"To Tell The Truth"

To tell the truth, I wonder if recently resigned CIA  Director David Petraeus will be called to testify before Congress as to his role in the Benghazi situation where 4 Americans including our Libyan Ambassador were murdered. Former Director Petraeus resigned after disclosing that he had an extra marital affair with alleged mistress Patricia Broadwell who wrote a biography about Petraeus in the book "All In". Apparently we now know that Petraeus was all into Broadwell.

Was Petraeus "blackmailed" by the Obama administration to report that the Benghazi tragedy was the result of a lame anti-Islam movie  trailer with the threat of exposing the Broadwell affair which was found out apparently some time last Summer? I don't know. You would think that the CIA chief would know how  to cover up his undercover womanizing from detection. As chief spymaster Petraeus should know how to protect  "A Saucerful Of Secrets" to name an old Pink Floyd album.

The Obama administration appears to be a unique blend of the Nixon and Carter administration. The incompetence of Carter mixed with the above the law deviousness of Nixon. President Obama has often relied in his political career on "Digging In the Dirt" to name a Peter Gabriel song to destroy his political opponent's character by prying into the personal lives of his opponents.

I have never personally been "blackmailed" as far as I know, but I would think that if the information that a blackmailer is brought to light especially by the person being blackmailed then this information no longer has any power over the person being blackmailed. The question regarding Petraeus is whether being threatened  with possible prosecution under Article 134 of the Military Code of Conduct if he testifies before Congress due to his affair is worse than going before Congress and lying about what really happen with the Benghazi situation and possibly although protecting the Obama regime opening himself to perjury charges. By self disclosing his affair, Petraeus I hope will sing the sweet song of truth before Congress so that the American populace can find out what really happened in Libya on 911 and whether the Obama administration engaged in impeachable and /or treasonous actions. We shall soon see. Sometimes reality is as interesting as a fiction spy novel. We shall see if the former "puppet master (David Petraeus) will spill some of his saucerful of secrets by telling the truth as to what he knows about the 911 story or whether to save his own skin he will lie about what happened and be a puppet of the Obama regime. I hope he has the courage,decency, and character "To Tell The Truth", (a former television show).
