FBI Scrutinized on Petraeus
Wall Street Journal, by Evan Perez*

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/11/2012 8:24:25 PM

A State Department official´s complaints about email stalking launched the monthslong criminal inquiry that led to a woman romantically linked to former Gen. David Petraeus and to his abrupt resignation Friday as Central Intelligence Agency chief. The emails began arriving in Jill Kelley´s inbox in May, U.S. officials familiar with the probe said. A State Department political adviser for a U.S. military command in Tampa, Fla., Ms. Kelley told the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the emails, which she viewed as harassing (Snip)the trail led to what officials said were sexually explicit emails between two lovers,

Now we find out that Petraeus used a pseudonym to set up the special gmail account.

Bit by painstaking bit, this story is coming out. It has to because it is connected with Petraeus´s telling the story, under oath, of what part the CIA really played in the Benghazi debacle.

Closed Comments too soon.

This article lays out the course of the investigation in a fair amount of detail. How they traced the emals to Broadwell (even matching them to places where she was staying as she travelled). And then they confronted her. She turned over her computer; they found classified documents.

At one point Eric Holder was consulted.

The full story is in the article.

nothing like a sex scandal to distract the electorate from election fraud and benghazi..all i want to know is if it´s impeachable....did obama or his minions leak this story at the most opportune time for him?
i wouldn´t have to ask this question of a mitt romney administration.
paula broadwell certainly fits the mata hari role quite well, ms kelley is a different story. she´s quite large and masculine...but i imagine she´s just collateral damage in this mess.

This is by far the most substantive and damaging article on this subject. Key revelations:

Holder was told. Ergo, Obama certainly knew.

Her computer possessed classified documents. Ergo, this is by definition a criminal matter now, not just a messy personal drama.

And "the emails were sent from an account shared by Ms. Broadwell and her husband"?! Huh? Who the heck sends threatening emails from an account shared with the spouse?

This is getting curiouser and curiouser, and where it stops, nobody knows.

This ´investigation´ stinks. It looks like someone sent the FBI on an expensive fishing trip, for the purpose of gathering dirt on Petraeus. So what if he has twenty affairs and sixteen mistresses. Someone at the top of the FBI, or higher, wanted something on him, and this is the best they could do. Pathetic.

Why resign? There must be something more than sex that went on here. If his resignation was forced, he might still weigh in on Benghazi. If his resignation is proactive, he could just be mad that 0 & Co. were spying on him. One thing, 0bama will not be able to abuse the executive privilege like he did with the F&F investigation. He can hide documents, but Petraeus knows where the bodies are buried.

A story only a pornographer could love. Or a man raised by professional pornographers.

Time to go re-read the book of Revelation, and see why "Mighty Babylon, the mother of prostitutes and of earth´s abominations" was given so much ink.

I could never figure out how Mighty Babylon, the great harlot, could sink the earth´s great nations. That is one of the many images in the book of Revelation that I never understood. Now I begin to see the thing.

Another Boomer who thought he could do as he pleased without repercussions.

Let´s examine what WE have so far. The obama administration are liars and anti/American.

There you have all the information you will get.....

Forget Washington DC. demorats or republicans will do "nothing". There´s to much inbreeding and nepotism. The hearings will be a photo/op for all the politicians and nothing will get done.

Time to go "local".... Washington DC is lost...

No -- I am not pessimistic -- just a pragmatic woman who survived Hitler. I´ll survive this corruption....or die trying....

Not all Boomers believe we can do anything we want to, but I will give you that it does seem to ring true at times. My thought on this Petraeus story is that it is overshadowing the the deaths of four Americans that may have been preventable. This administration is master of deflection. Let´s get to the bottom of Banghazi. Those men and their families deserve it.

What surprises me is that someone with Petraeus´ background could be so stupid when it comes to e-mails. He of all people should know that there is simply no such thing as a "secure" e-mail account.

Secret accounts with a fake names might work for preteens trying to keep their private lives private from Mom and Dad but for Petraeus to think that way? That´s the part of the story that amazes me.

Look at it this way, sex scandals are not as messy as murders....especially murders of our citizens on foreign soil

Who really cares ? . When this country is in so much deep s*** and it gets deeper by the day . What I´d give for someone to come up with the dirt on the Tapeworm Reid , who has used his office to finagle land deals , taken kickbacks from casino´s and who knows how many bribes to push on-line gambling . THAT is only what is common knowledge . He obstructs any common sense bi-partisan legislation and hasn´t offered any budget ( much less balanced ) since we can remember . He held the vote on Obamacare Christmas eve so no one would be in a postion to offer ant sort of rebuttal and his presents to senators were ____ ( pick your word ) in their unConstitutionality . Now he wants to raise the debt ceiling once again and blatantly admitted his willingness to work with us is a pipe dream . No author , THIS is what I´d like to see on these pages . An expose ´ on how many real crooks are in charge of our well being , not another stupid sex number .

