Petraeus' biographer Paula
Broadwell under FBI investigation
over access to his email, law
enforcement officials say

NBC News, by Staff

Posted By:earlybird, 11/9/2012 6:14:11 PM

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.

An article in another publication reported that the FBI had found out about Petraeus's affair (which was said to have occurred a year ago) during the course of another investigation. This may have been that investigation.

Broadwell's Twitter account describes her as a national security analyst and Army veteran. A biography on her website says she is married to a radiologist and has two children, both boys. The family lives in Charlotte, N.C. The biography says she is a West Point graduate and a research associate at Harvard University's Center for Public Leadership and a doctoral candidate in the Department of War Studies at King's College London.

Video of her with article.

Message to Ms. Broadwell about anything she may have learned doing the biography perhaps?

All in? Too funny.

I have to wonder if this was Hillary's ultimate revenge? And will she, at great personal sacrifice, be willing to take over the CIA, to boost her credentials for 2016??

What has been unfolding since this administration took office will soon make us long nostalgically for Watergate/Fort Marcy Park/Monica combined.

FTA law enforcement officials said it is unlikley that criminal charges would be filed as a result to the FBI investigation. So why the investigation?

Watched the video of her appearance on Morning Joe and her pushup contest with Jon Stewart.

She is my nominee for "The Other Woman".

Holder's FBI? If they were told to find evidence they were going to.

And, who knows, it could even be real evidence. Does that matter in America now?

So far it sounds like a classic. Magically Petraeus won't testify, Kerry immediately decides he needn't, and this women - obviously no fool - is reminded they are watching her too.

So, Ms Broadwell was trying to access the general's email?

If I remember spycraft jargon correctly, this is called a "honey trap."

Question: Whom was Paula Broadwell working for?

Putin? Axelrod? Hillary?

Newsmax has more 'explicit' details, stating he kept pursuing her after the breakup, and sent thousands of e-mails. The Newsmax site is quite busy at the moment.

Do people at the highest levels of government really have affairs outside of marriage? I am shocked, next we will hear about politians from NJ and then the secret service....naw, only kidding.

Maybe we need an expert to find out for sure. Maybe Hillary will take the job, she has the experience.

FBI? Lemme see .. who could it be that oversees them? Could it be .. Satan? No, Eric Holder.

Someone had better get documented testimony from Petreus, Broadwell, and anyone else who may have some knowledge of what is to be suppressed - before they become "unavailable".

Here's a youtube feature of Broadwell speaking at her alma mater (U of Denver) just last month. Interestingly she is asked a question about Benghazi.

She is the mother of 2 young children. And yes, she was "embedded" with the General. Sick people.

I wonder if Petraus got the CIA job because the admin knew they could keep him in line with this little secret.

Pride goeth before the fall!

Even if Petraeus was set up for this, he voluntarily submitted. His integrity challenged.

I don't doubt Obama or Hillary could easily have placed temptation before him, yet he made the choice.

I imagine this highly regarded General wished he had retired earlier, now enjoying his retirement with the wife of his youth!

God's way is still the best way!

He needs to repent, seek restoration for his marriage. I pray for both of them that they are able to fully forgive, freely forget.

If they have children/grandchildren, may they learn to hold them closer, appreciate the blessigs God has given them.

Repentence is necessary, forgiveness is a choice that needs to be important for a lasting life together.

I pray for this man and his wife.

Power corrupts!

I also pray for the woman involved. Whatever her intentions were, she hurt and may have destroyed a long-lasting relationship through her needless need for attention!

Whoever initiated this relationship is responsible, but the follower also proves inability to stand up to temptation.

They both need God!

Pray for these people who are suffering the consequences of their actions.

Many in the media are also sinful and need to search their conscience. They just "did not" get caught!

Pray for America! This is life today, thanks to the liberals.

Bill Clinton paved the way for acceptable sinfulness now called indescretions!

God's Love/Grace ever covers all sin when we repent and seek His will/way through His Son, Jesus Christ, our only salvation!

A reminder to everyone reading this: Satan condemns - The Holy Spirit convicts! There is hope for all sinners, which we once were, but now saved, welcomed into God's eternal Kingdom.

They both need God, as do all of US!

I once heard a Christian couple on the radio talk about how the only people allowed into politics all had skeletons in their closet. They said good, clean people were seldom accepted by either party because then there´d be no way to keep control over them. Even though the couple was talking about local politics, I think they were onto something.

A Nebraska toddler had his eye on the prize when he slipped out of his home and wound up inside a claw machine at a nearby arcade. Ashley Ireland had called police and begun a frantic search for her son, Kael, after he went missing from her apartment on Monday afternoon.

Obama Lets N.S.A. Exploit

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

roundup of Bundy cattle

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

But, as savvy Twitter users noticed almost immediately, the picture is photoshopped, and not very well at that. The right side of the book case is a mirror image of the left, which poses a slight problem. A problem I like to call “disembodied finger of a child floating in air”!

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
