~Sir Winston Churchill  speaking  on   November  9, 1942


The latest formal criminal complaint naming OBAMA in TREASON was filed this morning at 1131 hours local (11: 31 a.m. EST).  The TREASON complaint is copied below for your convenience.

Thursday, 8 November 2012
70th Anniversary OPERATION TORCH – World War II Northwest Africa – Casablanca

From: Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III United States Navy Retired

To:       Robert Swan Mueller, III, Director – Federal Bureau of     Investigation, Washington D.C. (ORIGINAL)

The Foreman of the two sitting Federal Grand Juries sitting in Knoxville, Tennessee via William C. Killian, U.S. Attorney for Tennessee’s Easter District

SUBJECT:   FORMAL CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS NAMING BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IN COMMISSION OF TREASON

1. OBAMA represents a clear and present danger to U.S. national security, to the U.S. Constitution and to our Republican form of government. OBAMA IS A FOREIGN BORN DOMESTIC ENEMY! OBAMA is working assiduously to destroy America! No document record exists showing Barack Hussein OBAMA to be a United States citizen.

2. OBAMA paid money and aided and abetted Al-Qaeda members and groups that attacked Americans on U.S. territory in Benghazi, Libya on 11 and 12 September 2012. Al-Qaeda is the jihadist terrorist organization that attacked the United States on 11 September 2001.

3. Pro-jihadist and Islamist OBAMA personally denied frantic cries for help from Americans in mortal danger throughout a 7-hour attack by approximately 150 heavily armed known jihadists. OBAMA watched four Americans die in real time. OBAMA is allowing our enemies to slaughter our servicemen piecemeal at the same time ordering our troops to disarm.

4. OBAMA lies to the American people about his TREASON with every opportunity. OBAMA is lying to the American people about the 11-12 September attack in Benghazi, Libya in a cover story intended to protect OBAMA from facing a criminal prosecution and conviction.

5. OBAMA is personally responsible for the 6 August 2011 shoot-down of an Army CH-47D Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan. 17 Navy SEALS died. All 5 men of the Chinook crew died. 3 Air Force special tactics airmen died. 5 men of a Navy support force died. OBAMA and his gang of outlaws lie to the America people about that

6.  In commission OBAMA is engaged in purchasing and supplying guns, heavy weapons, high-powered munitions and explosives to foreign aggressors—AMERICA’S ENEMIES—around the globe. OBAMA has and continues to ship weapons from Libya to Syria through Turkey. Some weapons may be being directly shipped to Syria. Christopher Stevens was OBAMA’s point man of this operation when Stevens was murdered in Benghazi during the attack of 11-12 September 2012. In this TREASON OBAMA is arming America’s enemies: Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood connected to Syrian rebels.

7. As an Act of TREASON OBAMA provides safe-haven and sanctuary to those bent on the destruction of the United States, its people, and its form of government. OBAMA encourages, facilitates and arms our enemies to carry out a WAR on the United States from enemy bases set up in the homeland and around the globe. OBAMA aids and abets these known enemy forces to establish and strike from strongholds OBAMA allows established on American soil.

8. OBAMA refuses to pledge his allegiance to the United States.  OBAMA conspires with leaders of countries, groups and organizations bent upon the destruction of America. By so doing OBAMA engages in TREASON against the United States in every aspect of TREASON.

9. As an Act of TREASON OBAMA  broke into and occupies the White House by force of contrivance, concealment, conceit, dissembling and deceit. OBAMA is an undocumented illegal alien and spy. Posing as an imposter president and commander-in-chief OBAMA strips civilian command and control over the military establishment. Known military criminal actors—command racketeers such as Martin Dempsey—are free in the exercise of an extra-military government intent upon the destruction of our Republican, constitutional form of governance. There are dozens of senior military commanders no more obedient to the United States Constitution than is OBAMA.

10. OBAMA  is joined in his TREASON by a raft of civilian criminal assistants too numerous to name in this submission. I leave it to the Grand Jury, in the conduct of an independent, autonomous, and unfettered investigation, to assign specificity and particularity to the list of OBAMA’S co-conspiring outlaws.

11. OBAMA is  a FOREIGN BORN DOMESTIC ENEMY, an infiltrator, a traitor and a spy. OBAMA installed and operates a government that rivals and competes with our U.S. Constitution. OBAMA operates government not found in our United States Constitution. If not arrested OBAMA will continue to commit TREASON. OBAMA is emboldened now and more dangerous to this country’s survival as a constitutional Republic than any other threat the United States faces in the world.

12.  We come now to this reckoning: I accuse Barack Hussein OBAMA of TREASON. I accuse OBAMA’S military-political criminal assistants of TREASON. Their criminal mischief is recognized as TREASON in pure form. I expose and identify OBAMA and his criminal associates as TRAITORS (Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, Susan Rice, David Petraeus and Martin Dempsey, but a few).

13.  It needs be said out loud and relentlessly: OBAMA is aiding and abetting America’s enemies. OBAMA is lying to the American people in every regard going to OBAMA’S TREASONOUNS escapades. OBAMA IS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THESE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

14. This submission renews and extends all previous filings naming OBAMA in commission of TREASON dating from 17 March 2009. The list of ACTS of OBAMA’S TREASON found in this formal criminal complaint is not exhaustive. Far from it.

15.  My sworn duty is to stand against everything OBAMA stands for. The  FOREIGN BORN DOMESTIC ENEMY OBAMA IS NOT MY PRESIDENT! HE IS NOT MY COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF!

     “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

Obedient to my oath to the United States Constitution in submission of this criminal complaint for TREASON I remain stead fast and,

BORN FIGHTING,

/s/

  1. Walter Fitzpatrick is a true patriot. He has been through so much in Tennessee, and yet he continues the fight.

    • I’m not sure I understand what’s going on her. Is this truly before a federally instituted Grand Jury?

      • Is this truly before a federally instituted Grand Jury?

        When I read the complaint, I didn’t see anything to indicate that this is anything more than Fitzpatrick writing up charges and delivering them to the FBI and to the foreman of two federal grand juries via the Eastern Tenn. U.S. Attorney. As much as I wish someone within the judicial system or Congress would take these matters seriously, if for no other reason than to put them to rest, I don’t think Fitzpatrick’s charges will receive any more attention or carry any more weight than any of the previous citizen grand jury indictments. Getting any of these charges before a federally instituted grand jury, barring Divine Intervention or barry’s handlers deciding to throw him under bus, which isn’t likely, since they wouldn’t want him yakking, I don’t have much hope we will ever see bar-gollum indicted for anything.

        • Thanks for the analysis. I’m not that into following all these cases. I read the scribd document but didn’t understand what would happen next, if anything.

  2. I am praying for the truth to be shared and the laws of our country ENFORCED!!!!

  3. Good for them.let the trials begin. :)

  4. Lord, forgive them for they know not what they ask for.

    Chants for ‘Karl Marx,’ ‘socialism’ at Dem victory rally
    Students outside White House celebrate: ‘Everyone is getting a f**king Obama phone’
    Nov. 8

    (CampusReform) A group of college students chanted “Karl Marx” and “socialism” while celebrating President Obama’s electoral victory in front of the White House late Tuesday night, a video shot by Campus Reform reveals. The raucous group of students chanted “Karl Marx, Karl Marx, Karl Marx,” and cited abortion, socialism, and “Obama phones” as reasons for their support of President Obama’s second term.

    Thousands of college students from across Washington D.C. spontaneously gathered in front of the White House to celebrate President Obama’s reelection. [Didn't they spontaneously gather there after news about Bin Laden?]

