    Scandal probe ensnares commander of U.S., NATO troops in Afghanistan
    FBI Agent in Petraeus Case Under Scrutiny

    Apparently they forgot to ask themselves, “What could possibly go wrong with keeping the adulterous affair of a high-ranking national security official a secret?”
    Petraeus hoped affair would stay secret and he could keep his job as CIA director
    He forgot that Obama didn’t run on ‘hope’ this time.
    Was Petraeus forced out to silence his account of Benghazi killings?
    That’s the logical conclusion, so naturally, we’ll be asked to believe the illogical conclusion.

    Like most conservatives, I’ve been feeling sucker-punched since Election Day. But, man-oh-man!! Secession? Layoffs? Obamacare opt-outs? Wow, elections really do have consequences!

    Michelle would probably see to their demise anyway with her war against what we eat, so this should be good news to her.

    The fish rots from the head down.   These are not distinguished generals, these are the brown-snouted swine that sold their souls and their country for a promotion.    These swine accepted rules of engagement which threatened the safety of their soldiers.  They are what is expected when Barack chooses.    Does an honest general serve his country or a traitor who would destroy it?   A man cannot serve two masters.
