Will Patraeus have Obama's ass on a platter today? I not, we will just have to wait a little bit longer. People died .Obama Lied. Even our majority of stupid people that elected Obama know it.
All Patraeus has to say is that Obama pressured him to lie about the silly movie. Game Over.

A Spy Speaks Out
Former Top CIA Official Tyler Drumheller On "Faulty" Intelligence Claims /
http://tinyurl.com/rle4x / April 23, 2006

"The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy."

Tyler Drumheller CIA Ret.

(CBS) When no weapons of mass destruction surfaced in Iraq, President Bush insisted that all those WMD claims before the war were the result of faulty intelligence. But a former top CIA official, Tyler Drumheller — a 26-year veteran of the agency — has decided to do something CIA officials at his level almost never do: Speak out.

He tells correspondent Ed Bradley the real failure was not in the intelligence community but in the White House. He says he saw how the Bush administration, time and again, welcomed intelligence that fit the president's determination to go to war and turned a blind eye to intelligence that did not.

Ex-CIA Official Paul Pillar Faults Use of Data on Iraq
Intelligence 'Misused' to Justify War, He Says
February 10, 2006 / http://tinyurl.com/azl6w

The former CIA official who coordinated U.S. intelligence on the Middle East until last year has accused the Bush administration of "cherry-picking" intelligence on Iraq to justify a decision it had already reached to go to war, and of ignoring warnings that the country could easily fall into violence and chaos after an invasion to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

Paul R Pillar's critique is one of the most severe indictments of White House actions by a former Bush official since Richard C. Clarke, a former National Security Council staff member, went public with his criticism of the administration's handling of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and its failure to deal with the terrorist threat beforehand.

It is also the first time that such a senior intelligence officer has so directly and publicly condemned the administration's handling of intelligence.

The reasoning behind Smith-Mundt was that Congress wanted to be certain that a United States government agency could not brainwash our own citizens as Hitler had done in Germany.

I think Petraeus came OUT of the 'affair closet' BECAUSE someone threatened to OUT his affair in order to keep HIS SILENCE on Benghazi. <blackmail>

It takes a brave man to publically admit he WAS having an affair AND to choose to leave his job at the CIA.

Why ELSE would a man who was ALREADY DONE with the affair (ended in July) publically admit he was wrong?

Someone was using his affair as LEVERAGE for Petraeus to keep silent on Benghazi, ya think?

I would love to see Petraeus come out publicly. However we know this will not happen.

Agreeing to these closed door hearings where the people will not get to see one thing or hear one thing shows how much of a coward this man is.

I look at it this way. The CIA and the Obama administration will probably have you killed anyways for what you know. Look at what the government did to the DC madam after she publicly said she would not commit suicide. Boom, she died, cause of death issued by the government: suicide.

So what does he have left to lose?

1. Marriage? Gone
2. Reputation? Gone
3. Rank? Gone
4. Pride? Gone
5. Life? Could be argued, but, I think they will kill him anyways and say it was suicide. So then........Gone.

And when a person has nothing left to lose, they lose it.

But instead of fighting back, he hides behind closed doors.

He is a coward.

Obamas Faked Outrage...

He called out McCain and Graham:“When they go after the U.N. ambassador apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me.”

The obvious disconnect in Obama’s rant, is: If Ms. Rice “had nothing to do with Benghazi,” why in the hell was she sent to the Sunday news show circuit by the president?

Why not Hillary Clinton or other knowledgeable spokesperson from the State Department or perhaps some one from the CIA?

Indeed, it was Obama who made Ms. Rice a target by sending her on a mission for which she was ill-prepared, other than being fed misleading (at best) talking points by an administration trying to stave off disaster just weeks before a national election.

Even more disconcerting is Obama’s “outrage,” given the fact that four innocent American lives were lost during the attack!

Again, four American lives were lost! THAT IS THE OUTRAGE, Mr. President!

The American people have a right to know exactly what happened, how our government behaved, and who and what is to blame for the failures in Benghazi!

He set Rice up, and then said it is not her fault, because she is a girl.
