Charles Krauthammer: Petraeus Thought He Could Keep His Job … White House ‘Held Affair Over Petraeus’s Head’ For Favorable Testimony On Benghazi

QUID PRO QUO?  So why does a sex scandal make it impossible for a CIA director like General David Petraeus to keep his job? Being black mailed and pressured to do and say things that are not true of course. But what happens when the blackmail and pressure comes from within, like the White House?

Charles Krauthammer has once again got it 100% correct. Appearing on Fox News’s Special Report, Krauthammer stated that the Obama White House used David Petraeus’s affair to get the CIA director to give favorable testimony about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Petraeus thought he could keep his job after he knew he was being investigated for his “extramarital affair” and most likely went before the Congressional hearing and told a story to save his job by siding with the Obama administration ridiculous story that the attack was the result of a video tape. David Petraeus, of all people, who is an expert on terrorism knew better. But when some one has your professional career in their hands … he followed the Obama party line.

“His job, his reputation, his legacy, his whole celebrated life was in the hands of the administration, and he expected they would protect him by keeping it quiet.”

Transcript from News Busters:

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the really shocking news today was that General Petraeus thought and hoped he could keep his job. He thought that it might and it would be kept secret, and that he could stay in his position. I think what that tells us is really important. It meant that he understood that the FBI obviously knew what was going on. He was hoping that those administration officials would not disclose what had happened, and therefore hoping that he would keep his job. And that meant that he understood that his job, his reputation, his legacy, his whole celebrated life was in the hands of the administration, and he expected they would protect him by keeping it quiet.

And that brings us to the ultimate issue, and that is his testimony on September 13. That’s the thing that connects the two scandals, and that’s the only thing that makes the sex scandal relevant. Otherwise it would be an exercise in sensationalism and voyeurism and nothing else. The reason it’s important is here’s a man who knows the administration holds his fate in its hands, and he gives testimony completely at variance with what the Secretary of Defense had said the day before, at variance with what he’d heard from his station chief in Tripoli, and with everything that we had heard. Was he influenced by the fact that he knew his fate was held by people within the administration at that time?

KRAUTHAMMER: Of course it was being held over Petraeus’s head, and the sword was lowered on Election Day. You don’t have to be a cynic to see that as the ultimate in cynicism. As long as they needed him to give the administration line to quote Bill, everybody was silent. And as soon as the election’s over, as soon as he can be dispensed with, the sword drops and he’s destroyed. I mean, can you imagine what it’s like to be on that pressure and to think it didn’t distort or at least in some way unconsciously influence his testimony? That’s hard to believe.

Doug Ross has the timeline and one pretty much has to have no brain to think that Obama, the WH and his reelection folks did not know about the Petraeus investigation.

Does anyone really think that the Obama White House did not know about the investigation that not only looks into CIA director Gen. Petraeus, but also Gen. Allen,the Commander of the US and NATO troops in Afghanistan. Come on folks, really? Remember the Obama philosophy on never letting a crisis go to waste.

The Petraeus Scandal Gets Worse … Marine Gen. John Allen, the Commander of the War in Afghanistan, Exchanged Thousands of “Potentially Inappropriate” Emails with Jill Kelley

Just when you thought the sex scandal of former CIA Director General David Petraeus could not get any worse, it does …

As reported at The Politico, Marine Gen. John R. Allen, the US. commander of the war in Afghanistan has been caught up and snagged in the Petraeus affair investigation. It appears that Allen was up to some hanky-panky of his own. It is being reported that Allen exchanged thousands of “potentially inappropriate” emails with Jill Kelley. Yes, the same Jill Kelly who contacted that FBI that she was receiving threatening emails from Petraeus’ mistress.

Marine Gen. John R. Allen, the four-star U.S. commander of the war in Afghanistan, exchanged thousands of “potentially inappropriate” emails with Jill Kelley, the Tampa woman who claimed to have been harassed by the ex-mistress of former CIA Director David Petraeus, a senior defense official told POLITICO early Tuesday.   Allen, 58 and married, was nominated in October by President Barack Obama to be Supreme Allied Commander Europe and commander of the U.S. European Command. That nomination is now on hold, but Allen will remain commander of U.S. forces and the NATO International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, the official said.

The FBI notified the Defense Department on Sunday of “potentially inappropriate communications” between Allen and Kelley, and turned over to Pentagon lawyers 20,000 to 30,000 pages of emails exchanged by the two from 2010 to 2012.

My question is as follows, I run a web site and do not have the time to exchange thousands of emails, how does a commander in charge of a war have the time to do so? Also, with all the American military heroes killed by so-called friendly Afghans, could Allen maybe have concentrated on that rather than ”inappropriate emails”?

FBI Knew of Petraeus Affair in the Summer But Supposedly Never Told Obama WH Until Last Week

The picture is becoming very clear why Obama was all in with the blame VIDEO approach in Benghazi, it was one huge mess that would have overwhelmed the news cycle during his reelection campaign. But they would all have you believe it was a coincidence.

The NY Times is reporting that the FBI discovered and knew of CIA Director General David Petraeus extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell during the summer when they investigated threatening emails received by  Jill Kelley; however, they never told anyone outside of the FBI or Justice Department. Also reported at the WSJ that high level officials at Justice knew. So Eric Holder never told Obama, eh? Folks if you believe that one I have a bridge to sell you. The FBI was looking at the CIA Director’s emails and no one knew this was going on?

