-- all this going on in the Middle East we have a a national security scandal and a national security major investigation going on here to the to the scandal first General David Petraeus.
Resigning his CIA director as we -- -- -- no.
General John Allen dragged into this -- abroad -- David Petraeus his biographer -- whom he was having -- a fact.
And it all started because -- she send mean emails.
Two Jill Kelly this Florida socialite.
Who -- apparently pulled ruled wells or as a romantic our rival although there's nothing to suggest that walls.
And he romance between General Petraeus and Joseph Kelly it is shaped tangled web but.
The moment KT.
It seems to me.
That while this conversation about a Ben Ghazi Lincoln.
Not tell the truth to members of congress because he was being leaned on about having an effect.
That is nothing.
Other than speculation that he -- seems to me right now we have here a classic case of men behaving badly in the women who love those men are.
Well said how tough that -- Out -- -- what if fairness sex scandals aside there's a still a significant issue on -- gusting and I think it's a lot bigger than men casting it's not just.
Why why do we not giving them adequate support to our people -- -- it would have been.
Missed it by -- -- at least thing was especially our first -- -- to put the -- of that aside you you would agree that at.
The moment there is nothing in the general betray in the did David Petraeus resignation.
And the the sort of kiss and tell scandal surrounding that that is a link to -- Ghazi and it will get on.
I don't know I mean there's having -- parent does not terrorist -- question did he.
The somehow was his testimony or his briefing of congress -- as September 13 affected did he know that -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- In Afghanistan.
As soon as Paula -- while laughs I came and I.
Why is kind of man.
Who would in your opinion knowing him as you do.
Change his testimony to congress because somebody was leaning -- him about it -- fat.
It seems to me from everybody I've spoken to who knows him well he's a man of greater moral five of them back.
Yes I would say yes except that if two things I would not a -- be dumb enough to do something like he's done it secondly.
And so that's like the thirteenth time of a clock extraordinary in and of itself.
And calls into question all which proceeded it.
I think that the second thing malice at the time there was a lot of confusion and -- and -- the Egyptian situation wasn't demonstration.
So there could have been room heard sort of a different interpretation on September 13 -- I think -- September 15 now.
These -- the hearings on the way it seems that Democrats are saying it.
How day you Republicans.
Talk about the secured the lack of security for ambassador Stephens and his colleagues.
What it was you Republicans who refused to give funding for it that makes congresswoman -- is at least very angry that.
You know there are so petty little stuff I mean at the end of the day -- the administration doesn't have a credible timeline I think that we then move to the next step which is can some kind of -- can select committee hearings like Watergate like Iran Contra -- because it's now the American.
Public is focused on I think initially with a fantastic thing.
They -- I got away with.
Because we were nobody was focused -- for Fox News but now that it's a sex scandal everybody's -- there so no I don't think I don't think it -- -- You have to.
Absolutely no doubt -- we the people will misled by a I don't.
There are two things it what it was hit a complete and total incompetence yeah.
Boring there was there was such negligence of the point -- moment.
There's -- there's no in between it's one of those who.
I was going to be an hour you know I don't think that there's there's because this is a -- major failure of intelligence.
Decision making a -- -- now I think it was.
-- that but the president ought to do.
It's come forward immediately and even if you screwed -- -- screwed up you but we need an explanation because it just so many unanswered things.
What was the FBI investigating CIA permanent and several administrations at the highest level you if you got one agency of government investigating another agency of government and nobody knows about it -- the president didn't know about the White House in the back congress to know about it.
This is more like.
The second thing.
Is that -- General Petraeus what his his relationship was his security compromise probably not -- I wanna be reassured that it wasn't right because this is a national security issue we're now finding that classified documents are all over the place.
And then the third thing I think the bigger thing is.
Have little screwed up her middle east policy this is not just about -- -- it's about the entire region we have toppled dictator's right and left.
-- -- and in their wake is not come pro American government's anti American governments governments like the Libyan government.
Which can protect American citizens so I think it's a it's a much bigger nations although the reason everybody is paying attention.
30000 emails to -- -- Allen and General Petraeus says that.
Mistress doing general -- to survive this now -- That there which means we lost -- everybody and those who have to.
It's great hands and great great military -- it is.
And it's not just -- would look at what the president now has to do in the next month or two yes or replace his entire national security team secretary of state secretary of defense.
He's got to replace the Afghanistan war commander is just about to get -- -- -- advice on whether to.
Fast walk this withdraw or not he's got to replace the head of the CIA that's almost the entire national security.
You sit in this administration -- thoughts I don't -- a phone call.
I wish you when I was that would that would be very exciting and very good for the country KT McFarland -- national security analyst thanks very --
