Breaking: CIA Director Petraeus
Resigns, Cites Extramarital Affair (Update)

Ulsterman Report, by Ulsterman

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/9/2012 5:49:17 PM

This may prove even more important than the initial reports suggest. Is Director David Petraeus a fatality of Chicago politics – made to remain silent prior to the election and now left to act as the administration’s sacrifice to Congressional investigators in the wake of the Benghazi scandal? Or is the former military general preparing to unleash facts that will lead directly back to the Obama White House and the president himself regarding what really happened on September 11th of this year when four Americans – including a U.S. ambassador, were killed during a coordinated terrorist attack against

Comments:
Ulsterman, like many of us, questions the timing and Obie's plan to immediately skip the country...

UPDATED almost the moment I clicked final confirmation of post:

UPDATE: Reports now circulating that Petraeus’ scheduled testimony next week before Congress regarding the Benghazi Massacre has been cancelled.

« Entire Romney Campaign “Shellshocked” By Election Loss

That makes absolutely no sense. Will Congress simply subpoena Petraeus and force his testimony regardless? More importantly – why WOULDN”T Congress do just that? And would the former general participate, or would he plead the 5th? Or perhaps the Obama White House would initiate sweeping Executive Privilege as they did with Fast and Furious and dare Congressional leaders to try and force the president’s hand. He so far has successfully buried the Fast and Furious investigation – why not Benghazi as well?


Update goes on to say that some are saying that his "affair" occurred over a year ago.

Stay tuned.

How tough is this to figure out? Zippy found out that Petraeus wasnt' going to fall on his sword and take the blame. Jarrett told him if you don't, we're going to smear you with details of this affair. He said "You can't fire me, I quit" and pre-emptively confessed to the affair.

It's the Chicago way, people. I'm disappointed in all of you. Back to studying, all of you!

He probably didn't even have an affair--it's just an excuse that he can use to quit.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone has made threats to him.

One becomes a General by singing the company song no matter what it is.

David has resigned because he will not be a party to murder and cover up.

I hope.

Still, the White House, with concurrence by the FBI and Justice Department, held off on asking for Petraeus’ resignation until after the election. His resignation occurred three days after the election, avoiding the possibility that Obama’s ill-fated appointment of Petraeus could become an issue in the election.

FBI agents on the case were aware that such a decision had been made to hold off on forcing him out until after the election and were outraged.

“The decision was made to delay the resignation apparently to avoid potential embarrassment to the president before the election,” an FBI source says. “To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.”

Is it true that the hearing is to be before a Senate Committee headed up by the decorated and oft wounded Viet Nam Hero, Senator John F Kerry?

And now that Patraeus has resigned, Kerry's committee is "no longer interested" in having Patraeus testify about Benghazi?

And meanwhile President Putt is off to the orient for high colonics or somesuch?

...like manyt, I haave spent a couple of days questioning my abilities of decernment, we have taken a another step toward "Idiocracy"...

...but this is most strange. There is nothing to stop him being called to hearings. Maybe not Jon (served in Viet Nam) Kerry and perhaps next S.0.S., but congress should be all over it, if need be...

...if there are games going on, Petraeus has just filled a brown paper bag with some warm wet stuff and has lit and left it on the doorsteps of the White House...

It´s all happening at the zoo today, Easter Sunday in Sydney, where Prince George met a cute little critter named for him and the world got to see the royal baby for a second official appearance. After Easter services at the Anglican cathedral in Sydney in the morning, Prince William and Duchess Kate changed clothes, collected George and headed for the Taronga Zoo, Sydney´s harbor-side menagerie of Australia´s wonderfully quirky wildlife. It was another beautiful sunny day and thousands had been waiting to see them for hours before the zoo opened. Eventually there were so many people, the zoo closed to further

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

People who have accounts on the enrollment website for President Barack Obama´s signature health care law are being told to change their passwords following an administration-wide review of the government´s vulnerability to the confounding Heartbleed Internet security flaw. Senior administration officials said there is no indication that the HealthCare.gov site has been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution.

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last?

AUSTIN — Documents related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency, Travis County officials say. It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations. The Travis County district attorney’s office said last month that details from its review of a 2012 complaint that a rival filed about Davis’ legal and political activities were “the subject of an open investigation” by the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
