Exclusive: David Petraeus was
brought down after betrayal
by vengeful CIA agents and
his own bodyguards who made
sure his affair was exposed,
claims new book

Daily Mail (UK), by Michael Zennie

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/10/2013 2:02:04 AM

David Petraeus was betrayed by his own bodyguards and vengeful high-ranking enemies in the CIA, who made sure his affair with his biographer was exposed to the public, a new book claims. MailOnline can reveal a new angle on the story that rocked Washington last fall. It comes from two retired special operations commandos - a Navy SEAL and a Green Beret - who say they discovered a plot against the former CIA director while doing research about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Senior CIA officers targeted Petraeus because they didn´t like the way he

These revelations should be enough to justifiably scuttle John Brennan´s nomination.

I said from the beginning that it was fishy that the FBI would put so much effort into a Fl. socialite´s complaint. Now we see the real reason,Petraeus was sold out by career agents at the CIA.

Then you have Brennan carrying out secret attacks behind the scenes with nobody knowing about them. This should make his nomination hearings very interesting.

All this just shows what a bunch of renegades we have running this country and foreign policy. Panetta was a stooge to get gays an uptick along with women in combat,two long time gripes by left wing activists.

Obama now wants a 1% raise for government workers while cutting military pay.

I still think the drone strike in Yemen was fishy also and even more so because the Saudis gave Obama a launch site.

Kind of explains why Panetta and the Joint Chief never heard from Obama, the WH or the State Dept after the afternoon breif. Brennan was running the show from the White House.

Petraeus is done ... it´s Brennan who´s the real focus of the article, despite the title.

The Webb/Murphy ebook should bring down Brennan´s nomination to DCIA.

It should bring down Obama for dereliction of duty too. It is clear that Obama takes absolutely no responsibility for foreign operations, except when post facto he grabs credit for successful ops.

...this is a narrative that makes sense and lends an explanation to many of the various actions that have taken place...

...I can understand Petraeus not being a good fit for the CIA culture, but Brennan running operations "off the books" with White House approval raises red flags that need to be flying on 0bama´s doorstep...

...too many examples of chief executive totally detached while others run amok...

Petraeus brought himself down. You can´t easily hide dirty secrets from an agency whose primary job is spying. He was a good soldier but got too big for his uniform.

As for Obama, his day will come. The sham presidency is starting to unravel, one string at a time.

I don´t see Petraeus as anything other than a company man. He didn´t resign when ordered to follow Rules of Engagement that would add significantly to the death toll of American troops. Long ago he went along with the Pentagon myth regarding how Pat Tillman was shot. His downfall was the downfall of his zipper.

As for Brennan, he´s a typical slimy creature who would willingly work for this America hating creature in our White House.

Brennan has gone rougue in the ugliest way. There is no leadership at the top so he filled the vacuum.

The mystery is why we suddenly decided to lead from behind in Libya and remove Kaddaffi in days not weeks. (remember that)

The jihadists in Libya are now spread throughout the arab world creating havoc. Starvation, murders, and a return to the dark ages for the citizens.

and all along I was thinking it was a classic honey pot operation orchestrated out of the W.H. Instead it was the old boys at Langley. The CIA KGB Operations during the Cold War would be proud. If we had a real Media in this country instead of a propaganda arm of the Democrats this would be bringing down the Administration. Unfortunately we don´t so it won´t.

# 3 and # 11 are correct. Patraeus brought this on himself due to his own dishonorable actions.

Yet, I can´t seem to cheer for those who undermined him. There seems to be a massive void in leadership within our government.

*The WH and Brennan knew of Petraeus´s affair before he was even nominated to CIA...he was an alter boy figurehead for Brennan and Obama´s dirty antiAmerican Ops
.....keep in mind Brennan pulled his name back from CIA nomination before ... So he set up Petraeus in order to humiliate him while making himself look good by comparison to get confirmed...this is a sick rogue operator...and I believe a Muslim working with the Saudi´s

Brennan was doing the missile running ops out of Benghazi, arming the enemy, turning power and weapons to The Muslim Brotherhood

The complaint the CIA wasn´t political enough. IT´S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE POLITICAL AT ALL.


(Deputy National Security Advisor) John Brennan also ran a highly compartmentalized program out of the White House in regard to weapons transfers, and Stevens would not have been trusted with that type of information. Stevens likely helped consolidate as many weapons as possible after the war to safeguard them, at which point Brennan exported them overseas to start another conflict.

Stevens had secretly met with Inhoef the week before his death...probably to report on missile running by Obama and Brennan and Thetis secret illegal wars

Brennan was running a rogue CIA from the White House

Petraeus more than anyone else secured Obama´s re-election when he gave misleading testimony supporting the nonsense video excuse for the Bengazhi attack in front of the Senate a few days after the outrage. His reputation neutered the Senate critics, who were enraged at Petraeus´s dishonesty, but could not go after him because he was a sacred cow.

Petraeus betrayed his country, although not in the way the liberals initially claimed he would do. The administration dumped him after he served his purpose of securing Obama´s re-election. Thanks to him, we have four more years of Obama.

It’s hard for me to believe that high-level career officers on the CIA” would leave Panneta in tact and purge Petraeus. (After all, these folks did go through background, security checks.) That “they didn´t like the way he (Petraeus) was running the agency - focusing more on paramilitary operations than intelligence analysis”, makes no sense, since it was Brennan who was running covert wars out of the White House. And where is the press? They sure got their panties in a twist over Iran-Contra.

