    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: CIA Director Resigns

    All this issue shows is that Obama is very good at coming up with things that create a lot of questions...and not good at coming up with answers.

    I've sure Obama knows that the truth will come out someday. Perhaps he thinks it won't matter if he can avoid the questions till he's out of office.

    Lance Armstrong probably thought the same thing.

    haven't read all the posts but apparently this has been the subject of an investigation for months and raises questions of why this pimple didn't pop until right after the election

    Because he was supposed to testify Monday on Benghazi and now he won't be since he is no longer the director and someone else who knows nothing first hand will be testifying instead. Pure coincidence I am sure.....

    It appears that the resignation was due to something more serious than the affair itself.

    Hillary's schedule is also full for that day and Barrack will be out of the country and, of course, will not be taking questions..

    Seems there might be some subpoenas issued soon.

    I read the news report. Thousands of emails to the woman Petrais had an affair with after she broke it off with him; when did he have time to work? It sounds like Bobby Petrino all over again. That must have been some goooooooooooood stuff.

    However, his resignation right after the election smells, well, fishy.

    You have clearly never worked around officials at that level. They are human too.
