Post Finally Digs into
Growing Petraeus Scandal

Accuracy in Media, by Cliff Kincaid

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 11/25/2012 5:20:30 AM

The Washington Post has been greatly embarrassed by the fact that its local editor Vernon Loeb was the ghost writer for the David Petraeus biography by Paula Broadwell and admits he was “clueless” about their sexual relationship. The paper is now making up for lost time. On Thursday, the Post published an article that debunked claims by Petraeus, who was Obama’s CIA director, that he had never given Broadwell classified information. The story by Carol D. Leonnig, Sari Horwitz and Anne Gearan reveals that Petraeus aides and other high-ranking military officials were often tasked by Petraeus

Too bad their "embarrassment" prevented their looking into Benghazi properly before the election.

Is it a "Growing Petraeus Scandal"? I think it´s a Rapidly Disappearing Petraeus Story. Benghazi? Who ever heard of Benghazi!

Now it is safe for the post to take control of the tragedy/debacle of benghazi and steer it into the safe waters of soap-opera affairs.
Why the ambassador was repeatedly stripped of security, ordered into al qaeda controlled area, and watched, over a nine hour period, be slaughtered, will never be addressed.
And that is exactly what dumb-as-mud voters deserve and will get from now on.
The voters have said what they will tolerate and it is a combination of the old USSR and Nazi Germany.

Obama War Room: Dodge City

OBAMA: Benghazi Petraeus Benghazi Petraeus. Will it ever stop? Tell me again why I wanted another term.
JOE BIDEN: You gotta finish the job makin´ everybody in America equally miserable, Boss.
OBAMA: Jay, how many news conferences have I held since January 2009?
CARNEY: Um, maybe twelve, sir.
OBAMA: Ok. Inform the networks to start reruns next week. Prime time. One every two months until they run out. Gives me a two year breather.
BIDEN: Smart, Chief. Questions are always the same and so are your nothingburger answers. Nobody´ll notice. Meanwhile, you´ll appear engaged.
CARNEY: Along the same lines, sir, my Q and A tussles with reporters are getting to me. From now on, at noon, I´ll make a five minute statement in the press room. It´ll list on the schedule as my daily uh, brief.
DAVID AXELROD: Benghazi, double-dip recession, tax hikes, increasing unemployment, ObamaCare horror stories--sir, maybe you´d better get out of town until it all blows over or people accept things as the new normal.
OBAMA: Going abroad through 2016? I can´t. . . .
DAVID PLOUFFE: You must, sir, if you want a third term. Remember, you can´t be criticized when you´re on foreign soil.
VALERIE JARRETT: You´ve done more damage to the country in one term than you ever dreamed possible, Barack. Take a break, wind down. We can manage the decline until you get back.
OBAMA: Well, I could do a global golf goodwill tour, set a goal to play in every country in the world with a golf course. That should take about four years and give the lie to people who say I have no agenda.

First leg of the world goodwill golf tour is already underway, #4. Biden said he already has his vacay itinerary planned for the second term--first stop: Ireland. Biden noted that O wants to accompany him to golf there.

So, to cover their embarrassment as being exposed for lies of omission and the supposed ´discovery´ of their ghost writer, the editors at WaPo go after Petreaus in an attempt to make him the only bad guy here.
.... Yes, of course. It´s more of that ´finger pointing´ thing practiced in Marxism.

Why is no one asking the primary question and that is why was our Ambassador in Benghazi without proper security in place on September 11th when it was known to be a hotbed of terrorist activity. Unfortunately, the truth will never see the light of day because it leads right up to the Oval Office and the media will never let a scintilla of scandal touch the first black President. The corruption of this country runs deep and I fear some of our "leaders" are guilty as well. DC is a cesspool that good hardworking Americans don´t deserve. Our politicians have failed to uphold their oath of office and it is time to do something about it. America needs men and women of honor and character to stand up and be counted on this matter regardless of the consequences. It is probably too much to hope for because they would have to actually do what is right when they are more concerned with protecting their power, money, pension and perks that go along with their job.

The Post had a front row seat to the scandal and still side stepped it, though as far as the election timing goes, Obama´s supporters would not have cared one whit.

What is being revealed is the serious issue of Petraeus giving Broadwell classified documents. No wonder he has lawyered up fast. His sins are beyond sex, and he is in deep doo doo.

