General David Petraeus and Biographer/Military Expert, Paula Broadwell
Military expert Paula Broadwell, who was allegedly improperly involved with resigned CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, confirmed in October that the CIA annex in Benghazi asked for reinforcements when the consulate came under attack on September 11. She also acknowledged that ‘there was a failure in the system.’
Broadwell was speaking at her alma mater, the University of Denver, on October 26. Her lecture, which is on YouTube under the title ‘Alumni Symposium 2012 Paula Broadwell,’ now has added value, because based on the recent disclosures, it can now be assumed that she indeed knew exactly what it was that Petraeus knew about the attack.
Broadwell confirmed the reports on Fox News that the CIA annex asked for a special unit, the Commander in Chief’s In Extremis Force, to come and assist it. She also said that the force could indeed have reinforced the consulate, and that Petraeus knew all of this, but was not allowed to talk to the press because of his position in the CIA.
‘The challenge has been the fog of war, and the greater challenge is that it’s political hunting season, and so this whole thing has been turned into a very political sort of arena, if you will,’ she said. ‘The fact that came out today is that the ground forces there at the CIA annex, which is different from the consulate, were requesting reinforcements.
‘They were requesting the – it’s called the C-in-C’s In Extremis Force – a group of Delta Force operators, our very, most talented guys we have in the military. They could have come and reinforced the consulate and the CIA annex. Now, I don’t know if a lot of you have heard this but the CIA annex had actually taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get these prisoners back. It’s still being vetted….’
General Petraeus was aware of the calls for reinforcements from the annex within 24 hours, which means that Obama knew. The more we learn, the worse the stench.
…the CIA annex had actually taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get these prisoners back. It’s still being vetted….
Hypocrite, liar and dictator, Barack Hussein Obama, is running secret CIA prisons and not just in Libya. (I wonder if he is water boarding.)
Obviously, General Petraeus did not intentionally fall upon his sword for having an affair or for disgracing his position or the country. He was forced to side with the White House in the Benghazi, Libya cover up and now we know why.
Was the general being blackmailed by Obama or members of his administration to remain silent on the Benghazi assaults that left four Americans dead, one of which was a U. S. Ambassador?
Was the general being blackmailed by Obama or members of his administration to remain silent on the Benghazi assaults to cover up the cover up and to protect the liar in the White House?
Was Petraeus forced to keep his dalliance with Broadwell under wraps just long enough for Obama to be re-elected and once re-elected did the narcissist in the Oval Office hand Petraeus a big f-u?
Considering that 50% of Washington D.C. is cheating on their spouses, I ask, had it not been for the Benghazi attacks and the cover up by the Obama administration, would the affair between Broadwell and General Petraeus have become public knowledge?
Americans have the right to know the answers to all of the above and many more.
The cover up, the lies must be revealed. Subpoena Clinton, Petraeus, Broadwell and anyone else who plans to cut and run in order to avoid having to testify.
The Petraeus/Broadwell scandal must not be permitted to become a distraction by the Obama administration and his media puppets.
