Seriously, Obama Administration, This Is Just Hideously Bad Optics

Defense Secretary Panetta claimed not to know much about the Petraeus scandal, saying he was “reading the papers like you are”.

So… anybody else feel a little disconcerted that the guy in charge of protecting this country from our enemies is bragging that he has no idea what the hell is going on?

  1. @1 – I had to look that up:

    “Key to the concept of Omerta is that any member of the organization must maintain absolute silence when questioned by law enforcement on the subject of alleged illegal activities by other members of the organization. This can result in one member “taking the fall” for others, facing criminal contempt of court charges or even taking sole responsibility for a crime that others committed. He does this with the assurance that he and his family will be supported by the organization during and after his imprisonment.”

  2. Meanwhile, Eric Holder is happier than a pig in manure (aka Janet Napolitano) because no one is paying the slightest attention to Fast and Furious. So many scandals, only 2 terms (we hope) to fit them all in.

  3. He “reads the papers“…?

    That’s so 80’s, why doesn’t he just watch Jon Stewart and SNL like every other well informed liberal?. And what about Facebook, how often does he check that? That’s where all the good stuff is.

  4. Ah, the old Sergeant Schultz approach to life…he sees nothing and knows nothing. At least he admits he knows nothing, unlike certain presidents I can think of (particularly in relation to economics, security, defense, basic facts of life, history, manners etc.).
