Gen. David Petraeus’s sudden resignation as CIA director on Friday is shocking, but what is more shocking is how the GOP and the media is handling this issues. Not they are wondering if his resignation is apart of some sort of conspiracy to cover up for what happen in Benghazi, Libya since Gen. David Petraeus was to testify in the coming days. I find this laughable. For one while the GOP and the media was blaming the President for what happen in Benghazi. They never once put any blame on the CIA director (David Petraeus) for providing bad intelligence when the attack was classified as a protest gone violent. Where was there outrage at David Petraeus. His name was never even mentioned as a person who was part of the problem. Now, the GOP has a different angel. They think David Petraeus was forced out before he can tell the truth about Benghazi. The great White Knight. What a fantasy!
Now, will the media fall for this angel like they did with Mitt Romney amazing internal polling data. Or will they look at the cold hard facts? Usually the simplest available theory is the correct one. Just image if David Petraeus was having an affair with a married women? I think he would need to resign. Not only will he drag his family through the mud, he would also drag another family through it as well. David Petraeus did the right thing!
UPDATE: It has been reported in Politico that "House Majority Leader Eric Cantor spoke to an FBI whistle-blower two weeks ago who accused then-CIA Director David Petraeus of having an extramarital affair and potentially jeopardizing the security of classified information". http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83681.html?hp=l1
So now we know top GOP officials knew of these allegations long before the President. Why didn't they push this story to hurt the President during an election year? Because they were more concerned about hurting their white knight David Petraeus. They thought this will hurt us more then the President, so House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Rep. David Reichert (R-Wash.) sat on this information. The question is why?
Crimea is a peninsula on the northern coast of the Black Sea. The Autonomous Republic of Crimea occupies most of the peninsula, while the City of Sevastopol occupies the rest.
