Embedded: Petraeus Was Screwing His Biographer; Claim Made She Was Trying to Access His Emails

One way to get the inside story.

The woman with whom Gen. David Petraeus was having an affair is Paula Broadwell, the author of a recent hagiographic book about him, All In: The Education of General David Petraeus.

Petraeus resigned as CIA director on Friday, citing the affair.

A tweet from "Breaking News" (no idea who this is) says:

Breaking News ‏@BreakingNews

FBI investigating Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell for improperly trying to access his email, officials tell @NBCNews

So, is she hot?

Ehhh... Got somethin'.

Here she is, talking about her book about Petraeus, called, yes, All In.

You know, if you watch that interview, she does actually sound like she's having sex with him. It's a very "we did this, we did that" sort of thing. She sounds like she's talking about her boyfriend.

Corrected: I changed the email thing to a "claim," and dropped the claim that she was trying to get into his classified email.

The claim doesn't even say that.

However, given that he's head of the CIA, all of his email would be classified, it seems to me.

More: Apparently she is suspected of attempting to access classified emails.

Like I said, I assume all of his emails are classified.

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.

But they say they do not expect the investigation to end in criminal charges.

Huh?

6 Astonishing. If true, and if he's still subject to the UCMJ, he needs to get the max sentence possible. We (used to) throw people out just for being gay so when a 4 star general, who heads the CIA, does this, his head needs to hang on the wall. IF true.

17 From ThisAintHell

The timing is a little odd, especially in light of the rumors that Secretary of Defense Leon Paneta is tired of flying at taxpayer expense every weekend to his California home and plans on resigning, and Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State is resigning. My only question is which job John Kerry plans on filling since he’s been leaning towards all three jobs over the past four years.

But no, in this case he spews his mea culpa all over his resignation. Why?

There are people who latch onto slightly improbable things and inflate them. Like five people end up in court who don't know each other but had the same third-grade teacher.

But there are also improbable coincidences, like someone resigning from heading an agency intimately tied into a major government clusterfuck days before hearings for a completely unrelated reason but in a way that discredits or prevents testimony.

119 I actually met her several months back. She lives in Charlotte -- has a kid I think. She seemed smart and nice. She was attractive in a professorial kind of way.
There were some things she said at her book signingthat in retrospect kind of give away that there might have been something going on. The way she described him, it was kind of like how someone describes a person they have a crush on. She was a little too proud of him. Eh, its hard to describe and I may be imagining it in retrospect.

Wierdly (well at least in looking back at it now)her husband came to the book signing.

123 This could be to discredit him, but the timing could be just due to the FBI detecting that she'd accessed his emails, then they investigate, then the affair becomes known by people, then he decides he has to resign.

The affair happened when Petraeus was in Afghanistan?

She is married too.
Or, at least she wasin Jan 2012, when thatvideo above was made.

Since the story broke...I have been wondering:
"When did the affair happen?"

Because you can bet that Barky's spies knew about it.
[Or even helped engineer it to happen.]
And if it happened before he was made CIA Director...then it was 'baked in the cake', that they had something on him in order to control him.

Broadwell has an extensive background in counterterrorism (allegedly) and is a veteran and a West Point grad.

However, Petraeus continued to pursue her, sending her thousands of emails over the last several months, raising even more questions about his judgment."

You take people far from home, away from loved ones for long periods of time, add mountains of stress and restrictions to base in the middle of some shithole and stuff happens.

The primary difference being, these all exist on entirely separate networks and on physically different computers in order to keep everything separate and compartmentalized.

If she had/was given physical access to his classified platforms (so to speak), and was trying to break into his email from there, then he was criminally negligent and she's an reckless idiot. Being the CIA director, his, eh, hardware, wouldn't necessarily be in a secure facility at all times. She may have even had access to a system he had just used and walked away from/fell asleep next to before it locked itself.

316 For everybody thinking Petraeus will now spill the beans about the Obama Benghazi coverup:

This is a guy who had an cheap affair while he was fighting a desperate war, and then when his girlfriend dumped him he obsessively pursued her like a fifteen-year-old.

I'd say the odds of him exposing anything are zero. The CIA timeline he released was total ass-covering, and now that he's resigned in disgrace he has to salvage something.

