In the shadowy world of Moose and Squirrel

Gen David Petraeus (Ret) has tendered his resignation as Dir CIA immediately after the election? Why does that seem strange, that the once favored nominee of the right to run against Obama has been having affair and must resign. Why is this a fatal flaw? Did Boris and Natasha set him up? This was a guy that never seemed to live up to the hype about him. Something funny going on here, an affair shouldn't be enough to knock out this guy. We'll probably never know what has been really has been going on.

The more that I think about this, the more ludicrous the 'official' reason for his resignation is. Infidelity is not a crime, hasn't been for decades, it isn't even grounds for divorce. If he was still in the Army, maybe. He did something more, what? Did it involve Romney? Benghazi? Sold us out to alien invaders? Sigh....

You have to wonder if Petraeus made some backroom deal with the Romney campaign a la Janes Forrestal when he supported Dewey's election bid versus his boss, Harry Truman. Maybe something to do with Benghazi and the efforts of the Right to create the appearance of a scandal? One can only speculate.

Scandal?

I've been hearing the idea that Petraeus resigned so he wouldn't have to testify before Congress. The idea is this would protect the Obama administration from having its misdeeds about the the Benghazi events exposed.

Unless I've missed something, Congress can call David Petaeus or anyone else to testify regardless of where the witness may or may not work. The resignation would be irrelevant I would think.

when does reality ever stop the right from manufacturing a scandal?
