- Hmm, Hillary and Patraeus both resign the same week? Sounds like rats leaving a sinking ship to me.Nov 9, 2012
- I agree about the country in the crapper Michael Meisman. Every one is talking about how honorable Obama(Barry) is. And the general cheats and resigns. Hillary's leaving and others too. And the good Obama is still here running or ruining our country. What a joke!Nov 9, 2012

WOW what a line of shit.
obama and Clinton mentioned in the same sentence as honorable. ROFLMAO. Now that is good stuff. I have a friend that is a professional comedian, I am going to send him that line.
The actions of those 2 both scream DIShonor. Honorable people DO NOT lie about cheating on their wives in any form (they just plane don't do it). Honorable men DO NOT lie to the entire country about the murder of a diplomat and 3 others. Honorable men DO NOT try to make it permissible to take from those that work and give it to those that choose not to. There are literally hundreds of other reasons that these men are NOT honorable men.
I will say that Clinton is not near as far down the DIShonor list as obama.Nov 10, 2012
- People as so stupid that they try and excuse this as, oh this happens all the time with these guys lets just honor his military service. Uhh uhh. When you take some of these three letter agency jobs and don't come clean about something like this. which is what happened here that is much worse than doing drugs in hs or college and not telling the details I can tell you that for sure. That is some serious treasonable lie telling omission from the git go at any number of these places. If you are in the company and that happens you are supposed to let them know about it first too unlike the private sector. Not the same as other regular gov jobs either. What, he did not get any interview or questions that everybody else has to pass? Probably did not have to get polygraphed either which is still standard but hey, General Betrayus has been checked out. Worst of all from their perspective is another agency, ANY other agency-FBI KGB, nationality does not matter- found out and had enough about it, to be problematic. I'm not sure how it is in the Army but they must have some kind of honor code that he violated big time at his level by not coming clean on this too before he joined the CIA. Much much worse than McCrystal who was really great in straight up heroic insubordination via Rolling Stone about what he really thought of guys like Joe Biden coming to visit. Of course McCrystal thought he was an idiot and said that and more before they fired him. Much better to be fired than to go out with a scandal like this that is fer shure. Oh, of course the oh so honest General disclosed the notorious adultery during his interviews and clearance procedures to become head of the CIA: Sexual behavior is classified as notorious when it is sufficiently well known and noteworthy that it becomes the subject of talk among coworkers and/or social contacts. Notorious sexual behavior is a security concern because it may attract attention of an opposition security or intelligence service, terrorist group, or criminal element. It increases the risk that an individual will be targeted for recruitment or unwitting exploitation, and that increases the chances that any other vulnerabilities that exist will be discovered and exploited. The risk is greater for individuals whose job brings them into contact with foreign nationals who may be tasked to report on them to a foreign intelligence or security service.
In some cases, notorious sexual behavior may be a personnel issue as well as a security concern. The notoriety may reflect adversely on the U.S. Government or make it more difficult for an employee to accomplish his or her assigned tasks. For example, sexual harassment in the workplace and adultery with a consenting subordinate fall into this category.Nov 10, 2012
