    source Newsmax..... Still, the White House, with concurrence by the FBI and Justice Department, held off on asking for Petraeus’ resignation until after the election. His resignation occurred three days after the election, avoiding the possibility that Obama’s ill-fated appointment of Petraeus could become an issue in the election.

    FBI agents on the case were aware that such a decision had been made to hold off on forcing him out until after the election and were outraged.

    “The decision was made to delay the resignation apparently to avoid potential embarrassment to the president before the election,” an FBI source says. “To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.”

    Michael Kortan, the FBI’s assistant director for public affairs, said he had no comment.

    You should contact Jesse Ventura. You would make a good investigator for his TV show, "Conspiracy Theory". I happen to like Jesse though. He makes a lot of sense in what he believes and what he speaks of.

    Do you not believe he had an affair and resigned? Do you not read at all? I wonder why Obama didn't feel this could not come out before the election same as drone attack it happened back on the first. He told us bin laden was dead an hour after it happened.

    Petraeus resigns and Hillary Clinton will be unavailable next week when she was supposed to testify you can run but you can't hide.

    Oviously I do read, or I would not be responding to posts. I read your posts, and the majority of them, have some type of "Govt Conspiracy" or "Govt cover up". Did Oswald act alone or was there someone on the grassy knoll? LOL

    That's all this admin does is cover up. We knew in an hour bin laden was dead because that was a feather in obamas cap. it's been since 9/11 and we still don't have answers on Benghazi. Now the Gen. resigns after the election ,and Hillary is so busy she can't make it to testify next week. Iran fires on our drone and it takes nine days for that to come out, also after the election. You know what they say if it walks like a duck...... The good news is there are people that won't close the books on Benghazi no matter how long Obama tries to stall.

    I am just in shock to be quite honest, Petraeus was/is a genuine American hero

    EXCLUSIVE: Petraeus mistress may have revealed classified information at Denver speech on real reason for Libya attack
    By Jennifer Griffin, Adam Housley

    Published November 12, 2012
    FoxNews.com




    CIA director resigns days before hearing on Libya...

    Petraeus asserts that resignation is unrelated to...
    Biographer Paula Broadwell could be facing questions about whether she revealed classified information about the Libya attack that she was privy to due to her relationship with then-CIA Director David Petraeus.

    At an Oct. 26 speech at her alma mater, the University of Denver, on the same day that Fox News reported that the rescue team at the CIA annex had been denied help, Broadwell was asked about Petraeus’ handling of the Benghazi situation.

    Her response was reported originally by Israel’s Arutz Sheva and Foreign Policy’s Blake Hounshell.

    Broadwell quoted the Fox News report when she said: “The facts that came out today were that the ground forces there at the CIA annex, which is different from the consulate, were requesting reinforcements."

    Broadwell went on to explain more sensitive details from the Benghazi attacks, particularly concerning what the real cause might have been.

    “Now, I don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually, um, had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that's still being vetted.”



    In the original Oct. 26 Fox News report, sources at the annex said that the CIA’s Global Response Staff had handed over three Libyan militia members to the Libyan authorities who came to rescue the 30 Americans in the early hours of Sept. 12.

    A well-placed Washington source confirms to Fox News that there were Libyan militiamen being held at the CIA annex in Benghazi and that their presence was being looked at as a possible motive for the staged attack on the consulate and annex that night.

    According to multiple intelligence sources who have served in Benghazi, there were more than just Libyan militia members who were held and interrogated by CIA contractors at the CIA annex in the days prior to the attack. Other prisoners from additional countries in Africa and the Middle East were brought to this location.

    The Libya annex was the largest CIA station in North Africa, and two weeks prior to the attack, the CIA was preparing to shut it down. Most prisoners, according to British and American intelligence sources, had been moved two weeks earlier.

    The CIA, though, categorically denied these allegations, saying: “The CIA has not had detention authority since January 2009, when Executive Order 13491 was issued. Any suggestion that the agency is still in the detention business is uninformed and baseless.”

    Broadwell’s affair with Petraeus was likely known to Holly Petraeus, according to family friends. The FBI reportedly knew about it months beforehand and White House Counterterrorism adviser John Brennan reportedly was aware that there was a relationship as early as the summer of 2011.

    Broadwell, whose affair with Petraeus reportedly ended earlier this year, continued to serve as an informal spokesman for the CIA director. She suggests in her Denver speech that Petraeus knew almost immediately that the attack was a terror attack -- possibly to free militia members.

    A few days later, Petraeus testified in a closed session to Congress that the attack was due in large part to an anti-Islam video and a spontaneous uprising, according to reports from the hearing.

    Congressional leaders say privately they believe they were lied to by Petraeus when he testified shortly after the attack. Some of these members already considered charging Petraeus with perjury, but said they planned to withhold judgment until he testified this week. After resigning as CIA director, the CIA said Acting Director Mike Morrell would testify in his place.

    All of this raises the question: What was the CIA really doing in Benghazi in addition to searching for Qaddafi’s stash of more than 22,000 shoulder-held missiles that could bring down commercial airplanes, and who in the White House knew exactly what the CIA was up to?

    Talk about the most unfortunate choice ever for a book title for the Petraeus biography.

    All In

    And the subtitle hardly improves the situation:

    The Education of General David Petraeus.