    • I heard that a large percentage of Cuban-Americans voted for Obama. This from people who know better than anyone what a communist dictatorship can do. Why do I suspect that the increase is among the second-generation young who never knew Cuban communism and have been brainwashed by our educational system?

  5. General Petraeus has resigned! BREAKING NEWS. I just heard it on Fox News radio. They just confirmed that he resigned. That’s all they have. I can’t find a news story online yet. Not on Drudge yet.

    • http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/NATL-CIA-Director-Petraeus-Resigns-Cites-Extra-Marital-Affair-178159541.html

      Under the bus? So he won’t testify next week? “Citing an extra-marital affair!” Unbelievable. Armageddon.

      They say they’ll add to that story as it develops. Blackmailed? Forced out? This explains a lot. He’s taking the high road, not caving to the blackmail, telling the truth now? I always had respect for him. WTF is going on in our country?

        “Here is Petraeus’ resignation letter:

        HEADQUARTERS Central Intelligence Agency

        9 November 2012
        Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position as D/CIA. After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation.

        As I depart Langley, I want you to know that it has been the greatest of privileges to have served with you, the officers of our Nation’s Silent Service, a work force that is truly exceptional in every regard. Indeed, you did extraordinary work on a host of critical missions during my time as director, and I am deeply grateful to you for that.

        Teddy Roosevelt once observed that life’s greatest gift is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. I will always treasure my opportunity to have done that with you and I will always regret the circumstances that brought that work with you to an end.
        Thank you for your extraordinary service to our country, and best wishes for continued success in the important endeavors that lie ahead for our country and our Agency.

        With admiration and appreciation,
        David H. Petraeus”

        • “Multiple sources tell NBC News that Mike Morrell, the deputy CIA director and a longtime CIA officer, would likely be offered the job as acting director but with the understanding that he may be elevated to the job permanently at some point. … Morrell is a longtime CIA analyst and was an eyewitness to two of the most momentous events in recent U.S. history. He was traveling with President George W. Bush on Sept. 11, 2001, as the president’s briefer, and was in the Situation Room on May 1, 2011, as deputy CIA Director, when Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden.”

          So now the question becomes: Does this put him beyond the reach of a subpoena by the Congressional committee looking into Benghazigate?

      • This sounds TOO Machiavellian. Did he really have an affair or was that the price of allowing him to resign? They made up an implausible “plausible” reason for his resignation, so this man of honor (?) didn’t have to go before Congress and LIE for Barry? He had to besmirch himself and his family in order to get out of this? I wondered why he was helping Barry out of this Benghazigate situation by the CIA statements before the election. Surely he wanted out BEFORE the election? OR did they know of the affair and use it to force those statements and now he’s had enough and is “outing” himself to save himself from Scooter Libby’s fate?

        • I bet the Obama administration knew ahead of time, and did use it against him. It would make sense as to why that bogus report was produced too. Will Holly his wife speak? Leave it to the media to uncover the information about the other woman. We will see her soon. Did he decide he couldn’t work for the Obama administration for another four years? He was hoping for a republican to come in? I can’t imagine having to go public with an affair – think of the military morale that is already low.

          • I heard on the radio news just now that Petraeus said it had nothing to do with Benghazi and nothing to do with the investigation of Benghazi and that he was looking forward to testifying. Operative word being “was”? In any case, the rule applies: Whatever they say, the OPPOSITE IS TRUE. They wouldn’t have MADE HIM SAY THIS if it weren’t true that it has EVERYTHING to do with his testimony about Benghazi.

            Who’s this woman he had the affair with? Where did it happen? For how long did it go on? Let’s guess that unlike with Herman Cain’s accusers, the media will have NO INTEREST in finding the woman and outing her. If he was looking forward to testifying, then why resign NOW? Why not resign BEFORE the election? Why FRIDAY AFTERNOON “document dump” time? I would bet he expected Romney to win and when he didn’t (well, he did, but that’s another story), when Obama was selected again, then either he had to go lie for him under oath or else they were using this affair against him to persuade him to lie and he had enough. So what’s next? Is there a threat that he will lose his retirement? They “allowed” him to resign but he has to STFU about Benghazi?

            WHAT WE NEED DESPERATELY ARE A FEW GOOD MEN.

            Remember, too, that today they charged SEALS with giving out secrets. Ruined their careers and chances of promotion. WARNING SHOT ACROSS THE BOW.

          • Think about how corruptly ALINSKY this is: Destroy the morale of the troops by diminishing the honor of this man. Allow him to resign (because he’s going to tell the truth and they can’t have that) BUT you have to have an excuse. If he just resigns, everybody KNOWS it’s because of Benghazi and how he won’t LIE for Obama. So make up an excuse he must use and make it something that diminishes the military and the CIA and the entire country. A man who was a hero? Destroy him. We’ll see how the media reacts to this one. WILL THERE FINALLY BE A WOODWARD OUT THERE? WILL WOODWARD HIMSELF SMELL THE ROT? Will they go looking for this woman? Even if they find one, then I believe it will be that they used the threat of exposure to get him to comply.

          • I read the woman worked for the lady that claimed to be of Indian heritage and just won an election…..???

          • The woman is his biographer and she is married with two kids. Her name is Paula Broadwell. This tip was started through the FBI when they were investigating something else.

            The FBI has a bigger fish to catch and he sits in the white House. If they can investigate something that relates to Petraeus being blackmailed, they sure can look at BHO.

            She spent a year in Afghanistan.

          • Mrs. Petraeus worked for Elizabeth Warren.

        • Rosemary Woodhouse

          Miri, why would this preclude him from testifying?

          • I remember that in some other instance, a Congressional subpoena was void when the person no longer worked for the government. I thought that was the case. I’m asking if it is. Will he still testify?

          • “WAS slated to testify”: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/11/09/CIA-Director-Petraeus-Resigns

            “Now that the Obama administration has succeeded in winning a second term, they are cleaning house. The two figures most linked to the disaster in Benghazi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Petraeus, are gone. The figure most linked with Fast and Furious, Eric Holder, will be gone. The figure most linked to the administration’s economic failures, Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner, will be gone.

            Only Obama remains. He ran out the clock on his scandals, and now throws anyone associated with them overboard.

            The Petraeus resignation is only the most recent evidence that the Obama administration will lie to the American people to achieve its ends. But with all of his experts gone, Obama’s cabinet will now be staffed by the political C team in a time of crisis, both domestically and internationally.”

          • I just heard on radio that he won’t testify now. Convenient, huh?

            And Barry’s compromise is that unless they do what he said during the campaign–raise taxes only on the “wealthy”–he will veto any bill that extends the Bush tax cuts to ALL. It’s his way or the highway. That’s Barry’s definition of “compromise” and “working with” people. We’re to see another meeting with Republicans, like last time, when I guess he’ll once again tell everybody “I won.” He wants the House to rubber stamp the bill the Senate passed, which only extends the Bush cuts to the middle class (or Barry’s definition of the middle class). If they don’t, he’ll veto the bill that extends them for the “rich” and he will blame the Republican House for it. He stacked the audience for his speech with minions, allegedly “middle class folks” who want to tax the “rich”. That’s how he reaches out across the aisle. Not to the HALF THE COUNTRY who voted AGAINST HIM. And exit polls showed that 60% of voters want SMALLER GOVERNMENT.

