What Did Cantor Know, and When Did He Know It ????

All the "characters" in the Petraus / Broadwell Scandal SEEM to be Republicans.

This clearly needs to be a Repooplican Scandal.

Wonder if Broadwell and the third woman, Jill Kelley, are registered Republicans?

Wonder if they've made documented political contributions?

Petraus? King wanted him to run for President.

Cantor? Boehner?

What was an FBI "employee" doing telling a Washington Congressman and then Cantor the FBI was investigating the Director of the CIA.

Certainly, neither were "in channels."

The there's this from today's Washington Post:

Prominent members of conservative, Washington-based defense think tanks were given permanent office space at his headquarters and access to military aircraft to tour the battlefield. They provided advice to field commanders that sometimes conflicted with orders the commanders were getting from their immediate bosses.

And Broadwell's "co-author," Vernon Loeb?

Fabricated the "Jessica Lynch" tale for propaganda purposes, and got nailed for doing it.

1. This is a far ranging republickcon conspiracy meant to swing the election to rMoney

 

install petraus' girlfriend as National Security Advisor while maintaining cover for their affair and attacking Iran for the oiligarchs.

The President foiled all of this. He is truly a hero.

6. Voters are the heros

The President foiled all of this. He is truly a hero.
We made it happen.

Obama's our candidate because he represents his constituents, us.

I'm willing to share in the spoils however.

the vote could well have been different.

He is heroic.

11. I follow your thinking and share your assessment of the President.

But could you flesh out a little more exactly what might have happened, strategically?

I can't figure out how Petraeus ended up under the bus on this one. Who put him there?

12. He was attempting to swing the election by leaking (what was actually false) information

 

through his girlfriend to rove and rMoney and faux noise. petraus thought that rMoney would win, he would keep his job, rMoney would sweep the infidelity under the rug and make his girlfriend National Security Adviser. The FBI did their job, even though a partisan busholini leave behind tried to blow the cover on the operation, The President kept a lid on it until after the election and accepted the resignation after it could not be used by either side politically.

There will be extensive criminal charges against petraus, his girlfriend, rove, issa and canter as well as any other accessories in this treason.

14. Sorry, I'm dense.

So, the false information was that the CIA had been questioning Libyans? Or something else?

And the blown cover on the operation was the whistleblower's talking to Cantor?

Where did Petraeus think he would land after this whole shakeup? Was the NSA advisor a benevolent gift to Ms. Broadwell, or, did she demand the position in exchange for her silence about the general?

Twisted little tale.

15. The false info was that Benghazi station requested assistance

 

and The President denied them.

This was the meme that faux noise and oxyrush were pushing.

18. Thank you

So he thought that the false info would be enough to prevent the President's re-election? But it just wasn't enough, or the real facts came to light?

I guess I still don't understand why Petraeus was scandalized so very publicly...did he piss someone off? Is the sexual angle of the story there to distract us from something much more sinister?

I just heard on Rachel that Andrea Mitchell was the reporter who broke the story. Somehow I find that very interesting.

2. Tinfoil hat time: Cantor tried blackmailing Petraeus?

The biggest coincidence in all of this is the timing: Petraeus resigning just as he was about to testify about Benghazi. Could it be that he was pressured by Republicans to blame the President?

On the other hand, it may have just been a coincidence since it happened right after the election.

4. Set aside the tinfoil hat

What did Cantor know?

When did he know it?

With whom did he share it?

Why aren't Petraeus and Broadwell (and anyone connected to what they were doing) facing criminal charges?

Why isn't the FBI "employee" who went out of channels to report to the Repoops being investigated?

Why do we know the name of Broadwell (guess she left a lot of tracks), and of Jill Kelley (who may have truly been just a friend without subtext, and not the ID of the FBI "employee?"

Lots of things to know. But whomever is feeding the media bits and pieces is doing so very selectively.

5. Yes. Missing from all the news reports.

General. Yeah. CIA Director. Yeah.
I want to hear that Petraeus is a prominent Republican.

8. As in PBO working together in a bi-partisan manner?

Gosh, he's almost as good as Mittens at reaching across the isle (only he didn't and we did).

Now if only he wasn't 50% black with a (D) by his political affiliation. I bet, if it wasn't for that, RWNJs would back him then.

10. I said early on

that I thought the Behghazi affair might be a Repooplican false flag event designed to make Obama look bad. If you understand the depth of Thuglican "rat-fucking" in the Watergate years, you understand why I'm saying this. It was never clear that the Wallace assassination attempt wasn't part of the their "rat-fucking" efforts.

These crazies who worked in the White House stored personal guns in their White House offices, performed "black bag" jobs such as the break-in at Dr. Ellsburg's office, and used Cubans who had been part of the Bay of Pigs operation in the Watergate break-in. Some of those guys had committed murder in their espionage attempts to overthrow Castro.

Fast forward to now and, if Karl Rove's name is attached to something, it's guaranteed to be bad news and probably illegal. It's exactly the type of operation a Thuglican would plan and participate in without giving it a moment's thought.

13. Other than not really caring what a former Bush stooge gets

..It smells of Cantor getting info from an insider in the FBI, and that info put into his back pocket to use for leverage at some future point. And so Petraus and the Obama admin decided they had to air this dirty laundry before it could be used at Republican's convenience.

Its not hard to deduce that Petraus has been put into the same time-out by the Republicans as Richard Clarke who dared to refuse to work under a Democratic President, right after working for H W Bush. Even more he dared to tell the truth about his Republican boss's incompentance.
