These are extracts form lengthy articles that Wyane Madsen has written about the Patreus-Broadwell affair.
Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette, the commander of the Middle East-deployed USS John Stennis aircraft carrier strike force. Gaouette was sacked by the Navy for “inappropriate leadership judgment” while his carrier group was in the Pacific en route to the Indian Ocean.
Although the Stennis group was in the Pacific during the U.S. consulate siege in Benghazi on September 11, Gaouette's departure had nothing to do with personal misconduct and was very unusual during a deployment.
WMR is being informed by sources throughout the military services that a number of senior military officers throughout the world were involved in the Romney campaign's Jimmy Carter Strategy to embarrass Obama prior to the election. This behavior extended to Petraeus's reported paramour, Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell.
WMR has identified Broadwell an an intelligence agent involved in this right wing plot.
Four-star General William E. "Kip" Ward, the former African-American head of the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), has been stripped of a star and forced to retire as a three-star general for lavish spending, including an expensive layover in Bermuda, and accepting gratuities, including free Broadway show tickets for him and his wife, from a defense contractor.
General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, urged Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to allow Ward to retire as a four-star general, but Panetta ordered the reduction in rank that will cost Ward an estimated $30,000 a year in retirement pay.
Ward's scheduled retirement in April 2011 was delayed until a full investigation was conducted on his spending habits during his assignment as the first chief of AFRICOM.
WMR has also received confirmation from sources close to the White House that President Obama, in the aftermath of the Benghazi mission attack, was made aware of a "Seven Days in May"-style plot against him by senior generals and admirals in league with officials of the Romney campaign.
The sources stated that President Obama's lackluster performance during the first debate in Denver on October 3 was due to the fact that he had just been briefed on the conspiracy launched against him by senior members of the military and the CIA.
The order has now gone out from the White House for Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Secretary Panetta to purge the ranks of disloyal officials.
The Republican party has been aware of the Patreus scandal for a while.
An unidentified FBI agent leaked the Petraeus affair story first to Republican Representatives Dave Reichert (R-WA) and to a staffer of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA).
Then Reichert, instead of following up with FBI director Robert Mueller or Attorney General Eric Holder, informed Cantor's chief of staff, Steven Sombres of the scandal.
In what may be the most critical part of the Petraeus case is that the FBI "deep throat" may be a "no throat." Sombres and Cantor's deputy chief of staff Doug Heye have been identified as key players in the FBI leak story.
