Petraeus Quits; Evidence of Affair Was Found by F.B.I.
  «WASHINGTON - David H. Petraeus, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency and one of America’s most decorated four-star generals, resigned on Friday after an F.B.I. investigation uncovered evidence that he had been involved in an extramarital affair.
Mr. Petraeus issued a statement acknowledging the affair after President Obama accepted his resignation and it was announced by the C.I.A. The disclosure ended a triumphant re-election week for the president with an unfolding scandal. »

Comment: Haw again.

Petraeus follows a similar path set by McChrystal:

McChrystal out; Petraeus picked for Afghanistan

  «WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama sacked his loose-lipped Afghanistan commander Wednesday, a seismic shift for the military order in wartime, and chose the familiar, admired - and tightly disciplined - Gen. David Petraeus to replace him. Petraeus, architect of the Iraq war turnaround, was once again to take hands-on leadership of a troubled war effort.»

Comment 1: Note "tightly disciplined."

Comment 2; Q: Which is worse, can't keep a mouth shut or a fly zipped?

Here's another McChrystal quote:

Gen. McChrystal: We've Shot 'An Amazing Number Of People' Who Were Not Threats
Justin Elliott | April 2, 2010, 3:09PM
  «In a stark assessment of shootings of locals by US troops at checkpoints in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal said in little-noticed comments last month that during his time as commander there, "We've shot an amazing number of people and killed a number and, to my knowledge, none has proven to have been a real threat to the force."» 

Comment 1: Petraeus' former 'boss' keeps a 'kill list' which designates who they will drone to death next. Drones are estimated to have a 'kill-ratio' of ~2% (supposed = alleged, i.e. not brought to trial, let alone convicted of anything) militants vs. 98% innocent 'collateral' victims killed.

Comment 2: These are some of the people running our world.

Comment 3: The wars they are running; Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, currently Syria with Iran next - are Nuremberg-class illegal resource-wars = mass-murdering for spoil. Gallows.


  1. What is not explained, anywhere that I have so far looked, is how this could happen at all; how the FBI could bug the CIA in the 1st place, but worse; having done so, how anyone could allow the shit to hit the fan - in such a disastrous way. Imagine taking such a story to your boss... It means that it was escalated, all the way to 'the top' - then they went ahead; the FBI pissing all over the CIA. Ve-e-ery fishy, if you ask me. Q: What's being hidden?

  2. What is truly amazing is that for 37 years long, he has been toeing the empire-line, is personally responsible for perhaps thousands of innocents killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, but now goes into disgrace for sleeping with a woman not his wife?

  3. 24hrs later and some articles appear; from/via antiwar:

    1. Petraeus Mistress Had Access to His Private Email (Glaser)

    2. Scandal Reported With Veneration of All Things Military (Greenwald)

    3. Behind Petraeus's Resignation (Parry)

    4. Pundit Tears for Petraeus’s Fall (McGovern)


    5. Biographer's E-Mails to Woman Led F.B.I. to Petraeus (Shane & Schmitt)

    I've read 'em; you could too - to gather some fresh info, make up your own mind?

    Not so BTW, one could consider the collaterals; the 'lady' herself, the spouses and kids. That a military killer falls into disgrace and is sacked due to an extramarital affair is - IMHO - utterly ludicrous, given the number of people killed = possibly over 1.4mio Iraqis and 4,801 US soldiers in Iraq, 'coalition' forces dead in Afghanistan: 3,223 [figures from ICH], over 1000 US troops just in Petraeus’ Iraq surge.
