Daily Caller

The woman with whom former CIA Director David Petraeus had an affair has been identified as Paula Broadwell, the co-author of a recent biography about the retired four-star general.

Broadwell is currently under FBI investigation for improperly trying to access Petraeus’ emails and possibly gaining access to classified information, NBC News reported Friday, the same day Petraeus resigned from his post as director of the top U.S. intelligence agency. He cited the extramarital affair as his reason for stepping down.

Holly Petraeus, the general’s wife, is employed in the Obama administration’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Her work involves advocating on behalf of military veterans and their families.

    Okay, seriously?! Are we really going to go along with this fiction that this was about an affair?! Really? Come on! We know how the left feels about cheating on your wife. It’s only sex! It shouldn’t interfere with anyone being able to lead! Isn’t that what they think?

    This is about Benghazi.

    They are crucifying him for the exact same reason the guy who made that video nobody saw is now sitting in prison.

    Welcome to America in 2012.

    Crucifying him? You make it sound like he wasn’t complicit. He worked for the Obama administration. I have (a little) more sympathy for Broadwell than I have for Petraus.

    More straw dogs, “She was attempting to access his E mails”. The affair was over when he left Afghanistan over a year ago.

    He was forced to resign after the agency said it didn’t issue a stand down order and was facing congressional inquiry to find out just who did.

    Why does this surprise anyone? Everything about these goons is straight out of the socialist/commie/fascist playbook. Expect more. Way moe as the purge begins.

    He could have just resigned, not unusual in a new/re-elected administration. He would have been given a fond farewell, retired in obscurity.
    If any hint of impropriety emerged it wouldn’t have gained and “legs”. Who would care?

    The outing of an extra-marital affair is the unbelieveable part.

    I guess there was no security risk when Bill had Monica “under the desk”; so there was no need for him to resign.

    Doesn’t help that Mrs. Petraeus looks like Mr. Petraeus with a wig on, but an oath of marriage is an oath of marriage.

    Affairs can happen anytime anywhere. But come on, Mrs. Petraeus looks like a frump. For God sakes, maybe get to the hair dresser once a month and learn to use a tad of make up. And lose a little weight along the way. Act like you want to keep your man, not “I got him 37 years ago so now I can get fat and lazy”.

    She probably needed a Susan Boyle makeover 36 years ago.

    I doubt Broadwell was the first piece of strange the good general has driven his Abrams into.

    General Petraeus’s wife walked in while he was having sex with Mrs. Broadwell…

    She said, “You can’t do this to me!”

    He said, “I know… that’s why I’m doing it to her.”

    From what I know about the obama administration, Broadwell could very well have been working for the administration and was pointed at Petreus from the get-go to control him via extortion.
    There is no difference between these people and the old Chicago racketeers the emulate.

    And this is just the beginning of the fascist steamroller. How far will America allow this lumbering, deadly machine to roll over and squash every bit of opposition or threat to its ultimate goal?

    Since the end of WWII Americans have haughtily and smugly denigrated the German people for allowing Hitler and the nazis to come to power and for not rising up and taking those bastards out when they finally understood how heinous they really were.

    Well everybody, here we are! We listened to Obysmal’s steamroller idling, idling, idling at the top of the hill for the last four years. He got re-elected, the clutch has been engaged, it’s in first gear and we are now watching the first victims getting squashed as it trundles down the hill towards the general populace.

    It will gain momentum despite the increasing number of victims it will roll over. So I ask America, how do we want people in the future to be re-telling our story? Did we stop this damnable steamroller when we had the chance, or did we stand aside and watch as the streamroller trundled past and squashed the other guy, the other neighborhood, the other business, the other religion, etc.?

    Well the best that can be said about this is that at least Petraeus wasn’t a breech loader like his gay commander in chief. obama has had more torpedoes loaded up his tube than the entire Navy’s fleet of nuclear attack submarines.

    All you extremists on this thread calling for this woman to be stoned to death for adultery need to abandon your hate speech, threats, and radical Christianity and move to a more peaceful belief system like Islam.
