FBI probe of Petraeus began
with "suspicious emails"

Reuters, by Tabassum Zakaria and Mark Hosenball

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 11/10/2012 7:16:17 PM

Washington - The FBI investigation that led to the discovery of CIA Director David Petraeus´ affair with author Paula Broadwell was sparked by "suspicious emails" that initially did not contain any connection to Petraeus, U.S. law enforcement and security officials told Reuters on Saturday. But the CIA director´s name unexpectedly turned up in the course of the investigation, two officials and two other sources briefed on the matter said. It was "an issue with two women and they stumbled across the affair with Petraeus," a U.S. government security source said.

Let me guess that the two unnamed women who stumbled across the affair with Petraeus were the Iranian Jarret covering for her boss and the Hildebeast of the famous State Dept.

So after reading the article, it appears they are trying to cover for the WH in this whole thing. If the FBI was investigating him as Rep King stated, for 4-5 months, but no one reported it to the President, isnt that suspect?? And notice there is not a mention of Bengazi in the article.. the MSM are using a scalpel on this story.

According to what I read this morning, the FBI was called in to investigate harassing emails to a woman who was "close to Petraeus." The harrassing emails were traced to Paula Broadwell. So who is the woman "close to Petraeus?" His wife? Another mistress?

There are no other women or threatening emails....the WH had to come up with an explanation for snooping on their CIA director, and pulled the "other woman" out of their arse again.
How else could they explain snooping on the General in the first place?

So here´s an alternative explanation, one that makes so much more sense. Isn´t it strange that a graduate of West Point, a Major, would be so stupid as to send harassing emails to some other woman "close to Petraeus"?

We know Obozo has used damaging personal information to destroy opponents in the past. This "affair" started when Petraeus was mentioned as possible Republican VP material. Would it be so far fetched to think someone, say Valerie J, convinced Broadwell to seduce Petraeus? Maybe in return for something of significance. Then they welch on the deal and Broadwell get´s upset.

Maybe far-fetched, but is it any more far-fetched than everything else coming out of this Administration? It fits there MO.

I had wondered about #19´s theory. At least the part about the Broadwell setup. Too cute.

And if you read a number of articles, you find that the timeline on the affair, and particularly the time when she purportedly ended the affair - dumped him (when he joined the CIA) - and the reports that he continued to pursue her with lots of emails - and then the various times when the FBI was supposed to have been investigating Broadwell´s sending threatening emails to a woman she perceived to be a rival.

If you read enough and have any kind of a memory, you will see that - once again - a timeline related to the Obama administration simply doesn´t add up.

Re #20, sorry about the mess of that post, but I was trying to call attention to a few of the many dates and timelines in this matter that just don´t jibe.

We have heard that the FBI began investigating his emails while he was still in Afghanistan, we have heard that she dumped him when he joined the CIA in 2011, we have heard that he continued to pursue her by email, we have heard that at some point (fairly recently?) she sent harassing emails to another woman she perceived to be a rival, and on and on.

The timeline(s) just don´t hold together.

When Benghazi happened Petraeus held a news conference to state the CIA did not withhold Benghazi support, at that point Obozo had to get rid of him, quick. Knowing Petraeus from when he was at Ft Campbell he is a military leader of integrity ... Petraeus was thrown under the bus by ObozoX because they know he will not lie to support the Obozo lies on Benghazi= Obozo TREASON.... The affair is just misdirection crap to keep everyone from Obozo´s Benghazi treason and Obozo Election Fraud.. Very hard to do

#22, we do seem to have two stories that don´t jibe. Was Petraeus the lovelorn castoff of Broadwell (the "several thousand e-mails/20 per day" from Petraeus to Broadwell after she broke it off), or was Broadwell the lovelorn castoff of Petraeus (the "other woman" e-mail story)? Neither one makes any sense. Love does make people do stupid things, but Petraeus couldn´t have made his position without at least a modicum of self-discipline and a healthy awareness that his e-mail is vulnerable. And "an issue with two women and they stumbled across the affair with Petraeus" makes even less sense. There was a third story, that Broadwell was trying to hack Petraeus´ e-mails, which to me made it sound like Broadwell was a spy for a foreign agency (now THAT would fit the fact pattern; an "author" who never wrote any books doing a biography of the Afghanistan commander who would be a valuable target/asset); but the "two women" story seems to deep-six that one, which leads me to suspect the "Broadwell as spy" story was in fact the true one, with the "two women" story cooked up as cover.

No doubt it will all come out eventually. The crucial thing was to make sure it did not come out before November 6th. Mission Accomplished.

Broadwell has a connection to a war college in London so maybe she is a 007 clone?

If a person will cheat once, he or she will cheat twice, cheaters know that, and is the reason for the suspicious e-mail traffic from one of the women to the other. Whatever happened to the West Point honor code and the tenets of Duty, Honor, Country?

If the FBI really became involved in this in an investigative capacity, it was in a counter-intelligence mode and the real truth will never come out.

If Broadwell had broken off the affair, why would she be upset about another of Petraeus´ girlfriends to the point of threatening her?//Thousands of emails when he´s got something going with someone else? I doubt it.//Petraeus has been a general for a long time and I suspect many women have made themselves available to him. Growing up as an Army brat and serving for 27 years in uniform, I´ve rarely seen an officer´s wife who has let her appearance go like Mrs. Petraeus. Further, for the past decade I suyspect he´s been gone for 90% of the time. I doubt this is the first affair.

I know this is about politics instead of sex, but I just don´t understand Petraeus supporting the Democrats & Obama by his delayed resignation. How can he forget "General Betrayus"? The Obama administration must have more than affair(s) to make him toe the line and come out after the election.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
