This was discovered in a CIA investigation that has gone on for some time and was not specifically looking for this particular case.
    And he could have been blackmailed.

    There is no conspiracy.
    I asked another poster if English is his second language...

    The opportunity for blackmail exists... especially if he remained in power and it lingered on.

    The opportunity for blackmail exists with pretty much every one. It does not make it particularly likely. With the rest of the facts involved, the chance that the issue here is blackmail is vanishingly small. All those details are in this very thread. Is English your second language?

    Blackmailed for having an extramarital affair? Would any power in the world seriously approach the General and say that unless he betray states secrets they will tell the world he was having an affair? Haven't we moved on since those days? The Russians and Chinese, and of course the Europeans, certainly have.

    Nice to know that it's a problem somewhere .... I don't recall it being much of anything for the President of the US

    Alot of people of a particular political pursuation seem to think the WH is at fault for it all. Really?

    1. Why did the story surface if what the op said is true?
    2 Who made it come up
    3. Why is there not more focus on the members of Congress who knew as well (I am sure these include some Reps)

    If the op is correct, then do you seriously beleive that Obama is going to explode a grenade on himself. If so you are in serious need of professional help. So who?

    the next question is was this a politically motivated act or vendeta or sour grapes? Why

    Next why are the majority of people ignoring the Congressional involvement, that is those members of Congress (national security committee) who were told (According to a current CIA op on CNN) at the same time the White House was.

    Last question. Do you really think anyone is going to piss of the FBI by blowing an ongoing investigation? Right. Try it sometime and see what happens.
    Oh but there is more ...... these two people have suddenly found themselves in trouble .. for something ..


    In an unusual move, the Navy has replaced an admiral commanding an aircraft carrier strike group while it is deployed to the
    Middle East. The replacement was prompted by an Inspector General’s investigation of allegations of inappropriate leadership
    judgment.

    Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette, the commander of the USS John C. Stennis strike group, is being returned to the United States
    for temporary reassignment...

    General Ham head of Africom .... is another that is being relieved of duty,

    both since the embassy killings .....

    Conspiracy crap. Since no one knows someone on the outside has to make up reasons to keep the fringe groups worked up.

    I will wait for facts (if ever) and leave the conspiracy stuff to the fringe. Oswald did not work alone. Yeah right.

    And that will make it more difficult to impeach Obama. How convenient.
