Holly Petraeus: The
Woman Behind the General

Daily Beast, by Nina Strochlic

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/11/2012 5:52:36 AM

Earlier this year, Gen. David Petraeus praised his wife Holly, calling her “the greatest source of support, wise counsel, and love that any soldier could have.” And two days ago, he apologized to his former colleagues at the CIA for “engaging in an extramarital affair.” Such behavior, he wrote, “is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” It has since become clear that the other woman was Paula Broadwell, Petraeus’s biographer. But who is the woman whose forgiveness matters most in the coming weeks?

Comments:
Dump him, Holly. Very publicly.

It´s hard for me to believe his wife didn´t know about it most of the time.She had a nice Obama patronage job,so why rock the boat. This wouldn´t have come out at all if not for the hearings.People inside the beltway have affairs all the time,it´s part of the culture no matter how well intentioned the participants are.

Did Huma divorce Weiner? No in fact they just got a very expensive condo in NY,I believe.Has anybody seen the divorce filings by Hillary Clinton?

Of course his wife wants to save face now that it´s out but I seriously doubt the affair is even over.

I hope the General stays "healthy" long enough to write a book. Hope he has a body guard.

I admire Holly tremendously. I, too, was an Army wife and moved 23 times over our time in. During two long years in Vietnam, I was the sole parent for our three kids. It was extremely hard. I support Holly in whatever she chooses to do, because she has been a great advocate for military families. It is not a "cushy Obama job", but a much needed one. On the other hand, I know the general is being tarred and feathered for his "human moment". The other woman, from all accounts, pursued him until she got what she wanted. Then she dropped him. I still admire what the general did, but feel sadness for him. Will the weak moment erase all the good he did? No, not in my book.

This is truly a timeless tale. A Greek tragedy worthy of Euripides or Sophocles, or at least the Homeric myths. The faithful Penelope patiently waiting for Odysseus to return from the Trojan wars, while he succumbs to the lure of Circe.

On a more contemporary note, it´s not at all unusual for successful, driven men to marry mother surrogates, care for them deeply, yet succumb to the intoxicating siren song of the young, attractive pursuer, who herself succumbs to the aphrodisiac of closeness to power. Washington, Manhattan, Hollywood are full of such liaisons. And always will be.

Just because she appears "older" looking now, after raising her family pretty much alone, does not make her look like a "surrogate mother figure."
She was quite thin and better looking than him in their wedding photo.
If anything, he´s the dog.

First, let me say I am on Holly´s side, I think she is in the moral right, and no, I don´t think she HAS to do what I advise.

But would it be that much trouble for a woman of her stature to get a bottle of hair dye and do a diet? Here she´s married to this fitness nut - can´t she ask him to go jogging a bit with her too? And I have no doubt HE knows where to go get a bottle of hair dye. I am baffled as to why she let herself go when she´s in the wealthy, high-stature position she is in now and can easily fix her frumpy look. It just seems like a natural female thing to do, so I am wondering why she doesn´t.

Her husband remains a rat and obviously, she should not have to compete with young vixens when she has been a good and faithful wife all these years. She should do with that rat what she thinks best now.

I feel sorry for Holly on this. The glare is on her too. She will be compared and contrasted with that Broadwell woman. Observers - including other women - always compare women´s appearances. It´s a sad fact of life that women are always remarked upon whereas the men can be ugly as a Dachsund and not get the acid glare.

I have been in Holly´s shoes. Colonels and Generals are targets for every horny woman wandering around the military posts and bases...especially those posts where wives are not allowed. David Petraeus was a weak and stupid man; Broadwell wasn´t his first girlfriend. You can bet on that.

Just a word to the ignoramus, Nina Strochlic, who wrote the article. David Petraeus NEVER enlisted...he was commissioned. There is a difference.

If we are going to base a relationship and commitment on looks, then she should never have married him in the first place because in their younger picture she is quite cute and he is ugly.

The wizened and creepy henry kissinger said that ´power is the ultimate aphrodesiac.´ He was correct.
But people in positions of power are supposed to resist the temptations, and keep a lock on reality. As a professor/dean, I had many many opportunities to take advantage of my position. And it became amusing, at times, to see the lengths to which young women would come at me, and my colleagues.
Petraeus is no saint. I doubt this was a one time situation. There are probably lots of women who he practiced coitus with.
And whether or not his wife had grey hair had nothing to do with it.

Princeton Petraeus, head of the CIA, not a James Bond kind of guy...but here we are with a "sex" scandal with the top spy! Who woulda thunk it?

As to that "frumpy" wife...kinda reminds me of John Edwards late wifey. Too bad.

As to Jon Stewart, resident "court jestor" for all to see (while he lines his pockets with gold at other´s expense!), gets the "head huntress" out into the public for an examination. Yea, she was "hot to trot" for numerous reasons.

I next want to see the television interview by Jon Stewart with the bimbo´s husband.

Then again, will Princeton Petraeus give the truth about Bengazi and Obama, or will he remind himself of the tapes and pictures that others may have of his little ding dong?