            IF it’s possible that vote fraud and/or election fraud allowed him to steal this election, then even IF the Republicans KNOW IT, at this point, it will be like with the birth certificate. THEY DIDN’T SPEAK OUT IN TIME and now he has them over a barrel. Do you think that NOW, after he’s declared victory, after Romney gave in (conceded), and after all the obots and his minions and his deluded supporters celebrated, the Republicans will push to get him out of office? What will it take? He can’t be impeached. The Senate won’t go along. By being tools, the Republicans have played right into his hands and our country is lost. Maybe forever.

          • Congress can ask anyone to testify, private citizens included. He doesn’t want to, but that doesn’t mean that Congress won’t demand that he do so.

          • they can reissue a supena to him as a citizen if they decide to.

          • I hope that they do, alfy. I found a story about the subpoenas issued to ball players. If they bother to question them, I would hope they reissue a subpoena to Petraeus. But I suspect they won’t. I’m that fatalistic about the way our country is going. We need a few good men and women in Congress to step up. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/explainer/2005/03/do_you_have_to_testify_before_congress.html

            Can Congress issue subpoenas and contempt citations to anyone? Pretty much, but it’s a power that’s expanded over the years. By 1881, Congress had an established right to issue subpoenas and contempt citations, but only if the inquiry pertained directly to congressional legislation. After Daugherty complained that the Teapot Dome proceedings didn’t meet this standard in 1927, another Supreme Court ruling expanded the power of Congress to issue contempt citations for any legislative purpose, even if that purpose was somewhat vague.

            If the baseball players want to avoid testifying in front of Congress, they will have to ignore the subpoenas and wait until the contempt citations are issued. Once their case is in federal court, they can argue that the subpoenas were unwarranted. (They might try to argue that Congress has no legislative purpose, for example, or that the congressional proceeding will impede the criminal inquiry already underway). But the judicial branch has generally been very reluctant to interfere in Congressional inquiries.

            Members of Congress threaten witnesses with contempt citations from time to time, but actual citations are rare, and convictions are even less common. One of the most recent citations was issued in 1982, after the director of the Environmental Protection Agency, Anne Gorsuch Burford, refused to hand over documents related to the management of the $1.6 billion Superfund program to clean up toxic waste sites. When Congress passed a citation for contempt, the U.S. attorney refused to prosecute, asking a federal court to instead rule the citation unconstitutional. The court refused, but the Reagan administration gave up the documents before Burford ended up in jail.

            In the 1950s, the House Un-American Activities Committee cited a number of people for refusing to give up the names of Communist sympathizers, including Arthur Miller and Pete Seeger. Both were found guilty of contempt, but both appealed, and their convictions were overturned a year later. (The court ruled that the committee had led them to believe that their answers were not required.)”

            Un-American activities. They will likely say that whoever replaces Petraeus can testify to whatever he would have about the CIA involvement in the attack. But they need to learn what Petraeus knew and when he knew it.

          • I know Ulsterman is not the best source, but he has some thoughts: http://theulstermanreport.com/2012/11/09/breaking-cia-director-petraeus-resigns-cites-extramarital-affair/

            “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?”

            How could Barry cite executive privilege over the testimony of someone who doesn’t work for him anymore?

          • there would unlikely be any need for any contempt of congress. Petraeus hasn’t said he wouldn’t testify if called on. We’re jumping the gun. Petreus may be getting out to avoid letting everyone sully his reputation. I don’t think most understand him very well. He’s a very intellligent WAR strategists who loved what he did, and a likely very big Ego in that department. The CIA supposedly were not all that keen working with him .
            It may also be likely that what was being deployed at Benghazi isn’t finished either. Anyone care to take a stab at that. I’m not talking about this cover up, I’m talking about arms deals, spoiled arms deals. Where’d they go . It would have taken only a couple or three hours at most to destroy those buildings at Benghazi, probably less. Why seven hours, what else were they doing….what was Petraeus doing……Bengahazi keeps being called a consulate. It was not, it was a CIA headquarter for something covert.
            I’ve never seen someone so quickly fess up to an affair, especially when no one knew about it. Who was aking him about an affair? This guy has hardly been home in how many years and suddenly he wants to tell us about his private life so quickly. I’m not buying it. Having an affair at this point in Benghazigate is a trivial habit of the uber elite. Yeah, it’s almost an attractive trait of traitors.

    • I heard it too and reported below.

    • I immediately thought of Benghazi and refusing to lie for the Obama administration. If it isn’t true, I feel sorry for his wife having to endure this betrayal. When did he have time for an affair? He was overseas in the war zone for ages. Less than a year as CIA director. He says that it is at his request to resign. Good question if this eliminates him having to go before the Congressional Hearing on Benghazi.

    • Brennan will be considered to take over Petraeus’ position. The Brennan of Passport-gate!

  6. It is only going to get worse, and people voted for it to continue. If thousands misread the ad…who in the city wrote it? Or can’t a thousand people read?

    Chicago – Some In Line For City Job Fair Upset There’s No Hiring On The Spot
    November 9, 2012

    Thousands of people waited in line for hours Friday morning at Kennedy-King College, to attend a job fair hosted by the city of Chicago, but many of those people left upset, when they found out the job fair wasn’t quite what they were expecting.
    ~
    …they were expecting to be interviewed for jobs with the city and its sister agencies, not simply find out how to apply. [They got fliers on how to apply.]

    Mayor Emanuel made an unscheduled stop at the event and talked to job seekers [ guess he was in need of a photo op]
    ~
    Rodney Booker said, “I stood in line for four hours. They better give me a Wal-Mart gift card, or something.” [Sure all if free in Obamaland.]

  7. Breaking – CIA Director Petraeus Submits Letter of Resignation citing extra-marital affair. He has been married 37 years. He apologized for “poor judgment”.

    “My behavior in affair was unacceptable.” “It has been the greatest pleasure to serve.”

    Amazingly, this happens just before the Benghazi investigation.

    • Personally, I don’t believe it. It stinks to high heaven. God help our nation.

    • “He is believed to have feared that his infidelity would eventually become public, and therefore took the decision to quit before he was forced out.

      Extra-marital affairs are considered particularly damaging for intelligence officials due to the confidential nature of their work and the risk they could leak national security secrets.”

      That never hurt Barry none. btw, did Barry pass a background check?

      • Had Petraeus testified, HE WOULD HAVE TOLD THE TRUTH. THAT’S THE KIND OF MAN HIS IS, from all appearances. That’s WHY he had to resign.

    • CIA Director David Petraeus dramatically resigned today after allegedly having an affair with his biographer, it has been claimed. The alleged affair was uncovered after the FBI launched an investigation into the biographer, Paula Broadwell, for allegedly hacking into the former general’s email, NBC News and Slate reported. Broadwell, who researched the book ‘All In’ for three years, had extensive access to Petraeus in Afghanistan. Yet sources told NBC it is unlikely she will face criminal charges after the alleged hacking, stressing that Petraeus himself is under no investigation. [Sure anyone can hack the e-mail account of the CIA Director/former 4 star General and they won't do anything to them...right!]
      ~
      He first met Broadwell six years ago when he addressed students at Harvard University, where she is a researcher, and they eventually got to know each other better during mile-long runs.

      Broadwell, who served in the military for more than a decade, lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her radiologist husband, Dr. Scott Broadwell, and their two young sons, Lucien and Landon. In the biography, Broadwell revealed she first met him during his visit to Harvard in spring 2006 when he was a Commander at Fort Leavenworth. [Hope she told Scott before hearing about it on TV!]

