" his whole celebrated life was in the hands of the administration, and he expected they would protect him by keeping it quiet."


On the other hand, let's say Obama did protect him, kept it quiet and allowed Petraeus to keep his job.

Wouldn't THAT, now, be the major scandal? That Obama chose to protect someone who committed an offense that might well be eligible for a court martial?

Do you think Eric Cantor would have also continued to sit on this to protect Petraeus?


Obama may well have to answer for Benghazi and it could very well be a huge black eye on his legacy but nothing, so far, in this Petraeus scandal suggests this will be tied to any kind of Benghazi cover-up involving the White House.
