Don't tell me the NY Slimes left off the biggest of the biggest: Bubba.
 Quoting: truthwillsetyoufreeagain


They also left off Kennedy & Eisenhower...

I understand Bill (Don't antagonize Hilldog) and I understand Kennedy (the publisher had an affair w/ Caroline) but wouldn't Eisenhower be the perfect comparison (General's war-time affair w/ a service woman and all)?
 Quoting: DarbyDoom


Eisenhower is on the list. His nickname was "Ike."
 Quoting: truthwillsetyoufreeagain


Thanks I skipped right over it... So then we understand the glaring omissions - don't want to make Caroline or Hillary angry...

Right. Interesting.

I guess they don't think people are smart enough to figure out who's missing.

Even a low level intelligence operative knows better than to send potentially damaging emails EVER. That the head of all the spies in the most powerful country on earth sent sexually explicit emails from his home computer says one of two things: Either 1) He is SO STOOPID that he never should have graduated from West Point much less made four star general, OR, 2) this is all a staged event to give him an excuse to resign so he wouldn't have to testify about the debacle at Benghazi.

Both the FBI & the CIA know (and do) plenty of things we never hear about...

Checking one woman's e-mail after another woman complains would take very little time. Once they realized that this woman was Petraeus's official biographer (so they had a legitimate reason to be exchanging e-mails) - it should have stopped. Presuming they had a legitimate reason to then hack into his e-mails, once they realized that no criminal activity had occurred, it should have stopped...

There was no whistle blower in this case....There was no reason we ever should have found out about this. I agree - This is not about an affair.

I agree something doesent add up. That this whole thing startet when she was in Afganistan while he was still a general then gets vetted to become CIA chief.They know everything about you, to much at stake.Which means that they new,which would give the powers that be a hammer to hold over his head for when they needed it. Hammer didnt work for bengazi deal so they spill the beans. SO if any merit to this theory it will be interesting to see if da general uses the samson option.

Here's the most recent update (23 minutes ago) - The FBI had to investigate b/c they were using GMail...

FBI Probe Uncovering Petraeus Affair Followed Complaints

Concerned after discovering correspondence because of an earlier Chinese hack into the Google Inc. e-mail service, which the McAfee Internet security company dubbed “Operation Aurora,” the FBI was investigating whether Petraeus’s private or CIA e-mail accounts had been compromised, the official said.

They so far have found no evidence of a security breach, any loss of classified material or any evidence that another foreign power was aware of Petraeus’s infidelity, which the official said could have exposed him to blackmail.

The AP Story that is source of latest WaPo Blog Post

....Concerned that the emails he exchanged with Broadwell raised the possibility of a security breach, the FBI brought the matter up with Petraeus directly, according to the official. The FBI approached the CIA director because his emails in the matter were in most instances sent from a personal account, not CIA account...

House intelligence committee chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., and ranking member Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., will meet Wednesday with FBI deputy director Sean Joyce, and CIA acting director Michael Morell to ask questions, including how the investigation came about...

CIA officers long had expressed concern about Broadwell's unprecedented access to the director. She frequently visited the spy agency's headquarters in Langley, Va., to meet Petraeus in his office, accompanied him on his punishing morning runs around the CIA grounds and often attended public functions as his guest...

As a military intelligence officer in the Army Reserve, Broadwell had a high security clearance...

Petraeus' staff in Afghanistan similarly had been concerned about the time Broadwell spent with their boss on her multiple reporting visits to the war zone. Following standard military procedure with senior officers, they almost always had another staffer present when she met with him at his headquarters, though they did have some meetings alone. Military officers close to him insist the affair did not begin when he was in uniform....

Congressional officials say Petraeus' deputy, Michael Morell, will testify instead, as acting director of the CIA.

It's a good way for a secret agent to deliver messages to someone like Stephens, who could have been the master gunrunner for the mideast.

Another interesting tidbit from the article....

All the explicit e-mails were from his personal e-mail account (home computer)...Not even his gov't issued PC....

So, there wasn't even a "misuse of gov't assets"

Hacking into his home computer to see if he had been "spoofed"

And the alleged "spoofing" wasn't a business opportunity from the CIA Director or even Penis pills from Petraeus...

It involved a series of explicit e-mails sent between Petraeus & his official biographer... Someone he had a legitimate reason to contact....