      Broadwell was embedded in Afghanistan with Petraeus for a year between July 2010 and 2011.

      Holly Petraeus heads the Office of Servicemember Affairs in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.…Mrs Petraeus is head of the Office of Servicemember Affairs, a department of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which is responsible for ensuring members of the military are not taken advantage of by banks and other financial businesses. (Hmmm – the office of Fauxcahontas the new lying Senator.).

      • That was sure quick, wasn’t it? I mean, how fast they identified the woman. Almost as if somebody leaked the name to the media to make it sound more plausible. I expected a cover up, but I think it was Krauthammer who said last night that the lamestream will cover this more likely now because it involves sex and sells papers. I don’t see that so far–the prurient interest.

        Liz Cheney filled in for Hannity last night and played a hilariously ironic clip where Hannity had interviewed this woman months ago and asked her “how well” she “got to know the General!” This morning, TV news also reported that she was “embedded” with the General in Afghanistan for a year. I’ll bet. Funny that that seems to be a talking point.

        It’s as likely it’s not even true. What also is very interesting is that they reported in the paper, as your story did also, that they “don’t expect any charges to be filed” against anyone in this FBI investigation. So many questions arise now:

        Why no charges for her if she did break into his email and get hold of classified info? One would think this is treason! Navy SEALS punished for cooperating with a video-gamer and perhaps leaking “classified” info about equipment, but this floozy is not to be charged? Why, because they were allegedly lovers? I’m thinking about how the Russians would send gorgeous spies to get close to Americans. (Huma?) Are they not charging her because then the WHOLE story might come out? I mean, there’d be a prosecution and a defense with cross-examination. It would be public, wouldn’t it? Or shouldn’t it? Or are they not charging her so she goes along with this scam? Maybe she did hack his mail to get info for her book, but didn’t have any affair with him. But for the excuse to work, they needed a woman and she fit the bill. Go along or we WILL charge you?

        When did they tell Barry or anybody else in his administration about this indiscretion, if ever? If not, why not?

        Who initiated the probe of Ms. Broadwell and WHY? How did they find out that she hacked his email, for example?

        Peter King, I think it was, said that Petraeus should still testify. So did Chaffetz (spelling?) We’ll see if he does. That will be telling.

      • http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/10/fbi-probe-petraeus-emails-purportedly-led-to-discovery-extramarital-affair/

        “The FBI investigation that led to the discovery of CIA Director David Petraeus’ extramarital affair and his resignation Friday started when the agency began monitoring Petraeus’ email, Fox News has learned.

        The agency was alerted that biographer Paula Broadwell, with whom Petraeus had the affair, may have had access to his personal email account.

        The investigation began when someone reported suspicious emails allegedly from Broadwell to the FBI. The agency then determined that she allegedly had emailed a number of government employees. The FBI was at one point trying to determine whether any of the employees were being stalked, sources told Fox News. … Source said the FBI investigation ended when the agency determined no criminal acts had been committed.

        • Was it really opposition research paid for by the taxpayers? Banking a scandal for later use? “Some Republicans eyed Petraeus for their party’s 2012 presidential nomination, comparing him to another famous general, Dwight Eisenhower.” http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/09/15056759-david-petraeus-a-battlefield-hero-and-savvy-washington-insider?lite&ocid=msnhp&pos=1

          “Petraeus had been scheduled to testify before the House and Senate Intelligence committees next week about the attack on the Benghazi Consulate, but he will no longer be testifying and its not yet clear if the committees will summon him in the future to testify about the attack. Acting CIA director Michael Morell will testify in his place next week.”

          • Here comes the salacious stuff! This provides the timing for the affair: August 2011 to a few months ago. http://www.inquisitr.com/393891/paula-broadwells-husband-wrote-to-an-advice-column-about-petraeus-affair-report/ Somehow, they find out that perhaps her husband wrote for advice from a newspaper column for the lovelorn supposedly about ethics. Here’s the letter in question, run July 2012:
            My wife is having an affair with a government executive. His role is to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership. (This might seem hyperbolic, but it is not an exaggeration.) I have met with him on several occasions, and he has been gracious. (I doubt if he is aware of my knowledge.) I have watched the affair intensify over the last year, and I have also benefited from his generosity. He is engaged in work that I am passionate about and is absolutely the right person for the job. I strongly feel that exposing the affair will create a major distraction that would adversely impact the success of an important effort. My issue: Should I acknowledge this affair and finally force closure? Should I suffer in silence for the next year or two for a project I feel must succeed? Should I be “true to my heart” and walk away from the entire miserable situation and put the episode behind me? NAME WITHHELD

            Don’t expose the affair in any high-profile way. It would be different if this man’s project was promoting some (contextually hypocritical) family-values platform, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

            How would the advice columnist know what the case is? (Unless, of course, they edited the letter to shorten it.)

          • That is so hokey. A physician would write to a NY paper’s Dear Abby? What is next, that he then perhaps left the newspaper column open on the breakfast table so his wife might see that he knows? So the media will turn to the affair as the “real” news and disregard Benghazi?

            Even worse, they attribute the letter to this couple and it might have nothing to do with them.

          • Exactly my sentiments. What is he, a metrosexual? A doctor who doesn’t know about ethics? I believe they must take courses in ethics!

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Bwah ha -ha re Dear Abby. BTW, she’s dead.

          • As I said, it was hokey…and now after publishing information that was suspect to begin with, the information is now bebunked. About time that stupid journalists get the truth before they publish salacious reports. Fact checking ahead of publishing – what a novel idea.

            Letter to New York Times Magazine not related to Petraeus affair, editor says
            November 11, 2012 Snip

            A letter published by the New York Times Magazine’s Ethicist column in July–which contained details that sound an awful lot like those surrounding the extramarital affair ex-CIA director Gen. David Petraeus admitted to on Friday--was apparently unrelated to the scandal, the magazine’s editor says. [apparently??]

            “This column [...] is NOT about the Petraeus affair, based on our factchecking,” New York Times Magazine editor Hugo Lindgren wrote on Twitter. “Strange, I know.”

            http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/patraeus-letter-york-times-mag-klosterman-214235270.html

          • How could they know if the writer was anonymous?

        • Why was the agency monitoring Petraeus email in the first place? Does the FBI monitor all government employees – like BHO? When did they start the monitoring and why? Was it done around the time of Benghazi? Was the Obama Administration looking for something so they could blackmail Petraeus to get him to go along with their story? Did the Obama administration try to use the affair as leverage to get him to collude on the story and then issue his fake story about the video? Did he finally have a conscience attack and say he would out himself rather than continue with the charade that would come out in the investigation.

          Hopefully, his wife was told before the tabloids sully his reputation. Did he go along with it at first because of not wanting to hurt his wife, then he told her so they couldn’t use it against him? I can see him at first concerned about being outed, but then “honor” made him change his mind. What is the normal MO for the Axelrod crowd to use against people – sex, divorce, or anything to destroy a person’s reputation. Petraeus was wrong, but the timing is weird. He had to be investigated prior to taking the CIA job…so either the administration already knew and was holding the information, or Petraeus didn’t tell about his affair when vetted. To many questions to answer.

  8. Good riddance to a Bilderberg obedient servant,
    too sad, not that he is resigning, but that he gave away his honor.
    Just go.

    • Or else he’s reclaiming it. His letter was quite cryptic about regretting the “circumstances” that caused him to have to leave. Yeah, well, General. WE REGRET THEM, TOO. We hope you still show up and tell the truth at the hearing next week, but something tells me it’s null and void now. That he’ll appear, I mean.

