the frail talked of matters unspeakable.
the source was sought. in "tracking back" back to petraeus, the affair between petraeus & the frail was discovered/confirmed.
obama used the "affair" to lever petraeus's resignation.
petraeus, on the other hand, used his knowledge of obama's misdeeds & boners to lever concessions from obama that no prosecution would be sought of him for the intelligence leaks, nor any fiddling around with his pension and retirement benefits would be sought.
a "draw" between obama and petraeus, on that.
the remaining questions. will petraeus testify before congress on benghazi. my guess is, if he is subpoenaed, he will be less than forthcoming. he has cut his deal, he will observe it.
if so, a win for obama on that point.
update, this date: not everyone is on the same page if my view of the matter above is anywhere close to being right. it seems that f.b.i. agents are to the home of the frail, and she is being grilled. and, u.s. senator feinstein is hopping mad, and swears to investigate. if there is any deal between patraeus and obama, these worthies are apparently not in on it.
if the world caves in on patraeus, certainly not the first man to be betrayed by his dick, then what is there to keep him from spilling the beans on obama? the very ones he wanted to leak?
somewhere in this fair land of ours, the phone wires are humming. stay tuned. end update.

p.s. yes, petraeus pissed on obama's pant leg, but obama could not touch him until the affair was confirmed. and, yes, petraeus knows a lot more, has a lot more on obama.
personally, i think this knowledge a lot more important than petraeus's pension. he may not be of that belief.
in my view, if congress wants petraeus's help, they should act to preserve his rank, and protect his pension and rights upon retirement, to the extent that they can. this will be difficult, given the democrat's control of the senate, and that such control is exercised by shitheads.
shitheads not interested in having you and i know what they know.
