EXCLUSIVE: David Petraeus was brought down after betrayal by vengeful CIA agents and his own bodygua

Brandon Webb, a former Navy SEAL, and Jack Murphy, a former Green Beret, reveal the new claims in their book 'Benghazi: The Definitive Report'
Petraeus was humiliated after a 'palace coup' by high-level intelligence officers who did not like the way he was running the CIA, authors say
The book also claims that Petraeus and Ambassador Chris Stevens were caught off guard by Benghazi consulate attack because they weren't briefed about on-going U.S. military operations in Libya
Webb and Murphy say Benghazi attack was a retaliation for secret raids authorized by Obama security adviser John Brennan


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 was running the agency - focusing more on paramilitary operations than intelligence analysis. They used their political clout and their connections to force an FBI investigation of his affair with Paul Broadwell and make it public, according to 'Benghazi: The Definitive Report.'
'It was high-level career officers on the CIA who got the ball rolling on the investigation. It was basically a palace coupe to get Petraeus out of there,' Jack Murphy, one of the authors, told MailOnline.

2. I was buying it all.

 

Right up until the garage scene. Then it became a bit over the top. Still a really good show for all that.

I hate that they made that scumbag Russo my congressman.

3. Hold up now. This is self-contradictory on its face. These 2

would not have been able to uncover what they say they did. And, it's impossible that Petraeus and Stephens hadn't been briefed re ongoing US military ops in Libya, especially since Petraeus allegedly concentrated more on paramilitary ops than Intel. This is a planted story, printed quickly in order to further an agenda.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Things could get interesting.

5. Had to be something like this

In terms of the CIA, it's all secret until somebody doesn't want it to be.