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        Somebody has to love America more than they love themselves. Military, by virtue of what they do, put their lives on the line. Period. Let’s see to whom the General owes his duty. I’ve honestly gotten tired of having hopes built up and then dashed. So I have already accepted that he will not testify. It *would* be the honorable thing to do. But there seem to be no men of valor or honor left- just a bunch of simpering, limp wristed, self serving tin pot dictators who don’t give a $hit about God or country and are enabling this anti……

        As for Boehner- he is one with POtuS. POtuS is his boss, Constitution (sadly) be damned…and that’s what POtuS & Co have done….damned the Constitution and the nation founded upon it. May God forgive us all for allowing it to happen.

    Ralph Peters is catching a whiff of something rotten, too:

    “Retired Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters accused the Obama Administration of holding on to the news of Petraeus’ affair until they needed it – right before he was to go before a Senate committee and get grilled on Benghazi.

    “The timing is too perfect for the Obama administration. Just as the administration claimed it was purely coincidence that the Benghazi consulate was attacked on 9-11. Now it’s purely coincidence that this affair surfaces right after the election but before the intelligence chiefs go to capital hill to get grilled…. It really smells.“

    Ralph Peters smells a Chicago rat.”

  13. Investigation Launched after Classified Info on Benghazi Attack Was Given to Daily Beast Reporter

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/11/investigation-launched-after-classified-info-on-benghazi-attack-was-given-to-new-york-times-reporter-video/

    The SEALS are punished for “leaking” information to a video game maker; the Obama administration leaks classified information to a friendly reporter:
    ” Today, Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY), Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, called on President Obama to identify White House staff members who may have unlawfully disclosed intelligence on the Benghazi attack to journalist Leslie Gelb. Last month Dr. Gelb claimed to have received a White House intelligence briefing on the attack.

    But today Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus denied that Dr. Gelb received any such briefing from their agencies, and announced a preliminary inquiry into this possibly criminal disclosure of classified information.

    In response to today’s letter, Chairman King said: “I welcome Directors Clapper and Petraeus’ initiation of an inquiry into yet another Obama Administration leak of sensitive national security information to the media. If the Intelligence Community did not brief Leslie Gelb on classified information about the Benghazi attack, then who did? I call upon the White House to immediately identify any staff members who may have met with Dr. Gelb since September 11, 2012.”

    On October 8th, Dr. Gelb wrote in The Daily Beast that he received a White House intelligence briefing on the September 11, 2012 attack on the United States Consulate in Benghazi. Dr. Gelb stated he received the same intelligence briefing on the subject as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, which was itself derived from the President’s Daily Brief. Dr. Gelb claimed that the initial “daily intel reports” reviewed by himself, Ambassador Rice and President Obama confirmed “that the Benghazi mob formed more or less on its own, mainly in reaction to the American video cartooning sacred Muslim figures.””

    This must have been before Petraeus resigned.

    Read this prayer from a CEO who had to lay off people in the coal industry because of Obama:

    “Dear Lord:

    The American people have made their choice. They have decided that America must change its course, away from the principals of our Founders. And, away from the idea of individual freedom and individual responsibility. Away from capitalism, economic responsibility, and personal acceptance.

    We are a Country in favor of redistribution, national weakness and reduced standard of living and lower and lower levels of personal freedom.

    My regret, Lord, is that our young people, including those in my own family, never will know what America was like or might have been. They will pay the price in their reduced standard of living and, most especially, reduced freedom.

    The takers outvoted the producers. In response to this, I have turned to my Bible and in II Peter, Chapter 1, verses 4-9 it says, “To faith we are to add goodness; to goodness, knowledge; to knowledge, self control; to self control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, kindness; to brotherly kindness, love.”

    Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build. We ask for your guidance in this drastic time with the drastic decisions that will be made to have any hope of our survival as an American business enterprise.

    Amen.”

  15. On FOX, It was just suggested that blackmail might be involved with Petraeus. Exactly what we were thinking as the story broke.

    Petraeus could voluntarily go to the hearing, or as a private citizen, he might lawyer up.

    • It’s disgusting. This is the only way that the thug is “transparent”. We see through him. I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t. I read at Ulsterman that the “plan” is to mobilize the huge apparatus that Barry used to get elected and community organize it into activism to NUDGE everyone into adopting his policies. Ram them through. Threaten and intimidate. I’m guessing anyone who “opposes” them (like businesses, members of congress, media) will be punished, as Jarrett promised. It will be like when they forced banks and auto companies to go along with his stimulus, etc. He will be playing hard ball with states on Obamacare. I read that MO passed a law forbidding their governor from setting up the health exchanges. But Barry is already planning to break his own law–Obamacare–in order to get around provisions about not giving tax breaks for people who pay premiums in states without those exchanges. Christie is one of the governors who wouldn’t say what he’d do until after the election. It will be a big struggle to see which states stand strong against letting Obama take over the health insurance system in their states.

  16. Rep. Trey Gowdy: Either Petraeus Will Come and Testify to Congress Or He Will Be Subpoenaed (Video)
    Nov. 9

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told Greta Van Susteren tonight that Petraeus will be questioned before Congress despite his resignation today.

    “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.”

    Brussels Bans Annual Christmas Tree Display – It May Offend Muslims
    Saturday, November 10, 2012, 8:53 AM

    Brussels replaced its popular Christmas tree exhibit this year at the city center due to concerns that it may offend the local Muslim population.

    The Right Perspective reported: Government officials in Brussels, Belgium banned Wednesday a popular Christmas tree exhibit out of concerns that the local Muslim population found it “offensive.” An “electronic winter tree,” will take the place of the traditional Christmas Tree and Nativity scene at the city center of Grand Place, reports Brussels News.
    ~
    “I suspect that the reference to the Christian religion was the decisive factor” in replacing the tree, she told reporters. “For a lot of people who are not Christians, the tree there is offensive to them.”

    • Doesn’t the call to prayer offend Christians within listening distance of a mosque? I find many of their customs offensive. Winter tree!??? How ridiculous. I can’t wait to see how they secularize their customs. Talk about cultural insensitivity. Do you see the good people of Brussels rioting, killing, cutting off heads because their religion has been “insulted”? I see Menorahs and Hannukah decorations and they don’t offend me, although I’m not Jewish. Why would they? I truly DO value “diversity”. When will the Mulsims learn TOLERANCE?

  18. Latest White House Petition: Peacefully Grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the USA …Update: Texas Too
    Nov. 9, 2012

    Here’s the latest White House website petition:

    We petition the obama administration to:
    Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.

    As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

    “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

    “…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government…”

    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/peacefully-grant-state-louisiana-withdraw-united-states-america-and-create-its-own-new-government/1wrvtngl

    The petition needs 23,000 more signatures. It looks like they’ll get it.

    UPDATE: There’s a petition for Texas to secede too.

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/11/latest-white-house-petition-peacefully-grant-the-state-of-louisiana-to-withdraw-from-the-usa/

    • Can any Citizen’s signatiure count or do only Louisianans?

      • When I went to the website, it was showing the names of people from all states. Good question, and it would seem to me that only those from the state would be able to vote if it came to that, but that anyone can help them get the numbers they need on a petition. We as citizens should be able to vote on their request and if they want to do it, let them. Louisiana might not be able to survive without being part of the USA, but Texas sure could.

        Reading the Texas information at Free, they want to close off the borders to other states. They are going so far as to make the southern states conservative states and letting the liberals have the rest of the country. That, of course, then worries some whether Texas is big enough to handle the influx of conservatives from the rest of the U.S. who want to live apart from the progressives and will move to TX.

