Senator Dianne Feinstein was not briefed about the situation with General Petraeus even though that is the standard protocol.
So much for transparency.
The White House said that they didn’t know about Petraeus’ affair until this past week even though the FBI has been investigating for weeks and even months.
KT McFarland said it wasn’t a very well-kept secret that General Petraeus was having an affair while in Afghanistan over 18 months ago.
Senator Feinstein believes that General Petraeus did the right thing.
I believe that if an affair is the standard, Bill Clinton should have resigned and, as an avid womanizer, he should not have been addressing the DNC Convention about women’s rights.
Senator Feinstein is concerned about the lack of security at the consulate in light of the fact that there were 5 attacks preceding the 9/11 attack.
