Closed door testimony is not the government elected officials,  voted in by the public citizens In the City,  State or, Country they reside in,  so WHY private testimony for David Petraeus?

Why Did Cantor Protect Obama?

Why Did Cantor Protect Obama? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Why Did Cantor Protect Obama, David Petraeus sex scandal, FBI whistleblower, Paula Broadwell, Obama...

 

The only reporter to confront Cantor about his strange handling of the explosive allegations is WTVR CBS 6 Richmond, Virginia, reporter Joe St. George. Cantor told him, “I had some information that I felt was information that raised some concerns and potentially could have some impact for our nation’s security.” St. George asked Cantor about the decision to not release the information publicly prior to the election. “I don’t want to comment, I don’t think it’s something we want to politicize—I think this is a national security concern,” Cantor said.

 

These are fine sentiments. However, according to a November 10 article by Scott Shane and Eric Schmitt of The New York Times, Cantor’s chief of staff, Steve Stombres, called the FBI on October 31 to tell them about the call Cantor had received from the FBI whistleblower. “They took the information,” Doug Heye, Cantor’s deputy chief of staff, was quoted as saying, “and gave the standard answer: they were not able to confirm or deny any investigation, but said that all necessary steps were being taken to make sure no confidential information was at risk.”

 

LBN:

I think Cantor was afraid of politicizing the issue...as that is what the media would have turned it into, just as they did with Romney when he tried to press Obama on his failure to secure the mission in Benghazi. However, politics is a dirty game and if he would have come public and let the media and other members of Congress know prior to the election...we may have had a different outcome. But, I doubt it since the media controls the message and spins it the way they want to focus and mislead the public. They would have focused more on the sex scandal rather than the actual Benghazi incident as they have been doing since Patraeus resigned last Friday.

Interesting Theory by Liberal Blog The Daily Kos Investigates Jill Kelley’s Lebanese Background, Spy Motivations

Interesting Theory by Liberal Blog The Daily Kos Investigates Jill Kelley’s Lebanese Background, Spy Motivations | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Ever since it was revealed that Jill Kelley, the woman arguably at the center of the currently-unfolding drama rocking the U.S.

 

Orcas George at the extremely left-leaning Daily Kos has begun building the case that Kelley’s actions are suspicious at best, and that if she was not in the employ of a foreign intelligence service, “the world’s spy agencies have collectively suffered a dereliction of duty.”

 

Mind you, The Daily Kos is the same site that called Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s investigation into Huma Abedin a “witch hunt,” despite tangible connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

The article explains:

It probably goes without saying that both General Petraus of the CIA and General Allen would be top targets for foreign intelligence operations — especially by countries in the Middle East. Knowing details of US actions there would be of benefit to many countries; some allies, some nominal allies and some considered to be enemies.


The fact that socialite Jill Kelley’s maiden name is Khawam and that she was born in Lebanon to Maronite Christian parents should raise eyebrows a bit. (Note that the Maronite Christians were allies of Israel in the Lebanese Civil War/Lebanon invasion.) The fact that she and her husband were willing to go into debt to throw lavish parties for high level officers who are involved in the Middle East should make even the most resolute anti-CTers among us pause. The further fact that she is identified as an unofficial liaison between top American Generals and unspecified Middle Eastern contacts, well…[Emphasis added]


Using supplementary details from a Washington Post article, the Daily Kos then proceeds to detail Kelley’s access, motivations, connections, opportunity, and ability.

 

Read part of their case, below (the Washington Post details are in the highlighted boxes):

 

See article for details...

 

My theory:

The Benghazigate Saga Continues From Murder to....Sex, Lies, Spies and Government http://sco.lt/8BjHOr

 

LBN Excerpt:

So Jill Kelley knew the FBI agent, as a personal friend, he became obsessed with her and sent her a shirtless photo of him while he was investigating Paula Broadwell for her after receiving harassing emails and then uncovered the affair between Patraeus and Broadwell. The affair was discovered back in June and Holder was aware of it but never told Obama nor the Senate Intelligence Committee and now it comes out in the public a week before Patraeus was supposed to testify and in result he resigns even though no crime was found...hmmm....

