Petraeus and Benghazi: A Time for Truth

Then, there's the weird aspect of Petraeus' affair. Why compromise your own CIA Director, leaving him open to potential blackmail? Why did Republicans who learned about the affair withhold the information til after the election. (Oh, that's easy--Republicans and Democrats are just two wings the same party.) Did the Administration WANT a "bloody nose" as an excuse to ramp up war operations as a potential "October Surprise"?
The stunning resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, days before he was to testify on the CIA role in the Benghazi massacre, raises many more questions than his resignation letter answers.

"I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair," wrote Petraeus. "Such behavior is unacceptable ... as the leader of an organization such as ours."

The problem: Petraeus' "unacceptable behavior," adultery with a married mother of two, Paula Broadwell, that exposed the famous general to blackmail, began soon after he became director in 2011.

Was his security detail at the CIA and were his closest associates oblivious to the fact...
