Let the FBI Catch Criminals and the Marines Kill Bad Guys

For a military officer adultery IS a crime. For a high public official adultery is proof that he/she does not deserve the public trust. It ought to be obvious that a person who has been proven willing to break the most profound promise that one human can give to another -- the marriage vows -- can never be trusted to keep any lesser promise. Such a person has shown that the gratification of his/her desires matters more than any possible duty or responsibility he/she may have. They have shown that they will certainly betray their oaths of office as readily as they betrayed their marriage oaths as soon as doing so offers sufficient personal gratification. Placing trust in an adulterer is insane. Wrote: Nov 14, 2012 9:50 AM
Well said! The new theory of everyone can do or say anything they want and not be punished because that would violate their "rights" is taking our country into some really murky waters.

It's amazing though, how many conservative or semi conservative people resign in disgrace compared to how a liberal takes it. For them, it's more of a 'who cares'. That's the problem, they have no personal honor. Their parents failed to bring them up properly or they are mentally ill or both.

And yet all the liberals still "love" Bill Clinton. I guess adultery is a crime in the military unless its' the Commander in Chief. But only a Democrat.

Petraeus is a RETIRED general, his job as CIA director is a civilian position. Sorry guys, what he did was no more a crime than what Clinton did. Dishonorable yes. But Clinton's legal crime was perjury, not adultery. What Petraeus did was not illegal as long as he did not perjure himself. On the other hand If I were in his place, my wife has informed me that I would wake up one morning without some important portions of my anatomy still attached.

We only have Petraeus's word for it that the affair began after he resigned. If he would lie to his wife of 37 years, I don't think his word is worth much. He gave Broadwell "unusual access" while he was still commander in Kabul.

This is about MUCH MORE than a simple affair,it's to "throw under the bus" and discredit a General who has knowledge of what REALLY happened with Benghazi.
As Mr.Ransom said in an earlier article,there's also General Ham and a Rear Admiral being cut loose,ALL of them involved in Benghazi.

We're receiving another snowjob here,folks.

don't forget that they knew about this affair long ago,so why is it coming out NOW?

The reality show that’s become our government isn’t just embarrassing, crass, dangerous and opportunistic- it also gets really great ratings. Must see G-O-V.  

What fiscal cliff? Have you seen the latest episode of the Benghazi Triangle?

Criminals please pay attention.

Learning how to fly planes into buildings is a shrugworthy event with the FBI, but don’t you dare email Tampa-Socialite-Jill Kelley.

Because she might feel threatened if she’s told electronically that she standing too close to your guy.   

Also, taking off your shirt and snapping a few candid photos is OK too- if you have the...