My bet is he says the CIA and Obama did everything they could, and Obama showed incredible support, courage, and coolness.

I learned this the hard way in my fifty years: Almost everybody has a price. Almost everybody will sell out for money, fame, power, access, adulation, praise, sex, or a combination of all of the above.

I'm not putting my hopes in Petraeus. I predict Issa will pursue Benghazigate for a while, and then it'll go away.

The good news (which is actually bad news) is that Obama is so drunk with power now and so arrogant he's going to make some catastrophic error that not even the media will be able to protect him from. What's most likely is that he'll pursue through executive orders the most draconian, punitive regulatory agenda in the western world.

That'll wake people up.

You accept that, I don't. It's a fucking felony and we should have jails full of these assholes, but the left thinks it's their birthright and the right concedes to preserve comity.

We have no idea how much there is because the handful of prosecutions we get are perfunctory or dropped.

Put the fear of God Almighty into some of these functionaries and get them to testify. People being bused from district to district or across state lines is not a one-man operation, 75 judges getting thrown out of districts in PA that happens to have ungodly high turnout numbers is not a one-man operation.

But no, a few people scream, a lot of people tut-tut, and nothing will be done.

Why do so few people give a damn? This isn't just felonious, it's treasonous.

332 It is NOT blackmail.

In the law they call this "impeaching the witness". You try and discredit the witness in some way in order to undermine their credibility.


Hubby found messages on her computer and reported it. FBI looked through his emails and confirmed affair. She tells hubby she broke it off and he is still emailing her.

Admin knows all this and sits on it. Then Benghazi happens. Patraeus starts leaking to the press, but only Fox goes with it.

They do not want to draw attention to Benghazi before the election. They sit on it until after the election.

Then they demand his resignation, tell him what to write. They get rid of him, he won't testify. Even if he testifies or tries to leak to the press, the administration strikes first.

They leak to Slate and NBC (both VERY friendly to the administration) details of the affair and emails in an attempt to make him sound like an unstable nutter. He is no good as a witness now. Now he is a liar with terrible judgement, and no one will believe him.

It is not blackmail, they are impeaching the witness. Doing a nice job too.

378 Under the Uniform: The David Petraeus Story

Posted by: T. Hunter at November 09, 2012 06:45 PM (EZl54)

379 Remember Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who was at the end of his rope having to abide by "Obama's" insane Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan.

He was taken down by a "biographer" as well. Remember the Rolling Stone reporter that leaked McChrystal's off the record insults to the White House. That Rolling Stone reporter was sent there by the White House, and McChrystal orederd to give the interviews.

Remember Al Gore? He was all over the place until Obama appeared on the scene. Then he had that little incident with the masseuse in his hotel room. Don't see him too much anymore do you?

John Edwards? He was the chief rival to Obama in the Democratic Party after Hillary. We know what happened to him.

This list goes on and on. Are people ready to stop pretending we live in the stable, wholesome United States that we grew up in?

383 I'm not going to say one thing about the woman with whom he was
sleeping. How fucking stupid do you have to be as the Director of the
CIA to have an affair? Did he answer yes to the are you cheating on your
spouse question for his security clearance?


In 1992 I applied for a job at the CIA. It was pretty exciting. They told me it would be a two-stage process. The first stage was attending a fake conference at a hotel in San Francisco. They had a sign outside the room identifying it as the meeting place for a nonexistent corporation. Very cloak-and-dagger.

The guy who did the briefing looked and sounded exactly like Tim Reid of the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati. My girlfriend applied, too. We were both multilingual, had lived overseas most of our lives, and were knowledgeable about military history and geopolitics.

What made it all real was that there was a big board at the front of the room that showed the four directorates of the CIA: Intelligence, Support, Science and Technology, and Operations (now known as Clandestine Services).

Three of the directorates had full descriptions of their duties, but Operations was blank. "You don't get to learn about Operations until after you're a part of the Company," Tim Reid said.

We made it through the first interview but voluntarily screened ourselves out because the CIA doesn't take recovering alcoholics. Before we learned this, they told us that the next step would be to fly us to Langley to give us a two-day lie-detector examination.

