Krauthammer: White House
´Held Affair Over Petraeus´s
Head´ For Favorable Testimony
On Benghazi

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/13/2012 10:36:40 PM

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday said the White House used David Petraeus’s affair to get the CIA director to give testimony about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that was in line with the administration’s position on the matter. Appearing on Fox News´s Special Report, Krauthammer said, "The sword was lowered on Election Day" (video follows with transcript and commentary): CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the really shocking news today was that General Petraeus thought and hoped he could keep his job. He thought that it might

FTA: "I think the really shocking news today was that General Petraeus thought and hoped he could keep his job. He thought that it might and it would be kept secret, and that he could stay in his position."

That would make him worse than the people he lied to protect.

If a peasant tried something like that it would be called blackmailing a witness and lead to jail time. At some point high up on the government ladder crimes stop being crimes.

Would not surprise me if this woman and others like her are plants by the Obama Administration to "neuter" certain generals, admirals, etc. I believe Obama needs to get the military under control so they do not pull a coup when Obama goes for total control. Nothing would surprise me anymore. I never thought the US would have such a president. I never thought my rights as a US citizen would be in jeopardy. So why not a president who believes he can take complete control and he must get the military under his control before he can make his move? Just a thought. Sex is always the weapon of choice to bring a man with power down or to get control of him.

Krauthammer is a genius, and he is probably correct on this. I am looking one step beyond this to the DiFi and House hearings. If Petraeus was pressured to lie or face exposure he could be ready to turn on those who turned on him. He was in the situation room and monitored the attack in real time. He also went to Benghazi, himself, to investigate. He has already been exposed, His original testimony was not under oath, so not much to lose in telling the truth.

Krauthammer: "White House Held Affair Over Petraeus´s Head For Favorable Testimony On Benghazi"

Guess that Chicago style blackmail backfired on Obozo didn´t it.. Petraeus step up and told the story himself instead of being force to be a liar for voting fraud usurper Obozo .... Petraeus/West for President when Obozo is arrested for fraud, which he has already done with his forged Barf certificate ...

Benghazi=Obozo TREASON

I don´t believe that telling the truth under oath is any different from simply telling the truth. You´re either honest or you´re not.

And I too think that Krauthammer has pounced right in the middle on this one. Keep it up Doctor, we need you voice out there to be heard.

And now that Petraeus has neutralized the blackmail by going public, does anyone believe he will testify at all?

Certainly not, with the possibility of trumped-up charges (conduct unbecoming...) against him and the threat of losing his military pension.

Well played, Valerie Jarrett.

A lesson for all. Don´t lie to protect the one. The one has no honour and only a man of honour can really go up against him. Petraeus is much better than Obama and should never have allowed himself to be in that den of thieves. Wrestle with pigs in the mud and you will get dirty.

Another thought on this: David Petraeus should take a lesson from his name sake King David. He had a time of weakness ( Bathsheba ) and bad judgement but he followed up with true sorrow for this episode with the beautiful penitential psalms… David was truly sorry and God forgives such a person. David Petraeus now sees where it is getting him lying for the one and trying to cover his own lack of honour and judgement. Now is the time to show true sorrow and do things right. Testify about what really happened in Benghazi. Obama will pull your pension etc. That is inevitable - you see what happens when you lie to save yourself by saving Obama - he throws you under the bus anyway. Just do the right thing starting now. Things will work out for the better as they did for King David.

#7, I agree. President Jarrett, this Administration and its Agencies are far too sinister to ever have been contemplated here in America only 4 years ago.

The Marxists have waited patiently and have planned for this very moment for decades, when they knew the populace was ignorant, uneducated, too caught up in their entitlements and their hedonism to care and that the military was weakened by political correctness.

I hope I´m not around to watch the rest of this horror show.

Princeton Petraeus has certainly gotten himself in quite a pickle, so smart in the head, so dumb in his pants!

Anyone see a pattern with Obama and his clan? How neat of them to play this game of political hardball. Even Alan Colmes stands strong with Obama-Mao as this ship of evil slowly but certainly begins to drift and attract the icebergs just waiting beyond the horizon.

However, we American citizens will and are going to pay a very dear price for "our foolishness" in electing these people, starting with the "realities" of the health care bill of 2700 pages plus, which Nancy Pelosi made her soon to be famous remark.

How many will fall by the wayside like our soldiers in the Bataan death march?

I wish I shared the optimism of others that this would lead to Impeachment. But impeachment requires Congressmen and Senators who will uphold the Constitution despite the risk to their personal popularity. This Congress is not capable of leading a parade down MainStreet, USA in Disney world. To expect them to actually do their duty is the height of Hope over Experience.

And when Petraeus went to Benghazi at the end of October to see for himself, he essentially cooked his own goose, because the Admn. could see that he might not stay in his box.

Remember that old tale about the scorpion and, how in the end, due to its nature, it stung the victim? And old story but how true today. Obama´s nature is to destroy everyone and anything else to protect himself. And I believe that is the nature of ALL liberals. Destroy this country as long as they get the free stuff.

