What a bunch of press conference lies and misdirection:
Talking about Susan Rice’s Benghazi lies today, Obama really said don’t criticize my officials, come after me. Evidently we have no right to vet or otherwise comment on his agents. More here..
When questioned about Petraeus’s sins and what he had known, Obama said there was no breech of security that “I have seen”. Was he avoiding saying what he might have been told? When then asked directly was he “told”, he refused to answer the question.
He’s playing games, folks! He didn’t see anything in writing, but he was told orally!
A Petraeus Kraut-spiracy Theory-- "On Tuesday night’s 'Special Report' on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer suggested that federal government officials may have leveraged former CIA Director David Petraeus’ extramarital affair to influence what he told Congress about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya. 'I think the really shocking news today was that Gen. Petraeus thought and hoped he could keep his job [after the affair was discovered by federal investigators],' Krauthammer said. ... '[H]ere’s a man who knows the administration holds his fate in his hands and he gives testimony completely at variance with what the secretary of defense had said the day before, at variance with what he heard from the station chief in Tripoli, and with everything that we had heard. Was he influenced by the fact he knew his fate was held by people in the administration at that time?'"
The United States has now acquired an electorally powerful liberal bourgeoisie who are convinced, as their European counterparts have been for several generations, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, that public spending is inherently virtuous, that poverty can be cured by penalising wealth creation, and that government intervention can engineer social "fairness." But just when some of Europe's political class has begun to appreciate the dangers of this philosophy—that taken to its logical conclusion, it leads to economic stagnation and social division—America seems to have decided that it is the quintessence of enlightened sophistication.
‘Of Arms and the Man’: One of Shakespeare’s characters asks Othello how he will be remembered. “I have done the state a service,” he says, but concedes that he had “loved not wisely but too well.” David Petraeus has also done the state noble service, and like Othello loved unwisely, but his story is not over yet.

HEE Haw! The Need for Prophets More Than Prognosticators > Balaam's donkey did better. “In fact, when Christians stake their hope primarily on political outcomes we are perilously close to embracing a tenet of Humanist Manifesto II – "no deity will save us; we must save ourselves. .. Without the presence and courage of the prophetic community, there is no one to tell society when it is on a trail headed for a cliff, and no one to guide it back to truth and safety.”
