More on Petraeus–UPDATE & CORRECTION

Lots of breaking news today on L’Affaire Petraeus and lots of bullshit info being put out into the press.

Let’s deal first with the facts we know:

1. FACT–David Petraeus had an extra marital affair with Paul Broadwell.

That’s it. That’s the fact.

AP is out with a story claiming that Broadwell was sending threatening messages to another woman, Mrs. Jill Kelley, who per AP:

A senior U.S. military official identified the second woman Jill Kelley, 37, who lives in Tampa, Fla., and serves as the State Department’s liaison to the military’s Joint Special Operations Command, where among other duties, secret drone missions are worked on.

The military official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the investigation, said Kelley had received harassing emails from Broadwell, which led the FBI to examine her email account and eventually discover her relationship with Petraeus.

A friend of Kelley and Petraeus, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, also said the two saw each other often, but the nature of their friendship was unclear.

Okay, here is your bullshit alert.

Jill Kelley is not a State Department officer and Joint Special Operations is not located in Tampa. Tampa is home to two military commands–Special Operations Command aka SOCOM and Central Command aka CENTCOM. State Department officers assigned to SOCOM and CENTCOM are known as POLADS. Kelley was not a POLAD. It appears she was working for some other government agency. The press is implying that Kelley was another paramour of Petraeus. Be very careful about that. There is no proof of a romantic relationship.

This story is going to get much messier. With Petraeus now outed the White House will be unable to continue the coverup of what was actually going on in Benghazi.

The Affair Petraeus is a tragedy on several fronts. Paula Broadwell has destroyed her family, especially the lives of her two your children. Remains to be seen if Petraeus is able to save his marriage. Then there is the matter of whether or not Petraeus lied during his background investigation before accepting the CIA post.

It now is clear that the reason the FBI became involved in this is because of the threatening emails a woman tied to him received. I originally assumed it was his wife. Now, based on news reports, it is some other woman. That raises a whole new raft of questions. In any event, threatening, harassing emails reportedly is the reason the FBI got involved. What we do not know is whether or not the emails were actually sent by Broadwell or if someone, say her husband, sent the emails using her account.

We also know that someone who sounds a lot like Broadwell’s husband, writing anonymously, was speaking out about an affair with a “government executive.” The following letter appeared in July in the New York Times:

My wife is having an affair with a government executive. His role is to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership. (This might seem hyperbolic, but it is not an exaggeration.) I have met with him on several occasions, and he has been gracious. (I doubt if he is aware of my knowledge.) I have watched the affair intensify over the last year, and I have also benefited from his generosity. He is engaged in work that I am passionate about and is absolutely the right person for the job. I strongly feel that exposing the affair will create a major distraction that would adversely impact the success of an important effort. My issue: Should I acknowledge this affair and finally force closure? Should I suffer in silence for the next year or two for a project I feel must succeed? Should I be “true to my heart” and walk away from the entire miserable situation and put the episode behind me? NAME WITHHELD

This still does not answer the question of the timing of the Petraeus resignation. Dave Petraeus politicized the intelligence. What do I mean? His job was to ensure that policymakers got the truth. When he testified before members of Congress he lied. He deliberately obfuscated what the CIA was doing in Benghazi and, more importantly, tried to steer Congress away from knowledge that an intel operation not under the control of the CIA was being implemented there.

Then there was the failure of Petraeus to authorize CIA security forces to go immediately to the aid of the Consulate when it came under attack. If the Obama’s White House was shipping arms to jihadists in Syria, then he needs to explain why he was arming Al Qaeda. That is the real scandal. Petraeus diddling his biographer is side show.

  • jrterrier

    not to worry, i’m going to call one of my FBI agent friends. i’m sure he’ll tell me the lowdown (this is a joke). isn’t that how this investigation supposedly began in the first place when Jill Kelley mentioned the email to her FBI friend. THIS IS NUTS!!!

    and did you guys see the comment in the WSJ about the FBI agent in Tampa. He was taken off the case because he had earlier sent shirtless photos of himself to Kelley. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324439804578115410189757452.html

    Gawd. what is wrong with people. no wonder they’ve charged the wikileaks guy. all the govts in the world would be brought down by idiots texting, emailing, sexting.

