Broadwell: Petraeus Knew
of Benghazi Plea for Help

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Gil Ronen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/12/2012 4:42:28 AM

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

Affair aside, this woman is no dummy. She graduated from West Point in 1995. She is a lieutenant colonel, ex-intelligence officer and counter-terrorism expert.

She indicates that the commands to stand down and lack of support for our CIA and consulate offices came from the miserable bunch at the WH.

Why the affair and the bitter emails? Who knows. She worked in a field where secrecy is a core value. Lust corrupts!

The CIA is now in fullscale CYA mode denying her assertions. There is an eternal truth here however. When the pillow talker is the head of the CIA, the pillow talkee is a more reliable source of accurate information than the CIA, NYT, or just about anybody else.

Why claim this is part of a "puzzle" when we all know it is a failure of leadership from the White House? The lamestream media cannot cover this up any more. They can try, but the too much has been brought out in open to allow it. Obama has long proven himself to be the poorest person to occupy the WH ever. It just galls me to hear him say that no one will be left behind after Sandy, but no one in the media (except Fox News) has the cojones to bring up Benghazi.

Broadwell should be called to testify by the House Committee. She seems to know a lot more inside info than most others on Benghazi? It´d be grand to get this tart under oath and then grill the Dickens out of her?

The Mddm. Trudeau comment is the best.

I had a really strong and rather witty comment almost ready but I lost the whole idea after reading that and laughing myself onto the floor.

Thank You So Much !

I think that Obama is so very happy that this is coming out about Petraseus as now, he has someone to blame for the Benghazi mess and he thinks he will not be accused of anything. We will never know the truth as it will never be told..... In the meantime, a man was elected President who was not capable for the first four years and is not capable for another four years, but here we are - stuck with him.

How do you think she is going to flame out. Hanging, OD. that pesky convenient heart attack. Is she aware they are planning her demise?

She is already targeted and is a dead woman walking. What she needs to do is hold a press conference, spill her guts, and hide in plain sight. But she won´t. She wants to be faaaaamous like Monroe, Anna Smith and all the other floozies now pushing dasies.

FTA: "As a former intel officer it´s frustrating to me because it reveals our sources and methods, I don´t think the public necessarily needs to know all of that.´´

What Broadwell is revealing here is exactly who anonymous & unnamed White House sources are that the LSM relies to inform or spread lies with.

I guess the only ´´size´´ that matters to these modern day Mata Hari´s are the length of time served by these government officials and how big the secret is they share together. [I guess there is a ´´g-spot.´´]

I listened to the symposium video as recommended by #2. While listening I had the feeling that we are witnessing the shadow world of intelligence ops playing out ("performing" or "operating" might be more accurate terms) for all the world to see, especially for "We The People."

Who is playing whom in this instance? Where´s our George Smiley (John LeCarre´s genius spy)? Do we have our own master spy who can ferret out the lies, the moles and other deep cover double and triple agents at work? I hope so.

Who, in the liberal media knew? They continually protected Obama. He alone, as President of US, is responsible. He did not respond to the attack! He did not make a stand for US. He let innocent men die! Their blood is upon him.

The families of the fallen need to sue Obama and let the lawyers fight it out in court, if that is what it takes to get the truth!

Broadwell seems to know more than our President. How does this happen? She and Petraeus conversed together more than the President of US did with US!

God is opening our eyes!

What are we going to do with this information?

Are we able to make a stand for righteousness, beginning at the White House?

What did Obama know?

When did he know it, and how much?

Obama has constantly lied to US and the media just pats him on the back,congratulates him for outsmarting the common people.

We are a country in turmoil.

Righteousness has been "driven out" from US!

We accept anything.

Obama ran a campaign of fear and contempt.

Too many Americans swallowed it "hook, line & sinker" and now we all, together, will suffer the consequences.

Pray for America. We are lost without God.

The Democractic convention threw God out.

Let US make a stand that Obama does not represent US. We are a country founded on Christian principles, dedicated to God, wants freedom for all.

This cannot go away without US knowing exactly what happened. Too many in the Obama administration have come forward with lies that need to be challenged.

At 12:20 the youtube video was no longer available. I am disgusted by the MSM primarily and the republicans next because of their unwillingness to investigate this whole matter thoroughly. People should be prosecuted for the dereliction of duty involved.

The Margaret Trudeau comment was great.

As an aside for those who still need proof that truth is stranger than fiction. the two candidates (so far) for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada are Justin Trudeau (son of Pierre and Margaret) and Deborah Coyne (daughter of Pierre Trudeau with his girlfriend, and therefore half sister to Justin).

The question of "How much did Obama/the white house know?" about Benghazi is not the issue. The issue is -- They are paid to know and act appropriately in such an attack and they did not.

I doubt that Petraeus would make the decision to not help protect those who were under attack in Benghazi.

Re the concerns for Ms. Broadwell´s safety, perhaps her identity was revealed to protect her from disappearing as an unknown. Thankfully, Ms. Broadwell has military training, and hopefully, a sharpshooter ribbon/medal so that she can protect herself.

What Broadwell reveals in the video is astonishing! She tells us that the CIA was holding 2 members of the "militia." (Could have been al qaeda or God know who else)and this was the reason for the attack to get their people back. I noticed that she walked back a little on that by saying "its all being vetted" but I believe that was the real reason for the attack.
This puts the blame squarely on the WH/SOS´s plate.
They knew we had prisoners and those prisoners could be squeeze for a myriad of intel purposes and the WH dropped the ball and in the process doomed four goood dedicated operators.
Whata president we have.

22, my daughter is a Lt in the Army and has to deal with that kind of attitude all the time. She is a diligent officer. Having said that, I don´t think women should be in combat.
There are career people inside the CIA who like things the way they are and don´t want change. Porter Gaus found that out as well as Petraeus. It is like a shadow government. I have a feeling there are more bombshells to come.

The building had a Jail Fox showed it and called it (strange i thought at the time) a safe for a time hiding place Bars is not a hiding place.

My take on all this is that Petraeus would not allow himself to be blackmailed to keep quiet when 4 Americans were murdered.
Were did Broadwell get her information i thought Petraeus broke up with her.
To not give the Ambassador protection in the first place was like a death sentence for him. Is that what was wanted and the reason not to send help.
Would Petraeus ever go along covering up something like this i think not.

Barack Obama and the politics of lies

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

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Liberals now love Barry Goldwater,

TO THE RECENT spate of 50th-anniversary reflections on major political and cultural milestones — the 1963 March on Washington, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show — get ready to add another: The presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, the most influential loser in modern American politics. Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. penned an essay a few years back effusive in its praise for Goldwater, whom he described as an exemplar of civility, decency, and integrity. Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

The building will dominate the skyline of the coastal town of Jeddah on the Red Sea.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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

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

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
