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.

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.

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...

About the millions of large caliber, hollow point ammo....

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.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. 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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. 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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. 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'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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

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. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen.

Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

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,

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
