Sad to think an indiscreet BJ by ML for BC resulted in two unfunded wars and tens of thousands of needless deaths.

Monica might have been able to suck the chrome off a bumper, but there is no way those 30 seconds were worth what it ultimately cost this nation.


That's a lot of supposition.

And ignores the fact that Clinton went with "deny at all costs" instead of manning up and admitting that he did it. (looks into camera) "I want you to listen to me..."

That makes no sense whatsoever, unless you think that Monica gate somehow impacted Al Gore's inability to campaign very well.

I thought 2000 was the fault of Ralph Nader/Supreme Court/Florida Secretary of State. This is the first time I have heard it blamed on Monica.

Well this is all hypothetical, but it is interesting (to me if no one else).

Having said that...

Clinton was the sitting President, working with a budget surplus, and 23 million jobs created over his two terms in office.

Al Gore didn't use Bill Clinton to stump for him in 2000 because of the sexual scandal.

Just look at the enthusiasm Bill Clinton generated at the DNC this year and in Ohio following Sandy.

Are you telling me he couldn't have generated a few hundred votes in Florida for Al?

Regardless of the sexual scandal, not using Bill Clinton might have been Al Gore's biggest mistake.

The reason Al Gore lost was because Clinton got blown in the Oval Office, simple as that. Bush ran and won on "moral values".

So Petraeus is going to testify after all, just like nobody said he wouldnt.

I've got a feeling he is actually going to send an imposter in his place though. No proof, just a feeling. Might be an alien too

There's no way he was going to get out of it, so he might as well do it on his own rather than be subpoenaed.

and now we find out that Broadwell had classified documents in her home ... wow ... just wow. But really ... this is just a sex scandal. Nothing to see here. Move along. These are not the droids you're looking for.

he mistress of General Petraeus - one Paula Broadwell, was no ordinary fling, and is said to be pivotal in his resignation.

As a result, the CIA head won't be testifying in the upcoming Congressional hearings on Obama's cock-up in Benghazi. The FBI raided Broadwell's residence immediately following the disclosure.

Paula Broadwell, maiden name 'Krantz', is a top-line US intelligence operative, and has links to arms dealer Jan Henrik Jebsen, who set up her position at Tufts University where she ran the Jebsen Center for Counter-Terrorism Studies at Tufts Fletcher School. Jebsen also has ties to arch-neocons Scooter Libby, Douglas Feith, andMichael Ledeen through his board position with the pro-Israeli Hudson Institute. The Hudson is directly tied to Likud in Israel, and works to cultivate the idea of radical Islam as the chief threat to the west. Paula Broadwell is in the middle of this matrix, and she herself has also worked extensively in Israel and Jordan, as one could image.

Broadwell's father Paul Krantz seems to know something, telling the New York Daily News, 'it's about more than the affair'.

Paula Broadwell may well have been a kind of elite "honey trap". It's a complex web, and the American media would do itself a favour by looking into it properly.

Enter the spoiler...

One can't ignore the obvious overtones of possible foreign operatives (hmm...) working within the Washington circle, and we should also look into Mrs Jill Kelley, her maiden name is 'Khawam' and is apparently the daughter of a Lebanese immigrant. It's Jill Kelley who kicked off withmistress Paula Broadwell sent her harassing emails telling her to 'back off' Petraeus.

Kelley complaint made to FBI who then handed it House Leader Eric Cantor®, and an investigation was launched. Cantor had promised Netanyahu that the GOP House would act as a 'check' on the White House's apparent de-prioritising of Israel. What amazing is how they managed to sit on this until after the election - it would have crashed Obama's run, so somehow it didn't.

Why is Mrs Kelley is an 'unpaid social liaison' to U.S. CENTCOM working out of the military headquarters based at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, a base which overseas oversees operations in the Middle East, including Iraq and Afghanistan? 'Unpaid' is often a status used for spies working as informants. If that's the case, then Jill Kelley's cover is blown. The White House will want to bury this one as deep as possible.

Then there's the problem of Broadwell out on the speaking circuit claiming the US CIA safe house in Benghazi run by Christopher Stevens was being used as a 'secret prison'. There are also allegations that Stevens was organising the gun-running of ex-Gaddafi stockpiles into Syria for the American and British-backed FSA terrorists.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to testify at a closed-door session of Congress to answer questions about September's terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, but he will likely also be asked about new revelations that his alleged mistress Paula Broadwell is suspected of storing classified military material, at her home.


Petraeus had been reluctant to testify following his resignation as CIA chief, but pressure had been growing in Congress for him to appear.


"Gen. Petreaus is willing to come before the committee and the details are being worked out," Sen. Diane Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said today. No date for his testimony has been set.


A source familiar with the case also told ABC News that Broadwell admitted to the FBI she took documents from secure government buildings. The government demanded that they all be given back, and when federal agents descended on her North Carolina home on Monday night it was a pre-arranged meeting.


Prosecutors are now determining whether to charge Broadwell with a crime, and this morning the FBI and military are pouring over the material. The 40-year-old author, who wrote the biography on Gen. Petraeus "All In," is cooperating and the case, which is complicated by the fact that as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Military Reserve she had security clearance to review the documents.




The FBI found classified material on a computer voluntarily handed over by Broadwell earlier in the investigation. Prosecutors will now have to determine how important the classified material is before making a final decision. Authorities could decide to seek disciplinary action against her rather than pursue charges.
Senior FBI officials are expected to brief the House and Senate Intelligence Committees today on their handling of the Petraeus investigation. The officials are expected to lay out how the case was developed and argue that there were no politics involved.
The case is so critical that FBI Director Robert Mueller may attend to defend the bureau, ABC News has learned. Members of Congress have been angry that they were not informed about the case before the story was reported by the media, but FBI officials maintain that their guidelines forbid them from discussing ongoing criminal cases.
This summer, Florida socialite and "honorary ambassador" to the military Jill Kelley received anonymous emails accusing her of flaunting a friendly relationship with military brass in Tampa. Kelley then called the FBI, which traced those emails back to Broadwell's computer. Investigators are said to have then found emails in Broadwell's inbox that pointed to an intimate affair with Petraeus, who on Friday admitted to the affair and announced his resignation as CIA director.
See the timeline of the Petraeus/Broadwell affair HERE.
The FBI has now uncovered "potentially inappropriate" emails between Gen. John Allen, the commander of American forces in Afghanistan, and Kelley, according to a senior U.S. defense official who is traveling with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. The department is reviewing between 20,000 and 30,000 documents connected to this matter, the official said. The email exchanges between Kelley and Allen took place from 2010 to 2012.

The poo continues to roll down hill. This spy bitch gets found with classified documents on her computer, then there's "inappropriate emails" from another woman and yet another 4 Star General.

Did I mention that the rear admiral of the Stennis Carrier Strike Group has resigned as well?

Ohh, but it's just your everyday vanilla affair, right folks?