The ´Audacity´ from Hope, Arkansas developed this type of cover-up method.

Here´s the trick......

When you need cover for something which is truly criminal, you flood the field with something merely salacious. Then you over-flood the field with too much detail about the cover-up story and the harried reader/listener throws out the baby with the bathwater and the crime goes away as all of one piece.

It takes a Commie to think like this.

And that´s what we´ve got.

Lots of them.

So Eric Cantor and an obscure Congressman from Washington knew about this, but the President didn´t? At some point well before the election the FBI decided that criminal charges weren´t warranted. Shouldn´t Obama have been told then, if not earlier?

Meh. Why can´t I get all worked up about Petraeus and Paula the Broad? I mean, I should be in a state of hysteria about adultery, possible security breaches, the FBI (Eric Holder) spying on the CIA, etc. etc., right? But I´m not. I mean, it´s a Democrat administration, right? So, sexual irregularities, security breaches, fatal disasters abroad -- it´s all par for the course. This is what 51% of our fellow Americans like and voted for.

Has it occurred to anyone (possibly #4) that Petraeus may not have been an innocent prawn? His wife and two women he had affairs with were active, connected democrats. Paula had classified material but she said she didn´t get them from Petraeus and he said he didn´t give them to her. Apparently no one lies to the FBI. If this were a plot on TV I´d be I be throwing stuff. You need to watch more Midsomer Murders and MI-5.

This is warning to all of you, fascists, commies, collaborators! None of you is secure when it suits the party line of the "dearest leader"! Heads will roll!
Petraeus had to think of it when he accepted the post in this regime!
And reading today´s threads about voting "irregularities" I can only repeat with deepest sorrow - I was telling this for the last 5-7 years - we needed conservative mainstream media! Now we are totally and completely silenced.
Rinos for whatever reasons (stupidity, complicity or anything else) didn´t respond to the lefties gobbling media and banks and now we are yapping about election results. Didn´t we suspect it before? What did we do about it? We were watching karl rove with his white board and useless calculations? Btw, were we satisfied with his handling the situations in 2001-2008? Isn´t today´s state of the country his "achievement"? We need to chase people like him as far as possible from party which can save America! We need to accept that rinos will not do anything useful. Listen to what they are proposing right now - bigger tent! Come on!

No,no no. The Obamanites knew this before Petraeus became Cia chief, imo. that is how they got him to take that job.I was thinking that with all of Petraeus´s bon fides, why take that crummy side-lined job?.
Then when it was time to pull the rip-cord, boom! he is called and he come sin and he is out, essentially to twist in the wind. no testimony due to execyutive priviledge, and to the courts, Batman, for a long haul stall.

Plausible theory? The administration knew about this long ago and had the FBI investigate - just in case it would come in handy. Perhaps they offered to the General that they would keep it under wraps only if he kept his knowledge of the Benghazi incident under wraps. Then he resigned rather than going before the committee and lying for them. It´s the first thing that entered my mind when the story of his resignation came out.

We are to believe the info. about Petraeus was reported by the FBI & Justice at 50 PM on Election Day?!!! The timing of this, along with other unanswered questions about Benghazi, points strongly to election tampering in order to influence the outcome of the vote by keeping the public from knowing just how corrupt the 0bama Administration really is until 0bama was re-elected. The devious dems apparently used every trick in the lefties book. 0bama MAY have finagled enough votes to win the count but not the will of the people.

Are we learning the hard way that, ´power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,´ or WHAT?!!!

It is all but certain that Jill Kelley was also having sex with Petraeus. First of all, Broadwell would not have started emailing her if she didn’t know for certain that Kelley was sleeping with “her man.” And just how does a woman, Jill Kelley, who lives in North Carolina end up working in Tampa as the “social planner?” USCENTCOM in Tampa certainly had a complete staff already in place for the commander, people who like most in those positions working for the military, had been doing that job for years. I seriously doubt Jill Kelley was such a great “social planner” that Petraeus had to have her move from North Carolina to Florida because the current “social planner” wasn’t up to the task. And where exactly was Jill Kelley living while she was doing her “social planning” in Tampa? How did she afford two residences on what is surely a meager salary as “social planner” for the Commander-in-Chief USCENTCOM? Furthermore, Petraeus’ military execs, aides and valet, of which he had several, both officer and enlisted, certainly knew or strongly suspected he was having these affairs. But, as is always the case with those close to the General, a code of silence overrides everything, and I mean everything, including their duty to the country and national security—I’ve been there.

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. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

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?

AUSTIN — Documents related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency, Travis County officials say. 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.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

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.

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.

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.
