By now you’ve heard that Gen. David Patraeus has resigned from his post atop the CIA thanks to the media blitz about his sex scandal. The meme on from the right was “We know more about Patraeus after two days than Fast and Furious after two years and Benghazi after two months.” That’s spot on.
This is of course in the wake of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, of which an investigation is taking place. How convenient it is that a person in the position of knowing something has a scandal brought against him at the same time! What a coincidence! Can’t subpoena him now (or whatever the technicality is).
What is interesting is that the General’s “special friend,” Paula Broadwell spoke publically about the Benghazi attack being about a terror group responding to the CIA holding Libyan militia members in detention. Well… that’s sure a more realistic motivator than a Youtube video, wouldn’t you say?
The CIA denies this because an executive order was signed in 2009 that prohibits the Agency to detain folks. Cue the scene from Airplane! where the crap literally hits the fan.
What is even more egregious is that Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice is being considered for Secretary of State. This is a person who went on five shows five days after the attack and claimed they were spontaneous. Senator Jeff Corker from Tennessee said it best in that she either lied on purpose or she was out of the loop- both are bad!
All of us conservatives knew Benghazi-gate smelled fishy, it’s just too bad this didn’t come out before the election. Or that Mitt Romney was just barely, almost, kind of, sort of, a little bit forceful on the issue.
Well, there’s no crying over spilled blood! Because after hearing the news, the President leaped into… bed. He had to get up early for that fundraiser in Las Vegas the next day, you know.
The President has played over 100 rounds of golf since he has been in office; eighteen holes 25 times a year is a good amount for anyone. What’s the pricetag on that, Mr. President? Also, who paid for it- you or the taxpayer?
Nevermind. I support Barry on the links! He can’t do any damage when he’s not running the country, right?
At least he can’t be blamed for lying or knowing something radioactive when he really doesn’t know. Thank goodness for plausible deniability and unelected cabinet members making the tough choices so the President doesn’t have to get his hands dirty.