They were really going after this guy...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27394300


Is that a joke? I'm bad at detecting sarcasm, which is really ironic b/c I am extremely sarcastic...

Just in case you weren't joking -

Two US compounds were attacked that night...The CIA station and the US Consulate. There is no legal definition for the term consulate. It is an ancillary diplomatic mission (not the official embassy).

Before the NTC (Libyan Rebel Gov't) officially moved to Tripoli (from Benghazi), in October 2011, the US maintained a special mission to the NTC in Benghazi. It wasn't called an embassy (even after we recognized the NTC).

There were numerous security issues in Tripoli after the official move, so the NTC leadership often stayed in Benghazi... For this reason, the US needed to keep a diplomatic facility (call it whatever)....

The idea that Benghazi was safer than Tripoli was shattered when protesters stormed the NTC headquarters (and looted it) while acting NTC President MAJ (Mustafa Jalil) was trapped in the building. There are pictures of him looking out a window scared sh*tless as protestors/looters stormed the grounds. I heard the leadership hung out in Turkey for awhile after that...they were out of sight for a few weeks.

When they came back they were in Tripoli. Their offices and the new Libyan legislature (the GNC) are stormed weekly.

There is a good chance that Libya will split into several countries. If that is the case, the first new country, Barqa, will have Benghazi as its capital. So, it's - good idea to keep a Benghazi mission open...

Sorry to digress. I just wanted to say whatever you call it, there has been a need for a diplomatic office in Benghazi for the last almost two years now...

BUT the part about the CIA supplying weapons and fighters to Syria is correct.

cover up. he's under investigation for a botched military coup against Obama and had to resign to keep the scandal out of the public eye. the first stage of the coup was to frame bengahzi screw up on Obama, then nail him with an impeachable offense after the election. several high ranking officers including petraeus were involved but the feds figured it out before it was fully executed. this is why the Obama/bengahzi scandal has faded from the MSM or specifically Fox news who was also in on it. if it was real they would never have dropped it that easily and would now be all over the other networks.

snip



The collapse of the dazzling career of CIA Director David H. Petraeus was triggered when a woman with whom he was having an affair sent threatening e-mails to another woman close to him, according to three senior law enforcement officials with knowledge of the episode.

The recipient of the e-mails was so frightened that she went to the FBI for protection and help tracking down the sender, according to the officials. The FBI investigation traced the threats to Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and a Petraeus biographer, and uncovered explicit e-mails between Broadwell and Petraeus, the officials said. . . .


[link to www.washingtonpost.com]
 Quoting: DarbyDoom


Why did Petraeus send Broadwell a photo of him and Jolie taken in a very secure location. He was taunting his ex-mistress, I think. So, whether Jolie and Petraeus were having an affair, Paula Broadwell could certainly have imagined it and began sending Jolie nasty emails.

The real questions are why was Angelina Jolie in Petraeus's office to begin with and why did the media print that little detail?

Just a little about Angelina Jolie from [link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

Jolie stated that she first became personally aware of worldwide humanitarian crises while filming Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) in Cambodia.[65] She contacted the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for information on international trouble spots.snip

Jolie was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador at UNHCR headquarters in Geneva on August 27, 2001.[68]

Since then, Jolie has been on field missions around the world and met with refugees and internally displaced persons in more than 30 countries snip

After more than a decade of service as Goodwill Ambassador, Jolie was promoted to the rank of Special Envoy of High Commissioner António Guterres on April 17, 2012. As Special Envoy, she represents the UNHCR and High Commissioner António Guterres at the diplomatic level and works to facilitate long-term solutions for people displaced by large-scale crises, such as Afghanistan and Somalia. "This is an exceptional position reflecting an exceptional role she has played for us," said a UNHCR spokesman


Okay, now why was she in CIA Director's office?

That the head of all the spies in the most powerful country on earth sent sexually explicit emails from his home computer says one of two things: Either 1) He is SO STOOPID that he never should have graduated from West Point much less made four star general, OR, 2) this is all a staged event to give him an excuse to resign so he wouldn't have to testify about the debacle at Benghazi. The salacious nature of the event is meant to convince us that this is genuine.

He should have never gone to work for this whitehouse slime...........I'm sure they never trusted him or any other military for that matter,..........it's obvious that this is Soviet style spy games..............incriminate them and use when necessary..........
