David Petraeus resigns

Original post made by James, Palo Verde, on Nov 9, 2012

Patraeus has been a very good militaty leader. He says he had an extramarital affair. Was this affair known of by the White House, especially during the Libya scandal? Patraeus seemed to accept being thrown under the bus by Obama.

Pretty shocking stuff, not becasue of his marital issues, but because he was thinking about the leverage of his personal issues. Congressional hearings are upcomming about Libya, and he is not being forced to testify, because he resigned.

Very fishy.

Fishy indeed. And even more fishy that it happened today rather than last week (before the election). I am sure that the affair wasn't something that conveniently happened just in the past few days.

An affair is a breach of his security clearance

But Fox news doesn't have Karl Rove around to UNSKEW polls, so it's time to put the tin foil hats on and claim the President ELECT is a Muslim, errrr, no, a socialist, ummmm,, guess not, how about...

Throwing a hero under the bus?!!??

So sad. Fox is going through the seven stages of grief and grasping at straws.

Turn off the Fox, Sean, errr, Gar... ehhh, James.

So sad.