I am very worried for Petraeus. He´s now expendable and his silence would be valuable to the regime. Keep an eye on him. If something happens it will be easy to "blame" the right wing as "angry over his betrayal".

The guy is in big trouble.

The admission of guilt was neither planned by the administration nor Petraeus. The administration was happily going along with a blackmailed general in their pocket to say and do what they told him to say and do. Petraeus was glad to participate, in an effort to protect his legacy and his marriage.
Their hand was forced when a "right wing" whistle blower in the FBI went around his boss and let Rep. Cantor find out about this mess. Had it not been for Cantor, Petraeus would have dug in his heels and blackmailed them right back, refusing to go.
Near the end the discussion and decision was about whether they could manage to time "the big reveal" to be post election and yet beat the republicans to the microphone with the news. I am sure they were holding their breath as the final days of the election approached, waiting for the shoe to drop. Which may explain some of the defeated/panicked look we saw in Obama´s eyes near the end.

While this evil cabal could have trumped up something to neutralize Petraeus, he made it easier by leaping into the honey trap. Are there no men or women in power with integrity or morals? And yes, I blame the women as much as the men. I know there are, but some days... (sigh)

They are ALL in on it. They ALL knew before the election. They ALL know that if the truth comes out over Benghazi and the cover-up Obama will be impeached, if only by the House. Obama deserves to be stained with the disgrace of impeachment. He is a lousy president. He has lied to the American people just like Nixon and Clinton. He does not deserve better treatment just because of his skin color.

The first "rule´ for Congressional Republicans is to NOT put the cart before the horse, that is, do NOT talk about "impeaching" anyone before there is an investigation.

This situation ABSOLUTELY is worthy of an investigation or "audit" by the Congress and whatever is revealed can be taken from there.

It would be completely improper to leave the public wondering if we can trust our Government to be honest with us. Right now, the inconsistencies of the statements made by our President MUST be clarified. We MUST know that we can trust our Commander in Chief.

I think impeachment is a bit "much" to hope for -- but -- the "giggle" factor is starting. Each time DC opens it´s mouth the citizens "giggle".....

No one believes DC anymore..... Each citizen is shoring up his/her assets and moving to republican held states. The governors of these states will surely put up a line of defense...

The reality is -- the "gooooberment spongers" need someone to "sponge" from -- and WE the taxpayers are very clever. WE ´re moving our assets and packing up for friendlier states....

Good-bye Illinois....

#27 hits the bull´s-eye - - they´re all in on it - - including those valiant warriors, the Pubbies.

Sen. Dine Fine Stein is in full coverup mode - - despite her wide-eyed protestations of innocence - - and the Pubbies will be dragged along on the usual leash.

Anyone expecting consequences from these multiple acts of treason is delusional. All of the perpetrators are pro-abortion - - so all of them will skate away.

In the future, depending upon what comes out, I don´t care whether impeachment is successful or not. I just want to have that option go before congress. I want this guy´s official history to be blemished. Of course an impeachment threat and then resignation would be a dream come true, but I am not that optimistic.

I think this is absolutely stunning from the man who said very clearly that he does not believe in Conspiracy Theories. Proves that the inside the Beltway types know more about the truth of the corruption than they have been telling us.

Chrissy Mathews has commented that he was shocked at the interplay at the W.H. It seems as if he was referring to the cat fights that go on between ValJar and other females and males in the Obama administration.

The rats truly are sailing the ship of state.

That´s all history now. No time to investigate what really happened in Benghazi and who knew what and when. No siree. More important things to uncover.

Sad but True: The Sad Part: Every comment made here is 99.9% accurate. The True and Real-LIfe Part: The entire congress: Representatives and Senators are worthless when it comes to do what is right for the country. They do what is right for THEM as individuals. That goes for Republicans as well as Democrats.The old saying "TALK IS CHEAP" should be inscribed at the entrance of both houses.

Gen. DP has always been an ´academic´ style General. This does not bode well for his ´unvarnished´ testimony.

He may decide to deliver a huge, steaming pile of nuance.

Val-Rod is unlikely to fumble the ball at this critical juncture.

DP, like Ryan & Romney, is crippled by the fact of having a conscience.

Libs play this game unfettered by such silliness.

My gut tells me not to expect much. While my first thought upon hearing of this scandal was also "blackmail," upon reflection I doubt he needed much coaxing to be persuaded to go along with the Obama fairy tale about demonstrations over a youtube video. He has described himself as a "Rockefeller Republican," so he views conservatives as the enemy and Obama and his crew as just fellow liberals, not as radical leftists. My money says he won´t give them up. My money also says he won´t be asked any useful questions anyway.

They just cut Petraeus´s throat and threw him out of the life raft to attract the sharks while Obama and crew paddle for safer waters. The election was only a WEEK ago and it has been erased from the news in favor of a sex scandal. We are SO easy.

