Petraeus, a honey trap, and the Chicago Way «

Petraeus, a honey trap, and the Chicago Way «

David Petraeus got caught in a classic “honey trap,” and then, rather than lie under oath before Congress, he sprang the trap on himself.

Events in Washington D.C. are seldom as they appear.

Likewise for Chicago, except when things appear corrupted the Chicago Way.

The recent resignation of CIA Director and former Army General David Petraeus reeks of the Chicago Way flavored with Vito Corleone’s advice to “keep your friends close and your enemies closer”.

The legacy media is promoting this version of the story:  Petraeus had an affair with aattractive, younger woman. An FBI investigation found out about it and discovered that his email correspondence with the woman had been compromised. Recognizing the potential scandal he faced, Petraeus resigned, rather than cover it up. End of story.

Just your garden-variety sex scandal, right?

Who’s kidding who here? Or trying to.
