When Did Obama Know About Petraeus' Affair?
Did he know about it months ago, which seems likely?
Did he tell Petraeus to resign after the election?
If Petraeus had to resign because he was compromised, he was compromised months ago.
Did Obama leave a compromised head of the CIA in place to avoid some difficult politics?
Petraeus' testimony about this -- not the affair, but Obama's knowledge of it and offers to resign -- is now required.
Ben Shapiro on Breitbart
Now that the Obama administration has succeeded in winning a second term, they are cleaning house. The two figures most linked to the disaster in Benghazi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Petraeus, are gone. The figure most linked with Fast and Furious, Eric Holder, will be gone. The figure most linked to the administration’s economic failures, Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner, will be gone.
Only Obama remains. He ran out the clock on his scandals, and now throws anyone associated with them overboard.
The Petraeus resignation is only the most recent evidence that the Obama administration will lie to the American people to achieve its ends. But with all of his experts gone, Obama’s cabinet will now be staffed by the political C team in a time of crisis, both domestically and internationally.
Why did Obama accept Petraeus' resignation if this was all just about sex?— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) November 9, 2012
If only Petraeus had been a cigar smoker, he'd still be CIA Director.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) November 9, 2012
