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.
Obama and team put Patreaus between a rock and a hard spot. He had no place to turn and saw no positive outcome so he bit the bullet for a team he detests. Personally, I wish that he had not and taken all the lumps that Obama dishes out and then came out swinging against all Obama negatives. Obama is still going after him and wants to totally destroy him to a total insignificant before the rest of the story surfaces. Time for the game of hardball to commence without Petreaus handle on it.

What an opportunity for Obama. He will again pick his OWN to head up KEY positions and now he will be able to SHUT up those that disagree with him in the Military hierarchy. Oh, these slime balls are really thinking ahead to totally control all aspects of life in America. Shhhhhh, big brother is everywhere.

No doubt Petraeus was ordered and possibly threatened by this administration to keep his mouth shut until after the election.

Hopefully he hasn't been scared to the point of silence by these thugs. We'll see later this week.

One thing is for sure - if this was a republican president/administration, impeachment proceedings would already be in motion.

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.
Hey Bob, you speak some truths without realizing them. "so what happened is a wait to be revealed." and "Why would a general expose top secrets to his lover--no one cares about the love tryst as top secrets that Petreaus may have exposed that are critical to lives. This is the real issue."
Good questions. Now what could those top secrets be, since Petreaus was directly involved in what went down in Lybia ? What is still to come out that Obama and team are driving now to totally destroy the reputation of Petreaus so as to discredit secrets that would damage Obama to the point of impeachment proceedings ?
Could it be that the top secrets that Obama is striving to cover up involves his own involvement in the decision making that caused the deaths of Americans ?
It's a total coverup and Obama is now on a downward spiral.

Anyone with half a brain can clearly see the sex scandel is a cover-up for the Bengazi massacre. It's no coincidence that everytime the government is caught up in something like this some "new" sex scandel is used to take the attention off of the REAL issue. Wow...they think we are all dumb fools, but some of us ARE awake and can see clearly what is really happening. This government is a complete joke....it's just sickening...makes me want to throw up!

Obama and the Chicago Thugs have no conscience and no boundaries.

They AND the mainstream media will go to any length to protect their power.

If these criminals still are holding something over his head, watch Petraeus squirm and try and sell the "video defense" yet again.

The facts regarding the Benghazi embassy attack.

1. There were four murdered Americans (or bumps in the road according to Obama.)

2. We've been lied to repeatedly by this administration.

Sure would be nice if you repubs wanted to know why so many died in Iraq for the "catastrophic success" for the botched search for WMD in Iraq.

Now you idiots want to make a scandal out of our enemy attacking our State Dept members. Keep digging.

In the meantime, you accept all the lies Bush told you about Mobile Chem Labs and WMD in Iraq.

You guys find that "Mobile Chem Lab" yet? I guess somehow, while tracking it on Google Maps via satellite, it got away.