I think #4 has a bug planted somewhere or maybe he has a WH Insider? I also agree with #9 that laughing makes the sad reality more bearable.

House Republicans should be focused like a lazer beam on one thing for the next four years until the truth finally comes out - Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi.

If military aides to Petraeous helped in giving Broadwell sensitive documents, then they should be hauled before Congress. The same for anyone around General Allen and Jill Kelley. Republicans have to say "enough is enough". America needs to see and hear the same kind of attention the Pubbies paid to Nixon and Watergate (where no one died when he lied). If Republicans can bring down a President from their own party, they surely can find the intestinal fortitude (aka balls) to at least tie the hands of a fraudulently-elected Democrat President!

The Post was derelict in not getting at this story earlier. Their audience is not just us. Now more of the public will know. They will know what Petraeus did. They will know what the Obama administration did to cover it up.

And they will also know that the campaign to make Jill Kelley look bad (including that farce about her FBI friend´s shirtless photo) was to detract from what she did to begin the unraveling of this sorry tale.

Jill Kelley told her FBI friend (described in this article as "the FBI whistleblower), who had a stellar record with the agency, and he told superiors who initiated the investigation. When he saw the investigation going nowhere, he got word to Eric Cantor via an aide.

Because she is a flashy dresser, a Lebanese (OMG - no one noticed she is a Maronite Catholic Leganese), pushy, not subtle enough for most tastes, self-promoting, many did just what they were supposed to do and joined in trashing her. The Obama media´s campaign against her worked.

Hopefully that campaign will not keep the whistleblower FBI agent´s integrity intact (he has accumulated a lot of fine achievements in his career, of which this is another) and the investigation will be ongoing.

Obie was elected. But other presidents have not finished their second terms.

Just before the election, a roving reporter asked two young girls wearing Obama T-shirts, what they thought about Benghazi. One quickly responded, "I don´t know, is he a republican?"

Do you think the Republicans are going to do anything on this? THEY want it to go away more than the Donks. The Donks have barrels of ink to pour over Behghazi and those murdered men. The GOP has---nothing
except that the Donks have buckets of ink to pour over benghazi, drowning it.
I will take a D.A. to file accessory to murder and name some regime offcials in the indictment. Recall the DA that went after Tom Delay?

Benghazi? Benghazi? Who cares about a backwater Libyan port city with access to the Med overrun and controlled by crazy Muslim terrorists, chock-a-block with heavy weapons?

Who cares that there was apparently a big CIA operation located there, and our Ambassador was assassinated along with three other CIA operatives?

Who cares when there is a salacious bimbo eruption to cover?

To be considered:

The Washington Post was the patron of Saul Alinsky and has always supported traitors to the US Constitution, hence can be counted on for cover for all indiscretions or illegalities on the Left....of course they provide cover for a communist president and Woodward will too, as his interest in taking down Nixon was political ---not righteous.

Benghazi and the Mexican border were both different versions of the same illegal, unconstitutional, scheme...a Fast and Furious...direct commerce...direct, illegal commerce...of gun running and Missile Running...

Lockheed is up to their eyes in the illegalities of missile running to Al Qaeda....in cahoots with Obama...

Ambassador Stevens, an Islamist gay man was central to the scheme....and had met secretly with Senator Inhofe a couple weeks previous to his death.

Arming our enemies? Exactly for what purpose???

Panetta is about to dismiss many high level military so as to complete the transformation without fear of a military coup....Put communists in charge and fulfill expectations...

Why didn´t Cantor come public with the info he had? We know dims would have whether there was any truth or not. This is such a tangled web of deceit that I wonder if we will ever get to the bottom. We need either some republicans with spines or a truly independent counsel. I have a feeling if the economy gets worse like we think it will, people may be clamoring for impeachment.

WASHINGTON — The case of Farrah Fawcett’s missing portrait is getting a redo. The University of Texas is appealing a Los Angeles Superior Court jury verdict from December that an iconic portrait of the late actress by Andy Warhol belongs to her on-again off-again lover, actor Ryan O’Neal. Fawcett was 62 when she died of cancer in 2009 and she bequeathed all her artwork, including her own creations, to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art in the1960s. O’Neal, however, took the painting from her Wilshire Boulevard condo after she died and has maintained that it was always his _

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. 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)