      Just as commercials for hard liquor were long-ago banned from TV, maybe so should Erectile Dysfunction ads. And lately I’ve even noticed an increasing number of commercials for testosterone supplementation. The goal of hyper virility seems to be having a deleterious effect on society!

  • akaPatience

    The raid of Paula Broadwell’s home is a frightening development. I JUST read an article that reported the emails from Mrs. Broadwell to Mrs. Kelley weren’t really threatening but instead harrassing, and that the FBI almost didn’t get involved (and probably only did so because Kelley has a friend in the FBI). Plus, the same report in the Daily Beast (linked below by sowsear1) said there were no breaches as far as classified info goes. Now this! WTF???

    • jrterrier

      my thoughts exactly. and i thought the reason the Pres hadn’t been notified earlier is because they decided that nothing but an affair had taken place. What is this about? that she accessed or was given classified info?
      WTF for certain.

      • akaPatience

        I wonder if Chicago thuggery is at work? After all, the FBI is under Holder’s Justice Dept. If I were Petraeus or Broadwell, I’d be fearful.

      Susan Rice????

      “…Rice’s description, days after the attack, of a protest gone wrong indicated that she either intentionally misled the country or was ­incompetent, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday. Rice, he said, “would have an in­cred­ibly difficult time” winning Senate confirmation as secretary of state.

      But several White House officials said Obama is
      prepared to dig in his heels over her nomination …”

  • TeakWoodKite

    So let me get this straight, ’cause I wouldn’t want to think about how it all got started…

    The Annex was a “diplomatic” front for weapon shipments to al Qaeda …
    The Annex was a “diplomatic” front for rendition, and “enhanced” interrogation….
    The Annex was a “diplomatic” front for a rally point ; Jihadists bound for Syria….
    The Annex was a “diplomatic” front for a profit center for Obama Inc. Where is Valerie’s cut?

    The Annex was a “diplomatic” front for the Obama’ Motel 1600 to blackmail one general and relieve a handful of other of their post, and leave 4 Americans to die.

    Is that about all of it? Now we find no one will bear witness to the deriliction of PUS TUS and has devolved into a cat fight?

    Why would Barry need the general out of the way and what would be the quickest? …(me thinks…Where have I seen this before?..) That’s right, Barry pulled this same stunt running for US Senator….

    So back to why… why does the General get diss’ed for conduct unbecoming?.. he’s a civilian… this whole episode of intrigue has gone so Hollywood….like from a script, complete with annotations on Character development in margins.
    This weeks episode of Motel 1600.

    • jrterrier

      maybe it’s not about Benghazi. It’s as simple as wanting a new CIA director that could be controlled; no way that Obama could have asked Petreaus to resign (until the affair became known, that is).

  • akaPatience

    O-M-G, even my stubbornly-Obot husband doesn’t believe Obama only found out about Petraeus a few days ago after the election. He even asked me what rumors were circulating on NQ about Benghazi. This may be a significant development. If someone like him is beginning to wonder what’s going on, there may be hope yet.

    • getfitnow

      With all the eyes looking at this circus scandal, I hope somebody is watching Obama very carefully.

      This would be a good time for him to be playing “Hey look over there!” and pulling some crap.

  • akaPatience

    Question: I seem to recall reading somewhere that the CIA “Annex” (seems a somewhat odd label to me) in Benghazi was a very large facility, but I don’t remember where I read it. Does anyone have any info about it?

    • nickoury
      • akaPatience

        Okay, thanks for that nickoury. Although, the photo and description in the text seems to be that of the Mission/Consulate and not the “Annex”. Wasn’t it reported that on the night of the attack, the Annex was driven to in an armored SUV from the Mission, via treacherous Benghazi traffic? Anyway, it could be that what I read about the Annex being a very large facility was incorrect.