Petraeus needs to kiss his military retirement good bye #35 - He has already experienced what hoping for loyalty from Obama brings you. His retirement is gone baby gone. If he wants to rebuild his honour and integrity he must start now with telling the truth. Better late than never with a winning strategy!

I totally agree with Krauthmmer´s assessment. Now that Obama is no longer the CIC of General Petraeu, he needs to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. This is the only redeaming factor to this mess. My only fear is a Vince Foster or Ron Brown type of situation.
Do the right thing general and tell the truth. the American people will stand behind you.

To my mind,there is one component to this Bengazi story and that is the absence of the name SOS Clinton. She held the "cards" re: all jurisdictions over which she presided. I recall she and her hubby were on a "mini" vacation earlier this year, after which came her decision to resign after the election.

The General, as CIA chief was truly between a rock and a hard place when he echoed HER pronouncement that it was the "mob" meme. His dalliance, not withstanding and his statement that "no one in his department told any one to step down"

We´ll see.

Two thoughts - dictators are always brought down BECAUSE of their innate ruthlessness. The people whom they trust to protect their secrets can´t themesleves trust the guy at the top to protect them. Anyone in BO´s cabal knows that he cold-bloodedly turned his back on Amb. Stevens - why would anyone really trust him with their careers or LIVES after that? Also, is the real story here making the generals look foolish & weak so that BO can easily install more moslem-sympathizing generals in their places? Look at how the mid-east is now dominated by the moslem brotherhood. Think the NASA moslem "outreach" program. And one more thing -there has been a lot of excited talk about seccession by more and more states. IF this is for real - it is at the very least, a way to keeps up the pressure on our Feds. They know, now, that they are not so well-loved or trusted & the states might just do something about it. If nothing else, the movement is a bargaining chip - a threat of action - to get states rights back.

I´m becoming more cynical. Had a feeling the admin was screwing around with the general. As for the general. As head of the CIA he should have known the consequences. Like black mail, like giving away secrets to protect his arse. And what to you suppose will become of Barack "Hugo Chavez" 0bama? Not a damn thing will happen. Swept under the persian carpet. Deny deny deny until no one gives a flying you-know-what. Always remember Chris Stevens. Tyrone Jones. Sean Smith. Glenn Dorherty.

Seriously, think about this. Could it be the good general is pulling a Samson on Obammy? You destroyed me by playing on my weakness for women --- I lost my strength & I was blinded by it all --- but now I will pull the temple down with you in it!

David P. WAS being blackmailed by none other than people he worked with but he knew it was Obammy himself who was behind it. So what does a real soldier do when he let´s down his own troops? He doesn´t just fall on his own sword if he can kill himself by killing the traitor too. Maybe ... just maybe ... the good general wanted Obammy to win as the only way to really get him.

By resigning the day of the election, and now agreeing to voluntarily testify, the General is sending the message that I am dead ... but so are you! You´re coming with me over the cliff because that is the only way to make things right.

If the General pulls Obama down, he will be a hero again and may realize that it is the only way back into the light from out of his personal darkness. Beware, General, your life many be in danger but I think you know that and now no longer care. Obama destroyed everything you love & hold dear so what do you have to loose now? HOWEVER --- Obama´s entire presidency may be hanging now. This is much more serious than most realize about what is really going on behind the scenes.

Back in the olden days when I worked for a PD in Texas, the gals who liked to hang around the cops were called ´fender lizards´. I guess the women who follow the rock stars are called ´groupies´ and probably worse. Wonder what we should call those who hang around and cultivate the attention of generals? They may be well-educated, well-married and high profile but, in my humble opinion, they still fall into a somewhat dubious category.

Thankfully, despite his affair, David Petraeus has many more friends in the military than Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro. Petraeus friends will have his back now that they know BHO/BS was behind the blackmail. The old say, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Do names like Reggie, Donald come to mind?

David Petraeus is a trained killer. One would think twice about trying to take Petraeus out in the way Brietbart left us. This would lead to a military coup -- those generals have access to big guns and troops. They should seize the billions of rounds of ammo purchased by Homeland Security, Social Security and other agencies.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

With the rocky rollout of his health care law in a post-deadline lull, President Obama will move this week to shake up his health care team, accepting the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and tapping his budget director as a troubleshooting replacement, the White House confirmed Thursday. Mrs. Sebelius, a former Kansas governor who has served as HHS secretary for Mr. Obama’s entire tenure, was the president’s point person as his signature law stumbled out of the blocks in October. Despite calls for her to be fired, Mrs. Sebelius stayed on the job to oversee a

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia. He is upset at supposed divisiveness and rudeness directed at him when testifying before Congress, and suggests not too subtly that he and President Obama have been accorded inordinately harsh treatment (fill in the blanks why). Aside from the fact that he seemed to have relished the combat with Representative Gohmert in quite unprofessional tones (“you don’t want to go there, buddy, alright?”/ “good luck with your asparagus”), he seems to forget what former attorney general Alberto Gonzales once endured both in the liberal media and before Democrats

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States. Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C.

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
