When a C.I.A. Director
Had Scores of Affairs

New York Times, by Stephen Kinzer

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 11/10/2012 7:04:07 PM

WALKING through the lobby of the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in Langley, Va., after handing in his resignation on Friday, David H. Petraeus passed a bas-relief sculpture of Allen Dulles, who led the agency in the 1950s and early ’60s. Below it is the motto, “His Monument Is Around Us.” (Snip) But private life for a C.I.A. director today is apparently quite different from what it was in the Dulles era. Mr. Petraeus resigned after admitting to a single affair; Allen Dulles had, as his sister, Eleanor, wrote later, “at least a hundred.”

I would like to see Bubba Loose-Zipper Clinton asked the question: Do you feel Patraeus did the right thing by resigning for having an affair?

The half-wits of The Ministry of Truth seem to miss the central issue. It is not that Petraeus chose to dip his wick into forbidden receptacles, but rather that such behavior opened him to extortion. Maybe he realized that, and as a patriot (it´s possible) he elected to resign.

Perhaps Allen Dulles WAS being blackmailed with any number of his hundreds of affairs. I´d be stunned to find out he wasn´t. It seems to have been of no concern to him whatsoever. He didn´t even care if his long-suffering wife ratted him out.

This is worthy of further investigation.

Obit wanted Petraeus to NOT testify about Benghazi.

This was the workaround. The affair business was simply a device to explain the resignation which would preclude his testifying. The no-testifying bit is not a slamdunk for Obit. I saw Trey Gowdy a while ago and he does not take No for an answer. A pit bull. And others like John Bolton say that he will testify - be subpoenaed, if necessary. Now we could have another Obama "executive privilege" exercise. That could be interesting and look even more suspicious than Benghazigabe-Petraeusgate-Broadwellgate looks already.

I heard Lt.Col. Bill McCowen on WMAL in DC this morning, and he said he knew several of the guys who set up the security detail for the Gen. in Afghanistan and they were "suprised" of the visitors. There will probably be more to surface, but that´s not the point....

What the heck was going on in Benghazi???? Gun running that would make F & F look like child´s play????

How many out of town trips can PIAPS arrange until Jan. 20????

Dulles probably smoked in his office and had a bar so he and his pals could have a drink after closing a big deal. He probably bent some chicks over his desk. Our collective ideal spy, James Bond, was not a monk. It was a different world before Political Correctness metastasized. F- all of you neo-puritans if you get on the band wagon against Petraeus. There are a whole bunch of folks who are warriors and have a Viking mentality. As an aside, she is hot and 20 years younger than him. The warriors we have are brave and violent. They work hard and they play hard. They curse. They offend. They drink and carouse. They may brawl on liberty. They may associate with women with low morals when on shore leave. They will give their lives in the defense of our country. They are not choir boys. This Petraeus thing is all political.

In an episode of MI-5, an operative is told, "It´s not that you had an affair, it´s that you didn´t tell us about it."No matter what nefarious things were going on, Petraeus himself handed them the bludgeon.

The so-called MSM show themselves to be more disgusting with each passing day.
Their interest in the salacious aspects of this story compared with their lack of interest in finding the truth about the deaths of Americans, including an Ambassador, in Benghazi, Libya, saddens as much as it angers.

How ironic that these less than noble deeds of the General may serve to help his country as much as some of his more heroic ones, by shedding light on the far more reprehensible and destructive actions of others.

I feel for his wife and family, but the only interest his marital infidelity holds for me is that it may serve to expose the reasons why a President of the United States apparently did more to aid the enemy than he did our own people on 9/11/12.

So is the NYT attempting to use the "everybody does it" excuse for Petraeus´ affairs? And that being indiscreet and adulterous is just the way things have always been and should therefore be excused, and let´s move along?

#4 is right. The resignation makes it harder, but not impossible, to get him to sing. I see there is the awaited subpoena just handed down.

We shall see. I doubt the O Admininstration will have quite the easy time of these next 4 years as they think, unless they declare the 22nd Amendment null and void, which I have no doubt they will try to do. Hey, they think they´re on a roll; they´ve been able to get much of their socialist agenda passed and now have just graduated their first Corps of FEMA´s "Youth" soldiers to use all that ammunition they got.

We´re in a world of trouble here unless somebody in power does something.

The Obamunists believe they dodged a bullet with the election and that they´re untouchable now. Back in unfettered power. A compliant media eagerly writing plausible cover stories. A mewling, impotent Republican Party play-investigating. No, they think they´re going to skate again.

But sometimes hubris brings down hubris-ers by their being a tad too clever. And the thing they´re missing about this Petraeus gambit of theirs is that it´s about sex. And that means, unfortunately for them, that the media just can´t help pursuing every little detail. If it had only been about, oh, treason or the preventable deaths of US citizens, the media and the public would have been bored and tired of it all. But sex? No. Both the media and the otherwise somnolent public are going into hyperdrive on this now...because it´s about sex. An erect public is an informed public.

#10, there is a timeline study that suggests Obie / Valerie knew of this affair before the Gen was promoted to CIA. IOW, a pre-made resignation / scandal ready for use when needed: Days after an election and one day before damaging testimony.

I´m confident it´s all on the up and up and MSM will surely prove it so. Ya think ?

I continue to believe that this affair-business was not news to Petraeus´ wife. Just a convenient excuse for Zippy´s coverup.

And I continue to believe that the Resident about whom our only medical information has been that he should moderate his alcoholic intake, had a cocktail hour on 9/11 to celebrate his next day trip to Vegas and...well, shall we say "overdid it" a bit?

Maybe we´re lucky he wasn´t in the Situation Room.

I´m with number one. Why didn´t Clinton resign? Why did he perjure himself? And why is he still popular? The Slimes would say that he is a flawed man but a good president, but they won´t say that Fauxbama is a good man but a bad president. Bottom line: why are we reading the Slimes?

In Washington, whether you have to resign because you´ve been caught having an affair depends on who you are and who you´ve gotten on the wrong side of. It has nothing to do with national security, morality, honor or anything else. (Vide: Jack Kennedy, Bill Clinton vs. Newt Gingrich, Gen Petraeus.) Petraues, like Gingrich, must have really offended a lot of the powers that be in D.C.

Could it be Valarie threatened Petraeus with exposure and instead of allowing himself to be compromised and blackmailed - resigned?

VJ would have motives to keep Petraeus silent. But if they had no hold on him, he would be free to say whatever needed to be said.

We keep seeing crys of, "Obama can be impeached". With the current Dem majority of the US senate, I doubt that a 2/3 of the senate will cobbled to find BHO "guilty" to remove him from office. If it does happen, look at what we get in his place...Joee B. We would have to hope to be able find that J.B. abbeted in the charge or dig up some charge like that was lodged against Agnew and then SOH will be in the POTUS seat or like Ford from the house. If
That is a long long stretch of justice.
Why will it not happen? The MSM is in the pocket of the DEMs and public will be totally excluded from knowing any of the details as has already been demonstrated relative to Benghazi.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe.

The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
