David Petraeus Was
Brought Down by ... Gmail

The Atlantic, by Megan Garber

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/9/2012 11:07:55 PM

While David Petraeus was still serving as a four-star general in the U.S. Army, he began exchanging emails with the woman who would eventually write his biography. After Petraeus retired from military service and accepted a new post -- director of the Central Intelligence Agency -- those email exchanges, it´s believed, turned into something else: an affair. The affair might have concluded as so many others do (Snip)were it not for the technology that helped to ignite it in the first place: email. The FBI began to suspect that Petraeus´s personal Gmail account had been hacked -- so it launched

What it is, is that the head of the CIA should probably never, ever send a gmail message to anyone about anything.

THAT is a firing offense.

What an idiot.

So Google knew that the head of the CIA was having an affair? Google? If this is true why do we even have a CIA? Google? This is very, very disturbing.

So did the Chicago Gang blackmail the Director of the CIA? Will Petraeus´s body be found under a cannon at Ft Marcy Park? Welcome to Obamaland.

The article said Google SERVERS knew about the affair. Servers don´t really know things they just retain information, forever. Who knows what else they know that is just out there waiting for some human to discover.

Something needs to be said about this guy. He was successful in Iraq thanks to the ideas of the William Lind. As a tawdry political hack is wont to do, im sure he never bothered to give proper attribution, so there you go.

email is not secure, meaning it is very easy for others to read it. Petraeus, being a CIA and military guy would have known this. I am not buying this. I think it was more a part of a made up story.

As head of the CIA Obozo threw Petraeus under the bus for not supporting the Obozo lies on Benghazi= Obozo TREASON... the affair is just a misdirection ... Three 4 star generals relieved of command by Obozo over Benghazi in the last two months .... Crap is going to hit the fan of this Obozo TREASON ..

For comparison look at impeached and liar Klintoon who had affair in the oval office with giggle brain intern half his age that worked for him .. the Obozo/Dems just luv the Klintoon pervert...

If Petraeus is dumb enough to use Gmail, he´s pretty dumb. Gmail is monitored by the Google data collector. You would think the CIA director would know this. I don´t use Gmail, but am amazed at how many people do.

This is WH Cover Story BS.

Just like the Video was a Benghazi Cover Story.

Patton, Eisenhower and many others had affairs and continued to serve. No One cares and if it was a real concern it would have been handled quietly.

This is about the WH trying to fall back on their same false narrative, using Panetta and other Political appointees to lie for them. The CIA Operations Command, which involves Petraeus and more honorable ex Military is angry about this Benghazi thing and told the facts. Panetta is now caught in the lies that Valerie Jarrett and others have spun.

This is getting really atrocious.

Obama knew and just calculated the right time to expose this man.

With friends like Obama, who needs enemies?

Everyone is expedient for Obama and his administration.

One day, in God´s plan, Obama will be seen as the man he is.

Out of Obama´s mouth - Revenge replaces Hope!

All the past Presidents are shamed by Obama.

One day God will open the eyes of America to the man too many voted for. He does not know the God he claims to profess. He will meet Him though and sadly could hear - Depart from Me, for I never knew you.

No matter what we are going through, if we believe in Jesus, He promised to give US a peace that passes all understanding and one day we will be with Him forevermore.

What doth it profit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his immortal soul!

Pray for Petraeus. I believe he was set up, but he did submit, forsaking all he valued and lost the honor due him.

Everyone is tempted by Satan. He knows our weaknesses, yet God, in His mercy, forgives and forgets when we repent/submit unto Him and allow Him to rule/reign in our hearts. I pray for this man and his family.

Sadly, the media enjoys destroying anyone they can. They forget there is also sowing and reaping and one day they may fall and there will be no one to care for them.

Ah Yes, this Petraes story is the shiny object. I agree with my fellow Ldotters. The question remains. Will the MSM continue to cover for the Chicago thugs by concentrating on the shiny object thrown out as a distraction ? Or will they follow the Benghazi story, even if it implicates the president?

Probably should´ve saved the above for the day hours of Saturday instead, but it´s too intriguing to pass up. The descriptor of the man involved alone should lead to only a few possible conclusions as to identity, and it is worded as to be quite memorable. I think he WAS writing it, for the NYT, of all papers to put certain someones or certain entities on notice.

I´ll repost it again in the later morning on another thread.

I agree with you #24. If you read the WSJ article that Megan Garber links to, you will see that Patraeus did not have a physical relationship with this woman. It makes me think back to Democrat reaction to Clinton´s Lewinsky affair (none of them worried about blackmail in that case, like they are so worried about in the Patraeus case). The entire business looks politically motivated since the WSJ article states that Patraeus was often at odds with CIA counterterrorism and he didn´t work to win over the CIA like his predecessors. Garber´s article does not explain what triggered the FBI to suspect hacking. Was it actually an internal CIA Security investigation, and if so, what triggered that?

It´s all happening at the zoo today, Easter Sunday in Sydney, where Prince George met a cute little critter named for him and the world got to see the royal baby for a second official appearance. After Easter services at the Anglican cathedral in Sydney in the morning, Prince William and Duchess Kate changed clothes, collected George and headed for the Taronga Zoo, Sydney´s harbor-side menagerie of Australia´s wonderfully quirky wildlife.

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers.

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last?

It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
