No one in that administration knows what the hell is going on and no one is taking responsibility for it. Had this been a Republican administration, you'd all be outraged and would be crying for impeachment. Dare to disagree???

bipartisan? are you ****ing kidding me? The only reason that's even an issue is that a desperate political candidate tried to politicize Benghazi.

Even the Congressional hearings on this, the witnesses had to agree that all the disputed security measures were for Tripoli not Benghazi which are as far away as Brooklyn and Charlotte are.

They also had to agree that that the disputed security measures would not have deterred a coordinated attack this large.

No criminal charges have been filed against Broadwell, whose glowing biography of Petraeus, “All In: The Education of General David Petraeus,” was published in January. But on Monday night, it appeared the feds’ investigation was far from concluded. About 10 agents entered Broadwell’s tony Charlotte, N.C., home at 8:40 p.m. wearing blue latex gloves and carrying bags and boxes. They photographed the exterior of the house, entered using a key and could be seen scouring rooms and apparently collecting evidence for two hours.

A prankster even ordered a Domino’s pizza to be delivered to the residence, adding to the circus atmosphere. Investigators didn’t answer when the deliveryman rung the doorbell.

This was in the Charlotte Observer this morning:


Quote:
This week the world has been watching Mount Vernon Avenue, where I’ve lived for three decades, because of the involvement of my neighbor, Paula Broadwell, in the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus.

Paula and her family aren’t home, but for days a crowd of reporters has been here from sunup to well past sundown, peering at her house and hoping she’d show up.

Mount Vernon is in Dilworth, Charlotte’s oldest suburb, a mile from the city’s central business district. It’s a short street, just five blocks. Lined with majestic willow oaks and maples ablaze with fall foliage, it looks like a tidy residential avenue where the most exciting event might be the annual banding of the oaks to avert cankerworm infestation.

In fact, life here is rich – and sometimes wild.

Take the Broadwells’ house, for example. It once was home to the late Steve Courtland, a prominent lawyer and passionate Democrat. One year Courtland, a tall, burly man, donned what must have been the world’s largest chicken costume and wore it to Republican rallies to protest the incumbent congressman’s refusal to debate his Democratic challenger.

The Alexander Graham family lived on the street when he was the local school superintendent. His son, Frank Porter Graham, became president of the University of North Carolina, then in 1949 was appointed to a vacant U.S. Senate seat, but lost it in a 1950 election still rued for its racism.

Bill Culp once lived on the street, when he was county elections director. On Halloween he’d dress up in a red devil costume. In 1999 he went to federal prison for taking kickbacks in voting machine deals.

For years before he was elected to Congress, Mel Watt lived on Myrtle Avenue half a block off Mount Vernon. His home had a deed restriction barring blacks. In 2005-06 he chaired the Congressional Black Caucus.

Not your ordinary neighbors

On the same block lived the Red Hornet Mayday Tribe, a band of hippie radicals (and, police believed, drug peddlers) with an impish bent and funding from leader Kathy Taft Sparrow, of the Ohio Tafts.

In 1971 the Hornets tried to infiltrate a local Billy Graham Day celebration where President Richard Nixon was a guest. Security people used harsh, arbitrary methods to keep them out. The Hornets sued the government over their treatment, and lost.

For one deposition, a tribesman showed up wearing blue tights, a baseball cap and a red cape. The cape, he explained, would enable him to “leap over 14 defense attorneys on a motorcycle.”

William Tager lived in the Myrtle Apartments, which border the back yards of Mount Vernon houses. In 1986 he assaulted television journalist Dan Rather on Park Avenue in New York, repeatedly yelling “Kenneth, what is the frequency?”

Mount Vernon’s lore also includes such figures as the corporate lawyer – I’ll preserve his anonymity – who was so agitated by a neighbor lady’s cats marauding in his yard that he attacked them with an air rifle. Neighbors called him (tastelessly, I admit) “Lee Harvey.”

To outsiders, Mount Vernon looks placid and its residents upright, even prim. We insiders know that appearances can be misleading.

Ed Williams retired in 2008 as editor of The Observer’s editorial pages.

More Dilworth news.

From the comments:
Quote:
Looks like Dilworth might want to hire a tour guide...if just for the media

I think I've found my calling.

Quote:
The man police and neighbors called “The Dilworth Flasher” after he was accused of exposing himself to women has been arrested again – this time after police say he exposed himself near a hospital.

Michael Wayne Adams, 36, was arrested on Monday and charged with indecent exposure, public *********ion and with violating the city’s open container ordinance.

Police arrested him after they saw he exposed himself near Carolinas Medical Center.

Adams was arrested in February after he was accused of flashing women – including once as he rode a bike.

Information from the women, as well as anonymous tips, led investigators to Adams, police said.

And police say they linked him to other flashing cases on South Boulevard and in uptown.

Records show Adams is a felon with convictions dating back to the 1990s. He’s been convicted of assault on a female, breaking and entering and assault with a deadly weapon, according to the N.C. Department of Correction.

Adams was released from jail on an unsecured $6,500 bond.

Anyone with information about the cases is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.

Man the Petraeus legacy is falling fast, a year ago, I never thought we'd see articles like this. This was written by the grandson of a three star general.

Quote:
A Phony Hero for a Phony War

The genius of General Petraeus was to recognize early on that the war he had been sent to fight in Iraq wasn’t a real war at all. This is what the public and the news media — lamenting the fall of the brilliant hero undone by a tawdry affair — have failed to see. He wasn’t the military magician portrayed in the press; he was a self-constructed hologram, emitting an aura of preening heroism for the ever eager cameras.......

he conned the news media into thinking he was the most remarkable general officer in the last 40 years, and, by playing hard to get, he conned the political establishment into thinking that he could morph into Ike Part Deux and might one day be persuaded to lead a moribund political party back to the White House.

THE problem was that he hadn’t led his own Army to win anything even approximating a victory in either Iraq or Afghanistan.

Outside of a few kooks there was no cry for the impeachment of President Bush with all that went on during his administration and outside of a few kooks there won't be any calls for impeachment of President Obama over what has happened during his administration thus far. I do agree a thorough investigation should take place to find out what happened, how there was a break down and how we can fix it so it never happens again. All the hysteria from both sides needs to stop.

No one could, because we won the actual war, but lost the political war and occupation. Under current rules no general from our history could win an occupation like that.