        • jrterrier

          i think there were nearly 2 dozen people holed up at the annex waiting to be rescued so it had to be relatively large. although i supppose that all those people may have lived elsewhere and just gone or taken there because it wa the “safe” house.

        • nickoury

          Ok. If you want that info you’ll have to check with Paula/Glenn.

  • JohnnyTwoDog

    I get the feeling that at the base of this story is not who was in bed with Patraeus rather a who’s who list of influential people in bed with OFA.

    Ok here is what I really want to know. Why did someone in the FBI break procedure and run to Eric Cantor? Sounds like somone needs to get a OPR complaint slammed against them. This is bullshit!

    • jrterrier

      apparently, the agent who broke rank is the original FBI agent, who was taken off the case when supervisors discovered that he had earlier sent a shirtless photo of himself to Jill Kelley. Although at this point, I’m not certain whether anything we are reading is accurate.

      • Popsmoke

        If any of this is true then the FBI needs to deal with this harshly. No federal agent should be allowed to breach his or her oath or responsibility when NO crime or security breach has been committed and when any US Attorney who has the say so, says no go…

        • mgm

          Popsmoke, why are you in such high dudgeon about one FBI agent…when we know so little about what actually took place? How do you know that no crime or security breach had been committed?

    If anyone here has ever seen the FX show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, have you noticed an oddly strange similarity?

    Talk about separated at birth, Broadwell and Glenn Howerton could easily be considered TWINS, or possibly even the SAME person. Don’t take my word for it, have look for yourself:

  • TeakWoodKite

    This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out,” Broadwell’s dad, Paul Krantz, told the Daily News outside his home in Bismarck, N.D.

    “There is a lot more that is going to come out,” said Krantz, claiming he was not allowed to elaborate. “You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.”

    Dad knows.

        Thanks for the link, HObama. Now we’re getting somewhere. I mean, all those photos are crucial, because how can we tell the players without a playbill.;-)

        We have questions that need answers here. Is there some reason why Petraeus doesn’t choose to liason with blondes? Is Broadwell”s father going to take this besmirching of his daughter lying down? Where is the father getting his inside information that he’s not allowed to elaborate on? WHO put the gag on him? I hope his information source is someone more reliable than an ex- CIA Director.

        Finally, will we now get the answer to that most vital of questions: Why does Petraeus have no neck?

    • getfitnow

      This has the stink of Axelrod’s Chicago machine and Eric Holder all over it.

  • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

    Let’s just revisit history and explain a little bit about the “Whitey Tape” to people who might not have been around here when that was a topic. This was during the 2008 election. Larry had a source tell him that there was a tape of Michelle Obama floating around somewhere that recorded her blaming “Whitey” for a host of issues. I’m not sure who had the tape. Whoever had it, decided not to release it. Kind of like the Rashid Kahlili tape the LA Times has showing Obama supporting Palestinian terrorists that they won’t ever show to the public.

    Now, the left knew about the Whitey Tape – and their explanation for it was that Michelle Obama was actually saying “Why’d he” instead of “Whitey.” As in, “Why’d he stop minorities from advancing in life” or something like that.

    So the tape was not something Larry himself had, and the left knew it existed and made up a plausible denial for Michelle if it ever did get released. My understanding is that McCain had it and chose not to release it for whatever the reason. But it’s been a while, and I might be wrong on a few minor points here. At any rate, it’s ridiculous to ding Larry on this issue, because he was simply reporting something a credible source told him.

    • Theymustbemorons

      Amen.

    • HObama HObamanana

      I always thought it was just Michelle bitching about white tea. You know how fussy she is.

      • jayhg

    • JohnnyTwoDog

      Bob Beckel also reported it, but he just refered to it as a video tape and not the Whitey Tape. Beckel sad he had heard about it from someone he considered extremely reliable.

      • jayhg

        Umm…no…I was here, and I read this blog DAILY and I also wrote an article for it once! Under my old username “Hillary or Bust.” And Larry did not have the tape nor did he promise to release something he did not have himself.

        • jayhg

          You’re someone….or maybe not.

