Let me start right out of the gate acknowledging that my prayers are with the Petraeus family, as their family name is excoriated on the National stage.  I would further preface with Galatians 6:1:

“Bretheren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.”

As many pastors have well said… sin takes you further than you want to go and makes you pay more than you want to pay.

The point to my meanderings here and the title of this post..Something is broken, is no shock to any of us paying attention, for how often does the “Media” give attention to that which is not worthy, whilst ignoring that which is worthy.  So now every possible outlet is covering the developing scandal and how provocative it is. But back in September…Benghazi?  Cue the crickets. 

So we know something is broken, and has been for a long time.  We will see and hear, get quotes from thousands of emails, see the unmerciful labels such as General “Betray-Us”, and watch as the scandal unfolds and destroys a family, a man of service, etc.  But what of Benghazi?  Those who died, what was going on there preceding the attack?  Well we may not know this side of eternity, the frustration of say the Woods family, a decent and God fearing family, I’m sure are among those desirous of answers.  They all deserve answers and so far it’s just double talk and scandal.
