    Petraeus Throws Obama Under the Bus | The Weekly Standard

    Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”




    So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.

    It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?

    the CIA was responsible for security inside of Libya, where were their own personnel when the consulate was attacked ?

    Petraeus is in fact being relieved from command and the affair is simply an easier way out than a public hearing where the CIA would be held responsible for the failure to protect American citizens that would end with Petraeus's likely dismissal.

    Typical dumbfuck liberal talking about stuff over its head.

    The CIA is not responsible for the security of a State Department facility, you fucking moron.

    The CIA was doing behind the scenes work in support of the State Department, but they are not responsible for security besides gathering intel and fighting terrorists where they can.

    Guarding the State Department facilities is the responsibility of (drumroll)....the State Department.

    :lol:

    William Kristol has finally become unhinged!!!

    I can't wait for the CIA or another Bush admin official to come out and side with the Obama admin again, as have others. :clap2:

    FOX News and those like Kristol on the deck of the Good Ship Wingnut are lost in a storm of their own making, while below decks in steerage, the tools at USMB are wildly flailing about and screaming just to hear their own voices above the roars of celebration by the rest of America

    The General's troubles started a long time ago as the FBI was investigating attempts to break into his email account.

    One has nothing to do with the other

    Uhh, no.

    The State Department is responsible for the security of embassies and ambassadors.

    Idiot.
