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

Looking for a potential hacker, they found
"what Google´s servers had known all along".

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.

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.

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?

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

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
