FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The Petraeus-Broadwell-Kelley Timeline

For your consideration, I've assembled an approximate timeline of the various skulduggery involving Petraeus, Broadwell and Kelley.

11/15/11 Affair between Petraeus and Broadwell said to begin
01/24/12 "All In", Broadwell's biography of Petraeus, released
05/15/12 Jill Kelley begins receiving threatening emails from Broadwell
07/04/12 Affair between Petraeus and Broadwell said to end
08/15/12 A.G. Holder notified of affair between Petraeus and Broadwell
09/11/12 Ambassador Stevens, three other Americans killed in Benghazi
09/14/12 Petraeus testifies under oath that killings started as protest over video
10/26/12 Broadwell reveals secret CIA prison in Benghazi during Denver speech
10/27/12 Republicans including Eric Cantor informed of Petraeus affair
11/07/12 White House claims it was first notified of Petraeus affair
11/11/12 Jill Kelley hires law firm

The timeline is intriguing.

Investors Business Daily muses that the administration may have used their discovery of the Petraeus affair as leverage for false testimony before Congress.

What say you, dear reader?

Krauthammer agrees with INVESTORS.

Petraeus thought he, his secret, and his career were safe by covering for Team Zero - thus, he lied. Hahaha - they pulled the rug out from under him.
Perhaps he'll now tell the truth.
Can't lose much more.
Maybe he'll even regain some self-respect.

What's with Eric Cantor?

Yep, the WH (Axelrod has a history of manipulating infidelity to Obama's advantage) blackmailed Petraeus to get him to lie to Congress. Then, when the Benghazi coverup fell apart, and Petraeus conducted his personal investigation, the whole house of cards was to crash at the next Petraeus hearing before Congress. The WH fired Petraeus and made public his failings. This helps the WH because Petreaus may testify but he now has diminished credibility and does not have access to his former files to testify accurately. It also helps the WH by sending a message to anyone else who can testify to things that embarass the WH. They can destroy the Director of the CIA so anyone even thinking of telling the truth better understand they will be crushed. Finally, it helps the WH because it will now fill the open slot with a sycophant toady. Finally, the story is now complex and involves sex so the average democratic party voter will never be capable of understanding it - except for the part about sex.

The Military is apparently the first target.
