    He'll go. It's his duty, regardless of any legal implications. You know how this works for those who've spent a lifetime in uniform. He can't forget that, even if he tried.

    Nothing to see here - this is just another example of "prosecutorial discretion" as exercised by this President.

    I believe the thinking was that if it's not discoverable, we can make it whatever we want it to be. So a terrorist attack could be the reaction to a video, or even a reaction to bad food the US sent as aid. Who knows? Well, now we're beginning to get the idea that maybe no one wanted to be held accountable for anything that might have happened because once you set that little stone in motion, who knows what might happen? This is State's policy of crash and burn and let's get 'er done on the fly smart power gone awry, and nobody, but nobody wants to take credit for it when it goes wrong. I can tell you from experience you will never convince these people that they are wrong. They believe, truly, that they are smarter, and they'll go to their graves believing that in face of all evidence to the contrary. It's all optics and style and the media message over substance because that's what brought them to power. Huge, truly monumentally huge egos are in play here.

    Well with Hillary she was trying to be slick.....thinking if she kept everything personal that she wouldn't have to disclose unless it was by her discretion.

    So you're just asking questions, not actually trying to make a case that prosecuting Petraeus is a "strike" at the GOP?
    Sometimes, questions are meant as statements. These sorts of questions are called rhetorical questions.
    It seemed possible that you were using your questions to make statements.
    I am now corrected.
    You don't really know if the prosecution of Petraeus is an attempt to hurt the GOP.
    You were just asking the DP for our collective wisdom.
    Good.
    That means that you do not have to support the premise that the prosecution of Petraeus is a political move against the GOP.

Often times it's the last person in an organization you'd think it to be. That 'Good Conservative' isn't always such a good man or woman. Again that's why I don't advocate fully investing in any one spectrum of thought and ideology. It isn't a good bet.
    Let's put it this way, if every HR Department was opened to the public half of all employed people would be unemployed the next day. The world is a lot more wild than you think.
    If we were to accept your say-so about the condition of the world, your advice would be that we should ignore such activity?
    I may be wrong.

    Well to be honest I did hear some conservatives talking and they thought it was a slight to the GOP. That was on Salem Broadcasting.....when Dennis Miller was on. Which is why I wanted to ask people here and what they thought.

    Decorated war veteran and former CIA director David Petraeus has entered into an agreement with federal prosecutors in which he would plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge for mishandling classified information. Specifically, the charge is unauthorized removal and retention of classified material. The charge stems, in part, from documents the former director allegedly provided to his mistress.

    Contacted by ABC News, Petraeus’ attorney, David Kendall said he had “no comment” on the guilty plea.....snip~

    Patraeus is a criminal, and all you see is Obama administration revenge. Figures.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    No I am denying the other part of that statement you made up and didnt have a clue about. Which was the Dennis Miller Show talking about the subject of could this be more than just Petraeus giving Classified Info to his Mistress who had a security clearance.
