    I was waiting for that... it was so utterly predictable.

    I asked YOU... what does "compromised" mean? What does it mean? Tell me... what does it mean? Congressman King stated this was a crisis.. this was serious business... and it is. When the CIA director is vulnerable like this... it's serious. As he said, it's not like the State Dept.

    You and I know what it "compromised" means... and what did you do? You downplayed it... (paraphrasing) "as if someone would blackmail someone in polite society today."

    You are naive. You know what the Russian mafia is like? They make the Italian mafia look like beauty queens. The Russian government is no softer than the Russian mafia. It is a different mentality. The Communist Chinese would have zero reservations to extract whatever the could... and what is easier than a crippled target? Even if it doesn't work, it is worth the try.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Re: CIA director Petraeus resigns over affair

    Lets make this simple. At what point was Patreaus compromised and when did the government know of it?

    As soon as they connected the dots to know when he was vulnerable to personal blackmail, he should have been releived of command. Political expectations dont enter into it when national safety is a consideration in the discussion.

    As soon as possible he should have been relieved, not when politically convenient.
    You can be behind that simple idea or you can be wrong---your choice.

    Did someone fart? Oh! it was coitus interruptus inserting himself without nary a morsel to add to the debate except foul air.

    Adam... Parasite Nation won the election... you can rejoice... no need to count Benghazi threads... you are free to engage in debate.
    What that means is you can provide some value with your deep insight while offering divergent opinion. I welcome it. I cannot speak for others, but I am sure a few might welcome some insight from your brilliant analytical mind and stellar political instincts.

    Before we were so rudely interrupted... I've posted it again...

    You cannot actually believe he could have been subject to blackmail???

    Once the FBI figured it out, and presented the E-mails to Patraeus,the secret was out, and there was no further potential for blackmail.

    How far did he get with the second woman? Are there others?


    "A former associate of Petraeus confirmed the target of the emails was Kelley, but said there was no affair between the two, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the retired general's private life. The associate said Kelley and her husband were longtime friends of Petraeus and his wife."

    Which are just more reasons he should be relieved of command, you dont wait for the other shoe to drop, you get rid of the problem.

    Which isnt hard to understand or to do, unless youre trying to win an election.....