I would like to know more about this "threatening" email that was sent to another woman and how the disgraced General´s name got on it. I don´t believe for a second this was the beginning of it all... and if so..what was the threat? I am glad he stepped now...now I hope he does the right thing and testifies about who gave the order to let 4 Americans get butchered and sodomized by the Muslim animals..until he does that..he is nothing more than treasonous cowardly trash..just like the whore he was messing with..
To all the posters who claim the wife should have done more for her looks... like the whore? A military wife has way more going for herself than what she looks like...The wife has just as much to do with her husband´s success as he does... I have watched my daughter do her duty as a military wife and she grew to be a strong self reliant woman.. NEVER relegate the wife to nothing more than looks or gray hair. I can guarantee you...she earned everyone of them...
And now General, your wife will probably stand by you. I suggest you do the same for this country that has honored and helped you. Tell the damn truth..

It is interesting to me that somewhere above me is the remark that Holly should get a bottle of hair dye and change her frumpy look. Really? When a man in his position, spends most of his days overseas fighting wars...she is left to raise her family, tend to the business of the home and maintain a calm that he will return home unharmed. Somehow, this hair dye person has tried to turn the fault on Holly because of her looks! Really? She is not a Hollywood has been. She is a wife, and mother and a woman not beneath going out of her home to work. Something that is unusual among the elite in this society. It is what it is. A woman set her sights and a man fell for the adoration of a younger woman. It happens everyday, everywhere. It is called weakness, temptation and has nothing what so over to do with hair dye and body weight.

Interesting thread. People reveal a lot about themselves through their reactions to a story like this.

It would be fascinating to read a psychological profile of this Broadwell babe. Considering her enormous drive for accomplishment and ruthless competitiveness, I´d say there´s some fruitcake up there behind her eyebrows. What serious female biographer would show up for an interview on a national television program dressed as provocatively as she did? Trying to please/impress/replace an emotionally absent Daddy? Was Daddy a military man?

Her husband is a radiologist who has subordinated himself and his needs considerably to her career drives. He´s either an extremely loving man or is frankly overwhelmed by her. It would be easy for a woman with a penchant for all things military to see Petraeus as a father figure. Maybe it´s borderline personality disorder. She blinded herself to her precarious position and assumed enormous risks.

It is a long flight, but one Texas governor has a singular calling. Rick Perry has departed for the Republic of Palua, where many thousands of U.S. forces saw fierce fighting during the Pacific campaign of World War II on the islands of Peleliu and Angaur. Mr. Perry has joined up with the BentProp Project, an independent group that has indexed crash sites of 29 American aircraft - Corsairs, Avengers, B-24s and cargo planes.

For another, they all voted for John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. For yet another, they are the most likely places for Republicans to pick up Senate seats, thus taking control of the upper chamber, in 2014. These three facts are related. Much ink has been spilled about the “coalition of the ascendant” that the Democrats have formed, which essentially consists of young professionals, nonwhite voters, and gentry liberals.

A fault line discovered in the 90s is rattling nerves in Southern California, where millions have been living on shaky ground. The 25-mile Puente Hills thrust fault, which slices below Los Angeles neighborhoods, downtown skyscrapers, bridges and freeways, could cause catastrophic damage. A week ago today, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake on the fault broke water mains, cracked foundations, and triggered a rock slide. Experts say a 7.5 would be devastating -- and if the Big One struck, it could kill as many as 18,000 people and displace 750,000. That’s because much of Los Angeles’ infrastructure isn’t earthquake-proof. Bridges aren´t built to modern earthquake

The Unemployment Puzzle:

A big puzzle looms over the U.S. economy: Friday´s jobs report tells us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.7% from a peak of 10% at the height of the Great Recession. But at the same time, only 63.2% of Americans 16 or older are participating in the labor force, which, while up a bit in March, is down substantially since 2000. As recently as the late 1990s, the U.S. was a nation in which employment, job creation and labor force participation went hand in hand. That is no longer the case. What´s going on?

At parties, Charlie Chaplin could usually be counted on to liven up the atmosphere. Determined to be the centre of attention, he’d mime the parts of a bull and matador or dance with invisible balloons. Then, using his skills as a mimic, he’d pretend to be one Hollywood leading lady after another — in the throes of love-making. Whether he’d slept with them all is open to doubt, but he was incorrigible in making advances to female film stars. He boasted frequently about his conquests, and eventually confessed to having had sexual relations with more than 2,000 women. What did they all

That pool was the most ornate of the nine oversized pools at The Phoenician, the over-the-top, 130-acre Arizona resort built by Charles H. Keating Jr., the soon-to-be disgraced financier who would become the face of the savings-and-loan crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

A fortnight ago, as the federal government took to the courts to defend a rule that deliberately burdens the consciences of America’s more religiously devout entrepreneurs, the professional Left adopted the position that companies do not have consciences, griped that a harsh separation of the public and the private spheres was a recipe for the suffering of unpopular or put-upon individuals, and insisted that any links between the activities of an employee and the deeply held beliefs of his boss should be

Despite the violence and uncertainty surrounding this Saturday’s election for a new Afghan President, there’s one positive —Hamid Karzai, the sitting president and the architect of much of the country’s unrest, is not on the ballot this time. But while Karzai must cede power under the rules of the Afghan constitution, the other leader whose mismanagement helped tank Afghanistan abandoned his influence in what he once called “the right war” a long time ago. That leader is President Barack Obama. An outright winner is unlikely

"I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.
