Petraeus knew it was al Qeada immediately and informed the White House

Here is what we are hearing from Petraeus…

Former CIA Director David Petraeus testified in a closed-door hearing Friday morning that his agency determined immediately after the Sept. 11 Libya attack that “Al Qaeda involvement” was suspected — but the line was taken out in the final version circulated to administration officials, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., who spoke to reporters after Petraeus testified before the House Intelligence Committee, indicated he and other lawmakers still have plenty of questions about the aftermath of the attack.
“No one knows yet exactly who came up with the final version of the talking points,” he said.

In other words, Obama’s claim that the intelligence community informed the Administration that it was a protest was a lie. No fog of war. No misstatement. No mistake. They scrubbed al Qaeda from the talking points and lied over and over about the nature of the attack including during the debates.

So why did Petraeus play along? Because Obama had Damocles Sword hanging over his head. Paetraeus doubtlessly believed that if he cooperated with the Administration’s cover up, he would weather the storm over his infidelity. Whether there were explicit threats made or Petraeus simply deduced that he should play nice is immaterial. He knew Obama had his balls in a vice and very likely behaved accordingly.

    The left will now blame the debacle in Bengahzi on Petraeus. The meme to watch for is that he was so distracted by the fallout from his infidelity that he was unable to due his duty when the attack on the consulate occurred.

    This is Grade A jackassery, but it won’t matter. I bet it is the meme to be born over the weekend.

    Whatever the case, Petraeus played along. When Susan Rice was on television telling fairy tales, he played along.

    In fairness, it isn’t up to the CIA Director to undermine the President. Still, I can’t help but feel that he was compromised by his infidelity and – whether actively or passively – was blackmailed. It may have been all in his head, but the reason why it was there was because of is stupidity.

    I would not be surprised to learn, however, that it wasn’t all just in his head.

    Advice to Revoistas: Don’t get too interested in all of this. Whatever happens, the media will cover for Obama and nothing whatsoever will come of it.

    But of course, R.D. The fawning press will do whatever it takes to keep their dear rock star leader protected. All that POS has to do is keep throwing entitlements (mainly EBT cards) to the fainting goats, oops, I mean crowds from his parade float. The more they worship, the better for them. The press will cover it as wonderful to get more low lifes to believe.
