  •  Gates, Petraeus, Mullen, Pickering (8+ / 0-)

    Darrell Issa over the weekend said he thought Petraeus was carrying water for the Obama admin. Petraeus, who was touted as a GOP candidate for president and had resigned in scandal before he testified on Benghazi.

    If there was anyone who would NOT be carrying water for Obama, it's Petraeus during his hearings.

    Mullen, Pickering, and Gates all defend the administration's actions/reject claims of a coverup. While Gates and Mullen served in the Obama admin, they were both appointed by a Republican president. Both Gates and Pickering served mostly during GOP admins. None of them hold a position in government currently and they all seem to be retired from public service, so when you factor that in, what reason would they have to be dishonest about their assessment?

      because Obama deviously sent Paula Broadwell to seduce him into having an embarrassing affair that would make him Obama's b---ch, which thankfully didn't go to the lengthes that Michael Corleone did to win over Senator Geary in Godfather II. But if Petraeus messes up, for his sake I hope he isn't into hookers (and for the hooker's sake, of course).