Really. That is the story that the Obama administration will go with. It was just a coincidence that the FBI told the WH after the election and that Petraeus resigned after the election so not to harm Obama’s reelection chances. Of course it is also a coincidence that there has been no comments from Obama as to the Benghazi terror attacks and how a video tape was blamed when they knew it was terrorism. It was also a coincidence that an intel and terror guy like Petreaus also reiterated the false tape story under oath when he knew better. Yea, no conspiracy and cover up here. Was he being a team player or blackmailed?

High-level officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department were notified in the late summer that F.B.I. agents had uncovered what appeared to be an extramarital affair involving the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, David H. Petraeus, government officials said Sunday.

But law enforcement officials did not notify anyone outside the F.B.I. or the Justice Department until last week because the investigation was incomplete and initial concerns about possible security breaches, which would demand more immediate action, did not appear to be justified, the officials said.

The new accounts of the events that led to Mr. Petraeus’s sudden resignation on Friday shed light on the competing pressures facing F.B.I. agents who recognized the high stakes of any investigation involving the C.I.A. director but who were wary of exposing a private affair with no criminal or security implications. For the first time Sunday, the woman whose report of harassing e-mails led to the exposure of the affair was identified as Jill Kelley, 37, of Tampa, Fla.

More from the NRO:

The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have new stories out tonight about the scandal which led to David Petraeus’s resignation on Friday, both hitting on one interesting point: Petraeus’s affair was known at the top levels of the Justice Department months ago. The Times explains that “high-level officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department were notified in the late summer.” The Journal story goes further, saying that Eric Holder himself “knew about the email link to Mr. Petraeus as far back as late summer,” timing the NYT deliberately leaves unclear.

 

General Petraeus’ Mistress Paula Broadwell Leaks Benghazi Secret Prison Inside US Annex … She Would Know this How?

The following video becomes a bit more eye opening in the wake of the news that Paula Broadwell was CIA Director General Petraeus’ mistress. As reported at Breitbart, on October 26th, 2012, Paula Broadwell, addressed the University of Denver Alumni Symposium about the recent attacks on Benghazi during a question and answer session after her keynote address. Paula Broadwell told the audience that the US was holding militia prisoners at the secret prison at the  consulate annex in Benghazi. Also, she stated that Petraeus knew of the pleas for help coming from Benghazi on 9-11.

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE. The entire video of here speech can be seen HERE.

Broadwell: Petraeus Knew of Benghazi Plea for Help.

Military expert Paula Broadwell, who was allegedly improperly involved with resigned CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, confirmed in October that the CIA annex in Benghazi asked for reinforcements when the consulate came under attack on September 11. She also acknowledged that “there was a failure in the system.”   Broadwell was speaking at her alma mater, the University of Denver, on October 26. Her lecture, which is on YouTube under the title “Alumni Symposium 2012 Paula Broadwell,” now has added value, because based on the recent disclosures, it can now be assumed that she indeed knew exactly what it was that Petraeus knew about the attack.   Broadwell confirmed the reports on Fox News that the CIA annex asked for a special unit, the Commander in Chief’s In Extremis Force, to come and assist it. She also said that the force could indeed have reinforced the consulate, and that Petraeus knew all of this, but was not allowed to talk to the press because of his position in the CIA.

The plot thickens … Benghazi and the resignation of Petraeus is becoming more and more suspect and reeks of conspiracy and cover up for the political expedience of Barack Obama. Make no mistake about it, Petraeus has to testify in from of Congress at the Benghazi hearings if he ever wants to have a shred of credibility.

 

FBI Found Out About Petraeus Affair While Investigating a Complaint Against Mistress Sending Threatening Emails to Another Woman to Stay Away from Petraeus

Petyon Place or is it Petraeus Place or is it Petraeus-gate?

File the following under, you have got to be kidding me. According to accounts, the FBI learned about CIA Director Petraeus’ extramarital affair while they were investigating a complaint from a woman close to Petraeus who had received harassing emails from the general’s alleged mistress.

The FBI traced those emails back to Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and Petraeus’s biographer, according to news reports. When law enforcement officials delved into her email account, it was apparent Broadwell and Petraeus were engaged in an affair.

The identity of the woman who filed the original complaint has not been disclosed.

This morning on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Senator Feinstein (CA-D) stated that Petraeus’ mistress, Paula Broadwell, was threatening another woman to stay away from her boy Petraeus.  Senator Dianne Feinstein also stated that she should have been briefed by the FBI sue to the nature of national security issues and potential security breaches.  In the end Feinstein added, “I can’t believe it. But, that’s what it is.”

VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit 

From The Hill, Senator Feinstein: No link between Petraeus resigning and Benghazi investigation. Says who? We were also told by the Obama administration that there was no terror connection between the Benghazi attacks and terrorism. They told us that the attacks were a result of a reaction to a video tape.  I am far from a tin foil hat conspiracy individual, but the timing of this resignation is far too convenient for Obama and the Congressional Benghazi hearings next week. Was there an affair, yes. Is he resigning because of the Benghazi debacle, probably not. However, why did Petraeus not resign sooner? Once again we are presented with the question that Barack Obama will never answer, what did he know and when did he know it regarding the Petraeus affair? Who really does not believe that Obama knew and was only going to disclose this until after the election? Who does not think that Petraeus was not asked ny the WH to delay his resignation until after the election and some quid pro quo would be provided to Petraeus  in return?

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she does not think there’s any connection between the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that resulted in four dead.

“On the events in Benghazi and his resignation, absolutely not,” Feinstein said on Fox News Sunday when asked about a possible link. “And I think if you really think this thing out everybody will come to that same conclusion.”

UPDATE I:  Woman who received threatening emails from Petraeus’ mistress identified as Jill Kelley, a local concerned citizen who volunteers to help the military.
