News (NBC post-election) (FOX) (CNBC pre-election) and more, about General Petraeus’ affair and resignation is coming out now. Why now? The perfect timing of this story is sounding very strange and does not add up. It is strange that the story brewing in the media right now is about Petraeus and not Benghazzi. What does an affair have to do with getting information about Benghazzi to the Obama Administration?! Most affairs, especially those involving non-political figures, stay underground. This is an ordinary affair. There’s no Security breach. Gen. Petraeus has been in more trouble than this so why is this affair such a big deal in the media today? He has a reputation as a great leader, and a bright man. Whether he had an affair is one story, but there’s a bigger story at stake–Benghazi cover up. Reasons for this fishy story’s existence raises more questions.
Is this affair just a tactic to distract the real news about the Benghazi cover up? Are the Democrats attempting to cover up their cover up, in order to protect President Obama’s chances of re-election? If the 2012 Presidential election had happened some other time, would this story about Petraeus’ affair even become a story?
Is this news just a distraction from the real news? Is it a Democratic ploy used to excuse and explain why the news about Benghazi did not reach President Obama until after Nov. 8, 2012 (2 days after the national Presidential election)?
Is Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) play-up of this story distracting from the Benghazi coverup? If so, is General Petraeus being used as a fall guy for Obama’s re-election?
Things are getting very fishy. The “balloon” is getting bigger. When it really blows up, could this blow up and become, what some might call, Benghazi-gate?
