Quotes of the day

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.

I was for a time engaged in the a rather prolix matter; the non-denumerability of the continuum. However the labor of many longs hours, so fixed in such a noble endeavor had a rather severe effect on my personality. For it has been said that one cannot toil without ill consequence.

I found myself quite happily going mad. Yes I became a mathematical madman. I counted everything. Soon a stream of numbers and symbols unknown to me permeated the dark recesses of my mind as if sent from another time, another place.

I was completely and irretrievably mad and so, as a remedy, took solace in posting one inanity after another on the internet.

Cantor suffered his first known bout of depression in 1884.[22] Criticism of his work weighed on his mind: every one of the fifty-two letters he wrote to Mittag-Leffler in 1884 mentioned Kronecker. A passage from one of these letters is revealing of the damage to Cantor’s self-confidence:

… I don’t know when I shall return to the continuation of my scientific work. At the moment I can do absolutely nothing with it, and limit myself to the most necessary duty of my lectures; how much happier I would be to be scientifically active, if only I had the necessary mental freshness.

Time to subpoena Paula Broadwell and the Other Woman to testify at the Benghazi hearings. NOW. These two probably could blow the lid off the whole thing.

The LSM can’t not cover it now – it’s got sex involved. Terrible dilemma for them though, knowing the scandal goes all the way to the oval office, they’d love to keep the whole thing quiet. But now there’s sex, power, spies, FBI and CIA directly involved. Well, at least I still have some popcorn leftover.

Broadwell went on to explain more details from the Benghazi attacks.

“Now, I don’t know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually, um, had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that’s still being vetted.”

[snip]

A well-placed Washington source confirms to Fox that there were Libyan militiamen being held at the CIA annex in Benghazi and that their presence was being looked at as a possible motive for the staged attack on the Consulate and Annex that night.

According to multiple intelligence sources who have served in Benghazi, there were more than just Libyan militia members who were held and interrogated by CIA contractors at the CIA Annex in the days prior to the attack. Other prisoners from additional countries in Africa and the Middle East were brought to this location. Source

If true, there’s the real reason for the “video” excuse and the cover-up of facts.

Let’s say, just for grins and giggles, that P4 and PB have had this on going thingy for years and that since it wasn’t such a well kept secret that someone in Chicago decided that when P4 retired, he should be offered another govt job. He had been viewed as the next great GOP savior so he would need to be eliminated from that public view. Tap him for the CIA job when he had absolutely no experience as a spook. Does anybody know what it is they really do anyhow? Keep P4 as an ace in the hole for when you need it the most. Benghazi pops up as a bump in the road, and the ace is pulled. Heard late last night that the FBI isn’t even sure PB sent the emails to the ‘other woman’ who looks like an innocent bystander. The info released about her isn’t even correct. Lie after lie after lie. Too many layers on this onion to peel. By the time the msm gets to the core, we’ll be left looking around at the smokin’ ruins of our country.

Thanks! I’m waiting for my daughter’s Girl Scout Troop to get arrested hawking cookies outside Wal-Mart this spring.

I, for one, won’t make it.
