10. Their assertion on that it was all to shut him up yes, but it's worse than that.

Patraeus will try to be remembered for one honorable thing, all he has left is telling the truth about LIbya, whatever that may be.

2. The good stuff -- Libyan manpads and terrorists to Syria -- is all going to be behind closed doors.

We'll just get to see the sex questions. Titter, titter, woo-hoo! Hubba hubba!

6. A lot of military terms, like "force insertion", "missile erector", "spasmatic conflict", are like

listening to a bunch of horny 13 year-olds in a locker room. As an institution, the Army doesn't exactly encourage sensitivity.

7. And I'm sure the right will say it's because

they howled about the "timing" of his resignation. That he wouldn't have testified if they hadn't made a stink about it.

12. Why should we trust you on this? I think the opposite is true...

...that Mr. Petraeus is being forced to testify, in lieu of jail time--probably by Leon Panetta. The scandal with his highly suspect--and, God knows, strange--girlfriends--is only the tip of the iceberg of Petraeus misconduct, and very probable crimes (if not outright treason), in my opinion. But I admit it's an opinion--and speculation, at this point. Why should we "trust you" that Petraeus testifying on Benghazi is "his gambit"? You have an inside source?

8. Patraeus wanted this!!! Look out.

He only had his career to lose, legacy maybe, but, if he went ahead and called "someones bluff" and resigned allowing for all of this to come out on his own timing and stil testify!, He has something to say, what honor he has left he will cash in big time. This is just getting started. Heads will roll.

11. I

 

think he can say whatever he wants but this is just a political goose chase when we have more important things to do. Is the investigation about what happened concluded yet? These side investigations are just attempts by certain Polticians to make something out of nothing there. They will fall flat on their faces again. When the dust clears, I think the people driving this charade should be driven out of Congress. And I'll make this clear, I really want this fight with the GOP hacks like John McCain and especially Senator Graham of South Carolina. I want it all on a national stage to expose th people of South Carolina what Graham really represents. McCain needs to be exposed also as a fraud. Neither represent everybody in their States but just a certain constituency.
