    You may have a point. Until Broadwell made her Oct. 26 speech about Libyan prisoners, everything was well under wraps. It seems likely that particular subject would have come up in the hearings, as well as Petraeus' claim (under oath) on Sept. 14 that the video was at fault for the attack.

    Messsier and messier, and now the MSM news organizations are all over it.

    Gen. John Allen also helped Jill Kelley's sister during custody battle

    WASHINGTON -- Both Gen. David Petraeus and Gen. John Allen intervened in the same nasty child custody battle involving Natalie Khawam, the “psychologically unstable” twin sister of Jill Kelley, whose bombshell claims of being threatened by Petraeus' lover led to the top spy’s resignation last week, the Post has learned.
    Is there no limit to the amount of BS that will get stirred up to keep attention diverted from the investigation of what happened at Benghazi?

    Many, many questions arising from this, and this is going to lead back to the WH, which won't be good for the country....Everyone be sure and look at what is being done in DC while this is capturing everyones attention.

    Has it been confirmed that Patreaus told her that and she didn't make it up?

    I'm more interested in whether or not it is true. If so, we can ask how this came to be as well as your question.

    I think some of this is going to lead back to the FBI too.

    No doubt. The entire administration is corrupt if you ask me. On multiple levels we have stories starting with Benghazi where the President claims not to have been in the loop about sensitive incidents where it is inconceivable that this would be the case. I can not imagine a scenario where the President wouldn't be notified when it is suspected, found out, or known that the D-CIA was in a compromising position, and being investigated. Also that he says he wasn't is IMHO, a lie plain and simple.

    But, add it to the list. This President lies to the American public as easily as the average person takes a drink of water.