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      As Ive posted many times, Texas is perfect. Governor Perry, this is your moment to save the hard working, ethical, taxpaying citizens for the former U.S.A. and make history. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

  19. Three days after the attack Petraeus gave the far fetched report. Who designed the video story as a cover? In those 3 days someone created the video and protest story.

    Petraeus’s Sudden Resignation
    Lawmakers considered calling for his resignation in late October.
    STEPHEN F. HAYES -Nov 9, 2012

    Congressional Republicans were furious with Petraeus for what they described to THE WEEKLY STANDARD as “misleading” testimony he gave to the House Intelligence Committee on September 14. In that session, Petraeus pointed to a protest over an anti-Islam YouTube video as a primary reason for the attacks on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, despite an abundance intelligence pointing to a preplanned terrorist assault on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex there. Other members of Congress were particularly interested in questioning Petraeus about why crucial details about those attacks were left out of “talking points” the CIA prepared for lawmakers and executive branch officials. Among those details: the existence of a communications intercept between two al Qaeda-linked terrorists discussing the attacks. The level of frustration with the CIA and Petraeus had led several top Republican lawmakers to consider calling for his resignation in late October.

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/petraeus-s-sudden-resignation_662200.html

    • “Friends and associates of Petraeus are telling reporters to take the stated reason for his resignation at “face value,” citing his reputation for integrity.”

      Exactly why I think it’s bogus. He has too much integrity to lie UNDER OATH to Congress.

  20. Thank you, all here for all the information and enlightenment you provide.

  21. In an totally unrelated piece, this sentence below is the reasoning in my head that the voters didn’t vote for Obama in the numbers that were shown allowing him to be re selected. Four days later and I still have not accepted the result.

    One of the major reasons is that when voters are demeaned, ridiculed and insulted they tend to vote in larger numbers than expected against those who demean, ridicule and insult them.

    http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/266787-dear-matt-drudge-stop-the-race-stories

    • Which ought to mean that Romney supporters would vote in larger numbers, because who demeans and insults us? Obama, his wife, his minions.

  22. How interesting is this tidbit about Nate Silver’s “predictions.” Has anyone ever before achieved a polling result that was 100% correct?

    Nate Silver of The New York Times, one of the nation’s most prominent liberal outlets, has achieved enormous credibility, having correctly predicted Obama’s victory and the outcome in 50 out of 50 states.

    USA Today noted, “Silver had been under fire from Republicans for consistently putting Obama’s chance of winning in a range of 60-90 percent.” The FiveThirtyEightblogger turned out to be correct.

    November 9, 2012 Snip

    History teaches us that under in the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin the Red Army was purged of its best officers and men. In fact the purge nearly destroyed the Red Army and it was a real possibility that due to the purge (And killing of these men) that Germany could have destroyed the Soviet Union.

    Now look to today. First Cmdr. Joseph Darlak, captain of the frigate Vandegrift, then, Capt. Owen Honors was relieved of duty Tuesday as commander of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, then General Ham was relieved. There is a massive Reduction in Forces happening in the military. While civilian (union) workers are not being fired, the men and women in uniform are being basically fired.

    Rumors are rampant that there was a Seven Days in May coup d’etat being planned if Obama won. I doubt it, bum Obama is removing all and any opposition to his plans there can be. Rumors are also rampant that this was the last free election we as a nation will ever have. That Obama has no intention of ever giving up power and he will soon find a way to eliminate both Houses of Congress and the Supreme Court. Why not? Already the left has declared him G-d.

  24. A Post-Election Reflection
    Saturday, November 10, 2012

    Maybe you’ve never heard of Joe Pags. I hadn’t until I ran across him on Chicks on the Right. This clip is from his show last week; he’s talking to a – theoretically – conservative Christian caller as she attempts to explain why she voted for Big Guy (spoiler: Pags reveals she has no reason). I encourage you to listen to Every. Single. Minute. It may not necessarily make you feel better, butt it sure will help you grasp the extent of the stupidity in America we need to dispel.

    http://www.michellesmirror.com/2012/11/a-post-election-reflection.html

  25. Read this one! http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/11/fbi-agents-were-outraged-that-obama-decided-to-delay-petraeus-resignation-until-after-the-election/

    “FBI agents on the case were aware that such a decision had been made to hold off on forcing him out until after the election and were outraged.

    “The decision was made to delay the resignation apparently to avoid potential embarrassment to the president before the election,” an FBI source says. “To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.””

    • Petraeus was pursuing her…and the FBI was worried that he might be blackmailed by some foreign intelligence agency or a criminal? Does this even make sense? This was male-female, and they want to make it something like espionage? If they had access to the emails – they know it was just that, an affair. Were they investigating her as well to see if she had connections to spies? Did they wire tap her phones, put surveillance on her? Thousands of emails in a year? Calculate that…365 days in a year…he wrote her 3 or 4 times a day? It would be twice or three times that many written emails if done in the last “several months.” Tell me that isn’t a fabrication. That would be beyond stalking and obsession – that would mean he needs a shrink in a big way.

      “At some point after Petraeus was sworn in as CIA director on Sept. 6, 2011, the woman broke up with him. However, Petraeus continued to pursue her, sending her thousands of emails over the last several months, raising even more questions about his judgment. FBI agents on the case expected that Petraeus would be asked to resign immediately rather than risk the possibility that he could be blackmailed to give intelligence secrets to foreign intelligence agencies or criminals.

      Again, the story is getting way out of hand. The FBI director is Robert Mueller, exactly what was his part in this whole mess? Who was really looking for dirt that sicked them on Petraeus? What else did Petraeus know that the Obama administration was worried about him revealing? What other things was the CIA investigating during that year long time frame when Petraeus was placed in that position so that they needed Petraeus out of the way? Or conversely, what are they up to now?

    • No sooner than I finish writing my comment above, and wondering what else was going on, I read this headline. We have known something was in the works regarding weapons being sold to Turkey to then be given to the rebels in Egypt. Think about this, would a decorated former army general really be involved in selling guns to the likes of Al Qaida? He would arm the very enemies that US soldiers were fighting and he was leading up until a year ago?

      Is this why CIA chief really resigned?
      Gun running to jihadists could dwarf ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal

      by Aaron Klein
      Nov. 10

      Perhaps overlooked is the CIA’s role in purportedly using the Benghazi mission to coordinate U.S. aid to Syrian opposition groups and information those same insurgents include jihadists openly acting under the al-Qaida umbrella.

      http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/is-this-why-cia-chief-really-resigned/

      • Exactly. As we suspected from the time they gave arms to Al Qaeda-connected “rebels” in Libya. Now it’s Syria. I’m telling you–this is what is being hidden, big time.

        The guy whom they keep praising, the guy who REALLY knew, is conveniently deceased. Left for dead. In an attack that still makes no sense. And that would be Stevens, who was liaison in Libya for their “Arab Spring” and was taking the same role in that “mission” in Benghazi on behalf of Syria. Here’s another piece of the puzzle:

        Immediately upon this Benghazigate scandal blowing up in their faces, Hillary runs to a meeting with the Syrian rebel leadership to seek “more moderate” leaders (read: not on the surface connected to AL QAEDA) or else we won’t “help” them anymore. They pretend we never did give them arms, but Stevens was in the process of doing so, if he hadn’t already. Arms to known al Qaeda associated groups! http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/10/31/clinton-syrian-exile-group-not-visible-opposition-leader/ I linked another story when this meeting took place. This story was published on Halloween.

