    Default General Patraeus...big deal?

    Is this "scandal" with the general a big deal to anyone?

    No not really. If a general and you think it would a great idea to sleep with the author who wrote your autobiography then make sure you delete your e-mails. You would think that he would know that but no the FBI found out by e-mail. I don't like that fact that he said was going to retaire because of it. Man up and own your affair. Say yes I did it and I'm sorry I hurt my family and blah blah blah but I'm going to say in.

    I suppose. Hell, Clinton was bangin Lewinsky and that was like..."Ihhh did not have sex with that woooman." lol. Certainly he is a bigger fish than Petraeus. I don't think Obama should have accepted his resignation. The guy is a stellar general. Let him bang a couple bitches. So what.

    ehhh, anybody can talk anytime they want. Having an affair doesn't stop or start this. If she had access to sensitive information, that would be something else. I doubt that with all the security this would be even possible. If the prez wants to know something, anything, he gets told or has access. Nobody says no to president. I just think this is a whole lot about nothing. Personal indiscretion. I bet his wife is pissed.

    ok...not sure what that means. My agenda is he can bang who he wants as longs as it doesn't screw up national security. This is being blown out of proportion. Pun intended.

    There are giant risks to national security everyday. As long as nothing was breached, yeah, we're good. Obviously you try to minimize risk and exposure to it, but that is damn near impossible to stop any and all. People are people. This could have been handled internally a lot better than what we are seeing played out.
