UPDATE: Woman who received Petraeus biographer’s threatening emails revealed

New, unconfirmed details emerged this weekend about how the FBI uncovered former CIA Director David Petraeus’ affair with one of his biographers, Paula Broadwell.

The FBI reportedly received a complaint from a third party who claimed to have been the target of harassing emails from Broadwell. The agency’s investigation apparently broadened when it discovered that Broadwell or another individual may have attempted to access Petraeus’ email account.

When the FBI looked further into the matter, according to the conservative website Newsmax, investigators found thousands of emails between the former general and Broadwell, including one that allegedly detailed his fantasy of engaging in sex under his office desk.

“I’m not sure anyone really ‘knew,’ per se,” a senior military source who has worked with Petraeus told Business Insider. “But it’s one of those things that, as soon as the announcement was made, I knew in an instant who it was. Everything made sense.  Who had exclusive access to him?  Who wrote the hagiography on his life? Who framed their entire existence around his persona? It wasn’t hard to make the guess, and the rest is public knowledge now. One day, she’s celebrating her birthday as an accomplished — if you want to use that term — author and PhD candidate, the next she’s Paula Jones.”

    Reports are surfacing that Broadwell had classified documents on her computer. This is about to get real ugly distracting.

    Squirrel !
    Or should I say “Bill Clinton !” ? What does this have to do with Benghazi? Or even Reggie Love?

    Q: In a world where what happens in a closet, stays in a closet, why is THIS man’s private life more important that ANY other man’s in Public Life?

    A: Because ANY distraction from a US Ambassador being sodomized, murdered, and then sodomized some more, is a welcomed distraction

    I believe this woman is part of the plan to take him down. Why was he slated to go to CIA? So obama can blame the Intelligence. Why was he saying about a month ago that he was going to step down and take a job at Princeton? Princeton? Where Van Jones preaches? Was he offered a golden parachute to fall on the sword? This stinks to high heaven and so does Obama. I’m ashamed of where our Country is and the media is just sickening on ALL of this and on Obama, et al.

    Pretty clear to see why Broadwell was feeling threatened by this woman. She has some outstanding qualities.

    While I do not condone it, I cannot help but think of how empty Washington would be if everyone who had an affair were to resign! Definitely, this is a diversionary manipulation of a rather mundane tragedy!
