Geopolitics with Ryan Dawson- Episode 1: The Embarrassing Petraeus Scandal with Jason Ditz


A symptom of our overall asinine policies, incompetent departments & sensationalist media

GPWhat really happened in Benghazi? Did it really have anything to do with a tasteless YouTube video? Was there green on blue? How does this poor planning and preparation fit with the disastrous regional policies of drone strikes on random victims, arming Salafi Jihadist, and outsourcing security to locals who hate us? Jason Ditz of Antiwar.com and Ryan Dawson discuss.

This is the first episode of our new weekly podcast show ‘Geopolitics with Ryan Dawson.’ Our future episodes will be available only to Boiling Frogs Post subscribers. Enjoy!

  1. Really good conversation.
    Thanks.

  2. More on the cat fight http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/13/john-allen-petraeus_n_2120609.html?icid=maing-grid10|htmlws-main-bb|dl1|sec1_lnk1%26pLid%3D233769

    “ABOARD A U.S. MILITARY AIRCRAFT — In a new twist to the Gen. David Petraeus sex scandal, the Pentagon said Tuesday that the top American commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, is under investigation for alleged “inappropriate communications” with a woman who is said to have received threatening emails from Paula Broadwell, the woman with whom Petraeus had an extramarital affair.

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said in a written statement issued to reporters aboard his aircraft, en route from Honolulu to Perth, Australia, that the FBI referred the matter to the Pentagon on Sunday.

    Panetta said that he ordered a Pentagon investigation of Allen on Monday.

    A senior defense official traveling with Panetta said Allen’s communications were with Jill Kelley, who has been described as an unpaid social liaison at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., which is headquarters to the U.S. Central Command. She is not a U.S. government employee.”

    An “unpaid SOCIAL LIAISON” That is a very fancy name for a honey pot.

  3. Great addition to your site adding Ryan Dawson. He is very intelligent, informed, and a great clear voice for radio. I’ll be listening. To his show every week.

  4. When you ask the question, why is the US doing this type of stuff…things like money, power, incompetence are often the answer. I would suggest the addition of a condition called psychopathy as an adjunct to that list. Andrew Lobaczewski wrote a book called Political Ponerology which is about just that: the rise of psychopaths (essentially people with no conscience, who are often highly charismatic, enjoy manipulation and inflicting suffering) into positions of political power.

  5. @Luke for sure, true psychopaths and there are so many of them in government.

    More news on the scandal http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/13/top-us-commander-in-afghanistan-gen-john-allen-under-investigation-for-alleged/?cmpid=prn_aol&icid=maing-grid10%7Chtmlws-main-bb%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D234301

    “The investigation focuses on emails between Allen and Jill Kelley, a close friend of the Petraeus family. Kelley was the woman who originally notified the FBI when she received threatening emails from Petraeus’ mistress Paula Broadwell — and that investigation later uncovered the affair.

    One senior defense official initially described the nature of the communications between Allen and Kelley as “flirtatious.” However, two U.S. officials later told Fox News that Allen’s contact with Kelley was more than just general flirting. One official described some of the emails as sexually explicit and the “equivalent of phone sex over email.”

    Looks like one honey trap telling on another one.
