My GF and i have been talking about this a lot. Do you have to resign now if you have an affair/ Do reular people lose their jobs when they have an affair?

I thought it was against the USMCJ for officers to have affairs with people under them...pun intended...but
GF countered that he's in the CIA now...tough call.

What'ya think?

Uh, You do know Obama is President, right? This scandal is as much about his incompetence as anything else. Obie is in charge of everything. He is usually too drunk or high to take part, but he is responsible for the CIA, FBI, military, everything. There is no separation. We re elected the same half wit we elected in 2008, and you want to pretend you will have a different outcome. Poor stupid Democrats.

Obama never taught anything. He lied about almost everything. He was given the Law School position because of Affirmative action. He was an assistant law professor. You people believe all his bullshit. That is sad.

We are close. Obama must be sweating like a pig in a forest fire. They are nipping at his heals now. Why did Patreaus change his story between the 11th and the 14th to parrot Obama's lies? They want to know.
It had to come from Axlerod, Hillary, Obama, or Eric Holder. Somebody got to him. When Patreuas is subpenaed and testifies we will hear a cry from democrats like never ever before heard as Obama gets it in the end. Literally.
I can feel the slimy democrats sweat through there own teeth as they wish to deny that Obama will fry.

For those keeping track, that's 3 Generals (Ham, Allen, Ward), 1 Admiral (Gaouette), and 1 CIA Director in the past 30 days. All in positions to have information on Benghazi. Nothing to see here folks, move right along

Let me see if I have this right. In two days the FBI and the intellegence community have found all this information out about Operation Nookie, the emails and the participants, and yet after two years we have virtually nothing about Fast and Furious. Then there is our six week old killing of four Americans including an Ambassador and we can find out nothing. Does this not reak of diversion and cover ups?
The LSM is entirely corrupt. Worthless. I revel in their decreasing readership and viewers.

Are you really this dumb? Why are you still obsessed with blaming Obama for Fast and Furious? That failure took place mostly at the local level, in the Arizona area.
Lying sack of offal, 10 mins. tonight on CBS on who might be boinking who, not one reference to Bengazi and BO's passel of lies.
No wonder libs are so ignorant.

What really "stinks" here is the obsession of the Radical Right with finding a scandal they can pin on Obama, and use to prevent him from accomplishing anything in his second term. You thugs want another Monicagate, and you're not getting one.
C'mon...try putting America first, for a change...
Bankruptcy isn't accomplishing anything in our opinion. Business hates Obama and his anti business policies, dumbrowski.

That's almost correct, but not quite complete.
Now we are expected to believe that the attack on Benghazi was not caused by Libyan reaction to a movie, but by Petreaus extra-marital affair!
Anything but scumbag in chief Obumbles malfeasance, dereliction of duty and incompetence.

Liar. Moron. Scubag.
Violence broke out across the Muslim world when the 'movie' trailer came to light mocking Muhammed. That's a FACT.
That violence was used as cover by a terrorist group in Libya to attack our Consulate. FACT.
The Administration was wrong about the latter fact, but it was later corrected. FACT.
NO ONE has said it was 'caused by Petraeu' extramarital affair." Only a Rightie would be that stupid and dishonest.
Why are you taking the terrorists' side?
That's why it happened on the 11th, right dufus?

I don't see how this can possibly be a good thing at this time, What the hell is the government doing? Looks like a purge to me.
Those two X military who died in Benghazi, died because unlike their
"Superiors" ( and i use that term loosely)... they know you dont leave your brother dying in the field ... even if that means disobeying and order. Of course the attorneys in charge of the country don't understand that.

Investigating it for months..... And waiting for just the right moment to use the information. You can't see it can you?

Funny how this treasonous mess was successfully hidden from the public by the MSM until AFTER the election.

I've also heard the term "fiscal cliff" more in the past week than the entire 10 months preceding the election.

But in the end Obama will be caught conspiring in the cover up. We all know it's coming. And what a day that will be.

So, why did Patraeus parrot Obama's bullcrap story about a silly movie on Sept. 14th When we all know he knew better? THAT, is the question. Another question is,'"Were they torturing prisoners in the compound with Obama's blessing?" There seems to be evidence of that and that would be very embarrassing right before the election. If so, did Obama co-erce Patreaus to keep it quiet and blame a silly movie for the attack? Or was Patreaus co-erced by Obama to blame it on a silly movie because he didn't want a full blown terrorist attack blowing up in his face right before the election? I think we are getting close. The cover-up is starting to be uncovered.

Your spouting hate that are lies not facts. Grow up and grow a brain and speak intelligently about facts when they are presented. The love fest and scandal involves republicans that Eric Cantor knew about but covered it up. We know darn well they are not protecting the president so what happened is a wait to be revealed. Why would a general expose top secrets to his lover--no one cares about the love tryst as much as top secrets that Petreaus may have exposed that are critical to lives. This is the real issues.
