    Re: CIA director Gen. Petraeus resigns over affair

    Petraeus was an *******. I told you that a long time ago.

    He was such a careerist he married the butt-ugly daughter of one of his commanding officers at West Point, presumably to get ahead, cuz nobody would want to **** her if there wasn't something in it for them.

    Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy.
    boisterous hubris, arrogance, self deception, conspiracy, mud slinging mixed with a heavy dose of self righteousness.

    Well if the affair was over five months ago, this is interesting timing for the Other Woman to be all in a huff over the Other Other Woman. Here's an interview she did with Jon Stewart back in January, and it's kind of amazing to watch in light of subsequent revelations. Also her husband appears on the show toward the end.

    Nah.

    The General was closing in on the 9-11 conspiracy, having late night access to the "files."

    So the guys with stuff to lose contracted with about a thousand conspirators and conjured up a remote controlled robot complete with homing devices and girly parts, and the trap was set, getting her to Afghanistan under cover, where they oiled her up and let "computer programs, entrap the horny guy.

    Re: CIA director Gen. Petraeus resigns over affair

    Doesn't everybody resign at the end of the first term, after the last cabinate meeting?

    It's a ceremonial thing, but I believe that everyone submits their resignation, saving the President embarrassment of having to let people go.

    Then he brings back whomever he wishes.

    Apparently another General who is running the Afghan War is now tied to the whistleblower woman in Tampa.

    so glad Florida can once again contribute to this country's insanity.

    Re: CIA director Gen. Petraeus resigns over affair

    Also the FBI guy investigating the emails is now caught up in the scandal, accused of sending pics of himself to one of the women? heh heh.

    The CIA disputes Broadwell's claim that there is a secret CIA prison located in Benghazi. This whole thing is about a video. Broadwell, Kelley, Petraeus and the FBI guy watching the Muslim video together.

    How can he run the war while sending 30000 e-mails, to that lady.

    Another salacious story the media loves to sink its teeth into.

    Just let him resign and move on.

    We have bigger fish to fry.

    "Stay Out," means what is says General.
    As I've noted for years, there is only one right-wing joke and it's variations.

    It goes "Hey, would you get a load of (insert object of derision here), aren't they stupid? Har har har!"

    It's why Fox, for all it's efforts, can't come up with a right-wing competitor for The Daily Show. Laughing at stupid conservatives and their fellow travellers gets boring to the non-hardcore but they, like you, have nothing else.

    Why do you think 99% of all artists are left-wing?

    Ooh ooh, I know.

    Because they understand the human condition.

    They don't see the world as a good cowboy in all white vs a bad cowboy in all black.

    They see gray areas and understand that gray areas make human life compelling.

    Not only that, they understand that ideology is a function of personality, not the other way around.

    Like Macchiavelli said, "Anyone who studies present and ancient affairs will easily see how in all cities and all peoples there still exist, and have always existed, the same desires and passions. Thus, it is an easy matter for him who carefully examines past events to foresee future events in a republic and to apply the remedies employed by the ancients, or, if old remedies cannot be found, to devise new ones based upon the similarity of the events. But since these matters are neglected or not understood by those who read, or, if understood, remain unknown to those who govern, the result is that the same problems always exist in every era."

    Re: CIA director Gen. Petraeus resigns over affair

    Hmm. Generals intervening in a child custody dispute? I was expecting a little more CIA/military intrigue, not Daddy Day Care.

    WASHINGTON -- Both Gen. David Petraeus and Gen. John Allen intervened in the same nasty child custody battle involving Natalie Khawam, the “psychologically unstable” twin sister of Jill Kelley, whose bombshell claims of being threatened by Petraeus' lover led to the top spy’s resignation last week, the Post has learned. Allen, the four-star general top commander in Afghanistan, was revealed last night to have exchanged thousands of pages of of emails with Kelley, who went to the feds after receiving threatening e-mails from Paula Broadwell, the married mistress of Petraeus.

    Both Petraeus and Allen apparently decided intervene in the same nasty court fight over a four year old, siding with the mother who, according to court documents, took her son to Florida when he was four months old after a heated argument. The generals' letters to the court — written in the past two months — supported a motion to overturn a ruling made nearly a year earlier by a judge who resoundingly denied custody to Khawam, because of serious reservations about her honesty and mental stability, court records show.