Long article but worth the read. The general wasn´t perfect, but I would guess many of the critics that jumped on board about him having an affair have been or are doing the same. DC is a cesspool of corruption since worthless people vote for the bammy. I do so hope they are happy. Kind of wonder if bammy and reggie are being outed soon.

First of all - the man betrayed himself -- just as bubba clinton betrayed himself with the mouth.....

Not a surprise that the CIA and FBI didn´t like the NON/CIA/FBI person taking the "top/job"...... It happens all the time in business. The outsider should watch his back....

The fact that he didn´t and let some "tata" change the course of history -- says it all.... The man was thinking with the wrong head....

It sounds like the CIA is running their own little war these days and Obama is the general calling the shots or if not him, definitely someone close to him. Petraeus was put in the CIA because they thought they could control him with the affair. I think he wanted to come clean about Benghazi and that was when the WH threw him under the bus.
It is pretty scary to think the CIA is running things now because these people do not go through confirmation and seem only to be accountable to the prez. There is no light of day shed on what they are doing. The worst is, they seem to mostly be comprised of leftists with the same mindset.

I have stated mant times my questions concerning the starting of the ARAB SPRING; i.e., who initiated it, who kept it spreading, why the backing of the muslim brotherhood in all of these areas and this brings some answers to my questions.
IMO between obama, brennan and jarrett and probably a few others is where the idea was hatched.

Brennan carrying out his little game---at the suggestion, agreement, cooperation of obama certainly paints a bold outlined picture. Indeed, how rapidly the information about a 15 minute trailer on the internet was blamed for Benghazi-------that took researching and was the ready answer for obama´s actions. Not ordering any support to Benghazi could possibly answer the questions about the paranoid obama thinking Stevens had uncovered his role in the Arab Spring in so many countries and this was a convenient way to keep him quite.

OK. So Petraeus brought about his own downfall because he couldn´t keep his zipper closed. However, that information that slowly leaks out from D.C. indicates that the whole Petraeus operation was planed. Someone had to fall to provide cover for those who are and have been behind all of the trash comming out of the WH. This article begins to point out the truth. And just to remind everyone, SEALS and Green Beret´s tend to develop lifetime ties to their fellow comrads. And two former SEALS were killed in the Benghazi affair. These guys are very likely attempt to find out the who and why. So, if we take it as a given that these guys have deep contacts in the CIA and other intelligence agencies, then I tend to believe them. Especially when it looks like that Obozo does everything possible to keep someone else between himself and whatever is going, just in case something goes wrong. And it usually does when such stupidity is in charge.

Well wait a minute, when Petraeus is at the CIA he is no longer in the military chain of command, is that a shock? Sounds like he didn´t realize it. How dumb was he? Also that DC is a hornet´s nest and there are no secrets there. But his real mistake, I suppose, was trying to take his job seriously, always a risk, and in the Obamanation a fatal one.

Interesting read & comments.

This Brennan guy is also accused of being a convert to Islam. That would disqualify him to me.

Lindsay Graham is out on a limb about Benghazi. He has threatened to hold up some cabinet posts which makes him "political" according to many in Government. I hope he gets some support and that he stands firm.

Put Brennan in the "hold" category also. He is noxious.

Glen Beck noted Panetta was drawing attention to the Presidents absence and dereliction of duty on 9/11 for the reason to keep attention away from the missile running....This is but another false wall to distract...and lead us to another part of the scheme ...and a protective wall...to shield the president from claims that are coming ...of arms running to AlQaeda

When Panetta stated he, Hillary and Dempsey wanted to arm the rebels in Syria (who are AlQaeda)...but Obama disagreed...it was the beginning of the wall of protection

...as the British press reported the weapons used in Algeria in the murder/hostage situation at the BP facility....by AlQaeda.... came from Libya...Same thing Syria

Well, well, well. It´s all beginning to unravel. Of all the things that came out since 9-11-12, this makes the most sense. The puzzle pieces are beginning to make a picture now. Panetta and Hillary´s testimony was pure cr@p. None of that made sense at all, but then again it wasn´t supposed to. Of course they have been asking the wrong questions. No one thought to put John Brennan into the mix. I had a feeling that Petraeus was the key to this whole mess, and that they put him at CIA because they knew about his affair. Other than that it remained a mixture of false information eveywhere you looked. Finally someone cared enough to get out the information.

Pat Smith, you will get your answeres soon.

I love the timing of this book / article.
Hopefully, Senators on the Hill who have Brennan and Hagel in front of them incorporate this info into their questions to get real answers. Neither one deserves confirmation.

Answers to this sebacle are coming out, slowly, but they are coming out.

As for Patraeus, he is a man and as such, was vulnerable. I believe preezy wanted him at CIA to get him off the battlefield. He was an extremely good soldier and leader. He can survive.

Of all the ribbons Petraeus wears, the Combat Infantryman´s Badge is not among them. He may have never spent an entire night on the battlefield. He is more of a politician and theoretical soldier. Should have fit right in with our theoretical president.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo.

´Do you fancy jumping in the back?´ These were Prince William´s smooth words to Kate as the pair inspected the Super Hornets at Amberley Air Base shortly after touching down in Brisbane this morning. The pair is touring No 1 Squadron at the base - which is the first Super Hornet squadron outside the US. It´s a plane William won´t have flown himself in the UK - but he wasted no time stepping into the flight seat, while Kate watched on. He then stepped into the back seat - where the weapons are controlled, allowing Kate to take the pilot´s

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly "upset" and "bitter" because he feels that readers -- not the reporter who wrote the story -- took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama´s policies now wear "neckties and starched shirts" instead of KKK hoods out of context. And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party. Last week, in a story that appeared the day before Aaron was honored

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

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'

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

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
