Quick! Predict how the right will spin Petraeus' resignation into an Obama cover-up.

Everybody put on your tin-foil hats and decide how Faux News et al. will try to spin the resignation into something sinister and underhanded that Obama did. I want to be ready for whatever BS they come up with.

2. It's already been done.

Just go back and look how they reacted to the Mark Sanford extramarital affair.

3. They threatened Petraeus and made him lie about an affair in order to cover up Benghazi.

Forcing him to resign. Then they'll throw him under the bus during the hearings on Benghazi to coverup their own guilt. He's their sacrificial lamb. With a bible reference like that, the loonies will go absolutely nuts. He'll be their martyr now.

Because they really are. Just. That. Stupid.

4. Election's over. We don't all have to go to battle stations over everything now.

This probably is over Benghazi and the botched regime change operations in Libya and Syria. But, the question is how much detail will eventually come out about Petraeus' role vis-a-vis top policymakers..

8. Probably close.

I suspect White House was looking in to who was leaking Bengazi info to Woodward, Fox, and GOP, and in the process found out about Patreous's affair.

Obama administration officials to brief intelligence committees on Benghazi

By Pam Benson

Senior intelligence, State Department and FBI officials can expect to be grilled next week as congressional hearings resume on the terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya that killed four Americans. Lawmakers want answers to many outstanding questions surrounding the September 11 armed assault on the diplomatic facility and a CIA annex in Benghazi.

Specifically, they want to know who was responsible, whether it was planned, the intelligence reporting on the threat to Libya prior the attack, and whether security was adequate.

The Senate Intelligence Committee will conduct a closed-door hearing on November 15. Scheduled witnesses include Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director David Petraeus, Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy, FBI Deputy Director Sean Joyce and National Counterterrorism Center Director Matt Olsen. Clapper, Petraeus and Olsen will also testify behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee on the same day.

7. And the winner is...

The commenters are going with the story that he was being blackmailed into keeping quiet about the Big Benghazi Conspiracy. (Now they're hoping he'll "sing" about whatever evil things Obama is supposed to have done.)

10. My bet is the opposite.

That Patreous was the leak, either directly or indirectly through his lover, and WH gave him option of resigning over affair or prosecution for passing classified information.
