    Petraeus sex scandal Krauthammer: Petraeus Sex Scandal Will Drive Media Interest In Benghazi ​



    11/09/2012
    By: Jeff Poor


    On Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said the resignation of CIA director David Petraeus was a regrettable situation that might ultimately help shed light on the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya.

    “We will unravel all the threads of this in time,” Krauthammer said. “We’re just in the first few hours, but I think it’s worth noting what we do know. This is the end of a career of a truly great American. He did something that hadn’t been done by a general since the Inchon landing in the Korean War, when MacArthur by a maneuver managed to save a war that was being lost and save South Korea.”

    “No one had done anything like that until David Petraeus did that in 2007 and 2008 in Iraq,” Krauthammer continued. “That was a lost war. It was headed for chaos, civil war, bloodshed and unending trouble for us. And he pulled off a surge that rescued the war. What happened after in Iraq and what happened after in Korea are other stories, but that is undeniable. It is one of the great achievements, and he pulled it off. He distinguished himself in Afghanistan. And whatever happens and whatever we learn, this is a real tragedy.”

    They are going to blame "BetrayUs" for everything. We're supposed to believe that Obama was completely ignorant and was told to lie about the demonstrators for a couple weeks. Obama didn't get any briefing regarding the many attacks and threats in the six months prior to the 9/11 attack. He didn't know the drones were recording the whole attack. He didn't know more security was requested. He didn't know the troops on the ground were asking for backup. He didn't know al Qaeda was gaining ground and he thought they were really disabled. Yea, he knew nothing because he skipped briefings and no one told him a damn thing. He and Hillary need to conduct lengthy investigations before they can take action when we're attacked.

    Probably. I'm hoping the General quit so he could tell all.

    Ya think? It'll just drive NaziCon conspiracy theory interest. Sane people are awaiting the final investigative report.
