    I guess this is the leadership we can expect.
    Months ago?

    When was Petraeus appointed head of the CIA?

    When did Ms Broadwell threaten the other woman?

    Im just amazed that Patreaus is even still around, I mean according to liberals a few years back .. Wasnt he just another lying Bush mouth piece . And that was being said
    .. Before he ever testified before congress As I recall the leftist nut jobs hated the man Move on dot org a liberal rag really pushed this with full support of most liberals as I recall .

    You rush to defend when I made no allegations only shows the hack that you are.

    Maybe the rules are different for field personnel in the military. I can see that part
    No offense, but you're off the mark. There was an initial lock down in the 90s when computers and the internet first became widely used in the military, but since then the rules on "personal use" have relaxed. You're operating on outdated info.

    Who are they? I was talking about me. And if you took the time which apparently you did not to look at some of my positions and opinions you would see that I go all over the place on the spectrum depending on the issue.

    This exercise has been enlightening, for it reminds us once again how lax the Left's views are when it comes to National Security.

    Now... Redress... Translate the following for me. Explain what exactly does "compromised" mean?

    [B]He was going around the world negotiating various understandings and agreements[/B... And to have someone out there in such a sensitive position who the FBI thought perhaps could have been compromised or was under the scope of an FBI investigation who may or may not have been having an affair at the time, that to me had to have been brought to the president or certainly to the National Security Council. If not, the FBI was derelict in its duty.”

    This is a crisis... of major proportions,” King added. “This is not the usual political thing. We’re not talking about the secretary of commerce or some undersecretary somewhere.

    Did you read what you quoted? To quote you: "is English your second language?" Words have meaning, and "compromised" does not mean "blackmailed", especially in the context. Here, let me help: compromise - Wiktionary

    Verb

    compromise (third-person singular simple present compromises, present participle compromising, simple past and past participle compromised)

    1. (intransitive) To bind by mutual agreement.
    2. (intransitive) To find a way between extremes.
    3. (transitive) To cause impairment of.
    4. (transitive) To breach a security system.

    Alas poor General. Another in a long line of great men to be brought down by a younger lady.


    To be fair she is an expert on "military affairs".....

    Vaya Con Dios.
    Thank you
