Petraeus’ ‘other woman’ reportedly
a married mother of two, under
FBI investigation

Daily Caller, by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/9/2012 8:30:40 PM

The woman with whom former CIA Director David Petraeus had an affair has been identified as Paula Broadwell, the co-author of a recent biography about the retired four-star general. Broadwell is currently under FBI investigation for improperly trying to access Petraeus’ emails and possibly gaining access to classified information, NBC News reported Friday, the same day Petraeus resigned from his post as director of the top U.S. intelligence agency. He cited the extramarital affair as his reason for stepping down. Holly Petraeus, the general’s wife, is employed in the Obama administration’s

Comments:
0bamaNation doing anything to subvert complete testimony of Benghazi murder investigation next week. But, being former head of CIA, what can one believe that Petraeus would say would be true?

John Batchelor on Kudlow tonight said his sources tell him that Obama and company threatened to expose the affair if Petraeus would not stick to the "video" story on his next congress appearance next week. Petraeus refused and resigned. Look for the general to come clean to the committee.

FTA: she met Petraeus in 2006 at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government when she was a student there. He offered to help her after she told him about her research interests.

How long was this going on?

I agree that the Obama regime held this affair over Petraeus' head in order for him to toe the line over this scandal. I just think they might have underestimated him. Do you wonder how he felt watching so many military ballots never delivered and votes not counted by the men and women who served under him? Just wondering if this regime's total disdain for this country and its military might have helped him come clean on his own.
If it was my husband of 37 years and I loved him, I would have told him to own this affair, come clean on your own terms and then go before the House as a civilian who no longer works for the regime.
I could be fantasizing, but I think a lot of people are fed up with the Obama machine.

What a tramp. And if you google her, all her pictures of the come-hither variety. She was on the make, selling her looks, turned on by the presence of power, stalking her guy, no better than Monica Lewinsky. Her last tweet, dated Nov. 5, showed that she was still mooning about her illicit boyfriend as late as this week.

She sold herself to the public, and Jon Stewart as this serious scholar as she was thrusting her boobs out in her halter tops. Stewart believed her, and the public never suspected just-how-well she knew Petraeus and wasn't revealing that little conflict of interest to her reading public and all the think tanks that supported her and propped her up as a serious scholar. Pardon me if I am more disgusted with her than him. Journalistic ethics are on the line and she broke them - and tried to go snooping into his email.

She is also a Major in the US Army Reserve which puts her in jeopardy of charges for violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice for adultery and Conduct Unbecoming and Officer. At the very least she will not make O-5.

I have been wondering about that possibility #1. Prior to all of this being revealed, I also have been wondering why Petraeus seemed to be covering for the administration.

Very interesting with LOTS of possibilities. Like a novel......"The Petraeus Testimony"......can´t wait to read it.

Me thinks there is A LOT MORE to this tale (did I spell that right?) A some level, I don´t think we know all the "history" (legend?) of Ms. Broadwell. And who picked that name? Ian Flemming?

The photo is of Broadwell in Petraeus´ office. How was she ever cleared to have such access? No one in the CIA is allowed to write books without a long vetting process of content. So many rules were broken by Petraeus that his own people must follow. He is an arrogant little man who deserves what he gets. He put our entire country and national security at risk and allowed himself to be blackmailed by this administration for months. God help us. Are there no good people left? Yes Romney. Look what happened to him..

#1 is right.. dont get side tracked with the affair and how awful she was or he was. I dont need to hear it. I want to know why the WH had this imformation, put the CIA at risk of whatever they can be at risk of.. and kept it quiet for MONTHS. They had this info before Sept 11th, and before any comments made by Petreaus about it. My thought is, he now has his reputation as a military man to come clean. Most will forgive an affair (as we all know), but few in government would forgive him covering for this disgraceful administration. We all know how the military think of both men.

I look for him to do what is right for the country.

He was being investigated by the FBI? Eric Holder´s FBI? Yes, of course.
.... First, I agree that the general had better watch his back, lest he commit suicide.
.... In addition, I hope he has written it all down, lest he commit suicide.

I also have to wonder if the girlfriend who betrayed him believed that she and her family would remain anonymous. Of course, it´s possible that her future is now so financially safe that a bit of scandal doesn´t matter.

Exactly poster #1 -- I was thinking along those lines....

obama´s henchmen, i.e. iranian/jarret and axelgrease, told Petraeus they had the "goods" on him and would use it "if" he didn´t back up the story....

He was honorable -- in his resignation -- but not honorable in his betrayal of his poor wife.

jarret/axelgrease aren´t happy today. She lost her scape/goat. This reminds me of the time Kathleen Wiley was threatened with the loss of her cat "if" she didn´t lie about bubba clinton...

I cannot understand why he would not be required to testify.
If anything, I would think he would insist on telling what he knows for loyalty to the men in service. Sex under a desk doesn´t necessarily put him in Clinton´s category, and he certainly doesn´t visit Chicago bath houses while married.

This has nothing to do with sex - it has everything to do with power - Patraeus had it (Benghazi truth) over zippy and his band of thugs and they threatened him.

Isn´t it amazing how much research the MSM did in such a short period of time and still we have nothing public about zippy and his "affiliations."

Thanks for the lovely picture today! Nice respite.

From another thread I posted this on - this is extremely intriguing. Note the description of the "other man" and his job description:

The word is that the second letter in the column linked below is from Broadwell´s husband, showing knowledge of the affair. More interesting is the reply from "The Ethicist" column author. Intriguing. From July of this year:

(Go to second letter down, "My Wife´s Lover")

You may be overestimating Petreus. This is a modern general, and they can play for either team. He is not where he is, liberal Princeton grad and all, without being sympathetic to the cause. That cause included understanding and enforcing loser "rules of engagement." To be entrusted with the CIA, rather than DOD, where Petreus had access to state secrets, congressmen´s secrets, secrets about Obama´s sealed documents and lifestyle, and secrets about muslim influence in government, requires a particular kind of flexible left winger. Maybe he didn´t expect the depth of treason he uncovered. given. Maybe he wanted to run for President in 2016 as a republican, rather than take a VP spot from Obama. People are giving odds on whether we will have a country in two years. This can very easily be a small opera, long time in the planning just as the Arab Spring and Benghazi seem to be, all designed to ruin a few politicians and cover some craziness in the Lame Duck session.

Monica Lewinsky was a very young intern, bedazzled by Bubba´s power and comehitherness.

This woman is a mature 40, in her own words "driven", and as ambitious as Petraeus. When she realized she had him, she used him and then tossed him.

Many of us have known women like this.

33 Labrador Heaven...where did you first see this link to bring attention to the affair...

..that was from July of 2012...some time after the affair had stopped....so was this a blackmail reminder that Pertraeus need to cooperate or he would go down as a louse...Comply or else???

Was this to silence Pertraeus regarding the missile running taking place in Benghazi at the CIA safe house under cover of destroying the ruined weapons while selling other and using Turkey as the conduit to Al Qaeda in Syria?

Those Ex Seals must have figured out what was really happening was not a recovery and destroy mission...was this a hit?

Is this a coverup of Missile running and treason???

#52, I don´t believe that letter to the NYT came from an aggrieved husband as men just don´t do that. The aggrieved husband in this affair lives in North Carolina and has no known connection to the NYT. If anyone connected to this affair sent the letter to the NYT, it was the lady who was involved, you can take that to the bank.

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

The passenger, who has not been identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn´t know how the knife got into the bag.

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
