There seem to more partisans from both sides here than anyplace else I
frequent, so I thought I'd throw this out and hear all the conspiracy
The newsdroids I listen too are hinting that the future 'scandal' will
be that nothing was made public until after the election.
I can think of ways that it might have been spun by either side to
some tiny bit of advantage-- but doubt either would have gained much,
and the risk in saying anything bad about Petraeus is/was high.
[The left could say - 'another R who can't control his dick' - and the
right would point out that he is an Obama appointee]
was the head of the FBI, and no harm would come from delaying
making the investigation public, I would wait until after the election
just for clarity.
That said- does anyone think it was made public late for political
purposes? By which side? Or was the timing just what it was.