 

Patraeus went to Benghazi himself to investigate the attack...and may have discovered the secret CIA prison and know something about the secret prison holding prisoners in Libya and maybe knows more about the weapons transfer to terrorists from Libya to Syria under Obama. Maybe the WH was afraid he'd testify about his findings so they brought out the affair to use as blackmail against him and instead of telling them he'd remain silent he resigned. However, why then does Patraeus not want to testify any longer?? Was he or his family threatened if he does?? Or is he also complicit and covering up what happened in Benghazi because he was part of it and knew about the secret prison and transfer of weapons to our enemies all along?? This would make him complicit in the deaths of Ambassador Stevens, and the other three Americans. This could explain why Patraeus also went along with the WH admin story that the attack in Benghazi was started by an unknown anti-Islam film/video when evidence within an hour of the attack proved otherwise.

 

So the KOS theory that Jill Kelley is some sort of spy or was seeking to blackmail US Generals for money or otherwise sounds plausible and explains why someone who doesn't work for the military, nor DOD, would have connections with top military brass. It also explains why a housewife, married to a surgeon would want to throw fancy parties even at the risk of going into debt and foreclosure of their home. However, it doesn't really explain why General Allen would waste his time with her and why General Patraeus would consider her a family friend other than the time spent at parties together and them becoming family friends. 

 

Keep in mind the father of Paula Broadwell says there is much more to this than meets the eye....In this article from the NY Daily News: 

Broadwell’s father said Sunday his daughter is the victim of character assassination and implied the bombshell story is just a smoke screen for something bigger.

“This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out,” Broadwell’s dad, Paul Krantz, told the Daily News outside his home in Bismarck, N.D.

“There is a lot more that is going to come out,” said Krantz, claiming he was not allowed to elaborate. “You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.”

He said he supports his daughter “100%.”

makes you wonder what he knows and she knows that we don't yet know and if or when we will ever know. Hopefully they know something about the Benghazi incident and it all comes out in the hearings. Perhaps the Senate Intelligence Committee should subpoena  these women and the father of Paula Broadwell as well to see what they know, since they had access to Patraeus, the top CIA Director.

The FBI probe into the sex scandal that prompted CIA Director David Petraeus to resign has expanded to ensnare Gen. John R. Allen, the commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, the Pentagon announced early Tuesday.

 

According to a senior U.S. defense official, the FBI has uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents — most of them e-mails — that contain “potentially inappropriate” communication between Allen and Jill Kelley, the 37-year-old Tampa woman whose report of harassment by a person who turned out to be Petraeus’s mistress ultimately led to Petraeus’s downfall.

 

Allen, a Marine, succeeded Petraeus as the top allied commander in Afghanistan in July 2011. He also served as Petraeus’s deputy when both generals led the military’s Tampa-based Central Command from 2008 until 2010.

French CEOs: So, we’re kinda’ drowning over here… Obama to Join Them With Higher Taxes&Spending

French CEOs: So, we’re kinda’ drowning over here… Obama to Join Them With Higher Taxes&Spending | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Oct. 28, a group of 98 CEOs published an open letter to Hollande that said public-sector spending, which at 56 percent of gross domestic product is the highest in Europe, “is no longer supportable.” The letter was signed by the CEOs of virtually every major French company. …[while the US GDP is topping 100%, exceeding France spending]

 

The problems they’re complaining about aren’t new. Heavy taxes and social charges required to support high government spending have eroded corporate profitability. In the l’Express interview, de Castries says that on average, the government charges incurred by his company for each employee are more than double the employee’s take-home pay. French labor costs are the second-highest in Europe, after Belgium, as companies are burdened with rigid and devilishly complicated work rules. No surprise, then, that operating margins at French companies have shrunk almost 40 percent over the past decade…
The French economy has been stuck at zero percent growth for months, while unemployment has climbed to above 10 percent — and all signs point to an oncoming recession.

 

It’s a universal truth (though unfortunately not one that’s universally acknowledged) that expanding taxes and an expanding welfare state do not a robust, innovative, and job-creating economy make.

