Foiled again! Reporters baffled by Petraeus’ sneaky ‘mystery entrance to Capitol’

David Petraeus wasn’t sneaky enough to keep his affair with biographer Paula Broadwell under wraps, but this morning he thwarted reporters trying to catch a glimpse of his arrival at the Capitol for closed-door Benghazi hearings.

Cloak of invisibility, perhaps?

It’s a mystery!

Pesky side doors.

Update:

A Twitchy reader nails it:

    This one is more interesting:

    Feinstein is claiming the Whitehouse had real-time video “from a number of sources”.

  • GEORGE_W_TUSH

    The hate is so strong against the President and most of it has to do with race that regardless what is said by Petraeus blind stupidity will be the conclusion for those many lost souls.

    When congress was asked to approve more money for these embassies for security the Republicans voted NO and those with twisted minds will say someone hypnotized them to vote that way.

    Welcome to the world of Trump!

      There was enough money to install charging stations and buy Chevy Volts for embassies, but Hillary doesn’t think security is more of a priority than the peopl who work for her.

      The only race hatred being shown is you and the President.

    • Kevin Krom

      The hate is strong against Obama because of his actions (and inactions), policies, and philosophies. I don’t care if he’s white, black, yellow, or green with orange polka dots. I do care that he is responsible for leaving an ambassador (and others) to die, and that he’s worked 100x harder at covering his tracks than he worked at saving lives when he had the chance.

      • GEORGE_W_TUSH

        The same “actions (and inactions), policies, and philosophie” that got him re-elected?

        Mitt Romney blames loss on President Obama’s ‘gifts’ to voters. Yes, great
        gifts of healthcare, education, equality, and a brighter future

        Did you care when we 3300 dead Americans on 9/11 with advance
        notice to the Idiot-In-Chief GWB. plus 4500 troops for Iraq playground war tosettle his daddy’s score??….I think you know where the math is headed. Nice try though

        • Kevin Krom

          Ah, the good old false logical equivalence play. Unspecific, general warnings of a possible attack means Bush should have stopped it in advance. But Obama sitting on his ass doing NOTHING for 6 FUCKING HOURS while people were dying is ok in comparison.

          • GEORGE_W_TUSH

            Yeah like people not getting water for 4days in New Orleans. While shit for brains Bush sat on his is is ok in comparsion..
            Geez…They should change this site to Bitchy..YOu people are out of your freaking minds…And you wonder why you lost?

          • Kevin Krom

            Bzzt. You lose again.

            The Bush Administration was begging Louisiana to declare an emergency before Katrina hit so that they could get FEMA in there (you know, that whole state vs. fed delineation thing), but Gov. Blanco refused to do so. Meanwhile, the neighboring states who were hit almost as hard hard no problem getting assistance, because they prepared.

            Meanwhile, large parts of Staten Island are still suffering, while FEMA closes up shop for weather. How’s that for moral equivalence?

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Oh no, it couldn’t POSSIBLY be Mayor Nagin or Gov. Blano’s fault, OH NOES!! COULDN’T BE!!

        • ByondPolitics

          How long before you can let Bush go?

          • GEORGE_W_TUSH

            Apparently 61% still thinks he is responsible for this economy…Go figure? Dubya, the gift that keeps on giving… Americans will never forget

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Yes, and 75% of food stamp recipients got Obama re-elected. Welfare, the gift that keeps you voting Democratic.

          • GEORGE_W_TUSH

            Actually the screwed up economy keeps them voting f/Dems.Over half of America is not stupid or blind unlike the people on this site and faux news…

            Oh, gosh… I thought it was the 140% of registered voters in several counties in Ohio and Florida who voted for Obama.

      Two questions:

      Why are you liberals the only ones to see the color of someone’s skin?
      What the hell is “allot”?

      • GEORGE_W_TUSH

        “Why are you liberals the only ones to see the color of someone’s skin?”

        Im assuming libs have eyes and a brain..

