Obama ´may have known about
Petraeus affair BEFORE election´

UK Daily Mail, by Reuters Reporter

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 11/19/2012 6:30:23 AM

The head of the House Intelligence Committee suggested on Sunday that President Barack Obama might have known about former CIA Director David Petraeus´ extra-marital affair before the November election, and said Attorney General Eric Holder should address this question soon before Congress. U.S. Representative Mike Rogers, a Republican, said Holder´s statement that the Justice Department had not informed the president before the election implied that Holder might have told Obama privately.

Pet acknowledge the affair to the FBI way back in September.

Transparency from this administration has a new meaning.

What does he mean MAY have? Of course he knew. What thinking-engaged person doubts this? This is the MO if this administration; it´s like the Clinton administration on steroids.

There´s no way the FBI would rogue itself into spying on Petraeus without Obama knowing about it.For Obama to claim ignorance right after he got re-elected isn´t the least bit believable.

The FBI´s excuse is the general´s behavior hadn´t reached a level to bother the president on it.What exactly triggered the FBI to go very deep into data mining on someone who had a sterling reputation? Oh,right the honorary counsel from Tampa who opened the door for the forensic digging into a threatening e mail.This took some serious hacking most people wouldn´t believe the FBI is capable of.

Did the FBI investigate the death threats on Romney that were on Twitter and those people being easily identifiable?

I just hope when they dig Arafat up,they get a DNA sample and compare it to Chelsea Clinton.

I´m shocked. Shocked!

Pass the popcorn. This weeks episode of "Survivor - Mordor On The Potomac" is on.

Pay no attention to the fact that as this is all happening, nothing is really happening. As time goes by the manchild is distanced from responsibility. The stories change the "truths" increase and the sheeple move on to Black Friday. Four dead guys in a place most Americans can´t find on a map are long forgotten. And obama is still awesome.

This administration is a bunch of corrupt slimy liars from Obama on down. If the GOP had the nads and the Press wasn´t totally corrupt they would have the people screaming for the impeachment of Obama and the firing and indictments of most members of his administration for multiple offenses. These people daily spit on the Constitution.

(d) the real unemployment rate is 7.9%
(e) 0bama got 247,000 out of maximum 174000 votes in St.Lucie county Florida

Obama War Room: Distractions

OBAMA: We need to get this stuff off the front pages. Even Leno´s giving me hell.
DAVID AXELROD: A war between Egypt and Israel would distract everyone, sir.
OBAMA: True. Valerie, your call.
JARRETT: Hillary, tell Huma to get a message to the Brotherhood: provoke a serious but non-nuclear response. Truce in five days. We´ll make up their losses.
HILLARY: Yes, Ma´am.
OBAMA: Sweeten it. Throw in a nuclear-tipped cruise missile preprogrammed for Tel Aviv. We need a counterweight to Israel other than that moonbat Ahmadinejad anyway.
JAY CARNEY: We´ll get hammered for losing Egypt, sir.
OBAMA: We won´t. I´ll fly there with Chris Christie when hostilities cease and survey the damage. Does FEMA have international capabilities?
AXELROD: It doesn´t even have local capabilities, sir. Uh, why would Christie agree to go?
OBAMA: I´ll ask Springsteen to do a live benefit for the Egyptian military while we´re there. Christie´ll host. Jeez, I hope he doesn´t bear hug Bruce.
JOE BIDEN: Hey, Chief. You still hot to make Susie Rice SecState? The Repugs are saying´ she´s either a dupe or a liar. They´ll filibuster her.
JARRETT: We´ll say, she´s not a dupe, she was out of the loop; she´s not a liar, she was singing with the choir. And Jay, set up a meet with Sharpton, Jackson, the CBC, the Times editorial board, E. J. Dionne, and Maddow. They´ll push the racist meme.
BIDEN: Nice thinkin´, Val. McCain, Graham, they been all over her like, uh, like white on Rice.
OBAMA: Joe, you´re leaving tomorrow to attend Queen Elizabeth´s funeral.
BIDEN: She´s not dead yet, Chief.
OBAMA: I want you to be on hand, just in case.

This whole business of Obama not knowing his director of the CIA was having an affair works because we are surrounded by the willfully ignorant who believe anything the boy king and his minions tell them. A lie only works if it is believed and this country is full of true believers who understand that critical thinking is only for chumps. They much prefer being spoon fed Obama propaganda.

We all know that Obama knew. But you know what? The media knew too.

How many members of Pravda in DC/NY got leaks about this before the election, and didn´t investigate or publish? My anger goes to every single one of the lying traitors who belong to the axis of evil known as the DC Press Corps.

Legal Insurrection website, iirc, suggests Obie and Val knew of the affair before Patreus moved to CIA and thus came with a handy coercive factor.

Of course "he" knwew. He and holder held the information because they had a political motive...

My neighbor voted for obama because he´s German and he was afraid the republicans would start a war. To late -- tell the Israelis about betrayal....

WE didn´t vote as "one country" -- WE voted for our own personal reasons -- and obama knew that....

Re #3 - I read in today´s Washington Examiner that the reason the FBI pursued the threatening emails (when they normally would not) was because there was mention in them of Petraeus´ and Allen´s travel schedule. That is what supposedly forced the FBI to investigate.

I bet everybody in Washington knew about the affair 24 hours after it began, just as everyone in Washington knew the Plame dame worked for the CIA, long before she was used to mousetrap the Bush administration.

The affair (whether it had begun yet or not) was probably the talk of Afghanistan and Iraq from the moment the two were seen lunching together in the Officers´ Mess.

Don´t forget ....in August ,before Romney picked Ryan, Obama was telling his big fundraisers that he heard Petraeus would be the VP pick.
Drudge picked up on this.
Obama may have been trying to start the Petraeus as Veep wave , which would have guaranteed the perfect October surprise.

If the FBI Director knew, the Attorney General knew, and if the Attorney General knew the President knew. Those Obama appointees would not put their positions at risk by keeping the President in the dark.

Once the Attorney General knew, you can bet that he passed along the information to the President in a private conversation of which there is no evidence and that will never be publicly revealed by the parties involved. There is nothing revolutionary about that happening.

President Obama does not care what the Republicans think, or say, about the matter. As Obama knows that he has been re-elected, and that there are enough people in the country who believe that the standard for him should be that "he is doing the best that he can" no matter what he says or does, and will always believe him no matter the circumstances, after all they just reelected him.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