        “Her remarks come as preparations are underway for Arab League-sponsored meetings next week in Doha, Qatar, that will focus on the composition of a post-Assad political leadership in Syria.

        We have recommended names and organizations that we believe should be included in any leadership structure,” Clinton said. …

        Clinton reiterated concerns that opposition forces are not doing enough to stem the tide of Islamic extremists who are exploiting the violent situation on the ground in Syria.

        We also need an opposition that will be on record strongly resisting efforts by extremists to hijack the Syrian revolution,” she said. “There are disturbing reports of extremists going into Syria and attempting to take over what has been a legitimate revolution against a repressive regime for their own purposes.””

        “Sharp disagreements arose Sunday on the first day of a Syrian opposition conference meant to forge a more cohesive leadership that the international community says is necessary before it will boost its support for those trying to overthrow President Bashar Assad. … Failure to reach a deal in Doha could further heighten tensions between Syria’s political opposition and the international community. Opposition leaders feel abandoned by the U.S. and other foreign backers, saying they are not providing the money and weapons the rebels need to defeat Assad in a stalemated civil war. Washington and others say they can’t step up aid unless the opposition stops bickering and establishes a more representative — and unified — leadership.”

        Now what stopped the money and weapons? Why a sudden need to make a “visible” leadership that looks less extremist? Benghazi threw the monkey wrench into the plan. They WERE going to arm those extremist al-Qaeda-connected groups, until the attack brought sunlight onto the activities there.

        What came out of this meeting? OMG! Imagine this: The new leader is a CHRISTIAN (or so he says). What an amazing thing. But his second in command belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-11-10/news/sns-rt-us-syria-doha-sabra-interviewbre8a90dc-20121110_1_syrian-national-council-george-sabra-syrian-opposition

        “The new chief of the main Syrian opposition group overseas said on Saturday he still had hope for more military aid from Western powers in the revolt against the rule of Bashar al-Assad.

        “Now we will push the Arab countries and the international community to change their position. We need a new decision,” George Sabra told Reuters in Doha, where Syrian opposition figures have been meeting for the past week to try to forge a new leadership including activists overseas and in Syria itself.

        He spoke after the Syrian National Council (SNC), formed last year as Damascus tried to crush the protest movement for democratic reform, voted him as its new leader on Friday night.

        “We need military equipment – rockets against tanks and airplanes to protect ourselvesWe hope we will get something soon,” said the 65-year-old Sabra, when asked if the SNC had received any assurances of more military support forthcoming.

        Sabra, a Christian, takes over a body that has come under heavy criticism from international allies for being ineffective in the fight against the Syrian government, but which says the West has let rebels down by not giving more military aid.Sabra rejected suggestions that the body is dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, a moderate Islamist group whose affiliates have come to power in Egypt and Tunisia.

        This is an accusation we hear every day,” he said about the Brotherhood, who account for around 25 percent of the SNC’s general secretariat. “How can we prove to the international community that there is nothing in that? The Brotherhood is part of the SNC, part of our political life in Syria.”

        Sabra also played down the presence of jihadist groups among rebels in Syria, saying such talk was “exaggerated”.

        Al Qaeda-linked militants from Iraq are thought to have joined the fight in Syria, where militants are accused of beheading some of those thought to support Assad and warring against the Alawi sect of Assad and much of the ruling elite.

        Sabra said the SNC would appoint some women to the general secretariat to make up for their failure to win seats.”

        Most likely they’d also say it’s an “exaggerated” conspiracy theory that Stevens was giving arms to these Al Qaeda-associated and Muslim Brotherhood-associated “rebels” until it all went sideways. Can’t you imagine the scrambling?

        Here Huma’s pal are waiting for those weapons, especially those ANTI-AIRCRAFT RPGs that Doherty and Woods were rounding up in Libya (repurchasing, the word was) in order, most likely, to send them via Turkey to the al-Qaeda extremists in Syria. But Benghazi screwed that. With everybody looking, is it possible for Hillary and Barry to run those weapons NOW? Nope. So what to do?

        Make it APPEAR on the surface that the “visible” face of the Syrian opposition is NOT extremist, NOT Islamist, NOT even Muslim. Nope! The leader is (he says) a Christian. Well, that makes two: Barry and Sabra.

        Coincidence? I think not. NOW, when they give the aid and the weapons (RPGs, included), they can say they’re giving it to a CHRISTIAN-led group.

        They really and truly do think We the People are STUPID.

        • I do believe that having the US arming our enemies, Al Qaida, is TREASON. What do you think our military will think when they find out that they are fighting an enemy that their commander in chief is arming? Who is going to level those charges?

          A Christian led group in Muslim Brotherhood dominated Syria. Oh sure, that is as believable as Obama being eligible to be POTUS. I do like the way Rosemary puts it… POtuS.

  26. Quote of the Day

    “I told you Ann, nobody cares anymore. Put the dog on top of the car and let’s go.”

    - Mitt

  27. Kessler said on FOX that he knew about FBI probe in Oct. and wrote a story about it then. He has his sources. When a top official in government is being investigated, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is supposed to be informed. Rep. Peter King said he wasn’t told. The investigation was started last spring, yet the appropriate authorities were not told. [Another cover-up - why were they checking out Petraeus in the spring? Did Obama and thugs know about it?]

    Kessler: FBI Investigation Led to Petraeus Resignation
    Friday, 09 Nov 2012 04:43 PM Snips

    The resignation of David H. Petraeus as CIA director followed an FBI investigation of many months, raising the question of why he was not forced out until after the election.
    ~
    The investigation began last spring, but the FBI then pored over his emails when he was stationed in Afghanistan.
    ~
    Given his top secret clearance and the fact that Petraeus is married, the FBI continued to investigate and intercept Petraeus’ email exchanges with the woman. The emails include sexually explicit references to such items as sex under a desk. [FBI thought a reference to sex under the desk meant something covert or corruption - like something under the table was occurring! - said Kessler on FOX]

    Such a relationship is a breach of top secret security requirements and could have compromised Petraeus. [An understatement.. he was compromised, silly]

    At some point after Petraeus was sworn in as CIA director on Sept. 6, 2011, the woman broke up with him. However, Petraeus continued to pursue her, sending her thousands of emails over the last several months, raising even more questions about his judgment.

    Aha…this is what they will use …” In addition, his pursuit of the woman could have distracted him as the CIA was giving Congress reports on the attack on the Benghazi consulate on Sept. 11.” [Translation...He was so distracted by his affair that his report was fabricated! Can you see that? The guy was sex crazed, head over heels, so infatuated he couldn't think straight! He may be joining Jesse Jackson at Mayo shortly! Note, they don't say if she was responding to his pursuit. Could she claim harassment or is that next?]

    • http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/7482356/General-David-Petraeus-tipped-as-Republican-2012-presidential-candidate.html
      “The shrewd and articulate military commander, credited with turning around the Iraq war, will deliver a speech at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire next week, a traditional staging post in the state where the first presidential primaries are held every four years. Each of the last eight presidents has spoken at the college on their way to victory.

      It will be the latest in a series of speaking engagements where the head of the US Central Command region, which covers the Middle East and Central Asia, has veered well into foreign policy discussion and often faced questions about his political ambition.

      His stock response is the same as any potential aspirant at this early stage – a flat no. But for someone who professes to have no interest in running for president he has a way of talking about it even when he hasn’t been asked directly.” MARCH 2010.

