You already looked like an idiot by just going by the “it’s only an affair…” even when many headlines showed why it was a real problem.
Again - such a problem that the FBI and Justice Department decided to press exactly zerocharges. Why do you think you know more about what happened and how big of a deal it was than the FBI and Justice Department?

Also - what proof do you have that she got them from Patreus? I am guessing you have zero proof - certainly not enough proof to go against FBI and JD findings.

One of the officials said Justice Department officials were unclear on what steps to take after they concluded that there would be no charges against the CIA director or Broadwell and that there had been no breach of national security.
Quote:
The official said that Clapper has been fully briefed on the FBI investigation and has not called for his office or the CIA to conduct a follow-up probe or damage assessment — indicating that Clapper (Director FBI) does not see the case as a security threat.

IMO the people calling this story a witch hunt about a personal matter are misguided. It is simply untenable to have a four-star general, much less the Director of Central Intelligence, carrying on in a manner which makes him readily susceptible to blackmail. The fact that it appears that either Petraeus or Allen or both may have permitted access to compartmentalized, classified information also makes this far worse.
Excellent point, thank you. I am still concerned that there didn't seem to be any Judicial oversight though. It has a White Water feel to it, let's investigate for one thing then go on a completely separate track.

So stoked that some of the top leaders in the country act like an Internet troll and don't know that what happens online stays online.

What did Obama know about this clusterfuck of National Security and when did he know it?

They're saying that the FBI agent that Jill Kelley went to with the threatening emails from Paula Broadwell was himself exchanging naked photographs with Jill Kelley. He's now under investigation too.

So much weirdness about this whole affair.

The FBI agent was close to Jill Kelly, and other FBI agents were wondering why this investigation was happening, since the emails she got from Broadwell were not threatening.

The FBI agent got taken off the case (as noted above) for unprofessional behavior.

Broadwell and Petreaus were not "sending" emails, but leaving them as drafts that the other person could login to and read without actually exchanging emails (OMG, terrorist tactic!!!). Once again, shows how normal people can do to get around things.

Now another general is alleged to have issues with the original woman (Jill Kelly)

And how does the FBI get access to all this information ? 20,000+ emails/documents? Working through all of Broadwell's and Petreaus emails? All of this because Jill Kelley was friends with an FBI agent?

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

Power and/or the access to it, is a powerful aphrodisiac

Kelly was scorned by Petraeus and probably co municated some information to the original FBI agent
Was agent investigating her or having a relationship
More than likely the original FBI agent did not deliver; Kelley went over his head to the local office to file a report about Petraeus and Broadwell

This is getting to look like a really bad soap opera** Rumor has it that this is just the beginning of a rather deep rabbit hole**

BWHAHAHAHAHAHHAAH

A mistake that aired on Denver's 7 has gone viral on the internet.

On 7NEWS at 5 p.m. on Monday, the station reported on ex-CIA director David Petraeus' relationship with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.

Broadwell earned a master's degree at the University of Denver and had given a speech at an alumni event several weeks ago that may have provided insight into the early stages of their relationship.

During the broadcast, 7NEWS showed an image of Broadwell's biography of Petraeus that is called, "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus."

However, when the 7NEWS reporter went on the Internet to get an image of the book cover, the reporter mistakenly grabbed a Photoshopped image that said, "All Up In My Snatch." (View image here.)

"It was a mistake," said KMGH-TV News Director Jeff Harris.

"It was a regrettable and an embarrassing error. We are mortified this appeared during our 5 p.m. news broadcast. The editor pulled the image of the book cover from the Internet without realizing it had been doctored. We sincerely regret the error and have corrected the story to avoid any recurrence of its broadcast. We are following up internally as well to avoid a repeat of this inexcusable oversight," Harris said.

The CIA has come out and said that Broadwell was wrong about captives being held by the CIA in Benghazi. They have to since Obama signed an executive order in 2009 making it illegal............. what did Obama know about the illegal actions in Benghazi and the illegal actions by the CIA and when did he know it?

This is what I mean**** no specifics** Just compare it to other scandals, 'raise questions,' but what is supposed to have been the wrongdoing?

I agree, what exactly was the wrong doing

1. If there was wrong doign at the state department level what was it?
2. How does wrongdoing by the state department lead to an
administration cover up?