  • retire05

    Let me point a couple of things out to all of you: we are told that the “affair” happened in Afghanistan, and that Broadwell broke it off once she returned stateside. Ok. But now we are being told that Broadwell created at least three proxy email accounts in order to harass Jill Kelley, who just happens to be close personal friends with both David, and Holly, Petreaus. Do any of you really believe that a woman who ends an affair is going to try to intimidate/threaten/harass another woman she most certainly knows is a family friend? Does any of that make any sense to you? Larry?
    Larry is right. The diddling is a side show; a shell game. Look at the sex, ignore what was really going on, like what is coming out about the housing of Libyan rebels at the CIA annex in Benghazi in opposition of direct orders from the Oval Office, and the gun running to not only the Libyan rebels who have turned out to be AQ, or an affiliate, as well as running, illegally, weapons to Syria.
    The nation doesn’t trust the White House or Congress, nor the media, who lies with regularity. But Americans still trust our military and our intelligence officers. They are the last standing representation of the trust Americans have in their government. This administration has to destroy that trust because it plays against them. Napolitano tells us that we must worry about our returning military who have guns and God symbols stickers on their bumpers, along with maybe a Ron Paul sticker. They are a threat because they are all damaged goods. We can’t trust our military so we must not trust our intel officers who stand that wall in our behalf. That, friends, is the game plan.
    Petreaus must, MUST, come clean on Benghazi. It is his only salvation. He can weather a sex scandal. He can’t weather being a traitor to his nation.

    • jayhg

      I know you folks are desperate to make Benghazi happen, but I’m here to tell you it won’t……..not until Larry releases the whitey tape!

      • randi

            • jayhg

              Nope, I’m asking Larry… Where’s the whitey tape. He’s the one who promised.

              • DianaLC

                So, the reason four Americans had to die in Benghazi without any of the available help being ordered to go to their aid is not important to you, but maintaining the ruse that Mechell wasn’t a racist against whites while sitting in Wright’s church is important. I get it.
                O.k. you can go away now. Larry never said he had that tape, though you can’t get that through your thick pacychephalosauraus skull. But we’ll concede that he doesn’t have what he said he didn’t have in the first place.

            You are correct – that approach works with trolls. Bots are a different matter – paid or unpaid, they are a coordinated effort to promote a message and/or divide and conquer. Many have figured out that they are useful. Follow the sites they frequent and read what they post. Tells you which bloggers and/or reporters are close to (or have discovered) the truth. Tells you what the ‘meme’ and approach is gonna be so you can be prepared. If they disappeared – we would be in the dark.

        • jayhg

          Listen, the reason Romney got whipped so bad is cause you folks don’t like to hear any other view but your own. Quit trying to ban folks and grow up. Learn to deal… and also, tell Larry to get on releasing that whitey tape.

        Maybe you should check the news once in awhile. The CIA just denied that there were any prisoners being held at the Benghazi CIA annex since Obama ended all “secret” prisons in 2009.
        Ooops.
        At least THREE terrorist prisoners were being secretly held at the Behghazi CIA annex and were turned over to the Libyans on Sept. 12th, the day after the attack on the compound and the CIA annex.
        So, who do you trust? The administration? And there are no dead Mexicans from Fast and Furious, right?

      Also, if Jill Kelley is such a good friend of Petreaus, why did she go to the FBI and not Petreaus? (At least that’s what I’ve been hearing on “the news.” Ah yeah, “the news.”

    • jrterrier

      the latest reports from Petreaus’ friend is that the affair started a couple of months after he became CIA chief.

  • HELENK2

    now Fox is saying that holder knew about it since last August.
    If he knew, jarrett knew, axelrod knew. whether or not they told backtrack , who knows?

    OFF TOPIC

    Fox also announced there are petitions in 20 states to secede from the United States. That is something that I never thought I would see in my lifetime. They are getting thousands of signatures. I am sure it will not happen, but the fact that the so many people do not feel that this country is their country any more is a terrible thing to see

    • no_longer_a_democrat

      of course Barky knew. Remember they used the same affair type things to hold over Edwards, and Soertero’s first opponent/enemy — Jack Ryan.