That was just for twerpy applicants like me, but it was 1992. Though you'd think they'd have a better screening process for the head of the CIA, it could be more evidence of how corrupt and rotten all our institutions have become. It's no longer 1992, is it?

We've been worse off before, so I have no doubt we'll improve. But we're in for some very rough times, I think.

I once applied for a job in one of the military's intelligence services. I was told that I didn't have to answer the question "Were you ever a member of a Communist group?". Knew right then and there that the US I wanted to serve was no longer in existence. This was during the 2nd Clinton administration.Amazing how, while all good Americans were out creating wealth and growing the economy, the scum of our society rose to the top of our political system.

TFG is just lucky. First, Sandy/Christie providing him the perfect pre election photo-op. Now this. I fear Libya is dead now. The media will never pay attention. Sex is just sexier. No wonder Obama graciously accepted his resignation. Could this week get any more shitty? Yes it can!

The WH had to know about this pre-election and sat on it until The Won was safely heading for a second coronation. It's just amazing that it's only taken 14 years to go from "it's no big deal, it's just about sex" to "HOLY SHIT SECURITY RISK BURN HIM AT THE STAKE!!111!"

No. His e-mails are not all classified.

There is the NIPRNET for unclassified e-mail.

There is the SIPRNET for classified up to secret e-mail.

There is JWICS for classified up to Top Secret and SCI.

It is up to Petraeus to use the appropriate system depending on what he is e-mailing.

redeem yourself and testify in open public about what you knew and when you knew it, then go die alone and un-mourned you sad disgrace to the uniform you wore and all the people that looked up to you as a hero and the troops that looked to you as a role model.

you are disgrace to the uniform, the offices you held and the country you were supposed to serve. it's expected that Pvt Snuffy will think with the wrong brain, but you? fuck you, you pathetic scumbag. the idiots in Code Pink have more honor than you've displayed here. they may be stupid and wrong, but you are just pathetic.

So maybe she's only "meh hot", but she was (a) there, and (b) not in the chain of command. That gave her "a leg up" and maybe a "leg over" the other American females in Camelstan.

419 For a military-security oriented blogger, Ace sure is sloppy with his constant OTT and defamatory mistakes he's always having to correct.

Look, Ace: if this was not your blog -- or Malkin's blog or a Koch blog or whoever's dick you service to keep this gig -- and had a reason to do security sweeps, and your sweeper crew found all sorts of 'requests' coming into one of your email portals for access to dump a 'personal' message, yeah, if I'm with your sweeper crew, I'm asking you all about that, and if I don't like your answer cuz it doesn't fit some of the Inside Baseball in your message exchanges, I'm absolutely going Sherlock on your ass.

Add to that that as a government sweepster I am MAN DATED to write a report that gets to the Inspector General. That, Ace, is post-Church Commission CIA 101, and you, Ace, either know that and are a lying POS about the way this all works, or DON'T know that and are lying POS that you know anything at all about security procedures.

That is all, buck private Ace: step out of line and drop and give us all 10,000 situps before we drag you to the stockade for repeated serial confibulation.

423 If she says it's all a lie then she will be charged. Anyone who thinks Petraeus isn't an inside man is naive. You don't get his kind of jobs without being politically reliable. He threw her under the bus to protect the agenda. His pride wouldn't let him throw himself under the bus. Petraeus will be punished the same way Poindexter was.

426 Occams Razor-
dont give the Chicago scumbags any more credit for competence that they dont deserve, by wasting time with conspiracy theories-

we know why he did it- and we've all done it-
"thinking with the little head"

his reputation for brilliance is lost,
if reports about how everyone at CIA knew about it,
if he thought he could get away with it.

the shame of it is he wont testify about Benghazi - and if so,
the dishonor is in leaving the truth behind,
and if that dishonors the fallen, then thats truly despicable.

but I am sure theres more to this story yet to unfold...

427 Here's a couple of interesting questions:

Isn't she a married mother of two? What did her husband know and how much? Was he even aware she was blowing Petraeus?

Isn't it ironic that she was cheating on her husband with Petraeus knowing full well Petraeus was a married man? How dare she Petraeus of cheating on her when she's only his mistress lol?
