Claim: FBI Was Just Following The Rules By Not Informing Obama

I don't believe they didn't inform Obama. This seems to me, then, to be an explanation of how such a nondisclosure to the president would be borderline plausible.

But I still find it implausible.

The FBI withheld its findings about Gen. David Petreaus' affair from the White House and congressional leaders because the agency considered them the result of a criminal investigation that never reached the threshold of an intelligence probe, law enforcement sources said today.

The sources said agents followed department guidelines that generally bar sharing information about developing criminal investigations. The FBI is also aware of its history under former director J. Edgar Hoover of playing politics and digging into the lives of public figures. As one official said, the rules are designed to protect people (both private and elected officials) when negative information about them arises in the course of a criminal investigation that is not a crime.

The FBI's focus was on whether laws were broken, in this case whether federal cyber-harassment statutes were violated. The sources emphasized that Petraeus himself was never the focus of the investigation, nor did it turn up evidence he broke any law.

So no one ever told the president because the rules, allegedly, said that people couldn't share the information.

Meanwhile, everyone is leaking all over the place on this story, and to reporters, not the president. So we're to believe that "key sources" don't mind a little bit of leaking to reporters, but they observed their obligation to keep criminal probes strictly secret when it came to letting the President know?

8 How do we come back and win: 1) The base, the real base needs to drive what candidates we end up with. I mean, putting aside all preconceived notions, was anyone watching the primary debates and didn't come away with the conclusion that Mitt was the ONLY ONE ON STAGE THAT COULD FUCKING TALK. Others had moments, but clearly he was head and shoulders above the rest, and I didn't like Mitt, he wasn't my first choice but when I saw everyone on stage I was like WTF happened??; 2) We need to limit primary debates and thus damage to candidates; 3) We need to be offensive in advertising and attack any message to define our candidate IMMEDIATELY after the primary; and 4) FOR FUCK'S SAKE, CAN WE GET TOGETHER AND ORGANIZE A GOTV EFFORT IN THE 10 STATES THAT FUCKING REALLY MATTER??????????? Orca, whatever the fuck. Just give me the fucking voter lists and I'll take care of the rest. FUCK. $5M per state and 10MM in the big ones would lock this the fuck up if I were in charge of this shit. How fucking stupid can they be.

People are even now positioning themselves for new positions in the Obama Regimes new government. Who can protect His Nibs more effectively?

What didn't Obama know and this is why we never told him.

My guess is that Obama doesn't even know what his grades were in college, because nobody ever thought he should know about them.

CIA was running an illegal -- by Obama's own executive order -- an illegal detention facility in Benghazi.

The detention facility was discovered and attacked.

To hide the existence of the illegal detention facility, Obama and team lied and used the video as a cover-up to hide the true purpose of the facility and reason for it being attacked.

The only possible crime was a security breach at the highest level in the CIA. And they decided that they were going to play that one close to the chest because gathering evidence for possible criminal prosecution and preserving privacy was more important than determining the extent of and mitigating the breach.

This is also an out and out lie. Any person given access to compartmentalized information signs away their privacy rights for the benefit of information security.

This is a bunch of BS. The President was informed that his CIA director was compromised. There is no other believable scenario.

Yes, there was an Executive Order in September of 2009 (signed by.....blank out) that was to forbid the CIA from running these sorts of "prisons" or "stockades" or "detention centers" off shore because we might ohurt someon's feelings and the Europeans would have a snit about it.

Well, it does appear that the CIA was doing exactly that, under the direction of.....blank out.

See, this is the history of the CIA. They actually are pretty loyal in their own peculiar way, but then when the politicians decide that what they just told the CIA to do (like what JFK and his brother RFK told them to do in the early '60's) is actually "bad optics", well then these bumbling but well intentioned patriots get to fall on their swords for President and country, or whatever people fall on their swords for these days.

There will be a lot of that in the days to come. Because .....blank out....didn't know anything was wrong because.....blank out....was never told by.......blank out.

And the freaks are always voting lefty anyway, so no big loss.

No one with a real brain is going to attack a war hero for serving his country and wanting to do so after the 9-11 talks. A lot of us wanted to do so, we just didn't. He did.

'So, current theory.

"CIA was running an illegal -- by Obama's own executive order -- an illegal detention facility in Benghazi.

"The detention facility was discovered and attacked.

"To hide the existence of the illegal detention facility, Obama and team lied and used the video as a cover-up to hide the true purpose of the facility and reason for it being attacked."

180 Of course the President knew about the secret detention and this whole thing is a cover-up. The most criminal aspect of this is the fact they are willing to take down a General to keep the cover-up going. Bill Clinton schtooped an intern in the Oval Office, an that didn't seem to be a reason for the Libs to throw him out. But, the General, Head of CIA, must?! Even after they admit there was nothing criminal involved?! And it is shameless that Obama and Hillary would have the gaul to appear with those caskets as they came home and promised to find and punish the guy who made a video that caused all of this. This has got to take Obama out of office and ....God Forbid....President Joe Biden. Now this is what will be the end of America as we know it.

189 By the way, the basis for determining the classified information on her computer did not come from Petraeus was based on her statement that Petraeus did not give the documents, and Petraeus statement in a separate interview with the FBI that he did not give her the documents.

Petraeus wasn't charged because there wasn't enough evidence is one way to put it. Agents were unable to determine a crime had been committed by Petraeus.

What SHE was doing is not talked about much, and if SHE were committing crimes they would still be sticking to the story that Petraeus was in the clear, because all he was doing was sleeping with a person who might or might not be guilty of something.

Which is crazy.

By the way, where did those classified documents come from, and how did she get them and why did she have them? If Petraeus didn't give them to her, did she take them? Or if they were given, who gave them?

