The moral of the David Petraeus saga is still “keep it in your pants” but nothing in this story surprises in the least

David Petraeus was betrayed by his own bodyguards and vengeful high-ranking enemies in the CIA, who made sure his affair with his biographer was exposed to the public, a new book claims.

MailOnline can reveal a new angle on the story that rocked Washington last fall. It comes from two retired special operations commandos – a Navy SEAL and a Green Beret – who say they discovered a plot against the former CIA director while doing research about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Senior CIA officers targeted Petraeus because they didn’t like the way he was running the agency – focusing more on paramilitary operations than intelligence analysis. They used their political clout and their connections to force an FBI investigation of his affair with Paul Broadwell and make it public, according to ‘Benghazi: The Definitive Report.’

‘It was high-level career officers on the CIA who got the ball rolling on the investigation. It was basically a palace coupe to get Petraeus out of there,’ Jack Murphy, one of the authors, told MailOnline.

    A dense, multi-layered story. I despise the horny general. He was “all of a sudden” able to control his impulses, waiting until after the election, allowing us to be screwed again. God bless the warriors Murphy and Webb, seeking justice for their friends, comrades, our country, going forward even though at this point, what difference does it make? (And F that bitz, too).

    The swamp needs to be drained.

    The foreign press is all over this story. I’ve got to learn about Clinton and Lewinsky from Drudge. The National Enquirer broke the John Edwards scandal. I still have yet to hear a national news reporter mention the L.A. cop/murderer’s love of MSNBC, Pierce Morgan and the POTUS.

    Our media stinks on ice.

      And then the world knows that the man who would be president had chosen a slut sucking Senator to be a heart beat away from the presidency, and the man who is president who would be king has chosen same to be our SoS, and with eyes wide open, our leaders, our co-equal branch, has winked and nodded and complicitly confirmed the beast with the beastly widow wife to represent us to the world.

      What difference at this point, does it make?