      At that point, he would have been a formidable opponent. A few months later, in June, Barry appointed him to McChrystal’s post as Commander of the International Security Assistance Force. In Sept. 2011, he became head of CIA. I remember us discussing at the time that maybe his promotion was to keep him from running for POTUS.

      http://www.christianpost.com/news/petraeus-being-considered-as-romney-running-mate-says-obama-79645/

      David Petraeus, the current director of the Central Intelligence Agency and a highly decorated four-star general, is said to be under consideration as former Gov. Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate as he accepts the GOP nomination later this month. Interestingly, the origin of this information points back to President Obama.

      Drudge Report first reported the story Tuesday afternoon, stating that President Obama told a top fundraiser that Petraeus is being vetted by the Romney campaign for the number two spot. “The president wasn’t joking,” the anonymous fundraiser told Drudge.

      Petraeus, a West Point graduate who had a stellar military career before being tapped by Obama to head the CIA, has had his name tossed by the inside Washington crowd as a possible running mate for several weeks, but few considered him to be on the campaign’s short list.” AUGUST 2012

      Would you think that had Romney chosen Petraeus they would already have the opposition research done and saved that affair for the Oct. surprise? Isn’t it curious that BARRY broke the story about Romney considering Petraeus?

      They’re saying he began the affair with Broadwell in August 2011, the month before he became CIA chief. It ended only a few months ago. Now their official story becomes that the FBI investigation into these harassing emails sent to another woman began “several months ago.” How many months ago would be key. Would it perhaps be, about August 2012, when Barry was learning that Romney might tap Petraeus for the VP spot? Enquiring minds want to know. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/11/us/fbi-said-to-have-stumbled-into-news-of-david-petraeus-affair.html?hp&_r=0

      The thing is: Anything we read about how this all went down most likely will be lies, obfuscation, and spin. We’re supposed to believe that the FBI DID tell the “White House” (but not Barry) on ELECTION DAY, around 5 p.m. Barry himself didn’t learn about it until the next day. Why are they coming up with this unbelievable timeline? Election day? Why did they wait until after the polls were closing on election day? So they can say they didn’t hide it until the election was OVER? (Only hours later, though!)

    • I’m reading comments as they were submitted, so forgive me if I repeat what somebody else has said already, but this storyline doesn’t match the “official” tale being told in the lamestream by, of course, “anonymous” sources. This story says the investigation started “last spring”. That would not be “several months ago” by my reckoning, which is what the NY Times said. Another story said their affair ended “several months ago”. This story says it ended “at some point” after Sept. 2011, when he was sworn in as CIA director, which could be almost a year ago. This story says they asked for his resignation; the original tall tale said he went to Barry and told him about the affair and said he wanted to resign. “Still, the White House, with concurrence by the FBI and Justice Department, held off on asking for Petraeus’ resignation until after the election. His resignation occurred three days after the election, avoiding the possibility that Obama’s ill-fated appointment of Petraeus could become an issue in the election.” That also differs from the “official” story, which is that Barry (or the WH) didn’t know about the affair or any possibility of any resignation until evening on election day itself. If Kessler wrote about this in October, then where’s that story?

      • Well isn’t that just special. Tales of the tall tales by this white house. What else is new? Like that Senator said , makes no difference if he had an affair….the ISSUE is will he come on his own and testify or will they have to supoeno him. Congress of all people could care less about this guy’s private problems, they want some answers.

        • At least some in congress want some answers.

          Eric Cantor, the House majority leader, said Saturday an F.B.I. employee whom his staff described as a whistle-blower told him about Mr. Petraeus’s affair and a possible security breach in late October, which was after the investigation had begun.

          “I was contacted by an F.B.I. employee concerned that sensitive, classified information may have been compromised and made certain Director Mueller was aware of these serious allegations and the potential risk to our national security,” Mr. Cantor said in a statement.

          Mr. Cantor talked to the person after being told by Representative Dave Reichert, Republican of Washington, that a whistle-blower wanted to speak to someone in the Congressional leadership about a national security concern. On Oct. 31, his chief of staff, Steve Stombres, called the F.B.I. to tell them about the call.

          “They took the information,” said Doug Heye, Mr. Cantor’s deputy chief of staff, “and gave the standard answer: they were not able to confirm or deny any investigation, but said that all necessary steps were being taken to make sure no confidential information was at risk.” …

          F.B.I. agents spoke with the C.I.A. director about two weeks ago, and Mr. Petraeus learned in the discussion, if he was not already aware, that they knew of his affair with Ms. Broadwell, the official said.”

          About two weeks ago? That would be about the time that Republicans in the House were told by a whistle blower about this affair.

      • I looked for a story by Kessler in October and didn’t find one that addresses the FBI involvement, but I might have missed finding it too.

    • Ron Kessler on Petraeus Resignation: There Are Several Cover-ups Going On

      • Wheels within wheels. Who’s telling the truth? Petraeus’s allies or this guy? He’s criticizing Obama for holding off telling this story before the election, BUT he’s disputing the business about Broadwell threatening another woman. So they want us to believe that Petraeus was the stalker, the harasser, instead of Broadwell, as per the story told by the woman who asked the FBI to investigate Broadwell’s emails (not Petraeus’s).

        Now this reporter is saying that the FBI stumbled across the affair when they were looking at Petraeus’s MILITARY email account and thought doing something “under the desk” meant some kind of political corruption. SO WHY WERE THEY READING PETRAEUS’S EMAIL IN THE FIRST PLACE? Is this normal practice for the FBI to read the “military” emails of the CIA chief? Petraeus was at CIA. Why would the FBI read his email, military, personal, or CIA? Did they have a warrant? It makes no sense.

        It does make sense if they read Petraeus’s emails TO Broadwell by reading HER email account, which was necessary for them to read in order to investigate the complaint that the harassed woman made about Broadwell. That rings more true than for us to believe that Petraeus would send “thousands” of emails from his MILITARY account to this woman, trying to get her back, when he probably knows, as the CIA director, that that account isn’t secure. How stupid would he have to be? I see no indication the man is stupid.

        Is she a good little ex-soldier, ex-intel officer, or whatever the hell she is/was? Her celeb status reminds me very much of Valerie Plame, who probably WOULD NOT like a boss like Petraeus.

    • The Twists and Turns….now someone else is involved.

      Official: Woman complained of harassing e-mails from Petraeus’ biographer
      By Mariano Castillo and Dana Ford, CNN
      Sun November 11, 2012 Snips

      The affair that brought an end to David Petraeus’ tenure as CIA director came to light during an FBI investigation into a complaint that his biographer Paula Broadwell was sending harassing e-mails to another woman close to him, a U.S. official said Saturday. During the investigation, other communications surfaced between Petraeus and Broadwell, a married mother of two, according to the official.

      The official did not identify the woman who made the initial complaint and did not know the nature of her relationship with Petraeus.

      The FBI interviewed Petraeus in the course of its inquiry, said the official, who stressed that the CIA director was never the target of the investigation and his communications were never compromised. The official did not know whether Broadwell was interviewed.

      The official did not have an exact timeframe for the investigation and could not say if it is still ongoing.

      The Obama administration first learned of the affair in a phone call from the FBI to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper at 5 p.m. on election night, [Tuesday] according to a senior U.S. intelligence official.
      ~
      Petraeus met with Obama on Thursday to offer his resignation and explain the circumstances behind it, according to a senior administration official. The president accepted Petraeus’ resignation during a phone call Friday, the official said.
