Probe eyes any Petraeus staff role in
Broadwell obtaining sensitive documents

Washington Post, by Carol D. Leonnig*

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/22/2012 6:06:32 PM

A federal investigation of how David H. Petraeus’s biographer obtained numerous classified records is focusing on whether the retired general’s staff gave her sensitive documents at his instruction, according to federal officials familiar with the inquiry. Petraeus aides and other high-ranking military officials were often tasked by Petraeus and other top commanders to provide military records and other documents to Paula Broadwell for her work as Petraeus’s biographer, former staff members and other officials told The Washington Post. Broadwell, a married Army reservist,

It´s obvious that 0bama wants to pin Benghazigate on Petreaus. But, it is also starting to look like they are setting him up to be the villain for all administration leaks.

This woman was so ballsy, it wouldn´t surprise me if she just walked in and demanded the documents. As an intelligence officer, she had security clearance to view them. She just wasn´t supposed to take them away in any form. (Maybe Carol missed the report about her security clearance?)

Brings back memories: could the military have changed that much since I was in the Navy 40-odd years ago?

Back then each classified pub was clearly marked as such and had it´s own ID number; it was stored in a special security file cabinet/safe, and anyone with both the clearance and need-to-know had to sign them out and get a receipt when they returned them. If a document was overdue or missing, we knew who had signed it out. Xerox copiers were not common then.

Pubs were periodically inventoried by 2 officers together, who had to certify the results of their survey. Once (when I was in charge of secured pubs) I did have problems with my commanding officer, who refused to sign for anything, because back then losing a firearm or a classified document was career-ending; his solution to avoiding that pitfall was to not sign them out. I had to spend a lot of idle time in his office while he read documents... seemed stupid then and still does, but I wasn´t going to stake my own commission on whether or not he misplaced a pub (he was a jerk, to put it kindly).

To me,this all looks ike an accumulation of blackmail pressure to keep Broadwell from singing like a canary on how corrupt Obama´s foreign policy is. Of course if they had their dreathers,she´d drown accidentally while swimming in the Potomac River at 1 am.

As i said before I don´t approve of some of Broadwell´s behavior but until there´s signs she´s a traitor or sold info to foreign agents,I´m giving her the benefit of the doubt. I think she´s a very patriotic American as of right now.

The big effort to discredit her has to do with her saying the CIA had a secret overseas prison,something the left railed against Bush for years.On top of that Obama signed an exe. ordering banning them, This would be huge hypocrisy on the left if her assertions are true and guess what,I believe her.

Having a security clearance is not enough to get access. You are also required to have a ´need to know.´

I worked in a facility where we had 150 documents that had to be inventoried twice each day. And we changed the safe combinations at least once each month.

I tend to agree w/ #5. I think Paula may have been "bi-partisan" (military people try to be because they frequently have to take orders from whatever civilians are voted in to the top offices) enough to not believe that the Obama administration might be malevolent enough to use her as a scapegoat for any number of things. She may have known about Kelley´s connections to the Islamists and in an attempt to protect Petraeus and the military, tried to warn Kelley to keep away. I think her efforts were inept and the administration is willing to not "let a crisis go to waste, using her to misdirect the press away from the truth of Benghazi. Just as they let the apparently very competent FBI agent be portrayed as lusting after Kelley, characterizing what was obviously a joke photo as a "naked photo" (a la Anthony Weiner), they have portrayed Broadwell as just one rabbit away from a "Fatal Attraction" moment. They are also portraying Jill Kelley as an airhead, when she is smart enough to have been in medical school at one point. Any financial professional can probably tell you that many doctors are not very good at managing all the money they make and in downturns (especially in real esate) are very likely to be among those needing the bankruptcy courts. This is apparently what has happened to Kelley´s husband, the surgeon.

#11 - anyone who comports herself as does Mrs Kelly is highly unlikely to be sympathetic to "the Ismalists."

Now I can rest - the story is complete and the movie will come out soon. First Gloria Allred came to advocate for Jill Kelley´s sister, Natalie K(not a Kardashian). Now we learn that Dee Dee Myers (Clinton´s first Press Secretary) is Paula Broadwell´s "spokeswoman".

Ah yes, the intrigue is now complete. These last few years are just a trashy fiction novelette (a novel that is regarded as being slight, trivial, or sentimental). Lord, don´t I wish! At least one can throw a trashy novelette in the garbage - if only we could do the same thing with anything and everything Obama!

Why Obama Can´t Explain Himself

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan. "I´ve been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day." Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia. Even though the Obamacare plan she purchased assured her that she was covered, her insurance card was denied when she went to fill her prescriptions. Then she learned that none of her

An ex-Arizona sheriff and supporter of Cliven Bundy spoke out to defend the Nevada rancher in a radio interview this week, flagged by Right Wing Watch, and he compared Bundy to Rosa Parks while decrying federal authorities for exhibiting Nazi-like tactics by saying they’re just following orders. Richard Mack told radio host Steve Deace that Bundy took a stand against the government “trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks” and said this moment is exactly like “Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.” When Deace brought up the “just following orders” justification that

Is Putin’s Next Move to
Take Over Odessa?
Daily Beast, by Josh Rogin and Eli Lake    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/17/2014 7:59:21 AM     Post Reply
Crimea is in Moscow’s hands. Some of Kiev’s army has surrendered parts of eastern Ukraine without a fight. And now there are signs that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have picked his next targets: First a small breakaway state in Moldova, west of Ukraine, where thousands of Moscow’s troops are already stationed; then its close neighbor Odessa, Ukraine’s third-largest city and its largest remaining port, where pro-Russian and pro-government groups are tangling. If forces loyal to Putin can successfully disrupt Odessa, it could effectively cut the county of Ukraine in two.

Ten Welfare-Reform Lessons
National Review Online, by Robert Doar    Original Article

New York City’s welfare system is managed out of a boxy 25-story office building on Water Street in Lower Manhattan. Approximately 5,000 employees work there, directing government programs that provide billions of dollars of taxpayer-funded assistance to the poor and near-poor. A solid majority of the workers at 180 Water Street are African-American or Latino; their voter registration is almost certainly overwhelmingly Democratic; and all but about 300 of them are union members. But from 1995 until this past December, the people who worked in New York’s principal social-services agency were leading one of the most conservative and successful welfare

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin, who repeatedly denied Russian troops had entered Crimea before the March referendum there, changed his version of those events Thursday, telling the nation that they had indeed been there all along. But the green-uniformed men observed in eastern Ukraine right now, storming buildings and raising the Russian flag, are not Russian, he said. “Those are local residents,” he said

The first suspected Heartbleed hacker is a 19-year-old kid with a faint mustache, short black hair, and a disposition that’s so diffident his lawyer often refers to him as “a nerd, a stereotypical computer geek.” But he’s a computer geek, his lawyer says, with a history of hacking. On Wednesday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced the arrest of Stephen Solis-Reyes, which the agency said went down “without incident.” Accusing the Ontario man of the “malicious breach of taxpayer data from the Canada Revenue Agency,” it charged him with two criminal counts of illegal cyber activity and alleged he had used

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." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
