Petraeus' biographer Paula Broadwell under FBI investigation over access to his email,
NBC ^ | 11/9/2012 | By Richard Engel

Posted on 11/09/2012 4:35:51 PM PST by tobyhill

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.

For average men, don't let it go to your head. If she's easy for you, she's easy for everyone.

For the likes of the general, if she's easy for you, she's a honey pot.

Well,,,, she’s pretty hot, but has no morals, obviously. She has a husband, and two children. Send her to my house, and I’ll interrogate her as only the world’s most pre-eminent Meta Proctologist can! I mean,,,,, it’s what I do!

I agree with you-he was threatened with exposure unless he lied to congress about Benghazi. But if he tells the truth about what happened, he will lose his retirement. The government and Obama presidency will seek revnge on him that way. He’s in a lose/lose situation. And just why did Obama pull him back from Aphganistan and put him in CIA in the first place?

The possibilities are endless here. Suppose this was Petraeus’ bluff to avoid BS closed-door hearings and out a mole. Just thinking out loud, but for the life of me, I cannot understand why Paula, her husband, MIL, et al, haven’t begun scrubbing public social media accounts.

Re. Source: NBC? Don’t buy it.

They can demote him and mess with his retirement. He can write a book and make the money to replace his retirement. But I think it would devastate him personally. I just hope he remains the man of integrity that I believe he is, his infidelity notwithstanding.

Let me ask everyone just ONE question ...

"Who" runs the United States Dept. of Justice and the FBI ?

hmmmmmmm ...

Eric "Protect Our New Black Panters" Holder.

Therefore ... "any" activities or investigations by the FBI are ABSOLUTELY politically suspect.

Krauthammer in video says that this sex scandal will definitely spark interest from the media! Even though Krauthammer is very convincing I think he is naive.

What do you think?

Here is what happened. 9-11 Benghazi attack. 9-12 Libyan CIA chief reports the attack was terrorism. 9-13 FBI and National Security rep. testified to House - attack was due to terrorist attack. 9-15 Petraeus give briefing to House committee which said it was due to a video -described as a useless briefing. House members were incredulous about Petraeus. In other words it was out of character for a man as accomplished as Petraeus would say this.

It seems to me Petraeus was being blackmailed..for sure...but he was being blackmailed by President Obama. That is the only thing which makes sense. It fits the circumstances and the necessary narrative for Obama.

Looks like he did actually betray us after all.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The Obama style of fascism is to create crisis and introduce instability into the camps of one’s political enemies. You can see this as Obama still struggles for absolute power within the democrat party, and BTW, he is no democrat, he is a fascist according to the established tests of history ( )

Now the left is eating their own , the death of Stevens in Benghazi, a supposedly gay leftist who was funneling arms to Libyan freedom fighters ( in truth who are mujahadeen jihadists), has brought on a series of purges over the execution of various duties in Obama’s cabinet, and damage and injury to various colleagues, among whom ordinary citizens are not counted, only fellow leftists.

So the cycle of a dictatorship is to seek lines of socioeconomic fracture, the fault lines of society, pursue them according to stated policies, initiated scandal and crisis and them purge those who do not make the grade as A TEAM fascists, those who are not loyal enough to el Duce Obama , for example, or those who have to be sacrificed when el Duce Obama’s schemes fall through.

Now Clinton, Holder, Petraeus, and various military leaders are coming under the axe , having failed in their loyalty tests , or in their execution of thug duties behind the scenes.Its very much as if the mafia has taken over the government. This is standard fair in any society in which fascism has taken power, they work immediately at entrenchment and consolidation of power. Governance becomes a mask, a bed of camouflage to cover what is going on underneath.

It is laughable to see the left recite infidelity and breaking marital vows as condemning Petraeus. They could care less about it in fact. They want a public reason to be rid of a man whop would reveal the genuine agenda of the Obama fascist administration in Libya.Petraeus was given a way out, or alternatively he would have been executed by the fascists who now are in contol of our nation.

Obama was caught with his pants down in Benghazi, and the good general was about to sing like a canary.He has been given his walking papers under threat of death IMHO.That's how fascism works.

What we see now are peaceful liberal fascist purges. Next watch as democrats and leftists begin to disappear, have accidents, or who are executed outright.Traditional conservatives are not in disarray,BUT THEY must be ready to fight under a common definition of the fascist enemy we now face, many are still in denial, and as it was in every case in history,the fascists task now is that conservatives must be re-educated, or conquered socio-economically, before these fascists can take full dictatorial power here in our formerly free nation. Conservatives stand in Obama's way.They must be destroyed at all costs by any means possible. The numbers show that the election was rigged nationally, and now the fascists have succeeded in consolidating power.This is about destroying conservatives now.It is why the Tea Party must NOT disband or cease its work.

Obama is ready to start dropping his mask and we will see more of the fascist face of the regime that pretends to govern a free people.In fact they want to destroy America before reconstructing it as a dictatorship which has a surface image of freedom and democracy, when in fact it is a fascist state using Utopian ideals to subjugate a hitherto free people.

Now the economic destruction of America and the destruction of the entrepreneurial small business owners of America begins in earnest. Trillions more will be borrowed and crisis after crisis will occur until we accept dictatorship as a necessary mechanism to cope with the various machinations brought upon a fearful, insecure, economically poor America by these fascist thugs themselves. But the fascist will continue to live like Lords, and they will create a new class of fascist mandarins in government, who will be the new affluent class intended to replace the fast disappearing entrepreneurial class of our country.

Thats all hope and change. And America voted for it.

Here is todays face of the Republican party, a face of those who could have saved us, if they would have accepted the fact that our nations is threatened by fascism.This is the face of GOP which now enables and empowers fascism in our country:


We all should urge Petraeus to testify on Benghazi with the House Oversight Committee.It is crucial to unmasking the fascist Obama administration.Impeachment of Obama must commence forthwith.

Obama is about to beat America like a drum, after he consolidates his liberal fascist power, and perfects his rule by executive order, and its enforcement.The courts are cowed by Obama, Congress is cowed by Obama, and he now has free rein. This is when the knives come out, and Obama has drawn his in earnest, getting the drop on everyone.
