CIA Analyst on Petraeus Departure: “TIMING IS TOO PERFECT… IT REALLY SMELLS” (Video)

Retired Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters accused the Obama Administration of holding on to the news of Petraeus’ affair until they needed it – right before he was to go before a Senate committee and get grilled on Benghazi.

The timing is too perfect for the Obama administration. Just as the administration claimed it was purely coincidence that the Benghazi consulate was attacked on 9-11. Now it’s purely coincidence that this affair surfaces right after the election but before the intelligence chiefs go to capital hill to get grilled…. It really smells.

Ralph Peters smells a Chicago rat.

Or maybe it was just coincidence.

    I can smell something fishy 2,400 miles from D.C.
    Not buying the “affair” story.

  • Sasja

    Would seem to me that resigning need not keep him from being called to testify since it was during his tenure this atrocity took place.

  • AmericaWILL

    Dang right it smells. Like a freakin’ sewer! This is also why Petraeus was so quiet for the past month. The O was holding this over his head like sharp blade. How much lower can this admin possibly go?????

  • robm

    Petreus is the latest victim of the PURGE, following Benghazi……Gen Carter Han, AFRICOM..
    Gen Joseph Dunford, MARINES…Adm Charles Gaouette, USS Stennis………….more to follow until
    Chairman “O” gets his YES men in place…..

    Ask his wife if it’s true.

  • Old Glazier

    I”m thinking this might be your leaker to Fox? Payback.

  • Art Ewing

    This is only the beginning folks, when you have an administration that is loaded with criminals from the top down you can expect anything. hang onto your wallets because the S.O.B in the WH is going to tax us to death.

  • rolling thunder

    Convenient!!! That’s an understatement!!! Everything the gang from Chicago pulls is convenient! This country is going to resemble Venezuela in another year!

  • coolidgerules

    The purge and the hammer are going to both happen before 2014- If this keeps up, damn near every dem in both houses is going to get shellacked. Barky can’t do this with both houses in opposition. But he NEEDS one to blame all his problems on. The Party of Stupid still holds the House.

  • Linda

    We don’t know if (or how) Petraeus might of been threatened if he did not cooperate with these creeps concerning Benghazi’s investigation!

    I would not blame him at all…it is another great loss to America!

  • samspade

    My guess it is true, and, this corrupt administration was holding it over his head. Blackmail, if you will. This really makes you rethink Robert’s “last moment” switch on his obamacare vote.

    Americans better wake up and wake up fast.

    ISAF Commander and U.S. Army General David Petraeus looks on during a ceremony in Rome
    FULL-BLOWN COVER-UP: WILL NOW NOT TESTIFY AT HEARING – Petraeus Resigns As CIA Chief On Eve Of Benghazi Hearing, Cites Extra-Marital Affair – READ FULL RESIGNATION LETTER HERE


    SECOND AND MAJOR UPDATE: NEIL CAVUTO HAS JUST REPORTED (4:15 PM EST) THAT PETRAEUS WILL NOW NOT BE TESTIFYING AT NEXT WEEK’S BENGHAZI HEARING….SHADY AND DEVELOPING…CBS BACKS CAVUTO REPORT, PER NATIONAL REVIEW: CBS’ Mark Knoller tweets that “Senate Intelligence Committee says Petraeus will not testify at next week’s closed hearing on the events in Benghazi.”

    Perhaps there is some protocol I’m unaware of, but I don’t see why resigning should affect whether Petraeus testifies or not. He was in charge of the CIA when the Benghazi attack occurred, and the CIA has been under plenty of fire for how the attack was handled.

  • Michele

    Or…Petraeus could have been told that if he squealed on Benghazi, his affair would be leaked to the media. He may have called their bluff, admitted the affair ahead of them, and resigned, leaving them to wonder if he’ll still squeal on Benghazi. Well, it’s a theory anyway.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Nothing is likely to happen. Why?

    Because the “opposition” is only that in name.

  • Patty

    Americans are going to find out the hard way, if they don’t know already, Obama and his administration has not just deceived us. THEY HAVE PE TRAYED US.

  • Ghost

    Stalin called, he says he’s impressed

  • Blain

    I wondered if Petraeus was the source for Jenmifer Griffin’s story. She interviewed him in Afghanistan and they seemed to have a cordial relationship.

    But some of Griffin’s story was kind of later walked back by the CIA, I thought.

  • dwd

    If Congress can haul Mark McGwire and Roger Clemens in for a hearing, they can bring in Petraeus as well, even if he is no longer head of the CIA.

    The man still has the knowledge and information. Just because he has resigned doesn’t mean he can’t be put through the wringer to squeeze that information out. Same for Holder, same for Hillary.
