full title.....Revealed: Petraeus 'flew his biographer mistress to Paris on taxpayer funded trip after being named CIA chief' David Petraeus took his mistress with him on a government-funded trip to Paris after he was named director of the Central Intelligence Agency, it was claimed today.

~~SNIP~~

Buzzfeed also reports that Petraeus's unofficial press agent, Tom Ricks, helped Broadwell score a literary agent, a publisher and a six-figure deal for her biography.

Broadwell isn't the only biographer of Petraeus's who has gotten special treatment from him.

I hope he tries to make amends by coming clean about Benghazi, Obama and Hillary.

They are trying to destroy his creditability for upcoming testimony or a future political run.

"Generals get a lot of perks."

By the time this is over, Petraeus will be lucky to score a Cialis endorsement.

The only two things that are important here are 1) was national security compromised in any way? Somehow my gut tells me that it wasn't but I surely could be wrong.And 2) what steps,if any,were taken to keep this quiet until after the election in order to keep Benghazi-gate out of the campaign?

The House needs to get him before them...give him fully immunity if needed...and demand that he give a minute-by-minute timeline of the CIA's involvement (or lack of involvement) in the terrorist attack in Benghazi.

She had classified documents on her computer. The FBI has questioned them both about this - she says the source is not Petraeus, he says he isn’t the source. SO - who is?

He needs to be subpoenaed and given conditional immunity with assurances his pension and benefits are not at risk and that there will be no questions about extramarital affairs.

Whore of Babylon seems a good title for a book.

Obsession II. Possessive mistress - can’t share what doesn’t belong to her.

Now all we have to hear is how one or both of her children are his. If so, he may need a job as he has to take care of the family.

Since Petraeus doesn’t have his priorities straight in his home life, may a light go off and he decide to make our country THE priority.

BROADwell? If it happened “under the desk” then we should be calling BLOWEDwell.

If Penelope Cruz were the general's biographer I maybe kinda sorta would be on the edge of understanding this. But that tart of his looks more like Secretariat.

Just remember, Obozo and Hildabeast need a fall guy so they continue with their hellish careers. They really want this bad. Remember it is those two responsible for the murders of 4 Americans.

And how can I get one?

By exploiting this story about a juicy sexual affair, the MSM and certain factions within Washington have also brilliantly supplanted prior escalating criticisms and suspicions about the election’s results.

Mainly so that when we, the citizens, demand answers to questions concerning Obama’s “win”, our cries will be engulfed and drowned under the waves of this big story. You know... the same as always. :-(

Well, you may be right. All I hear on the news all day long is Patraeus, Patraeus, Patraeus...

Before the lection, when a US senator was found to have origes with south american prostitutes, I heard not a damn thing.

I do not care who Patraeus had sex with at all. I do not care if she sent emails to other conquests, I do not care if she is in fact a Glenn Close psycho type.

I want this general under oath about Benghazi right now.
