Petraeus' biographer Paula
Broadwell under FBI investigation
over access to his email, law
enforcement officials say

NBC News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/9/2012 6:14:11 PM

The biographer for resigning CIA Director David Petraeus is under FBI investigation for improperly trying to access his email and possibly gaining access to classified information, law enforcement officials told NBC News on Friday. Paula Broadwell is the author of Petraeus' biography, "All In." She had extensive access to Petraeus in Afghanistan and has given numerous television interviews speaking about him. Petraeus resigned Friday, citing an extramarital affair. The woman involved was not identified.

An article in another publication reported that the FBI had found out about Petraeus's affair (which was said to have occurred a year ago) during the course of another investigation. This may have been that investigation.

FTA:

Broadwell's Twitter account describes her as a national security analyst and Army veteran. A biography on her website says she is married to a radiologist and has two children, both boys. The family lives in Charlotte, N.C. The biography says she is a West Point graduate and a research associate at Harvard University's Center for Public Leadership and a doctoral candidate in the Department of War Studies at King's College London.

All in? Too funny.

I have to wonder if this was Hillary's ultimate revenge? And will she, at great personal sacrifice, be willing to take over the CIA, to boost her credentials for 2016??

Holder's FBI? If they were told to find evidence they were going to.

And, who knows, it could even be real evidence. Does that matter in America now?

So far it sounds like a classic. Magically Petraeus won't testify, Kerry immediately decides he needn't, and this women - obviously no fool - is reminded they are watching her too.

So, Ms Broadwell was trying to access the general's email?

If I remember spycraft jargon correctly, this is called a "honey trap."

Do people at the highest levels of government really have affairs outside of marriage? I am shocked, next we will hear about politians from NJ and then the secret service....naw, only kidding.

Maybe we need an expert to find out for sure. Maybe Hillary will take the job, she has the experience.

Here's a youtube feature of Broadwell speaking at her alma mater (U of Denver) just last month. Interestingly she is asked a question about Benghazi.

She is the mother of 2 young children. And yes, she was "embedded" with the General. Sick people.

I wonder if Petraus got the CIA job because the admin knew they could keep him in line with this little secret.

Pride goeth before the fall!

Even if Petraeus was set up for this, he voluntarily submitted. His integrity challenged.

I don't doubt Obama or Hillary could easily have placed temptation before him, yet he made the choice.

I imagine this highly regarded General wished he had retired earlier, now enjoying his retirement with the wife of his youth!

God's way is still the best way!

He needs to repent, seek restoration for his marriage. I pray for both of them that they are able to fully forgive, freely forget.

If they have children/grandchildren, may they learn to hold them closer, appreciate the blessigs God has given them.

Repentence is necessary, forgiveness is a choice that needs to be important for a lasting life together.

I pray for this man and his wife.

Power corrupts!

I also pray for the woman involved. Whatever her intentions were, she hurt and may have destroyed a long-lasting relationship through her needless need for attention!

Whoever initiated this relationship is responsible, but the follower also proves inability to stand up to temptation.

They both need God!

Pray for these people who are suffering the consequences of their actions.

Many in the media are also sinful and need to search their conscience. They just "did not" get caught!

Pray for America! This is life today, thanks to the liberals.

Bill Clinton paved the way for acceptable sinfulness now called indescretions!

God's Love/Grace ever covers all sin when we repent and seek His will/way through His Son, Jesus Christ, our only salvation!

A reminder to everyone reading this: Satan condemns - The Holy Spirit convicts! There is hope for all sinners, which we once were, but now saved, welcomed into God's eternal Kingdom.

They both need God, as do all of US!

I once heard a Christian couple on the radio talk about how the only people allowed into politics all had skeletons in their closet. They said good, clean people were seldom accepted by either party because then there´d be no way to keep control over them. Even though the couple was talking about local politics, I think they were onto something.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
