Petraeus Investigation – Overnight Media Report Expands Narrative and Protects Obama….. Just In Time To Head Off The Sunday Talks….

Guess who the news outlet is with this REPORT, published just in time to head off the Sunday talks… Wait for it,….. yep,…..

CAN THEY BE ANY MORE TRANSPARENT – Seriously?

Inside the *cough* REPORT:

The Obama administration first learned of the affair in a phone call from the FBI to Director of National Security James Clapper at 5 p.m. on election night, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official.

HatTip LMG - (CNN) Official: Woman complained of harassing e-mails from Petraeus’ biographer – The affair that brought an end to David Petraeus’ tenure as CIA director came to light during an FBI investigation into a complaint that his biographer Paula Broadwell was sending harassing e-mails to another woman close to him, a U.S. official said Saturday.

During the investigation, other communications surfaced between Petraeus and Broadwell, a married mother of two, according to the official.

The official did not identify the woman who made the initial complaint and did not know the nature of her relationship with Petraeus.

The FBI interviewed Petraeus in the course of its inquiry, said the official, who stressed that the CIA director was never the target of the investigation and his communications were never compromised. The official did not know whether Broadwell was interviewed.

The official did not have an exact timeframe for the investigation and could not say if it is still ongoing.

CNN has not been able to reach Broadwell for comment.

The Obama administration first learned of the affair in a phone call from the FBI to Director of National Security James Clapper at 5 p.m. on election night, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official.

On Saturday, questions arose about why congressional leaders were not informed of the investigation immediately.

According to a congressional aide familiar with the matter, the House and Senate intelligence committees weren’t informed that there was an FBI investigation into Petraeus until Friday. (continue Reading)

Talk about propaganda selling.   So the FBI is investigating the Director of the CIA and no-one tells the White House?   That’s what they want you to believe….. and just to ensure they can actually sell that nonsense the concentric circle of protection puts Clapper, yes, THAT James Clapper, as the all purpose and convenient plug in the flow of information……

D’oh

……. Lemme guess…. Clapper was told by the FBI – in full expectation he would inform the White House,…. and because Clapper was so concerned about the long-term legacy of the Brave American Hero General David Petraeus he chose not to tell the oval office…. so that’s the story now?    ((((headpoundingondesk))))

Damn these weasels are slick….

(here’s some Clapper infamy)

    Riiiight, Obama didn’t know. CNN = Commie New Network.

    Now, if Obama didn’t know then how in the world did Cantor know?!

    “FBI whistle-blower contacted Eric Cantor on David Petraeus affair”

    A bit off topic but similar. A close friend in Austin was looking for $70 milion in start up capital. Those in TX wanted to see who won. They explicitly said “Do not accept any Chicago money”

  4. lovemygirl says:

    Obama said “By any measure, he was one of the outstanding general officers of his generation”.
    Really? His generation?
    What the Hell have you or your generation accomplished?

    This is the method of operation I’ve noticed. The story gets out. Mainstream Media is silent in all but the most cursory details. The New Media get to work with digging, bringing up more questions. The administration gathers together all of the New Media reporting, details, questions, and so forth, and then spends a day or two or three putting together a plausible story to cover for the prez. The Mainstream Media then reports what the administration tells them, and thus drives the narrative. FOX News and online conservative media follows (for the most part) the Mainstream Media narrative they were fed by the administration. The truth gets buried.

    The Mainstream Media must be defeated. They are the enemy that prevents the truth from getting a fair hearing in the public. They are the ones who obscure the truth. They are the ones who protect the administration. They are the Revolutionary Guards and they need to go down.

    Remember this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6xWGvdRQ9Q

    When they lie and manipulate, they need to be called on it. Every. Single. Time. They need to be exposed, over and over and over. Hundreds of times. Never give up, never give in. If they lie, expose it. No matter how small. Their reputation, which is already in tatters, needs to be completely destroyed. They should be constantly mocked, constantly exposed, constantly afraid that the next thing out of their mouths will be examined, researched and opposed. Websites should spring up that concentrate solely on each reporter on each network, that follows and exposes the lies each and every time. This has to be a united effort.

    They became the guard dogs of the left and our now marxist government. They shill for Chicago Jesus and his apostles. If you want to change the government, you have to get past the guard dogs first.

    There should be a New Media summit of some sort to brainstorm ideas, plan, and execute.

    I miss Breitbart more aan me each day.

  8. Funny how this Administration doesn’t seem to know about anything. They didn’t know about, Fast & Furious, didn’t know that their own Ambassador was begging for more security, didn’t know that the FBI was investigating Petraeus and on that one,weren’t told anything even when the FBI found something in October.
    But they all knew about Sheriff Joe Arpaio, they knew about “illegals” rights being violated, they knew about fighting “voter ID laws”. And they knew they got “bin laden”.

    This whole thing is pretty sleezy. Think about it, Petreaus resigns following the election and days before Benghazi. Within hours, the New York Times, CNN, and Washington Post are smearing Broadwell and Petreaus with stories of 1,000’s of emails, Broadwell emailing some other woman, Broadwell attempting to access Petreaus’ email (…but, no serious crimes are being investigated), and more piling on by Martha Raddatz and others using their ‘confidential sources’ from the FBI, etc.

    Seriously??? The FBI investigating the head of CIA would be a VERY, VERY private investigation. The usual suspects for government leaks – NY Times, WashPost, CNN have more ‘confidential sources’ giving them dirt in the last 24 hours than they have had in the last four years!

    Me thinks Petreaus was threatened, would not buy the company line, and now is being smeared as hard as they can smear him. To put that he was resigning for an affair in his resignation announcement rather than “for personal reasons” says it all. He was being blackmailed by our own government to lie about Benghazi and he would not fall on his own sword.

    Popcorn popping. I do believe Petreaus will be subpoena’d and I do believe he will sing like a canary.

      “I do believe Petreaus will be subpoena’d and I do believe he will sing like a canary.”

      From your mouth to God’s ears. Pray for the general’s safety and long life.

    The guy replacing General David Petraeus is Col. Mike Murrell. He’s big with the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). Our government is looking to pair CAP with Homeland Security…

    The House Appropriations Committee mandated the GAO report. GAO’s mission was to evaluate:
    • CAP’s current legal authority, capabilities, missions and resources and the extent to which these factors affect the organization’s capacity to take on additional homeland security-related responsibilities.
    • The extent to which CAP and the Department of Homeland Security currently coordinate their missions and activities.
    • The potential costs, benefits and feasibility of using CAP for border security and search and rescue operations.
