Petraeus story unbelievable
Thursday, November 15, 2012
Does anyone really believe the Gen. David Petraeus “fairy tale”? Why, my 5-year-old grandson can do better than that.
The general — excuse me — the most decorated military officer of our time, was having an affair while America was under attack in Benghazi.
So the important issue is now whether Petraeus might have given away any military secrets during the dalliance. But first let us all commend the general for “manning up” to the affair.
He certainly has set a bright shining example for all members of our military. I sure hope my grandkids will all grow up to be outstanding war heroes like former CIA director Petraeus as well as our equally sincere, honest and forthright president who promises to seek out the perpetrators and bring them all to justice.
Don’t you just get a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that people like President (Barack) Obama, (Secretary of State) Hillary Clinton and Gen. Petraeus are guarding all of us all the time.
