Dan Majestic writes from Washington: Well, wouldn’t you know it! David Petraeus, the top dog in the CIA, has resigned over an extramarital affair.
We are told that General Petraeus was caught with his pants down, by the FBI of all people, and it was supposedly considered such a big thing that he stepped down blaming his ‘bad judgement’. Swingers command respect of the liberal left and are portrayed as basically good eggs out for a bit of harmless fun.
Mr Petraeus was pushed out for failing to predict the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, in Libya, that resulted in four Americans getting killed, including the much loved US ambassador.
The CIA, as any other secret service, has to monitor the banks and big corporations that are always plotting against the rest, and it failed on that occasion. So CIA’s failures could not have been the reason General Petraeus went. So I figure General Petraues said something very politically incorrect and the FBI picked it up and reported to the very top.
