    Pretty good opinion piece by Judge Napolitano ... another "fairy tale" that the affair would not have come to light when FBI did its background check on Petraeus when he was proposed as CIA chief, and that POTUS would have not been made aware of same through his weekly FBI briefings. Other interesting legal facts in there as well.

    I don't care what they do or don't do to him at this point. I want the truth about Benghazi to come out and those responsible held accountable for it. If he is one of them... He needs to pay.

    One story floating around was that since he was retired, they could drop a star and reduce his pension. He claims the affair started after he retired although they met in 2006. Interesting side note Jill Kelly had dinner sept 28 at the white house. Paula broadwells father said this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Former CIA Director David Petraeus stoked the controversy over the Obama administration's handling of the Libya terror attack, testifying Friday that references to "Al Qaeda involvement" were stripped from his agency's original talking points -- while other intelligence officials were unable to say who changed the memo, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed.

    That does not explain why Petraeus testified otherwise on Sept. 14.

    Possibly security reasons. If it appears to be a cover up, someone will leak it out.

    One of my former bosses never closed the door when we were having meetings. His philosphy was that if people see the door open, we were planning something. If the door was closed, we were plotting something. It's all about the trust factor.

    "The Rescue of Roger Locher" ... told by retired brigadier general Steve Richie.

    If Richie (or General Vogt) had been in command on 9/11/2012, this story might have had a different ending.
