a report from earlier that day on Fox News? She did, reportedly, have classified documents on her computer, but both she and Petraeus claimed they didn’t come from him. And in fact, because of her background in the military, Broadwell allegedly had “a top secret/SCI clearance and then some.” She might have had access to info about Benghazi, and classified documents about whatever, from her contacts in the national security bureaucracy, entirely independent of Petraeus.

But maybe that timeline isn’t accurate. Petraeus’s allies might be keen to claim that the affair didn’t start until after he’d left the military because adultery is an infraction of the UCMJ. If the affair began while he was still in uniform, it’s not only a moral failing but potentially a legal issue.

Now, help me answer three questions. First, why did the FBI pursue its investigation of the cyber-harassment of Jill Kelley all the way back to Petraeus? My understanding from reading a bunch of stories this morning is that Kelley reported the harassment, the FBI quickly launched an investigation (no one’s sure why it was such a priority for them but maybe it has to do with Kelley’s JSOC connection), and they traced the harassing e-mails back to Broadwell. But they didn’t stop there; evidently they started digging around to see who was e-mailing Broadwell too, and they traced that back to a pseudonymous Gmail account operated by Petraeus. Er … why did they do that? Once they knew who the cyber-harasser was, why was it necessary to keep digging and piece out the entire love triangle? They’d found their suspect.

Second, why is Jill Kelley suddenly hiring some very expensive attorneys? Not only hasn’t she been accused of anything — not even an affair with Petraeus — but Petraeus and Broadwell aren’t being charged with any crimes either. Second look at what Broadwell’s father told the Daily News this morning?

Third, I have a post up in the Greenroom noting that Petraeus and Broadwell seemed conspicuously “together” as early as 2010, with even Mrs. Petraeus likely becoming aware of it before last Friday. John Brennan, Obama’s White House counterterror czar, allegedly learned of the affair in summer 2011 — before Petraeus was named the new CIA chief. That being so, how were Obama and James Clapper supposedly kept in the dark until last week? The One should be spitting mad that he wasn’t kept fully informed about potential liabilities of one of the most sensitive hires he’ll make as president. In theory, Petraeus could have been blackmailed or hacked or otherwise compromised, with catastrophic consequences for national security and O’s presidential legacy — and yet the FBI kept things hush-hush, even from their boss, until just a few days ago. Why? Here’s Scarborough and Peter King wondering. Key bit at 4:00.

Only a truly delusional fucking idiot blames a video for this.          

I believe it was the CIA and the State Dept that kept promoting the idea that it was from a video.

In any event, I see this as no different from any of the other dastardly deeds done by the CIA.

If I recall they were using the profits from their cocaine sales in America to run weapons into Iran during a time when there was an embargo against Iran. They were selling weapons to both Iran AND Iraq exascerbating a long drawn out war for both sides. Can you recall the Iran Contra hearings?  They've been arming dictators, terrorists, and anything else that will do their bidding for as long as they've been in power, ...and from my perspective that's been forever... they don't care about the ramifications or the effects on Americans. They just keep their fingers crossed that the inevitable blowback occurs on someone else's watch.

Most often these things are done in such a way as to create plausible deniability for the President.

An "investigation" could very well reveal these operations were done with neither the knowledge nor consent of the President, and as soon as he discovered what was going on, he took swift, decisive, and immediate action to put an end to the madness, contain the damage... ensure the safety of our friends in the region, and move America forward on the road to healing, jobs, and economic recovery" yada yada yada...

FBI agents inside home of Charlotte author investigated in Petraeus scandal
 AP ^

Posted on Monday, November 12, 2012 10:15:10 PM by



Federal agents are inside the home of the Charlotte author at the center of a scandal involving CIA Director David Petraeus, who resigned on Friday.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations confirms that it has agents inside Paula Broadwell's Dilworth home.

While agents on scene would not confirm what they were looking for, nearly a dozen agents were seen carrying boxes and taking photographs inside the home.

Paula Broadwell, the biographer who wrote a book about retired four-star general David Petraeus, 60, has not been seen at her Dilworth home since the news connecting her to an extramarital affair with Petraeus.

That changes a ton, doesn't it?  

Secret illegal prison on another nation's soil where people imprisoned by US are being tortured.  

Changes narrative for the left, AND the right.
