Linda Anselmi spotted some fascinating news about Benghazi. Just a bit ago, “Was Jill Kelley an Agent of Access for Foreign Intelligence,” so I have tucked this underneath, and hope you spot it.
Larry Johnson has covered Benghazi in depth. and I trust that you will find time to read through his superb posts on that entire nightmare. (His latest is immediately below this post: “What is the White House Covering Up in Benghazi?.” More are listed to your right, and even more may be found here. Below, I have written some remarks about Petraeus and his wife, his poor, sad, lonely wife.) From Israel National News:
“The challenge has been the fog of war, and the greater challenge is that it’s politicalhunting season, and so this whole thing has been turned into a very political sort of arena, if you will,” she said. “The fact that came out today is that the ground forces there at the CIA annex, which is different from the consulate, were requesting reinforcements.
“They were requesting the – it’s called the C-in-C’s In Extremis Force – a group of Delta Force operators, our very, most talented guys we have in the military. They could have come and reinforced the consulate and the CIA annex. Now, I don’t know if a lot of you have heard this but the CIA annex had actually taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get these prisoners back. It’s still being vetted.
“The challenging thing for Gen. Petraeus is that in his new position, he’s not allowed to communicate with the press. So he’s known all of this – they had correspondence with the CIA station chief in Libya, within 24 hours they kind of knew what was happening.”
David Petraeus. Talk about “just desserts.” Actually, justice should be a des
sert, say a desert island or Diego Garcia.
Yes, Diego Garcia, where he can have his last dessert. While his wife, I hope, lives in a lap of luxury, as they always say. And takes good care of herself.
Talk about “sweet revenge.”
I have some people I’d like to punish with some “sweet revenge” myself someday soon. I’ll tell you a bit about them in an upcoming post. I could write an entire book — no, a series of books, about all the people in the long trail that comprises my entire life — about the people who’ve stepped all over me. I’d be flat as a piece of cardboard, but somehow I am still here, hanging on by — well — I am a very, very determined woman. And I hope Petraeus’s wife is too. Here’s what I wrote about Mr. and Mrs. Petraeus (and I hope she takes her maiden name back, so she’s not saddled with that name the rest of her life).
I wrote this around 4:30 a.m.:
Frankly, I don’t care that he “banged” his biographer. Many men AND women have affairs.
But. When Fox News showed a photo of his wife off to the corner in a group snapshot, my heart sank.
She looked so downtrodden, like a long-forgotten book in the back of a library.
I hope she gets a fresh start and lots of money.
P.S. (While I am thinking of her, please check out Linda’s book reviews and her other thoughtful, well-written posts. Reverend Amy’s blog too. What a thoughtful, kind person she is. And so is Pat Racimora. They have come through for me through thick and thin. Larry too.)
