Heat’s on President Obama as collateral damage from Gen. David Petraeus’ two-timing hits Gen. John Allen

The President, his Election Day momentum stalled by a mountain of salacious headlines, is trying to replace key members of his cabinet and national security team as angry congressional leaders demand answers about the Petraeus affair and why they were given zero advance notice of the spymaster’s lively love life.

The seedy scandal surrounding Gen. David Petraeus has now imperiled his successor as commander in Afghanistan, given the U.S. military a black eye and embarrassed America on the world stage.

The fallout from the shenanigans has also left President Obama with a huge headache as he tries to pull American forces out of Afghanistan by 2014, ending the country’s longest war.

The President, his Election Day momentum stalled by a mountain of salacious headlines, is trying to replace key members of his cabinet and national security team as angry congressional leaders demand answers about the Petraeus affair and why they were given zero advance notice of the spymaster’s lively love life.

With the frat house-like atmosphere surrounding the top defenders of the United States, no one is sure where this “Greek tragedy,” as one politician called it, will wind up.

The sexcapades that have made America’s top brass a laughingstock came to light when raven-haired bombshell Jill Kelley complained to the FBI about sketchy emails and touched off the probe that doomed Petraeus as CIA director.

Now, the collateral damage from Petraeus’ two-timing has hit Gen. John Allen, whose appointment to head NATO forces in Europe has been put on hold after it turns out he and Kelley exchanged a blizzard of sometimes “flirtatious” emails.

    The only worthwhile tidbit of information that came out of the president’s otherwise absurd and useless so called “press conference” today was his admission that it was on his instructions that Susan Rice was sent to all of the Sunday TV talk shows to lie about Benghazi, which, of course, he will deny the next time that he is asked about it. (sigh) Four more years of this insanity with that sleazy, incompetent putz.

    The Secret Service, the CIA, the military, Bureau of Land Management, etc…. have all been exposed to be living la vida loca, drinking, infidelity, lying…. … as if they have no respect at all for Public Office. It must be a reflection of their regard for the man at the top.

    Contrast that with Reagan needing to wear a coat and tie in the Oval Office out of respect for his Office.

    Unruly Refugee I’m hoping they were Blackmailing his ass when Benghazi first occurred and then he finally decided screw it. He originally backed up dumb shits claims of the spontaneous demonstration due to a video, then later changed his tune. If this is the case it would have been damn nice if he had his epiphany before the election.

    If Patraeus truly cared about performing his patriotic duty for the US, he wouldn’t be in this mess right now!!!!! If it didn’t matter during his whole military career, why would it suddenly be a big whoop dee doo to him now?

    He is a narcissist. He will do and say whatever it takes to serve himself. And narcissists don’t commit suicide or hari kari. He will need help for that.

    I think you guys need to pay more attention to what Ann Barnhardt has been trying to warn us about all these characters who float in the upper echelons of the elitist cesspool that is DC.

    Regardless of the man fucking around on his wife, he is a brilliant war strategist and commander. My son was fighting in Afghanistan when Petraeus was there; he says that EVERYBODY loved and respected the man and that it was obvious that they could finally gain the upper hand in the war against the savages with Petraeus in command.

    0bama didn’t like that and so he had the general removed. The plan is not to win. 0bama hates the word, “victory” unless it is our enemies shouting it.

    I don’t condone cheating. But I give credit where credit is due.

    If 0bama had been president during the Gulf War we probably would have been told that General Herbert Norman Schwarzkopf had a gay muslim lover or some shit like that.

    0bama will use whatever means necessary to get what he wants. And he doesn’t want us killing his people — muslims.

    Yes, the man failed us. I think you are right that he blackmail goes back a ways.
    We would never be hearing about this if Petraeus were left alone and allowed to do his job.
    I think it all started, if I remember correctly, when the general said something disrespectful about the Bastard 0bama, right before he was relieved of his command too.
    There are consequences for pissing that NIGGER off. And I say that just as disrespectfully as possible. The word fits snugly.

    Look guys, our guy, Patraeus, he screwed up big time. He went to military school, he worked his way up the military ladder. He was well schooled on the rules. It is against the law for these guys to engage in adulterous relationships for a reason. Espionage being the key word. Or being put in a compromising position for the enemy to exploit.

    And as we are now understanding, that enemy can turn out to be our very own President. Any starred General must expect to be playing war games 24/7 in their personal lives and within the military. These guys are supposed to be on the forefront of keeping our nation safe from our enemies. Sexy babes coming at them all goo goo eyed. Caving in to that BS instead of recognizing it for what it really is, for what they have been schooled to recognize and be very, very wary of.

    Our General, he screwed up! He allowed this young woman to get way too cozy with him. And because of that very poor strategic move, he allowed the Obysmal camp to out flank him.

    What is it about ‘Discretion is the better part of valor’ that Patraeus didn’t understand?

    They set him up and you are right, he fell for it. I’d bet they put something in his drink to get things started too.

    But it is still all 0bama’s fault. He could have left the man alone from the start and we would be out of Afghanistan by now. This is payback for insulting the traitor-in-chief.

    @unruly,
    You are beginning to understand now how treacherous and serious it really is for any one who swims in these halls of power. It’s almost impossible for us common folk to even wrap our brains around the games within games that take place in these spheres. The enemy is every where and it is always looking for and waiting to exploit even the most niggling of openings. Patraeus knew this. He knew it.

    Obysmal is not at fault – HE IS THE ENEMY!!!! Obysmal is doing what an enemy combatant does!!!! Taking out the generals by any means necessary.

    Patraeus alone made the choice to compromise his honor, his family, his army, his nation, me, you, your son. I am as sorrowful as you are over awful mess. He can still redeem himself, if he does in fact testify to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help him God.

    We shall see.

    Patraeus is already destroyed. He did that to himself, no one brought him so low but his own self.

    If he really and truly does tell the truth before Congress and the American people, I hope we will recognize it thus. Beyond that it is all between himself and God.

    I’m not an ‘I told you so’ kind of person. That’s not my place in the scheme of life, living, learning and interacting with my fellow man.

    You will come away from these Congressional hearings with your own opinions. I mine. We may or may not share them here. But if we care to discuss the matter here, we’ll do it with respect for one another.

    I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am that we are even still able to come here and have discussions, whether we agree or not. No thanks to the likes of Patraeus and how many more upper echelon military people who have compromised our God given freedoms for momentary titillations. We shall soon discover whether the man has a conscience or not, depending on his testimony.

    I was thinking of Patraeus having woven a wicked web of deceit over his shenanigans. It is my hope that he can now turn that web into a good thing and draw Obysmal and his cadre of evil doers within its deadly stickiness and drop the whole ugly mob down upon his sword. If he is succesful, he will be redeemed. If not…I don’t much want to think about that tonight.
