The Obama Administration is set to come under intense congressional scrutiny this week over the resignation of General David Petraeus, amid mounting criticism of the delay in alerting senior government figures to the former CIA director’s affair with his biographer.
It is now becoming clear that while President Obama was kept in ignorance until November 8, two days after he had been re-elected, the hierarchy at the FBI and the Justice Department had been aware of the extra-marital affair and the potential for national security concerns since the summer. There is also speculation that Mr Obama’s own Attorney-General, Eric Holder, may have known of the affair for months.
Last week there was a growing scandal about what happened at the embassy/consulate in Benghazi. About how those there on the ground were screaming for back up and none came. About who and how no back up was sent. And who was responsible therefore for those deaths.
This week everyone is shouting about whether a 60 year old man dipped his wick where perhaps he shouldn’t have.
And no one at all is talking about the Benghazi problem that he was part of and which he was to have been questioned about in Congress this week.
Gosh, isn’t that just amazing.
No, it’s not time for me to get fitted with a tin foil hat. I’m only noting that it’s just amazing, isn’t it?
