FOX is trying to pin prior knowledge of Petraeus affair on the Prez

They went to commercial, but they will probably hack at this every hour at least.

No mention of Cantor at all, of course.

This could head up the Faux top 10 reasons why they lost.

6. Why didn't Cantor tell the administration?

As a sworn official of the government, isn't he supposed to defend and protect?

9. Read my post

One thing about people in power,
even separate power factions will band together
if they're threatened by an outsider.

I suspect Cantor and other members of Congress
agreed to stonewall the story until after the election.

24. If Diane Feinstein is to be believed

This information never reached the intelligence committees. Dave Reichert told Cantor. Did Boehner know? I also find it hard to believe the FBI director Muller never gave the President a heads up. Don't these people talk to one another? If Obama was kept in the dark he must be righteously pissed. It just strikes me as a very strange way to run a government.

8. This is looking more and more like a Rove/Romney attempt

to influence the election.

Somebody was digging around,
the Patraeus affair was apparently an "open secret",
they tried to drag it in to influence the election
and Congress / FBI decided to stonewall
and not let it be used that way.

He had to decide which affair to reveal to get out of the hearing

instead of all of them

How can the Right Wing always talk about putting America first, but they get their news from a news organization that is owned by an Australian and largest shareholder is a Saudi prince?

13. Did the President know Petraeus

was a dog? Probably. But I imagine half the GOPKKKers are dogs too. http://www.buzzfeed.com/mhastings/the-sins-of-general-david-petraeus - read this article by Michael Hastings who also outed McChrystal.

14. Quite frankly, I think Dave Reichert might be in a whole heap of trouble

The fact that he went to Cantor rather than immediately back to the FBI is a serious issue indeed. he could get time for this.

Cantor at least covered himself. he met with an FBI employee leaking information about an ongoing investigation and went directly back to the FBI with it. He covered himself. Reichert, on the other hand, may be criminally liable.

18. They are being cautious in their approach.

They have mentioned the President twice, Cantor not at all, and Feinstein a lot because the ball is now in her court.

19. Feeble.

Petraeus was Bush's guy, for one thing. For another, unlike Republicans, Obama does not aspire to control other people's sexual decisions.

21. Was reading Sic Semper Tyrannis, Petraeus II..and a comment referred to Broadwell/loose lips?

Paula Broadwell spoke late Oct 2012 at a University of Denver Alumni Symposium and at about 35 min responds to a question by saying that the CIA Annex the night it was attacked held Lybian Militia members...

Was that generally known?

The video of The event is on YouTube.. Sorry I'm tech deficient..

Interesting viewing..35 min on...
