The Petraeus scandal has fallen off the radar while rethugs keep the Susan Rice nonsense in

the media, who will chase anything sordid. What a world! Until we rid government of crusty old men who seek to be worshipped, not a damn thing is going to happen for the American people. Just collecting my thoughts.

1. It's called obfuscation

I'm betting Petraeus knows way more about those deaths than Rice .

2. That could be the real story to come.

Something really smelling has yet to come out of this. There was a story back a couple of years ago about President Obama warning the CIA regarding F-ups. If they messed up again,a major house cleaning was to occur,similar to what Jimmy Carter proposed. Meaning pounding the final nail in their coffin.

3. If Obama tries to clean house at the CIA I'll be expecting another Presidential Assassination

I think too many in the CIA and closely related to the CIA thought JFK was a threat and we see how that ended.

5. Have you noticed the violent language they use re the Rice story?

The press is regularly using violent language like "beat down", a "real uppercut". "a slap in the face", "a real body blow",etc. This is the language they are using AGAINST Susan Rice to describe the republicans attacks against her. Words defending her are few and far between. The press wants us to forget how the Republicans revealed another undercover CIA operation in Bengazi, during their televised hearings, so they're diverting attention by creating a bullshit scandal.

6. Interesting how fast that went away

To be fair, it was clear that it was just general seediness (pun!) and of no policy import whatsoever, but that's been true of many sex scandals far less interesting than the Broadwell-Twin-Sisters-Petraeus flap.
