121113033840-david-petraeus-horizontal-large-galleryWhen I first read this story I thought it was a joke.  Famous betrayer of his own country David Patraeus (pronounced Betray-US) and retired astronaut Mark Kelly have started a new gun control group called Veterans Coalition for Common Sense. The next by Mark Kelly  is priceless.

“As service members, each of us swore an oath to protect our Constitution and the homeland. Now we’re asking our leaders to do more to protect our rights and save lives,”

As a reminder, General Patraeus (head of the CIA at the time) was forced to resign after it was discovered he was having an affair with his biographer.  After pleading guilty to a misdemeanor (many felt his actions warranted a felony conviction), Patraeus was sentenced to 2 years probation and a $100,000 fine for giving classified information to his mistress.

Here is a man armed with a PhD and who spent 37 years serving his country that compromised the safety and security of his own country and those with whom he served to help his lover.  He betrayed his wife, his family and his country.  Patraeus “…swore an oath to protect our Constitution…” and instead violated the oath for his own selfish purposes.

He espouses the need for ‘common sense’ yet did not have the common sense to not compromise national security for his mistress and does not have the ‘common sense’ to recognize the hypocrisy of his own actions.

Patraeus could not be convinced under the threat of prison to not share secrets with his lover yet now expects that tougher gun laws will prevent other criminals (since he is a criminal) to be deterred from violating new laws related to guns.

Let that sink in for a moment..
