#1 "It is irresponsible and flat out wrong for Fox News to run an anonymous, unsubstantiated, and blatantly false accusation,.."

You mean like the White House blaming a film maker for the attack on the Libyan consulate?

#2 From Powerline:
"In the post immediately below, Scott recaps some of the recent developments in the Petraeus scandal. I want to add one or two more, and also elaborate a bit on one of the items that Scott mentioned.

The most significant of the recent bombshells, I think, is the report that Eric Holder knew about the scandal as of late summer, when the FBI contacted his office to get permission to interview Petraeus and Paula Braodwell. Holder apparently claims that he never mentioned this potentially election-derailing news to his boss and good buddy, Barack Obama. I find this claim–that, while many others in Washington knew of the Petraeus investigation, including Congressmen like Eric Kantor, Obama himself was blissfully ignorant until three days after the election–wholly implausible, just as I find implausible the claim that it was sheer coincidence that the scandal didn’t become public until then."

#4 From wretchard:
What jumps out of the account is that Petraeus didn’t see it coming. He didn’t think it was a big deal. He had fixed the problem, talked to Broadwell. The other woman wasn’t going to press charges. She was a family friend. There was no crime — if we leave aside adultery. It was family court business. Maybe not even that if no one was going to make an issue of it.

And then he gets called after election day, and boom he gets called to carpet. How do you like that? I for one, don’t like it. Most workplaces you can tell if your being measured for a termination notice.

It strongly suggests is that Petraeus isn’t a problem with something that has happened. He’s a problem with something that is going to happen. There’s some loop Petraeus is not part of. Something he’s in the way of.
