The Jill Kelley nonsense is turning into six degrees of Kevin Bacon. By the time the Chicago Machine is done with General Petraeus – the media will be broadcasting pictures of him playing naked Twister with Rosie O’Donnell covered in strawberry pancake syrup at Donald Trump’s birthday party…..
WASHINGTON (AFP) — A Florida socialite at the heart of a scandal that brought down the CIA chief was once asked by him to stop a radio talk show host who was threatening to “deep fat fry” the Koran, US media reported early on Saturday.
That account, which comes from emails sent by socialite Jill Kelley, offers a new glimpse at her relationship with Petraeus and other senior military officials.
In March, a Florida radio talk show host named Todd Alan Clem but known as Bubba the Love Sponge said he was going to “deep fat fry” a copy of the Koran as a stunt, the reports said.
Gen. John Allen, commander of US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, and CIA director David Petraeus, both asked Kelley, who lives in Tampa, to try to intervene and stop the radio host by contacting the city’s mayor, Bob Buckhorn.
(*snip* Buckhorn is a Democrat, from Illinois, 1980 Alumni of Penn State / Sandusky. In 1991, he was selected to Chair the MacDill Reuse Advisory Committee and over the ensuing four years helped lead the effort to save MacDill Air Force Base from closure.)
“I have Petraeus and Allen both emailing me about getting this dealt with,” Kelley wrote to the mayor, according to NBC News.
The generals saw the “Bubba” announcement as a potential threat to the safety of US troops stationed in Islamic countries.
Defacing the Koran is forbidden in Islam and in the past plans to burn the Muslim holy book by a controversial Christian pastor in Florida sparked deadly protests across the Muslim world.
Petraeus, a retired four-star general and America’s most celebrated military leader in a generation, resigned from the top CIA job last week after an FBI probe exposed his months-long extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. (more)
2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
