Ya know, I’m not a big conspiracy guy, but there’s some really weird stuff going on. Tman sends us a link to Associated Press that says that somehow General John Allen, Petraeus’ replacement in Afghanistan, is involved in this whole Petraeus/Broadwell scandal;
In a new twist to the Gen. David Petraeus sex scandal, the Pentagon said Tuesday that the top American commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, is under investigation for alleged “inappropriate communications” with a woman who is said to have received threatening emails from Paula Broadwell, the woman with whom Petraeus had an extramarital affair.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said in a written statement issued to reporters aboard his aircraft, en route from Honolulu to Perth, Australia, that the FBI referred the matter to the Pentagon on Sunday.
Panetta said that he ordered a Pentagon investigation of Allen on Monday.
And while that’s going on, The Blaze, in a link sent to us by Stu, reports that the FBI was searching Broadwell’s house last night;
A spokeswoman for the FBI has confirmed agents went to Broadwell’s home in Charlotte on Monday night. However, FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch declined to say what the agents were doing there.
FBI agents appeared at Broadwell’s home carrying the kinds of cardboard boxes often used for evidence gathering during a search.
Obviously, the government is more concerned with investigating this illicit affair than they are interested in investigating the four deaths at the Benghazi consulate. Already, in four days, we know more about this affair than we know what happened in Benghazi over two months ago. And if it’s not related to Benghazi, at the very least, it was manufactured to distract us from the Benghazi investigation.
Given the number of senior military officers who have fallen to scandal in the last several months, I think we need to clean house at the Pentagon. Or maybe flag officers needs a sensitivity class on how to conduct themselves, or at the very least a nice little semi-annual power point presentation on things NOT to do while in their offices.