        “What the hell is “allot”?”
        Thats a good question…

        • Garth Haycock

          Eyes, yes. But libs having a brain is doubtful, considering you completely missed the point of my question.

          When conservatives see a man, woman or child, they see a man, woman or child. When liberals see a man, woman or child, they see skin color.

          Why?

    Of course no reporter could see Petraeus. It would take a reverse colonoscope for them to see anything from Obama’s lower GI tract.

  • louisiana_mom

    A highly trained military general thwarts reporters who have been on hiatus for the past 4 years… And they are shocked?

    • Kevin Krom

      And (now former) CIA director too. I mean, we’d need to be asking for a pretty heft refund if someone like that can’t move with stealth when needed. :)

    Did it ever occur to the press that that wasn’t really a Papa Johns delivery boy at the front door?
    .
    What am I saying……?

  • GEORGE_W_TUSH

    How long before the GOP finds a way to connect Patreaus’ affair to a possible impeachment of Obama? 5 minutes?

    This sounds like a case of the “fog of war”. And of Republicans trying desperately to stir up a scandal. Because they got nuthin. Nuthin except obstruction, lies, failure, racism, sexism, and desperate attempts to create a distraction. Two more years of this and the rest of them will be thrown out too.

    Give up on the GOP Benghazipalooza…

    • Garth Haycock

      You are proof that progressivism is innate. Why would anyone choose to be so stupid?

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Oh, you mean the obstruction by the Obama Admin, to the families of those that were killed? Or, do you mean the Senate Obstructionist Leader Stinky Reid? You’re pathetic.

  • GEORGE_W_TUSH

    Republican politicians and minions are deflecting on every rational topic with a grasping at straws fabrication designed to exploit the loss of life in Libya, while real Americans are suffering from Hurricane Sandy.

    Two of the prime terrorist suspects in the Benghazi attack have been captured (one is deceased), dozens more have been arrested and the suspect group is dispersed and hunted, with its Benghazi headquarters dismantled — but one wouldn’t know this listening to Republicans inside the Benghazi bubble, whether partisans or reporters.

    Get a life already…

    • Garth Haycock

      It’s good to hear you admit that you don’t think the 4 killed in Benghazi are not “real” Americans. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Yes, and I’m sure if they hadn’t done a thorough investigation following the death of Whitney Houston, the left would be outraged. Had to prove she wasn’t a drug addict but guess what, she was. Christie even flew the flag at half-staff for that… but not for the 4 Americans killed, saving the lives of at least 30 others.

    • Guest

      It’s ok if you want to sweep a terrorist attack under the rug to protect your master but don’t expect others to. I actually care that our president went on national tv and lied to the American people when he knew all along what was going on. So go put your head back in the sand because reality can be a scary place.

  • GEORGE_W_TUSH

    GOP cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in 2011 and $331 million in 2012

    If you want to know who is responsible in this town, buy yourself a mirror

    • http://twitter.com/JeanP1_2_3 Jean, Just Jean

      There was more security in “safe” European countries than Libya. More in Caribbean countries. Charging station for Chevy Volts at embassies? Seems the State Dept didn’t allocate funds very wisely. Maybe that’s why the security failure? Did the GOP cut the funding, or did they not increase the funding by that much? Because that’s not a cut you know, that’s giving them less money than they asked for, but still more than the received before.

    • mike_in_kosovo

      How’d they do that, when the Obama administration hasn’t passed a budget in the last 3 years?

  • Streetiebird

    With all the crazed rightwingers out for blood it was a smart move to whisk him in secretly.

  • Jerry J Brown

    duh…helllo….he’s a spy

      The man is a Ninja. Funny, he couldn’t keep an affair a secret. Not funny, ha, ha. Funny, strange and suspicious.

  • shortstack5

    Huh– I guess that, unlike Hogwarts, one can apparate into the Capitol.

  • medicinewomantwo

    Basically, you can piss on a reporters leg and they haven’t a clue how it got wet.
