    Krauthammer: White House 'Held Affair Over Petraeus's Head' For Favorable Testimony On Benghazi


    By Noel Sheppard
    November 13, 2012

    Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday said the White House used David Petraeus’s affair to get the CIA director to give testimony about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that was in line with the administration’s position on the matter.

    Appearing on Fox News's Special Report, Krauthammer said, "The sword was lowered on Election Day" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

    CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the really shocking news today was that General Petraeus thought and hoped he could keep his job. He thought that it might and it would be kept secret, and that he could stay in his position. I think what that tells us is really important. It meant that he understood that the FBI obviously knew what was going on. He was hoping that those administration officials would not disclose what had happened, and therefore hoping that he would keep his job. And that meant that he understood that his job, his reputation, his legacy, his whole celebrated life was in the hands of the administration, and he expected they would protect him by keeping it quiet.

    Glenn Beck said the same thing. Prior to the public release of any information about the affair, Beck reported that Petraeus was placed in his position because the administration had something to hold over his head and therefore could control him if anything went wrong (at the time Beck did not know WHAT information the administration could use against Patreaus). Beck warned that something in Petraeus's background would be used to force him to protect the administration from the fallout from the Benghazi mess.

    A lot of people hate Beck (a lot of people love him, too), but he knows what is going on. Here is an excellent video that explains it all.

    And life inside the right wing bubble moves on. They don't seem to be learning from their past mistakes are they? Can't find a narrative, make one up.

    Oh bullshit.

    The White House didn't even know about the affair. It was republicans that knew first..and tried to stir up a hornet's nest about it.

    The right wing is quickly becoming a very poorly written cartoon.