      This is how Barky operates, uses people he can essentially blackmail and throw under the bus when needed.

      • jayhg

        But if you get Larry to cough up the whitey tape, we can get old barky, as you call Barack Obama, President of the United States who won RE-ELECTION with a decisive victory over Mittens, out of YOUR white house! Calling Larry to get cracking!!!…

        • no_longer_a_democrat

          you honestly have no clue do you? Most of us here are genuine americans, you obviously think if Barry commits a crime, its all A-OK.

          Most of here were livid at Bush for the crap he pulled. But looks like you’re fine with Barry committing crimes and coverup.

          Barry or dems do it, absolutely fine, repubs or Bush did then, only then should the press cover it. Yep, nice double standard you have there.

          Frankly, I feel sorry for an idiot like you. And for the record, I’m not white, I’m sure to morons like you, anyone is a racist who didn’t vote for that corrupt moron Soetero.

          • jayhg

            I’m all against cover ups….I abhor them!!! That’s why I’m begging for Larry to release the whitey tape that he’s been covering up for so long. In fact, “Barry” would never have made it to YOUR White House if Larry had released the whitey tape four years ago like he promised.

            Free the whitey tape!!

          • jayhg

            …and, since you’re no longer a democrat, you have some free time so why don’t you help Larry find the whitey tape!!! Convince him to set the whitey tape free!!

            • DianaLC

              Your are beginning to sound a little mentally challenged, you know!
              My son when he was a toddler would often beg and beg for something, too. But he had an excuse, being only three years old at the time.
              Does this make you feel better? (If it doesn’t, then you need to learn some of the civility your guy wants us all to have.

              • jayhg

                I think I sound like a person who believed Larry when he said he had the whitey tape. LR, where the hell is it?!???

                • DianaLC

                  I don’t need to see it to believe it. Do you actually believe that Obama was able to get to Indonesia as a U.S. citizen when he was a student in college? If so, you’re an idiot. If not, then why aren’t you asking to see his college records and his visa as Trump did. Couldn’t some charity use that $5 million dollars? You must not be very charitable.
                  Believe me, the truth is out there.

    • HObama HObamanana

      Holder probably knew about it from the start, if he didn’t initiate the investigation/setup/diversion/blackmail scheme himself.

    • Hokma

      One can only hope that the GOP does not cave and fulfills their constitutional responsibility of aggressively pursuing all of these investigations which will likely lead to only one conclusion – articles of impeachment.

      Concerning the petitions, it is a reminder that we are a federal republic with the People having the power and why we were formed to begin with. We have become what the colonists and legions of immigrants were escaping.

      • jayhdavis

        Problem is, even if the House brought impeachment charges against bama, the Senate will NEVER proceed with it- harry will not allow his idiots to vote on it.

        • Hokma

          Of course they will. Investigations and hearing that bring about articles of impeachment take time. It is likely that articles will not be brought until 2014 and in time for the next election. So it would be a safe bet that the impeachment trial would not take place until early 2014 and I would guess that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will make sure it proceeds.

      if the petitions get 25K votes in 30 days, the White House is by law forced to respond.

      • DianaLC

        Where are they circulating?

  • http://twitter.com/MarvinMarks Marvin Marks

    it’s amazing to me that you guys never learn your lessons … stop making up conspiracy theories. if there’s a real scandal, then by all means – enjoy yourselves to it. but when you just make stuff up out of thin air, you lose all respectability. nobody but the crazy right wingers will buy into what you say… you guys live in a bubble world where the Obama presidency is one scandal after another … but in reality Obama has been the most scandal free president in the modern era and you guys look ridiculous.

    • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

      LOL…the only reason Obama is seemingly “scandal free” is because the mainstream media keeps covering for him. And if there really isn’t anything to be worried about…and we’re just a bunch of fringe conspiracy wackos who look “ridiculous,” then WHY WASTE YOUR TIME HERE? You know, I don’t go waste my time trying to convince cult members that the UFO isn’t coming to save them…they don’t have any IMPACT on the rest of the world. But yet you bother to post here? So the fact that you and other Obamabots continue to come here, day after day, to try to slam Larry and this website…well, that shows me that we DO have impact.

      • randi

        I think the ‘bots’ are just doing their job. Ridicule. Dismiss. Deflect. (Always the same – Yawn)

    • randi

      Oh, you are so right. It was the ‘youtube video’. It was the ‘youtube video’, dammit.!!!!! I am so insulted that anyone would dare to question this Administration. It was the ‘youtube video’!!!!! (sarcasm)

    • HObama HObamanana

      Seriously Marvin, aren’t you running a little late for your daily Obama ass kissing?

    • DianaLC

      Yes, that’s only because he has a special team of lawyers using his Soros money and the illegal contributions he gets from out of this country, and his MSM lapdogs to cover up his scandals.
      It’s scandal free only because it’s covered up.
      You might as well understand that we aren’t going to change our feelings about this imposter. Why don’t you go watch that Youtube video no one watched and cause an embassy riot?

    • jrterrier

      Here you go. This is why so many of us, who are fiscally sane, opposed Pres Obama and supported Gov Romney.

    • jrterrier

      Also, look at the Green Energy money that has been handed out by the Administration & compare the names with his bundlers. It’s “scandal free” because an inquiring media is necessary to report on scandals.

  • mgm

    Don’t you just love this comment from (D) Senator Diane Feinstein?:

    “She [Feinstein} also said that there was “absolutely not” a link between the resignation of Mr. Petraeus and the Sept. 11 attack on the United States mission in Benghazi, Libya. The C.I.A. has been criticized for providing a flawed early report about the attack.” (NY Times)

    This is the same Feinstein who said she knew nothing about the Petraeus’ affair and learned about it with the rest of us. And yet she can state unequivocally that there is ABSOLUTELY NOT A LINK between the Petraeus’ resignation and the Benghazi attack. (!)

    Are these Congressional members just born stupid or is it an acquired trait? Or is their arrogance in believing that anything they say will be swallowed whole by the hapless American public the answer?

    It must be the latter, because Feinstein has managed to bamboozle her voters for a long time. The fact that her husband is deeply involved in making mega money in the defense industry is, of course, completely irrelevant.

    • no_longer_a_democrat

      Scum, she’s scum as well. I thought she was one of the few remaining dems left who would put country over party… doesn’t look like it.

      Scumbags, every single one of them. Never thought I would say it, looks like the dems are even worse that repubs. I used to think Bush was bad, looks like the dems and Soetero make Bush look like Gandhi.

      Guess you can get away with anything, and the dems know this, since the American MSM is part of the coverup and will coverup everything and anything for their Messiah.

      • HObama HObamanana

        Feinstein put Obama above country long ago. Every now and then, likely due to her age, she forgets that she is an Obot spokesperson and speaks a slight glimmer of the truth. That’s why you may have been confused into believing that she was a patriot.

    • HObama HObamanana

      I always get confused when trying to determine if Feinstein bamboozled her voters or hoodwinked them. I’m sure there was an okeydoke thrown in there somewhere.

    • JohnnyTwoDog

      Feinstien and husband Richard Blum have many skeletons in their closet going back many years that predate her Mayor of SF gig. Some of them are human, and no doubt OFA knows about and cashes in on every detail.

    Hope this is a call by an extremist with no following. Otherwise, the world is in a lot of trouble. “‘Destroy the idols,’ Egyptian jihadist calls for removal of Sphinx, Pyramids”

      That would be like declaring war on civilization itself. Surely these lunatic, barbarian, savages aren’t that totally ate up.

      • jrterrier

        I just remember that in 2000-2001, the Taliban destroyed a number of Budhist antiquities in Afghanistan. Nothing comparable to the pyramids & the sphinx but nonetheless, those people are just insane. It says something about their cruel backwardness that they are willing to destroy such ancient works of art/religion.