 

LBN:

Obama and the useful fools who re-elected him will soon find out, and sadly the rest of us will suffer the consequences.

 

US GDP spending is around 40% right now according to [while France is at 56% of GDP] http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/spending_chart_1900_2012USp_13s1li011mcn_F1t ;

 

If we continue on Obama's path of spending and taxing, we will likely follow the same path as France, if not Spain and Greece or worse end up a 3rd world country like Cuba or Venezuela.

*The Benghazigate Saga Continues From Murder to....Sex, Lies, Spies and Government*

 

So Jill Kelley knew the FBI agent, as a personal friend, he became obsessed with her and sent her a shirtless photo of him while he was investigating Paula Broadwell for her after receiving harassing emails and then uncovered the affair between Patraeus and Broadwell. The affair was discovered back in June and Holder was aware of it but never told Obama nor the Senate Intelligence Committee and now it comes out in the public a week before Patraeus was supposed to testify and in result he resigns even though no crime was found...hmmm....

 

Patraeus went to Benghazi himself to investigate the attack...and may have discovered the secret CIA prison and know something about the secret prison holding prisoners in Libya and maybe knows more about the weapons transfer to terrorists from Libya to Syria under Obama. Maybe the WH was afraid he'd testify about his findings so they brought out the affair to use as blackmail against him and instead of telling them he'd remain silent he resigned. However, why then does Patraeus not want to testify any longer?? Was he or his family threatened if he does?? Or is he also complicit and covering up what happened in Benghazi because he was part of it and knew about the secret prison and transfer of weapons to our enemies all along?? This would make him complicit in the deaths of Ambassador Stevens, and the other three Americans. This could explain why Patraeus also went along with the WH admin story that the attack in Benghazi was started by an unknown anti-Islam film/video when evidence within an hour of the attack proved otherwise.

 

Catherine Herridge thinks there is more involved and Jennifer Griffin of Fox News says there may be a foreign entity involved, which would explain the transfer of weapons to foreign terrorists! The FBI investigation was supposedly over and no crimes were found as far as cyber crime or otherwise, but the FBI still searched Paula Broadwell's home last night and the incident came out in the open to the media once Patraeus issued his resignation.

 

Then last night it also came out that Gen Allen, the US Commander in Afghanistan, will be replaced because he exchanged emails with Jill Kelley, the friend of Patraeus that was harassed by Paula Broadwell and initiated the FBI investigation. Gen Allen insists their relationship was purely platonic and the emails were flirtatious in nature but not sexual and no affair took place between him and Jill Kelley. However, the other strange twist is why did he and General Patraeus write letters of support for her twin sister in a custody battle to have her 4yr old son returned to her?? The twin sister of Jill Kelley was found unfit as a parent and lost custody to her estranged husband....but why would these two Generals involve themselves in her private custody battle?? It sure seems like a tangled web of love triangles, deceit and lies.

 

What is more upsetting is that we know more details about the affair and those involved than we know or will likely ever know about what happened in Benghazi. Hopefully, Patraeus' wife will get after him to speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so that the families of those killed will finally have some closure and those involved in the failed security cover-up will finally be brought to justice and exposed. However, it may be so deep that it may take down not only Patraeus but Obama, Hillary, Holder and others in the military who covered-up what happened, which is why it has been covered up before the election.

 

The father of Paula Broadwell says this goes much further than we know....it is likely he might know something that his daughter knows about the entire Benghazi incident, since she had an affair with Patraeus and was privy to know, such as the leak about the secret prison in Benghazi holding militants.

 

In the end I hope the truth eventually comes out so the families can have closure and justice is served and so that the American people can learn the truth and those responsible for the cover-up and dereliction of duty, failure to secure the mission/consulate in Benghazi are appropriately charged. I also hope should Obama, Hillary, Holder, Dempsey, Panetta and Patraeus or anyone else involved is charged appropriately, imprisoned and removed from office immediately so that we the people can finally replace the most incompetent, scandalous and corrupt administration in history! Sadly, nobody will probably end up charged and we will be stuck with them, but even worse if Obama is replaced we are stuck with Biden as POTUS! ARRRGGHHH!!

God save America!!
