Doug Weed: Petraeus vs. Clinton

Why Petraeus and not Clinton?
November 13, 2012

Okay, since nobody wants to talk about the elephant in the room, I will be the dope and get all the criticism and mention it. (This is the best part of being over sixty years of age.) If the national news media, with a straight face, can tell us that the CIA director, General Petraeus, had to resign because he was having an extramarital affair, why didn’t they say the same about President Bill Clinton when he was having an extramarital affair?

Was it….

A.) Because the television executives personally liked Bill Clinton and didn’t want to hurt his feelings and be embarrassed at cocktail parties?

B.) Because they liked his political policies and were afraid they would be setback?

C.) Because they knew about Bill Clinton’s proclivities and were prepared to finesse them if they surfaced but were caught off guard by General Petraeus and so had to report it straight?

D.) Because the president is the boss and what he does in his spare time is his own business?

As far as that goes, if the media is serious about this Petraeus story then why isn’t Bill Clinton being cut out of the daily intelligence briefings even now? As a former president he still gets them. As NBC News explained to us on Sunday, such knowledge could have made Petraeus vulnerable, subject to blackmail, and so he had to go.

Well, you say, is there evidence that Bill Clinton is still being indiscreet? Well, let’s see. Everybody who is now reading this blog who personally knows of someone who claims to have had a one night stand with Bill Clinton please raise you hands. Ahaaa. There you go. You can put your hands down now.

With Petraeus out, he doesn't have to

be required to testify before congress about the Benghazi fiasco. I'd say that was the motive here.

I think it goes deeper than that.

I'm guessing that he will be forced to testify, and will become a side show, while his replacement will get on with the dirty work in the Middle East. Aside from the murder this administration is guilty of in Benghazi, something else stinks strongly of CIA corruption.

What I was getting at is this was cooked up

in order for him NOT to testify, hence not throwing mud on the administration.

short answer

yes, or at least very probably so. Notice everyone involved in the scandal is also wrapped around Libya and Benghazi. This is not just Petraus, but several others as well. Reminds me of stories about Stalin cleaning out the Russian army in the 30's actually.
