The FBI and prosecutors in Florida and North Carolina began investigating the possibility of email hacking, because at least some of the emails sent by Ms. Broadwell to the other woman included contents of messages that appeared to come from Mr. Petraeus’s own account, these people said. The Justice Department and high-level officials, including Attorney General Eric Holder, were aware of the investigation for months, having to approve certain parts of the investigation.

Over the course of the probe, prosecutors realized there wasn’t a cyber-breach. Instead, Mr. Petraeus had shared some access to the account with Ms. Broadwell, possibly to exchange messages, these people said.

After examining Ms. Broadwell’s emails, they instead began investigating the possibility that Mr. Petraeus had shared classified information with Ms. Broadwell, which proved not to be the case, these people said.

***

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) says he was told in late October about allegations that then-CIA Director David Petraeus was having an extramarital affair…

“I was contacted by an F.B.I. employee concerned that sensitive, classified information may have been compromised and made certain [FBI] Director [Robert] Mueller was aware of these serious allegations and the potential risk to our national security,” said Cantor in a statement to the Times.

The report says Cantor spoke to the FBI employee after being told by Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.) that someone at the agency had concerns about national security and wanted to speak to a congressional leader about the allegations.

***

A senior intelligence official said Saturday that Mr. Clapper had learned of Mr. Petraeus’s situation only when the F.B.I. notified him, about 5 p.m. on Tuesday, election night…

If the investigation had uncovered serious security breaches or other grave problems, [a government official] said, the notifications would have been immediate. As it was, however, the matter seemed to involve private relationships with little implication for national security…

White House officials said they were informed on Wednesday night that Mr. Petraeus was considering resigning because of an extramarital affair. On Thursday morning, just before a staff meeting at the White House, President Obama was told.

***

The White House says no one there knew about the Petraeus situation before Wednesday and the president himself was informed Thursday. But if the story had broken a week earlier, those headlines would have overtaken much of the president’s message about the middle class and his work in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Who made the decision to wait, and why, is going to be the subject of scrutiny as this scandal continues to unfold…

Petraeus appears to have successfully kept the situation quiet for months, if not longer. He had known for all that time that he was violating the moral and professional code that he cited in his message to CIA employees Friday. And he knew for weeks that the FBI was looking into the situation.

But something made him come forward now.

***

Gen. David Petraeus told friends his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, began after the four-star general left the army in August 2011, sources told ABC News.

Petraeus is said to have been the one to have broken off the extramarital affair…

Investigators uncovered no compromising of classified information or criminal activity, sources familiar with the probe said, adding that all that was found was a lot of “human drama.”

***

CIA officers long had expressed concern about Broadwell’s unprecedented access to the director. She frequently visited the spy agency’s headquarters in Langley, Va., to meet Petraeus in his office, accompanied him on morning runs around the CIA grounds and often attended public functions as his guest, according to two former intelligence officials.

Petraeus’ staff when he was overseeing the war in Afghanistan similarly had been concerned about the time she spent with their boss.

***

News of the affair did not come as a total surprise—not to those who saw Petraeus and “the woman in the case,” Paula Broadwell, together in Kabul during Petraeus’s final year in command there through July 2011. Broadwell had been working for some time on a biography of Petraeus. He had agreed to aid her project: giving long interviews, allowing his staff to talk to her, clearing the path to colleagues and mentors from earlier in his career. By that last year in Kabul, it was clear to all who saw them that the pair had established a close relationship

Petraeus’s staff-group in Kabul was intensely loyal to him. Some had been with him virtually since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. They knew that Petraeus had been deployed for three-fourths of the time since then. By this final tour, he was close to exhaustion. If Broadwell’s company—and transparent admiration— eased Petraeus’s burdens, so be it. When an inquiring reporter asked about Broadwell, late of an evening, a raised eyebrow and a shrug were as far as one staff-officer would go. One of Petraeus’ mentors, a retired army general, did allow that he had cautioned Petraeus. He was sure nothing was out of line, he hastened to say, but “appearances matter.”

***

“I found her relationship with him to be disconcerting,” said a former aide to Petraeus, one of several who insisted on anonymity in order to speak candidly about his former boss. “Those who worked for him never tried to leverage our relationship with him. It seemed to a lot of us that she didn’t have that filter.”…

“She was relentlessly pro-Petraeus,” said a longtime Afghan policy expert who met Broadwell in Kabul. “There was no room for a conversation of shortcomings of the Petraeus theology. She wasn’t a reporter. She struck me as an acolyte.”…

Officers close to Petraeus grew concerned about her posts on Facebook, which they believed sometimes divulged sensitive operational details. The posts, intended for friends back home, were often playfully written and aimed at showing off her adventures in the war zone.

***

As a military expert with ties around the world, Paula Broadwell kept a busy schedule packed with writing, teaching and helping wounded soldiers, leaving little time for the married mother to commit “indiscretions,” a friend told ABC News.

“I have some serious questions about who is connecting these dots and how. … Paula Broadwell is not the type … she isn’t,” said David Bixler, an active duty double amputee who met Broadwell though a charity foundation in 2010…

People close to Petraeus told ABC News they found Broadwell too “gushy” about the general, whom she viewed as a mentor, and commented to each other that they believed the 40-year-old was “in love with him.”

***

Though Petraeus is not expected to testify at the committee’s closed-door hearing [at Benghazi] next week, Chambliss said on ABC’s This Week that Petraeus’s testimony will likely happen later. “He’s trying to put his life back together right now and that’s what he needs to focus on,” Chambliss said.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who chairs the committee, also said Petraeus would likely testify eventually.

Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who has been among Republican senators loudly urging hearings on Benghazi, called it “absolutely essential.”

***

“I don’t know (the) exact date of when all of this process began and what took place there, but we’re — we’re confident that David Petraeus was very straight up with us during the confirmation hearings,” said Chambliss, the vice chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, who said he learned of the FBI investigation that uncovered the alleged affair on Friday.

Woman who got harassing emails from ex-CIA director David Petraeus’ girlfriend asks for privacy – @AP

Congress wants answers on Petraeus affair
*******************************************

WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of Congress said Sunday they want to know more details about the FBI investigation that revealed an extramarital affair between ex-CIA Director David Petraeus and his biographer, questioning when the retired general popped up in the FBI inquiry, whether national security was compromised and why they weren’t told sooner.

“We received no advanced notice. It was like a lightning bolt,” said Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who heads the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The FBI was investigating harassing emails sent by Petraeus biographer and girlfriend Paula Broadwell to a second woman. That probe of Broadwell’s emails revealed the affair between Broadwell and Petraeus. The FBI contacted Petraeus and other intelligence officials, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper asked Petraeus to resign.

A senior U.S. military official identified the second woman as Jill Kelley, 37, who lives in Tampa, Fla., and serves as an unpaid social liaison to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, where the military’s Central Command and Special Operations Command are located.(More….)

Michael Ledeen, who writes for NRO and PJTatler wondered why, if Petraeus knew he was under investigation for this, didn’t offer to resign immediatly, being the (mostly) straight-up guy he was. It would end the drip, drip, drip on him

Perhaps he did want to leave, theorizes Ledeen, but was blackmailed into staying silent and staying on until after the election. If so, was there something else that gave Obama leverage over him.

Ooooo! Bright shiny new [irrelevant] “scandal” to deflect attention away from the looter in chief. I’m still sick to my core about what’s happened to the great country I grew up in. It’s gone.

Petraeus had his chance to expose the sick, twisted, disgusting betrayal that was Benghazi, back when it would have made a difference. He could have at least taken Obama down with him, and he knew he could have done that and we’d all be better off for it. Now, the decline is permanent, and terminal, at least for my own business fortunes. I’ll have to close 2 of my 3 locations this week, lay off most of my staff, and then maybe be able to limp into 2013 with what’s left long enough to find something else to do before the final collapse.

Most likely, all that’s left for me to do at this point is line up for my free sh!t. Too old to start over again now. I hope generation punk-ass who elected this scum enjoys paying for my housing, medical care, food, and cellphone. That is what they voted to do, afterall.

Covert Affairs
A short history of spies and their sex scandals.
NOVEMBER 10, 2012
*****************

As long as there have been spies, there have been spy scandals. Usually, however, it’s because a senior official got hooked up with an enemy spy, most famously like British Secretary of War John Profumo, who in 1963 was “dating” an alleged call girl who was also involved with a Soviet naval official suspected of being a spy. Down he went.

That was a long time ago. And in the half century since, there’s no known record of a Western intelligence chief resigning over the love of a person not his wife.

Until Friday, that is, when the once unsinkable David Petraeus announced he was resigning because of his “extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair.”

The target of his affection was quickly identified as Paula Broadwell, the author of a recent hagiographic book about him, All In: The Education of General David Petraeus.

According to veteran intelligence reporter Ron Kessler, who has a well-drilled pipeline into the FBI, the resignation of Petraeus “followed an FBI investigation of many months” prompted by the interception of an email he sent to the “girlfriend.”

Nothing remotely like that has touched the 19 CIA directors who preceded Petraeus.(More….)

Schumer and Graham amnesty bill? Lovely. Need me some more .223 down here. About to call in broken arrow, except I don’t know who to call. My Senator? McCain? Naaa. Speaking of mistresses, him and Lyndsey seem kinda close…

It is at times like these that I want to just throw my hands up in the air and say, “I quit.”

The Govt is corrupt, the media is corrupt, SCOTUS is corrupt, what do we have left eh?

Not a damn thing…

I think we need to significantly reduce the regulatory burden on the private sector. The Obama administration is doing the opposite. They’re loading on more and more regulation on the private (sector) (without) respect to how the economy functions. – Dick Cheney

I know…

… Dick Cheney, and a number of President Bush’s administration involved in a a $43 Trillion dollar lawsuit and a possible link to murdered children and another assassination because someone in the press reported on it.

You would think it would make headlines all across the world…!

… Oh, wait!

Wow, everyone in the media sure seems interested in this time line.

Perhaps in investigating this timeline, more information on more critical timelines will be revealed.

Axelrod/Obama were blackmailing Petraeus over the affair. Petraeus said no way, I’m going to come clean on the personal affair then tell the truth about Libya.

Not before Congress, but in a “tell all” book. Maybe he can get Broadwell to help him write it.

For cryin’ out loud trooper, buck up!

Did the good guys lose? Yes.

Were we out numbered and playing by the wrong rules? yes.

So what, it has always been that way.

Just imagine if you were a pragmatic libertarian deist. We Those guys ain’t won anything yet.

On Thursday morning, just before a staff meeting at the White House, President Obama was told.

If you believe this you are an incredible fool and nothing will ever change that.

Every day, millions of men around the world make fools of themselves over a woman. Some of them even throw their lives away just for a piece of ass. Excuse my language. Such is life.
