Petraeus Opposed Drone Strikes b/c They Offend Muslims, Nixed Hits on Several Terrrorists

By Debbie Schlussel

David Petraeus’ urge to pander to Muslims spared terrorists’ lives and cost Americans their lives.


David Petraeus’ Islamo-Ass Kissing on Steroids Interrupted for Now

As I’ve repeatedly told you, the disgraced former CIA Director, Petraeus, was (and remains) an Islamo-pandering, anti-Israel specimen of political correctness and dhimmitude. And I’m glad he’s gone, unlike way too many conspiracy theorists on the right who insist that this liberal was “our guy.” But, now, we’re learning that Petraeus’ pandering to the Islamic world may have cost U.S. lives . . . and I’m not talking about the Benghazi attack on the U.S. consulate. Petraeus was hated by the CIA, and when a man who is a pan-Arabist is hated by even the pan-Arabist CIA that says something. And, in this case, it says that he was to the left of even them when it comes to the Islamic world. David Petraeus didn’t want to offend his Muslim buddies in greater Arabia, and he spared the lives of known terrorists by refusing many drone strikes, even when his own counterterrorism chief felt those strikes were imperative.

From the Wall Street Journal:

On more substantive issues, agency officers sometimes chafed under what they saw as Mr. Petraeus’s more controlling style, the former official said. In his efforts to more closely align the CIA’s drone program, aimed at killing terror suspects, with diplomatic sensitivities, Mr. Petraeus sometimes clashed with the agency’s Counterterrorism Center chief, with Mr. Petraeus denying requests to strike a particular target.

[Emphasis added.]

For those who don’t get it, “diplomatic sensitivities” means: “I don’t wanna upset Muslims in power by killing Islamic terrorists, so I think I’ll let them live to kill more Americans.” In case you doubt that, remember that “diplomatic sensitivities” was the reason America didn’t kill Osama Bin Laden when we saw him hunting with some princes from the United Arab Emirates (which also would have spared many American lives lost).

How many terrorists lived to kill more American soldiers, Westerners, and other innocent civilians because David Petraeus refused to allow drone strikes against them because he didn’t want to upset his past partners in shawarmeh dinners?

We’ll never know. But, clearly, it was more than one. And even one is one too many.

David Petraeus jeopardized American lives so he could kiss Muslim ass. It was Muslim ass-kissing on steroids. Anyone who wishes he was still in power is an idiot. An America-hater. Or a Muslim. Or all three.

I am amazed how deferential even Republicans have been towards Petraeus. His resume keeps getting touted, but his actual accomplishments are never articulated by anyone that I have seen. Petraeus was apparently a political general. His failures in Iraq and Afghanistan never tarnished him in the eyes of his boosters. Petraeus’s pandering to his civilian superiors and the well connected on the outside ensured that his career never hit a snag until now. He finally got too lazy and complacent when he started up an affair(doubtful that it was the first)with Paula Broadwell. Petraeus was an egomaniac who was more concerned with pleasing his superiors than with supporting those beneath him.

Petreus is a scumbag and a disgrace to the Army. I’ve despised him and knew he was a creep from when he switched to the berets for all soldiers to make us seem more “European”, I guess.

Loser still won’t say the obvious.

The very name David is disgraced when a Dhimmi uses it. This guy subordinated US interests to the islamo-Nazi PLO’s demand to have Israel demolished as the price for clicking “like” on the American facebook. A conspiracist would almost think Broadwell is a Jewish Mata Harri agent sent to compromise him. Good Riddance to bad rubbish

    “Good Riddance”?

    I have been careful to not think that thought, for wonder that, he might rise from a crypt, somewhere, . . .

    As partial remuneration for his role in Afghan Bible-burning and other left-wing skulduggery and treason, he could well be offered a cushy job at a university, . . .

Liberals are always right by default these days (BetrayUs & Bush Derangement Syndrome). It would be nice if those mentally ill losers will finally get hip to the actual reasons for disliking someone who is NOT good for the USA in lieu of their fabricated “2 Minutes Hate” meltdown fantasy reasons.

They don’t even get close. But they are winning and gaining ground like Islamists. It’s getting to be beyond annoying.

It just keeps getting worse and worse. More of the generals onion layers gets peeled away, the worse it gets. It sickens me every time I read of yet another missed opportunity to erase a terrorist just because they’re in the close vicinity of somebody else. The old saying of “Birds of a feather flock together” comes to mind. Common sense is obviously not in adequate supply. Anywhere.

So now we know, without question, that the problem with Petraeus was not that he simply implemented W’s disasterous “hearts and minds” approach; he actually believed in it.

Yes, and I’m sure the Kenyan is going to replace him with a strong supporter of Israel. LMAO

Zero, like all his mentors, despises Jews. Eventually some will finally understand that.

“…On Steroids…”

I wonder if Paula and the General were juicing. Quite the physical prowess.

Erratic aggressive behaviour brought down Tiger Woods, right? And propelled Lance Armstrong to a multi-millionaire celebrity.

Are steroids or human growth hormone use pervasive in the military? Overseas?

Are these Nose Job Sisters dealing? Any thoughts along these lines and the Arab/muslim community cell in Florida, Debbie?
