Похоже, что обамовские стратеги/тактики достигают своей цели. Читаю разные мнения и точки зрения и вижу, как публика шустро и охотно переключилась на обсуждение «клубнички». Секс-скандал привлекателен и универсально объясняющ. Вот мужественный воин, не чужд человеческих слабостей, к тому же исполнен достоинства – немедленно подал в отставку, а мог бы и не подавать. Но честен, благороден etc. А ведь всего чуть больше двух недель назад резонно задавали другие вопросы:

Petraeus Throws Obama Under the Bus

6:05 PM, OCT 26, 2012 • BY WILLIAM KRISTOL

Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ” 
So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.

It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need? 

И чтобы уж совсем стало интересно, подбросили в топку другого генерала, Джона Аллена. В бесконечном обсасывании клубничных подробностей тонут неприятные вопросы к администрации и Обаме. Тонут, но не до конца. Женщины, которым, казалось бы, отводится роль, определяющая суп-оперу, вдруг начинают говорить что-то за пределами навязываемого жанра:

This week, news reports also suggested that Broadwell revealed classified or sensitive information when she said in an Oct. 26 Denver speech that the fatal attack on the CIA site in Benghazi on Sept. 11 was retaliation for the detention of Libyan militia members, and that Petraeus knew “almost immediately” that the attack was launched by terrorists and had requested assistance. But the allegations of possible terrorist involvement were publicly known at the time, posted on Facebook, and the details about Libyan militia had been reported earlier that day by Fox News. Beyond that, in the last two weeks the CIA has effectively discredited charges made in the same Fox News report that it was slow in responding.


Скандал видимо набирает обороты, хотя пока журналисты проявляют максимальную сдержанность и осторожность в высказываниях. Посмотрим.