The question is, "Why did Broadwell so blatantly in that Denver speech tell the world of the detention center."
In her remarks about Petraeus not being able to talk to the press now that he's the Director, she makes herself appear to be supporting him, but in actuality, she's just told the world of an illegal operation by the CIA.
So, did Obama's people put her up to that or was she actually trying to get out Petraeus' story? The former seems more likely.

217 Odds are the White House knew about the affair before he was appointed. That way they know they have a way to keep him under control. Used this knowledge to blackmail him into his Sept 14 testimony where he said that it was likely a spontaneous riot. Here is a man who is an expert in small unit tactics, watches the battle in real time, or later via recording and surely recognized the features of a planned attack. He could not have believed his own testimony so the only explaination that fits the known facts is blackmail. Now called to testify again and face perjury, he bailed out.

256 The existence of an on-site secret prison would certainly explain why the FBI wasn't allowed in for weeks. That CIA quick-response team from Tripoli was probably in there clearing out the evidence. Also explains why Petreaus was yanked so that he wouldn't testify about it.

As it pertains to the motive to deep-freeze Petraeus, it seems like a toss-up. In any event, I'm sure they thought that they would succeed in keeping both under wraps. Neither would be under discussion if the administration had taken greater pains to secure the consulate in the event of an attack. We would all be none the wiser.

318 Patreaus broke at least two federal laws:

1) He lied to FBI investigators who performed his background check when he was appointed to his post as CIA Director.

As part of that employment process, Patreaus was forced to undergo a background check. As part of that background check, he made statements to the FBI that were false. That is a federal offense.

2) He broke another law, by not reporting his sexual affair. All CIA agents (and yes, Patreaus is a CIA agent) are required by law to report any sexual encounter that might be used to blackmail them.

General Patreus is in very big trouble. Assuming of course that the Republicans who run the House of Representatives do their jobs ... put people under oath ... conduct a House Select Committee to Investigate.

I would think such a thing might appropriately be kept secret from the public almost forever, either as a personal matter of the Director or as a national security secret.

321 You know Horowitz's "discover the networks"... has anybody thought of doing some similar "networking" or "mapping" of scandals? Open questions, relationships, link(s) to evidence (articles) so on?

I think that may help out make some of these things real, especially if they're well vetted. To me this is an information thing that could have been possibly up Breitbart's angle. I think it will allow for others to have a place to send people to... it would be another way of getting around the press... and even using them.

322 My fellow Americans, President Obama is just a nice guy who is in over his head. He not a dictator or Mafia Don, nope. The public wouldn't stand for such a thing. Pray for him and God Bless America.

323 321 former mass resident,

the "oh my God it's 3 am!" squad here knows I have gone on at length about netWar and reverse engineering the new opfor....


Guys we know what we need to do it is just the distatste at the fact that I am now to the point I am plugging in some FMs to their system and I am sure some of you feel the same way with perspectives you have.

We're at the point that Billy Ayers is a national treasure and a GI is at best a valued attack dog in some ways.

This is a mess.

325 Guys I can't join in the nuking of an Army wife who thus far only fucked up by marrying a dick.

I paid a price in my sexiness and sanity being a spouse and she's done it a lot longer and harder than me.

I hate power.

Brilliant.

327 someguy- aren't you only speculating that Petraeus did not disclose the affair during the interview? I have had many friends with very high security clearances (albeit not at the level of the CIA Director), and they would have had many sins to confess. They all got their clearances.

328 327 moonbeam,

Yeah I feel you....

I once told wife I couldn't get my foster brother's SC rating...she asked why I said I'm too honest....

maybe then again maybe we're just naive.

this is true. We do not know if he did not disclose it. I am assuming he did. And it was no big deal to anyone (in government at least). No big deal until Benghazi. And now they can blame him, distract with lurid details. He will let them. If he had a problem with the admin he would have talked already. He is not gonna drop a dime on the JEF. He is the fall guy. Works very nicely for everyone.

I get your sentiments....the country is being ripped apart and she is just collateral damage...like all those wifes and kids that get drone attacked by B+rry and Patraeous. This stuff ain't nice at all.

Posted by: torabora at November 12, 2012 09:05 PM (pnL3R)

332 The Administration is spreading so much disinformation/misinformation it's like a fairy tale to them...If/when the emails get leaked it will further humiliate Petraeus.Thus obfuscating the situation more. FBI hates CIA, and alot of CIA hate Petraeus. Meanwhile Hillary seems to have shore-up her creds in the public's eye, and Obama wasn't anywhere near the target. PS Feinstein made a fool of herself yesterday with her declaration she should have been told. Only one day later and the FBI tells her she needs to read her job description again.

333 Have Don Lemon and Anderson Cooter ever done it? The public has a right to know!!!

Done what? You mean Lemon in the Cooper and then they pack it all up?

334 DCI compromised? Possibly leaking secrets?

Nothing to see here, just move along.

335 Obama knew this before he demoted the general, before he promoted him, before Benghazi got confused, before the general dumped the means of extortion.

336 "So no one ever told the president because the rules" sounds an awful damn lot like "Ve vas just folloving orders."

Seig Heil, you blank-minded cowardly shitheads.

337 So under Obama, Border Patrol agent has been killed (and hundreds of Mexicans) by guns Obma ran to Mexican drug cartels; Secret Service gents fooling around with hookers, one killed himself (supposedly); FBI agent ending shirtless photos of himself to someone connected to the CIA investigation; and the CIA director having sex with a kind of disturbing woman, who acquires sensitive information about a secret detention facility of some sort in Libya, where our Ambassador has just recently been killed.

How soon till the first Postal Inspector scandal?
